BODY sagging Treatment in ibiza
Say goodbye to sagging and show off firm skin
Body sagging occurs with the loss of tone and firmness in the skin and muscle tissues. In addition to the face, the most affected areas are usually the arms, thighs, buttocks and abdomen. Sagging of the inner arms is one of the signs of body flaccidity that most concern women. Another area that commonly suffers from sagging is the breast, due to age, sudden weight loss and especially as a result of childbearing and breastfeeding.
Causes of BODY sagging
Sagging in the skin is mainly caused by the aging process of the skin, since the production of collagen and elastin decreases over the years. The dermis loses thickness as the body forms fewer fibers and part of the subcutaneous fat and muscle mass of the skin is lost.
Sagging of muscle tissue is mainly due to a sedentary lifestyle in which there is no regular physical activity. Other factors can also provoke its appearance or accentuate it. Among them are sudden changes in weight, a diet poor in proteins and high in fats and carbohydrates, or hormonal imbalances such as those caused by menopause. Prolonged exposure to the sun without protection is also very harmful, as it causes the accumulation of large quantities of free radicals in the skin, which cause oxidation and deterioration of the tissues. Excessive solar radiation also causes dehydration and destruction of collagen and elastin. Tobacco consumption or certain drugs such as corticosteroids can also cause flaccidity in the body. Likewise, stress and lack of sleep slow down cell renewal and may contribute to its appearance.
How to combat body sagging
A healthy lifestyle is essential to prevent body sagging. The first step is to follow a balanced diet rich in protein. It is advisable to avoid “miracle diets” that make us lose weight too quickly, because they usually make us lose water and muscle mass, rather than fat. In addition, sudden weight changes cause a consequent sagging of the skin, which means that it becomes flaccid. It is important to choose foods rich in collagen, Vitamin C, sulfur, Omega 3, selenium and zinc, such as oily fish, nuts, seeds or vegetables. On the other hand, excess sugar accelerates the destruction of collagen, so it is advisable to consume sweets in moderation. Drinking about 2 liters of water daily is also essential to provide the body tissues with sufficient water.
In addition, it is essential to exercise regularly, including aerobic exercises and other more specific exercises to treat the muscles of the areas where flaccidity appears. It is advisable to regularly apply firming creams and avoid excessive exposure to the sun, especially without protection.
There are also various aesthetic treatments for body flaccidity that we can use to recover a firm and elastic skin.
Aesthetic treatments against body sagging
There are various aesthetic and medical aesthetic treatments available to combat flaccidity in the body, such as circulatory massages, body mesotherapy, the use of calcium hydroxyapatite fillers, radiofrequency, HIFU technology or shock waves, among others.
Body mesotherapy consists of superficial microinjections that restore the skin’s firming properties.
Another possible treatment is calcium hydroxyapatite fillers, a biocompatible substance that, when injected into the skin, stimulates the production of new collagen.
Radiofrequency is a technique widely used in aesthetic medicine that heats the skin in depth, favoring the creation of collagen and stimulating blood circulation.
HIFU technology works through ultrasound to firm tissues by regenerating collagen and elastin in the skin, without damaging it.
We also have shock waves that, especially in combination with other therapies, can be enormously beneficial to combat body flaccidity.
At Eiviestetic we have the revolutionary Cyclone, which combines several technologies perfect for firming the skin in a single machine: radiofrequency, cavitation and HIFU, as well as lymphatic drainage. It is one of the best and most effective treatments available to combat flaccidity, as the results are visible from the first session. In addition, it is a non-invasive treatment with no side effects.
