Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it works hard to take care of us. That’s why skincare, sun protection, and hydration are so important to your overall health. However, no matter how well you take care of your skin, it will eventually sag and become loose. Let’s explore why skin becomes loose and how a Renuvion treatment uses plasma to tighten the skin.
Why Does Loose Skin Happen?
Loose skin happens for many reasons, but the most common one is aging. As we age, our skin doesn’t produce as much collagen and elastin. These are key building blocks that keep our skin healthy, tight, and elastic. That’s why older skin often looks dull, dry, and stiff. We also naturally lose muscle mass all over the body as we age. A loss of muscle tissue can result in the skin not being properly held up by the underlying structure. This, combined with a loss of collagen and elastin, leads to sagging skin. However, things like extreme weight loss, pregnancy, or illness can cause loose skin.
How Can Renuvion Help?
Renuvion is a plasma-based treatment that is used to tighten the skin and underlying structures. It can be used on the arms, legs, lower face, neck, knees, and abdomen. The Renuvion device looks like a long thin rod that is maneuvered inside the skin to apply the treatment. Small incisions are made for the Renuvion device to reach the full treatment area. The science behind Renuvion may seem complex, but the overall process is rather straightforward.
The Renuvion device generates a tiny amount of local helium plasma. This plasma then makes contact with the connective tissue directly underneath the skin and contracts it at a high temperature. This tightens the skin and induces the body’s healing process. This will not only tighten the skin from the treatment but also induce collagen production to improve results.
Renuvion is an exciting treatment option for someone trying to combat loose skin. Thankfully, Dr. Rachel Walker provides various cosmetic treatments, including Renuvion.
