What is sagging skin, exactly? What causes skin to sag? And how can you treat sagging skin and improve its appearance at home?
Sagging skin is usually the result of the deterioration or breakdown of skin-tightening collagen and elastin in the dermis. Ageing, drastic weight-loss, UV exposure, pregnancy, and certain medical conditions can all cause sagging skin on face and body. Whilst your heredity and genes will impact how likely you are to develop sagging skin, ageing is by far the most common cause of sagging.
Sagging skin can occur on almost any part of the body, but the areas most commonly affected include the stomach, arms, knees, eyelids, jawline and chin.
Whilst upgrading your lifestyle to include a healthy diet, ample sleep, the avoidance of environmental toxins including alcohol and cigarettes can help to prevent skin from sagging as you age, some collageneses - the enzymatic breakdown of the collagen in your skin cells - is almost inevitable.
Treating sagging skin at home can be a challenge, and many over-the-counter creams that claim to improve the appearance of ageing skin simply fail to deliver results. That’s where the LYMA Laser comes in. The LYMA Laser has been shown to noticeably improve skin texture, boost skin elasticity and reduce skin sagging when used for just 15 minutes daily.
The LYMA Laser is the best home treatment for sagging skin on the market. And, what’s more, the Laser is totally pain-free and yields results of a standard never seen before.
What makes the LYMA Laser stand out from the competition?
Unlike any other at-home laser or skin treatment available today, the LYMA Laser works directly on the cells beneath the upper layers of skin to alter the skin’s matrix. The laser’s bio-stimulation restores skin cell function such that it effectively reverses the skin ageing process.
Mitochondria are membrane-bound cell organelles that generate the chemical energy needed to power cells’ biochemical reactions. This includes those collagen- and elastin-producing cells that manufacture the proteins responsible for keeping your skin taught and firm.
As we age, mitochondria become less efficient, and cellular functions are impaired. Collagen and elastin production diminish, and skin starts to thin, wrinkle and lose its elasticity. This is especially true during the menopause as the sudden drop in estrogen slows collagen production further. The deterioration of collagen and elastin as you age can be exacerbated by too much sun exposure, or a toxic lifestyle.
The LYMA Laser is special because it is able to effectively ‘unlock’ the skin’s mitochondria to provide the cells with more energy, thereby restoring the cells’ ability to produce collagen and elastin, and renewing the skin in the process.
The LYMA Laser is also extremely powerful, particularly when compared with other at-home laser systems on the market. The LYMA Laser contains a state-of-the-art and totally unique filtered infra-red light beam with the power to infiltrate even the deepest layers of your skin.
Most home cosmetic devices are too weak to deliver meaningful benefits to the cells at the base layers of the skin. Whilst the power generated by generic beauty lasers will typically register somewhere around the 15 milliwatt mark, the LYMA Laser registers closer to 560 milliwatts, penetrating deep into the skin and through the epidermis and dermis to reach the collagen- and elastin-producing cells.
Nichola Joss, who was voted the world’s leading facialist in 2019, helped to develop the unique three-step protocol that really sets the LYMA Laser apart from everything else on the market.
Joss uses the LYMA Laser on her A-list clients (the roster of whom includes Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank, Gisele Bundchen and Gwyneth Paltrow). She explains that “the LYMA Laser takes skin regeneration to a new level”.
The LYMA Laser is the perfect option if you’re concerned about ageing or sagging skin, but are reluctant to turn to invasive cosmetic procedures to get things tightened up again. The LYMA Laser has even been endorsed by the very people specialising in these surgical treatments:
Dr Graeme E. Glass a plastic, craniofacial and cosmetic surgeon, as well as an associated professor of clinical surgery has called the LYMA Laser “one of the most exciting and innovative products to have been developed for the purpose of skin rejuvenation”. Dr Glass went on to say that “The LYMA Laser captures the efficacy of a laser-based light therapy previously only available in the clinic setting and safely delivers it into the hands of the consumer for use at home.”
With the LYMA Laser, there is no longer any need for people whose lives are busy enough already to make space in their calendar for time consuming, costly, and often ineffective cosmetic appointments. The LYMA System enables you to obtain clinic-grade results in the comfort of your own home.
In addition to treating sagging skin, the LYMA Laser has also been shown to be effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and mitigating against acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring and cellulite.
The LYMA Laser is safe, hassle-free, pain-free, and offers a much-awaited paradigm shift in the growing field of at-home skincare. The LYMA Laser has the potential to completely recalibrate our expectations of what can be achieved at home - it has the power to change everything you thought you knew about beauty.
