Skin Laxity

Skin laxity is characterised by loose or sagging skin. It can become apparent over time, affecting the appearance of the skin in areas such as the face and neck. The loss of collagen and elastin with age, genetic factors, excessive exposure to UV rays, smoking habits, rapid or significant weight loss, hormonal changes and certain health conditions can cause skin laxity.

Choosing a method that best suits your needs, skin laxity can be treated with micro-needling, laser, heat-based treatments and a combination of treatment methods. At Ascension, we personalise our treatments and consider your personal needs to create a suitable treatment plan for you.

Recommended Treatments

To help you choose the right treatment method, you will have a thorough consultation at Ascension.

After assessing the condition of your skin, discussing your personal goals and discussing health and lifestyle factors, we can create a personalised treatment plan with the method of your choice. Using a combination of methods can be an effective option for some patients.

01  / Morpheus8 RF Needling

With a combined approach, using microneedling and radio-frequency (RF) technology, Morpheus8 works to trigger the body’s natural healing response. When the body’s natural healing response is triggered, the production of collagen and elastin increases, which can have a skin-tightening effect.

To sufficiently tighten the skin, you may need multiple treatment sessions with Morpheus8. Morpheus8 can treat skin laxity on the face and multiple areas of the body. Downtime after treatment is minimal, with some minor redness and discomfort subsiding quickly after treatment.

02  /FaceTite

FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL), with a few small incisions. The treatment can remove unwanted fat while simultaneously stimulating collagen and elastin production, prompting the skin to tighten.

The treatment can be a suitable alternative to a traditional facelift, using fewer incisions. FaceTite can treat areas of the lower face, including the cheeks, jawline and chin. Since the treatment does require incisions, downtime can include some swelling and bruising, but your personalised aftercare instructions will help you support your body’s healing process.

03  / Dermapen Microneedling

Dermapen Microneedling works by creating multiple tiny punctures in the skin, focused on the specific treatment area. The tiny punctures will prompt the body’s healing response, stimulating more collagen and elastin.

As more collagen and elastin is produced, it can improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of loose skin. Multiple treatment sessions may be best to achieve noticeable results. Dermapen Microneedling demands little downtime, with minor inflammation and discomfort lasting from 24 hours to a couple of days.

04  / Tixel Skin Tightening

Tixel Skin Tightening uses pure radiated heat in a fast and controlled method, delivering heat for an average of one millisecond at a time. The heat generated within the skin stimulates the skin’s healing response, increasing the production of collagen and elastin.

With minimal downtime, you may experience redness, heat and swelling after the treatment, but this will subside within a few hours to days. The skin can become flaky and dry after the treatment, lasting for one week to 10 days.

05  / Laser Genesis

Using advanced laser technology, Laser Genesis generates heat in the skin, stimulating the production of collagen. Once collagen production is increased, it can improve the skin’s elasticity, reducing the appearance of skin laxity. The heat from the laser is controlled and delivered in pulses, precisely targeting specific areas of the skin.

Candidates usually need about six treatments to achieve sufficient results, but the right number of sessions for you can be discussed during your consultation. The treatment’s minimal downtime can include some slight redness, which typically subsides within a few hours after treatment.

06  /The Ascension Lift

As one of our bespoke Signature Treatments, The Ascension Lift specifically stimulates collagen and elastin production to reduce skin laxity.

Focusing on the face, neck and around the eyes, the comprehensive treatment package includes Morpheus8, Tixel Skin Tightening, and Healite II. Morpheus8 combines radio frequency technology and microneedling, while Tixel Skin Tightening focuses on the skin around the eyes with heat-based technology. Helping to reduce redness, swelling and bruising, as well as have anti-inflammatory effects, Healite II completes the treatment. The total treatment takes about 80 minutes and is associated with minimal downtime.

07  / The Ascension Rejuvenate

Combining two skin-tightening methods, Tixel Skin Tightening and Laser Genesis, The Ascension Rejuvenate makes for a comprehensive skin laxity treatment approach.

The 60-minute treatment is complete with a hydration mask, helping to soothe and smooth your skin after the heat-based and laser treatments. The personalised package can focus on the face, neck and décolletage, depending on your needs.

08  / The Ascension Replenish

Deeply hydrating your skin can help to improve skin elasticity. With a Hyaluronic Acid Infusion combined with skin needling, a hydration mask and Healite II, The Ascension Replenish hydrates the skin, reduces inflammation and has skin-soothing effects. The combination of skin needling and a hydrating formula boosts the level of hydration, as the skin needling increases the absorption of the treatment’s products.

The hydrating treatment can be personalised and takes about 50 minutes to perform. Minimal downtime is associated with the treatment, with some minor redness and discomfort being experienced due to the skin needling. Healite II can help to reduce the skin’s reactions post-microneedling.

09  / The Ascension Event Prep

To stimulate collagen and elastin production, exfoliate the skin and reduce redness and inflammation, The Ascension Event Prep package combines Laser Genesis, a lactic peel and Healite II in a 60-minute treatment.

The Ascension Event Prep package can be ideal for those who want to combine the skin-tightening Laser Genesis with an exfoliating peel and reduce downtime with Healite II. Adding the lactic peel and Healite II can help remove dead skin, reduce bacteria that can cause acne and have skin-smoothing effects.
