Three Treatments to Combat Sagging Skin

Volume loss of your skin can be attributed to different factors. However, the major ones are aging and sun damage. As we age, we naturally lose collagen and elastin in our skin, leading to a less supple look. This process is normal part of life, but it doesn’t always look good. Those who spend a lot of time under the sun will have an even more accelerated rate of volume loss. There are ways to help slow the rate of sagging, like wearing SPF every day but sometimes it’s not enough. That’s when certain treatments help. Here are three of them:

  • 4D Facelifts – This non-invasive treatment uses lasers to treat sagging skin on different parts of your face.Multiple types of lasers are used for different effects – from stimulating collagen production, to firming up the texture of your skin, and using concentrated heat to tighten up your cells. Part of the process is even a light peel to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Little to no anesthesia or downtime is needed, and it brings fantastic results.
  • Injectable Fillers – HA fillers like Juvederm and Restylane help with the restoration of collagen that has been lost through the years. The main use of hyaluronic acid is twofold: add volume back to your face, and to lift the areas on your face that has sagged from the natural course of aging. You can get fillers injected on your brows, cheeks, nasal and lip areas. If done correctly by a trained specialist, filler injections will look completely natural and seamless.
  • RF Microneedling – This brand new, revolutionary treatment uses radiofrequencies to improve the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines, erase wrinkles and scars. An RF device is used to deliver heat to the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production, making your skin more plump and supple. This type of treatment is relatively quick, with most sessions averaging around 20 minutes. Most patients will need only 3 to 4 sessions spaced out within a month and a half in order to see the full range of results. There is no anesthesia or downtime associated with this treatment, which makes it an awesome lunchtime appointment.
