As your skin ages it begins to lose its ability to stretch and results in loose sagging and wrinkled skin. Sagging skin also appears when there has been a significant weight loss and also as a result of gravity over time. As we age we lose volume in our face from the loss of collagen and elastin and we are left with loose, sagging skin. Loose, sagging skin was once only treated by facelifts or surgery as there were no other options for wrinkled, aged skin.
Loose sagging skin treatments today have improved so much that these sagging treatments do not need surgery but can be accomplished with non-surgical methods:
HIFU Ultraformer III
HIFU Ultraformer III is a completely non-invasive, lifting and contouring treatment applicable to the face, neck (as well as body). It delivers high intensity focused ultrasound energy into the target region of the skin, stimulating and formulating collagen regeneration. The precision in delivery of a high density of power, triggers neo-collagenesis naturally within the body.
RF Venus Lift
RF (radiofrequency) Venus Lift treatment is the latest treatment for improving skin tone. This non-ablative treatment means that little or no downtime is required for the patient. Using ultra-safe radiofrequency, RF Venus Lift can reduce wrinkles, and can tighten the skin on the cheeks, jowl lines, and neck area. RF works by stimulation of collagen and improving lymphatic flow of your skin.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Skin Tightening with long pulsed Nd: YAG generally works by stimulating the production of collagen, that magic substance which allows our skin to remain taut and supple. Effects of the sagging skin laser treatments on the collagen layer continue long after the first treatment so you will see a gradual tightening over time.
The absorbable suture of PDO thread lift provide immediate lifting effect, whereas the polydioxanone (PDO) component of the thread stimulate the regeneration of the collagen. Therefore, the face instantly lifted right after the treatment and will be even better in the following months as the collagen grew.
As we grow older, skin loses moisture and elasticity. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Ultra Plus are increasingly being used by men and women who want to subtly add volume in a natural way. Adding volume in the cheeks, temples, under eyes and laugh lines will taut the sagging skin and provide lifting effects. Dermal fillers can be a great stand-alone treatment to restore aging, sagging skin, or they can serve as an adjunct to radiofrequency and other anti-aging treatments.
One of the hallmark signs of aging is the presence of static wrinkles or wrinkles at rest with no facial expressions. All static wrinkles start out as dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles with facial expression such as squinting or smiling. With time these lines become etched into the skin and are visible at rest. These wrinkles often appear on the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, around the mouth and on the neck. Botulinum toxin such as BOTOX and Dysport injections are a great way to prevent the movement of dynamic wrinkles before they become etched into the skin.
While injecting botulinum toxin on these areas, we notice there are subtle brow and forehead lifting effect sufficient to provide a more refreshed look to some people.
At MBC, we often recommend the combination of various treatment options mentioned above to yield the synergistic 3D lifting effect of these treatments.
