Ways to a Younger Face

As gravity takes its toll (plus a loosening of the muscles and tissue, as well as changes in the amount and positioning of fat), the face and certain areas of it can take on a saggy appearance. Collagen and elastin are essential for firm skin but they both break down over the years. As this happens and fat is lost, there is a weakening of the internal support structure that keeps skin where it needs to be.

Get Rid of A Saggy Neck With A Necklift

Many women simply forget to treat the area below the chin, but nothing screams your age like a saggy neck with wrinkles and bands. Neurotoxins can soften the bands, but the only way to get rid of the turkey wattle is with a necklift. During the procedure, the weak muscles of the neck are tightened up and loose skin is excised. Tightening the neck muscles and skin is key when fixing a saggy neck.

Tighten Lax Skin With A facelift

The only permanent way to fully correct skin laxity in the neck and face is with surgical excision. As we age, the soft tissue of the face deflates and descends creating an aged appearance. Because the fibrous attachments between the skin and the deeper structures are looser in some areas more than others, some parts of the face, like the lower cheeks, midface and neck, may experience more drooping—this accounts for the classic signs of aging: jowls, loose skin on the neck and deep smile lines.  A facelift re-elevates and repositions the skin, reclaiming the position it once had. With most facelift surgeries, but not all, volume needs to be restored to the areas where it has been lost from to create a fully rejuvenated look. The face becomes hollow with age and if we just the skin in just tightened and volume isn't replaced, you can actually look older.

Minimize Loose Skin With Skin Tightening Treatments

Near infrared technology is used to penetrate deep heat to the deepest layers of tissue. This stimulates collagen production and tightens lax skin. Nearly any patient seeking fuller, tighter skin can benefit from laser skin tightening as a safe, noninvasive and effective procedure. The laser skin tightening procedure can be fully customized to help each patient receive the best possible results, depending on the skin condition, size and location of the targeted area and the strength of the laser exposure. Treatments should be performed once every two weeks for a total of 6, followed by quarterly maintenance.
