You actually can change the elasticity of your skin. Just like in our faces the skin over the rest of our body produces collegen and elastin. The cells that produce the two are called Fibroblasts. There are processes by which sluggish Fibroblasts can be, in effect, turned back on. When that happens it has a cinching affect on the skin. One of the ways to do this is with Lymph drainage. You can have manual lymphatic drainage where a massage therapist uses a technique to move the lymph or and better for loose skin, you can have mechanical lymphatic drainage. The mechanical lymphatic drainage uses a series of suction cups that act on the dermal layers both on the top and below, internally. THIS process activates Fibroblasts to create collegen and elastin. People that are loosing weight, exercising and using a process such as this will find that they do not have the same loose skin problem. And an added benefit of Mechanical Lymph Drainage is if you have stretch marks from gaining weight - the process will smooth those marks. A stretch mark after all is a breaking on the collegen fibers. - Signed, Your friendly Aesthetician and Lymph Drainage Practitioner... Reach out to me if you want to know more.
