Treatment options at SpaMedica include a number of different therapeutic interventions that can either be excisional or non-surgical and can lead to a very significant rejuvenation of your old-looking skin of the neck or hand or upper arm, back, inner thigh and above the knee. Old-looking skin in general, whether of the neck or back of the hands, décolleté or any area of the body, is generally caused by a combination of hereditary and genetic factors.
Surgical treatments for old-looking skin of the neck generally include relatively minor mini-neck lifts to re-position the loose skin and laxity as well as tighten any neck bands or cords. Those individuals that are not interested or prepared to undergo skin excision procedures have a wide array of successful laser and energy-based systems that have been pioneered by Dr. Mulholland to reduce the old and aged appearance of their skin.
Fractional Laser & RF Needling
Fractional laser technology such as fractional CO2 (Fraxel®-like lasers) as well as fractional radiofrequency needle-based treatments (INTRAcel, Fractora™ and eMatrix™). These fractional devices are applied to the surface of the skin, usually under topical anaesthesia, and provide specialized, proportional micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate collagen, elastin and ground substances to be reformed, improving the elasticity and appearance of your skin.
CO2 lasers and SpaMedica fractional treatments such as Affirm, Smart Skin and SpaMedica’s eMatrix treatment will provide an evident level of improvement of loose thigh skin, but is usually combined with other treatments to maximize efficacy.
Intense Pulsed Light
In addition to fractional, non-excisional devices, other treatments such as intense pulsed-light or laser-like devices can be used to reduce the appearance of loose thigh skin.
VelaShape & UltraShape
Patients can expect, on average, between two and six centimeters circumferential reduction. In addition, noticeable skin tightening and cellulite smoothening and improvement is generally achieved. By combining radiofrequency devices with high frequency focused ultrasound devices, both skin tightening and permanent fat reduction can be assured.
Laser assisted liposuction can be used to treat loose thigh skin and inner thigh fat. Modern liposuction using energy-assisted devices such as SmartLipo™ usually results in very impressive results that last a lifetime.
Those who undergo BodyTite treatments can expect up to 35% soft tissue contraction and skin tightening, with lifelong results in the reduction of your loose thigh skin. BodyTite™ is one of the energy-assisted devices that Dr. Mulholland deploys on almost every case of liposuction.
