As we age, the amount of collagen the body produces continues to decline at a steady rate. Collagen and elastin are what help to keep the skin looking plump and youthful, and when the body no longer produces enough skin cells to support the skin’s tissue structure, the result is sagging skin and wrinkles. Fortunately, there are some anti-aging treatment options available that can help to tighten up and tone sagging skin, and even help to eliminate wrinkles. Here are some of the most effective – and fastest ways – to say goodbye to sagging skin and start enjoying a more youthful appearance:
Titan Skin Tightening Treatments for Sagging Skin
The Titan laser continues to be one of the most effective treatments for correcting loose and sagging skin, and can be particularly effective for people who are noticing the signs of premature aging. The Titan laser works by emitting high-intensity heat energy deep into the dermis to cause a contraction. This process triggers collagen production and helps the skin appear smoother and more toned.
Correct Sagging Skin with Thermage
Thermage is another option for tightening and toning the skin, and works by creating damaging the deeper layers of the skin to trigger the collagen production process. In most cases, just a single Thermage treatment is needed to start seeing results. Thermage can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, tighten loose skin around the jaw line, and also to correct light and deeper wrinkles around the forehead.
Dermal Fillers for Sagging Skin
Some dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons prefer to plump up the skin with a set of injectables. While these offer temporary results, you can enjoy the look of youth with minimal pain, and at an affordable price. Some of the most popular dermal fillers on the market include Restylane, Juvederm, Hydrelle, and Botox. In some cases, these fillers can be coupled with a skin tightening treatment to enhance results.
Treat Sagging Skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Laser skin resurfacing procedures can help to stimulate collagen production, correct fine lines and wrinkles and treat skin pigmentation all in one session. These advanced laser procedures are designed to treat all skin types but do require a significant amount of downtime. The latest technologies in laser skin resurfacing include Fraxel, and the Erbium laser. Downtime can range from seven to ten days depending on the type of laser used and the skin type, but most people start to see results within a month after treatment.
In addition to undergoing a cosmetic procedure to tighten and tone up the skin, a series of chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments can help to restore a more youthful appearance and keep the skin looking healthy. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion also speed up collagen production and can help the skin become stronger and more resilient against the effects of aging.
