Skin sagging is the result of volume loss or reduction of collagen in the skin. Collagen loss is a natural process and starts as early as about age 30.
However, you usually do not begin to see the effects of this until later, for example on the skin of the arms or legs, face, abdomen, buttocks,...
Skin sagging can be treated using a variety of devices. During a consultation, a customized treatment plan is created.

What Skincenters offers
For skin tightening, we at Skincenters have two devices that we can use to re-tighten the skin.
The technique is the updated version of LPG treatments. This is because with the help of radio frequency
Depending on the exact indication, one or both treatments are used.
Z-Wave: Shockwave treatment
Applying radial shockwave has a positive effect on collagen structure, skin and connective tissue. It improves blood circulation and fat cell metabolism. It stimulates the formation of collagen fibers making the skin more elastic. After only a few treatments, a skin tightening is visible as a result.
Remodel: RF + Vacuum + low level laser
Using radio frequency, combined with connective tissue massage by vacuum, we address sagging skin. Where radiofrequency is going to provide collagen stimulation within the skin, the vacuum system is going to loosen adhesions.
So sometimes the choice is also made to use both treatments. In fact, studies have shown that the intensive, non-painful shockwave treatment not only improves and accelerates fat reduction, but also stimulates lymphatic drainage and tightens the skin.
Preparation and aftercare
No specific preparation is required for both shockwave and radiofrequency treatment.
However, we do ask that you do not apply any body lotion to the area to be treated before coming to the appointment.
The skin may be sensitive in the 2-3 days after treatment. Small bruises may also occur.
We recommend drinking plenty of water for 24h after treatment.
