As you age, you will probably notice a change in the way that your skin looks. One of the biggest changes is loose skin, which eventually affects everyone to some degree. After all, it’s part of the natural ageing process. However, if you have more loose skin than you would like, or it’s knocking your self confidence, you might want to do something about it. You might also want to improve the appearance of loose skin if it’s starting to appear now, and you thought you had a few left years to go. Luckily, there are a range of loose skin treatment options available to you, one of which is PlasmaPen.

But, there really is no need to go through life being unhappy about your appearance. With PlasmaPen, you can combat loose skin, boosting your confidence and leaving you feeling your best.
What Causes Loose Skin?
A lot about the body changes as we age, much of which can be seen on the face. Fine lines and wrinkles appear, and skin begins to loosen and sag. This is the main cause of loose skin, but it’s by no means the only one. Loose skin is also a common problem that can affect people of all ages, and some people are more prone to it than others. It is caused by the loss of elasticity in the skin, which can be due to a number of factors such as ageing, rapid weight loss and sun exposure.
- Age – As you age, your skin naturally loses elasticity, and this is something that’s difficult to prevent. This is due to a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, both of which give the skin its strength and elasticity. Without collagen and elastin, there is nothing to stop the skin becoming looser.
- Rapid Weight Loss – Rapid weight loss can also lead to loose skin. If you lose weight quickly, or if you lose a significant amount of weight, the skin doesn’t have the time or ability to adjust to the sudden change. Instead of slowly shrinking with your changing body, the skin becomes loose. This is also the case for a lot of women during pregnancy. The skin stretches to accommodate the growing baby and your changing body shape, but it then remains loose after the baby is born.
- Sun Exposure – A lot of people underestimate the impact that sun exposure can have on the skin, and it’s actually a key cause of loose skin. Overexposure to the sun can damage the collagen and elastin in the skin, leading to loose and sagging skin.
Though some people are lucky enough to avoid too much obvious loose skin, a lot of people are not. This is why more and more people are seeking PlasmaPen treatment.
Where is Loose Skin Found?
Loose skin can be found almost anywhere on the body, and it affects people in different ways. A lot of people experience loose skin on their face, neck, arms, stomach, back or thighs. Some people find that their loose skin is specific to one or two areas, whereas others notice it in multiple areas. Depending on the area of the loose skin and how self-conscious you feel about it, it could be something that you want solved. For a lot of people, loose skin can be unsightly, it can affect confidence and it can even be uncomfortable.
What Can Be Done About Loose Skin?
Thankfully, there are things that can be done about loose skin. While some people turn to invasive or complicated options – such as surgical tucks or face lifts – others turn to slightly less effective methods, like specialist creams. However, we always recommend fibroblast treatment as an option worth considering. So, how does fibroblast treatment work?
Fibroblast treatment is a skin tightening procedure that is completely non-invasive, making it a convenient and safe option for tightening loose skin. Using a PlasmaPen device, a specific type of cell called fibroblasts are targeted with a specific amount of energy. This is done without impacting or damaging other cells in the surrounding area. The energy causes a small amount of damage to the surface of the skin, which encourages the targeted fibroblast cells to repair the damage. As this happens and new cells are created, the area becomes tighter and firmer, and the appearance of loose skin is reduced.
There are a number of benefits that come with choosing PlasmaPen to reduce loose skin. For example, there is no downtime and it’s a relatively painless procedure. Also, some of the results of fibroblast treatment are noticeable straight away, but they continue to improve over time. As the new collagen is produced, the skin slowly becomes tighter. The treatment can be used to tighten the skin on various areas of the body, including your arms and face. It can be repeated multiple times to ensure your desired result is upheld.
