The natural aging process, genetic factors, childbirth, weight loss, and other factors can leave you with loose, sagging skin. Everyone has to deal with loose skin at some point, but some people have to deal with the problem sooner rather than later. At LivingYoung Center, we use numerous skin rejuvenation techniques to tighten your skin tissues while encouraging natural collagen production, helping you achieve long-lasting skin tightening results.

Loose Skin: Causes
Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are some of the most important cosmetic components of the skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that holds your skin upright against the force of gravity, ensuring your skin looks firm and taut. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel that retains up to 1,000x its own weight in water, making your skin look smooth, suppler, and voluminous. The gradual loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid because of aging leads to skin laxity.
Loose Skin: Treatment Options
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that allow you to achieve smoother, firmer, and more youthful skin. We use numerous dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse, Belotero, and more to improve your skin texture. Depending on your unique goals, we may inject hyaluronic acid fillers to enhance your skin’s texture and volume or collagen-inducing fillers to catalyze natural collagen production. The results are usually evident immediately, with gradual improvements over several days or weeks.
Microneedling is a unique collagen induction therapy that ensures long-lasting skin tightening results. The cosmetic provider makes numerous micro-channels on the skin’s surface using extremely safe microneedling devices. The micro-channels activate your body’s natural collagen production capabilities without causing harsh skin damage. As your body produces new collagen fibers, your skin looks smoother, firmer, and more even-textured. The results gradually improve over several weeks.
HydraFacial is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation technique that provides three benefits at once — exfoliation, extraction, and infusion. The treatment involves the extraction of oil residue and debris from the skin to open up your pores. Once your pores are open and receptive, the cosmetic provider delivers a unique blend of skincare formulations, such as vitamins, minerals, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, thus making your skin look smoother and fuller.
Chemical peels exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin while delivering a unique blend of vitamins and minerals. We select the ideal chemical peels to catalyze your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, thus restoring youthful levels of collagen. As your body produces new collagen fibers, your skin looks smoother, firmer, and more even-textured. The results are a smooth and glowing complexion with reduced skin laxity.
