Sagging skin is primarily caused by two age-related factors: loss of collagen and elastin, and loss of facial fat. Collagen is a protein that is critical to the structure of the skin, and elastin is a protein that helps the skin return to its natural position after being stretched. Elastin levels begin to decrease around the age of 18, and collagen levels begin to decline around the age of 25. Loss of facial fat typically becomes apparent by the mid-30s. Reduced levels of collagen and elastin contribute to the development of lines, wrinkles, and sagging, while the loss of fat decreases the volume of the face, altering its shape and exacerbating the appearance of loose or sagging skin.
The most effective solutions for sagging skin are multi-stage treatments in which collagen and elastin are stimulated, skin is tightened, and volume is restored. Our expert team treats sagging skin with great outcomes using effective combinations of energy-based devices, injectable products, and minimally-invasive techniques.
The gold standard in lifting and tightening, Ultherapy is the ultimate non-surgical solution for sagging skin. High powered, focused ultrasound energy is strategically directed into collagen-rich layers of the skin, contracting tissue and triggering collagen production that results in a long-lasting lift.
One of the fastest growing aesthetic treatments by popularity, RF Microneedling is an effective treatment for tightening skin while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Safe radio-frequency energy is delivered below the surface of the skin using gold-plated needles, stimulating the production of collagen while refining skin texture.
A quick treatment that yields immediate results, cosmetic fillers are used to restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid-based filler is injected in strategic locations to replace lost fat and gently pull back the skin. Fillers are commonly used to enhance the cheekbones and jawline, improve the appearance of jowls, and minimize under-eye hollows.
