Loose skin can be a significant cause for a lack of confidence and self-esteem among people. Irrespective of the amount of workouts you do and the diets you incorporate, saggy skin being a permanent fixture on your body can be disheartening.
What Causes Saggy Skin?
One of the reasons why body skin tightening in Melbourne is so sought after is because loose skin is inevitable no matter what measures you take to prevent it. One of the most common causes is aging.
As you age, the skin starts to sag. This is also common among people who lose a great deal of weight within a short time span.
While elastin and collagen carry out their functions flawlessly in our bodies while we are young, they start to slow down as we age. Their job is to help maintain the elasticity of our skin and offer our body structure. Where elastin helps in stretching our skin the right amount while we are young, with the lack of production of collagen as we age, this becomes difficult.
With very little help from collagen, elastin fails to accomplish what it could earlier, leading to saggy skin.
Over the years, elastin is also affected by wear and tear. Wrinkles are also a result of the loss of elasticity and lack of collagen.
Some of the reasons that affect the elastin and collagen production in our body include:
- Harmful UV rays exposure
- Smoking – The moisture on your skin can be sucked out with constant smoking, resulting in saggy skin.
- Lack of water intake
- Unhealthy diet – Gaining weight can put additional pressure on the elastin and collagen for the skin to stretch.
For people who have undergone pregnancy or lost a significant amount of weight, loose skin is a common scenario.
With all of these being common instances in people’s lives, opting for skin tightening to deal with abdominal fat, crepey neck, saggy arms, and more, is the only option for most people.

An EXILIS ULTRA 360 procedure is painless and quick with no downtime. You can undergo the treatment during a routine part of your day without needing any time off of work. However, you may notice some redness or irritation around the treated area which will subside in a couple of hours. The procedure has no further side-effects and is one of the safest methods of skin tightening.
Each treatment of a specific area usually takes from 4 to 30 minutes.
Depending on the treated area and skin condition, most patients undergo between 2 to 4 treatments scheduled 7 to 10 days apart.

Some patients report visible results after one treatment. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few months.
