Your Ultimate Guide To Firming Sagging Skin

Discussing treatments and methods to minimize the effects of aging and help both women and men age gracefully does not, by any means, imply that we are attempting to combat the natural aging process or striving to appear 25 in our 50s. It simply means that we are embracing the “signs” of aging and aiming to do so as gracefully as possible.

Firming Ingredients

The first solution one thinks about when it comes to embracing sagging skin is firming products. According to dermatologists, there is nothing better than the combination of retinoids and sunscreen. Pair these two heroes with a good hyaluronic acid moisturizer to draw in water, and you’ve got plumping and lifting.

If your goal is firming, look for face and body creams, lotions, and serums with these ingredients to maintain youthful skin.

Crepey Skin?

Correcting crepiness is one of the biggest concerns for anyone who’s looking to age gracefully. A new innovative solution for wrinkly skin is Ellacor, a micro-coring treatment that tightens by removing microscopic cores of excess skin. Ultherapy is another option that can help lift and tighten mild-to-moderate loose skin using ultrasound energy.

Carbon dioxide laser can treat crepiness by creating a controlled thermal injury, prompting the skin to heal itself. To enhance elasticity and collagen in your face or other parts of the body like the knees, you may consider radio-frequency microneedling which creates microinjuries in the skin, promoting the skin’s natural healing.

Consider A Facelift

In many cases, surgery can be the only effective solution. So if your case is severe, you may want to consider a face or neck lift. And because gravity affects different parts of your face, you may require more than one procedure. 

Volume Restoration

Only tightening sagging skin is not enough in your aging-gracefully journey… You need to tighten and plump at the same time. You can address volume loss via noninvasive procedures or a surgical lift. Think fat transfer, dermal filler, or Sculptra poly-L-lactic acid injections as add-on treatments. These treatments can help fill in areas that need to restore volume.

Consider Combinations

Sometimes treatment combinations can give you optimal results.

For instance, if your target is the lower face, a very effective way to go is a scarless facelift and neck lift, combined with MyEllevate suture suspension and FaceTite skin tightening.

Alternatively, if you’re aiming to tighten the upper face from the temples to the cheeks, then the combination of Sofwave with Sculptra is another great option.

For firming the abdomen area, a tummy tuck or panniculectomy, with options like the front-only or circumferential belt-pack is a good way to go. To address breast drooping, it is recommended to do a breast lift with or without implants.

Targeting arms and legs is not common, but if you need to firm these areas consider thigh lifts and arm lifts.

All these combos can be paired and customized based on your own needs. So establish priorities and consult your doctor before deciding on any of these procedures.
