One of the most common concerns we hear from our patients is sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness, leading to sagging and drooping in various areas of the face and body. In this write-up, we’ll discuss the different types of sagging skin conditions and the treatments we offer to address them.
Facial sagging is a common sign of aging and can occur due to a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, which causes it to lose its firmness and elasticity. This can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline.
Options for Sagging Skin (Face)
Also known as Thermage, this is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that tightens and rejuvenates facial skin using radiofrequency energy. It’s FDA-approved and improves the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. The handheld device delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening. The procedure takes 1-2 hours with minimal discomfort or redness.
Acne Scars Treatment
We offer a range of effective acne treatments, including:
Chemical peels can help exfoliate the skin and reduce the appearance of acne scars by encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
Laser resurfacing uses a laser to remove damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of acne scars.
