How to stop your face from sagging

As you age your face goes through many changes. One of the biggest and most apparent changes that people go through is facial changes. As you age the fat in your face loses its volume and begins to shift downward. Your skin may begin to sink and what was once tight is now loose and saggy. So the question becomes how to stop your skin from sagging? Here are a few non surgical, little to no downtime treatments that are perfect for addressing the issue of how to stop your skin from sagging.

PDO Threading

PDO Threading is great treatment that can do wonders on your skin in terms of sagging. A PDO Thread is a synthetic absorbable surgical structure composed of polydioxanone. The structures that are placed into the face to tighten and lift the skin dissolve after about four to six months. The best results are at around one to two months. This is a great alternative to going under the knife with plastic surgery to make your face look younger. The right candidate for this type of treatment is someone between the ages of thirty-five and sixty-five. If you are older than that this may not be the best treatment for you. If you are someone that is looking for the type of results that a needed face lift would give you then this is also not the right treatment for you. However, if you are the right age and just need a bit of a lift and tightening for a more youthful and refreshed look to your skin then this is the perfect treatment for you!

Areas of treatment on the face:

  • Brows
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Lips
  • nasolabial folds

Skin Tightening Tempsure

Skin tightening tempsure is another treatment that treats skin laxity and sagginess. It is a treatment that uses radio frequency to generate heat in the deep layers of the skin to help stimulate and produce collagen. It helps to smooth out wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. For best results three to five treatments are needed. The treatments can be spaced three to four weeks apart from each other.  

Treatment areas:

  • Forehead
  • Around the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline

Botox

Botox is a drug that weakens the muscles. The Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles and because of this the muscle that has been injected with Botox is unable to contract. This leads to wrinkles and lines that are relaxed and softened. It is essentially temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that are the cause of wrinkles. The treatment lasts on average of between two and four months. Overtime if you get Botox consistently you can spread your treatments out further because you won’t need to get injections as frequently.

Treatment Areas on the face:

  • Upper and lower lips
  • Brow lift
  • Under eye
  • Masseter
  • Chin
  • DAO (corners of the mouth)
  • Bunny lines
  • Gummy lines
