Skin Tightening Q&A

Why is my skin loose and sagging?

The primary cause of sagging skin is collagen loss. During your youth, you have a thick layer of collagen in your skin. This provides the padding and rounded contours commonly known as a “baby face.” 

Over time, you naturally lose much of that collagen, and your body won’t replace it on its own. Without the same support, the skin is left to pool and sag into lines, wrinkles, and folds. 

Sagging skin is most obvious in the midface, at the jawline, and in the areas beneath your eyes. Wrinkles and folds develop around your eyes, mouth, and at the sides of your nose. 


How does skin tightening work?

Magnolia Skin Care Clinic relies on the Alma vShape® Ultra treatment platform for skin tightening treatments. The platform uses radiofrequency energy to create changes deep within your skin. 

Most lasers are only suitable for certain skin tones that fall on the lighter end of the scale. A benefit of radiofrequency energy is that it’s safe for all skin tones. Alma vShape Ultra also uses ultrasound technology, a treatment based on sound waves, to enhance skin tightening. 

The system not only tightens skin, but the ultrasound technology also helps reduce fat in the treatment areas. It is suitable for use on your face, abdomen, arms, legs, thighs, neck, flanks, and buttocks. Virtually any area of your body where you would like to improve skin tone and contouring can benefit from Alma vShape Ultra treatments. 


Are vShape Ultra treatments safe?

Any time you are considering technologically advanced treatments, safety should be a consideration. The vShape Ultra system has a well-established track record of safety as well as efficacy. 

Unlike cosmetic surgery, vShape Ultra treatments don’t break the surface of your skin. The system has an integrated cooling function that allows the surface of your skin to remain at a comfortable temperature while heat is generated in the deeper layers. 

There is no need for any form of anesthetic and no recovery time after treatments. Most men and women need a series of six sessions to see optimal results, but you’ll receive a customized treatment plan once your practitioner has had a chance to evaluate your skin and refine your treatment goals.
