Why does our skin sag as we age?

Collagen and Elastin: The Building Blocks of Skin Structure

To comprehend why skin sags, we need to acquaint ourselves with collagen and elastin—two fundamental proteins that contribute to the skin’s structure and elasticity.

Collagen: Collagen is a fibrous protein that acts as the scaffolding for our skin. It provides the framework that keeps the skin firm, supple, and youthful.

Elastin: Elastin, as the name suggests, gives the skin its elasticity, allowing it to snap back into place after being stretched or moved.

A key player in the sagging process is the gradual reduction of collagen and elastin production as we age. Starting in our mid-20s, the body’s natural production of these proteins begins to decline. This reduction becomes more noticeable as we move into our 30s and beyond.

As collagen levels diminish, the skin’s underlying support structure weakens. The once-strong network of collagen fibers loses density, resulting in a loss of skin firmness and the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the decline in elastin contributes to decreased skin elasticity, making it more susceptible to sagging.

External factors, such as exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and environmental pollutants, can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers. UV radiation, in particular, triggers the production of enzymes that degrade collagen, leading to premature sagging and aging. Unhealthy lifestyle choices like smoking and poor diet can also exacerbate skin sagging by contributing to oxidative stress and inflammation.

Understanding the science behind skin sagging empowers us to make informed decisions about our skincare and aging gracefully. While we can’t halt the passage of time, we can take steps to support our skin’s health and vitality. By nourishing our skin, protecting it from environmental damage, and considering treatments that promote collagen production, we can embrace the journey of aging while maintaining the natural beauty that defines us.

What is HIFU Skin Tightening?

HIFU Skin Tightening is a  revolutionary skin-tightening procedure that helps you to lift and smooth sagging skin without surgery. HIFU Skin Tightening works by concentrating beams of ultrasound onto skin that has lost laxity, usually due to the natural ageing process. This process strengthens the underlying tissues in weakened skin while also stimulating your body’s own natural production of collagen. Subsequently, your skin continues to improve for many weeks after treatment! 

What areas can I treat with HIFU?

While skin sagging is part of the natural ageing process, the HIFU Skin Tightening Treatment at Vie Aesthetics in our London and Essex clinics is considered to be the go-to tightening solution, and for good reason. 

How does HIFU work?

In order to reverse the ageing process, and the decline of elastin and collagen as mentioned previously, HIFU sends ultrasound energy to selected depths below your skin’s surface. This causes small injuries to the underlying tissue. As that tissue heals, new collagen is produced, gradually giving you a natural rejuvenating effect.

We use the latest technology devices by Levura and Perfecte’me to deliver energy to the dermal tissue.  This traumatises the treatment zone, which promotes healing, contraction, and collagen stimulation. During the treatment sessions, your skin becomes firmer!

I absolutely love Vie Aesthetics – from the minute I walked through the door the staff were welcoming, friendly and caring. I was instantly put at ease and the treatments were amazing. I tried HIFU neck and jaw and wow!! Wish I had discovered this before.

Let the results speak for themselves.

The proof of HIFU’s effectiveness lies in the remarkable before-and-after transformations. Individuals who undergo HIFU skin tightening treatment experience a visible improvement in skin laxity, resulting in a firmer, more lifted appearance. But don’t just take our word for it—let the stunning before-and-after photos do the talking.

Before HIFU:

  • Noticeable sagging in the cheeks, jawline, and neck.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles giving an aged appearance.
  • Decreased skin firmness and elasticity.

After HIFU:

  • Lifted and tightened skin in the treated areas.
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Enhanced overall facial contour and definition.

HIFU Treatment for the Body

HIFU Treatments can also incredibly be extremely effective for body slimming. Our advanced technology can help eliminate localised fat in parts of the body, such as around the thighs or hips. In this case, the treatment blasts stubborn fat cells with controlled energy, which heats them up and safely destroys them. As the damaged fat cells are gradually expelled by the body by its natural process, the skin in the area is also tightened. 

Why Choose HIFU Skin Tightening?

1. Non-Invasive Nature: HIFU is a non-surgical treatment, which means no incisions, no anesthesia, and minimal to no downtime. You can walk out of the clinic with minimal to no visible signs of treatment.

2. Natural-Looking Results: The gradual stimulation of collagen production by HIFU ensures that the results unfold naturally over several weeks, avoiding the “overdone” look associated with some invasive procedures.

3. Precision and Safety: HIFU technology allows for precise targeting of specific areas, ensuring that surrounding tissues remain unaffected. This makes it a safe option for a wide range of skin types and tones.

4. Convenience: Each HIFU session typically takes less than an hour, making it a convenient treatment option for those with busy schedules.

5. Long-Lasting Effects: The results of HIFU are long-lasting, with the benefits continuing to improve over a few months as collagen production continues.

HIFU Skin Tightening | Combination Treatments

To enhance and boost the incredible results of HIFU Treatment, there are several complementary treatments that can be combined to further improve skin tightness and overall rejuvenation. These treatments can work synergistically with HIFU to provide enhanced outcomes.

Here are a few options:
  1. Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers can be used in combination with HIFU t to address volume loss and enhance the contour of the face. Fillers can restore volume to areas such as the cheeks, temples, and jawline, which can contribute to a more youthful and lifted appearance. By combining HIFU’s skin tightening effects with fillers, a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation can be achieved.

Dermal Fillers

Whether you’re concerned about fine lines, deepening grooves or sagging skin, our Dermal Fillers can give you back a younger, rejuvenated appearance!
  1. Anti-wrinkle injections: These can perfectly complement the results of HIFU by targeting dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements. These injections temporarily relax the muscles responsible for expression lines, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. You can help smooth out wrinkles and create a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance!

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

What are you waiting for?
  1. Chemical Peels: Chemical peels can enhance the results of HIFU Skin Tightening by promoting exfoliation, improving skin texture, and enhancing overall skin tone. Peels can help address fine lines, sun damage, and superficial pigmentation concerns. By removing the outermost layers of the skin, chemical peels can enhance the penetration and effectiveness of HIFU treatments.
