Sagging Facial Skin? Ways to Tighten Your Skin
There are many things we can do to delay and slow facial aging as much as possible. Maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle without smoking or excessive drinking, exercising regularly, caring for our skin, and so on can help us keep our skin’s vitality for longer. Eventually, though, age and gravity will take their toll and we’ll start to notice sagging skin, especially along our jawline.
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to reduce sagging skin without having surgery. Our team at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center specializes in non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the face and body, and we gladly offer several non-invasive or minimally invasive options.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Skin tightening with Viora Reaction™ is a versatile procedure that can be used anywhere on your body, including on your face, to firm and tighten your skin in an entirely non-invasive way. That means no injections or incisions of any kind.
During this treatment, our skilled specialist uses an applicator to send targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy into the areas you want to treat. This RF energy triggers your body’s natural response to create more collagen, the protein that firms, lifts, and tightens your skin. Because this treatment works with your body’s own processes, your results will gradually develop over the course of several sessions.
We are currently adding even more non-surgical skin tightening options using radiofrequency technology, including Venus Legacy™ skin tightening and cellulite reduction as well as radiofrequency-enhanced microneedling coming soon.
Fractionated CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing is among the most versatile and effective procedures for reducing signs of aging, and that includes restoring firmness to sagging skin. During this treatment, our laser technicians use a specialized laser that creates a series of micro-injuries in your skin. This triggers your body’s healing response. As part of this healing response, your body creates more skin-firming collagen in addition to shedding damaged surface skin and creating an overall smoother, more youthful complexion.
Keep in mind that as effective as this treatment is, it comes with precautions you need to take to minimize potential side effects. This includes protecting your skin from the sun for weeks before and after your session along with caring for your skin in a certain way after your procedure. Because of the need for sun protection, fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing is most often performed in the fall or winter for your convenience.
Microneedling with Natural Growth Factors
Did you know your body holds one of the keys to younger, firmer skin – you just need to harness that power in the right way? Within your blood are natural growth factors that can trigger collagen production, and we put them to use as a way to enhance your microneedling treatments.
We begin by taking a small amount of your blood and processing it in a centrifuge to separate out the natural growth factors. We then perform a Réjuvapen® microneedling treatment while applying these natural growth factors, allowing the growth factors to reach the deeper layers of your skin to enhance your collagen production. The combination of the microneedling procedure and your own natural growth factors creates a skin-firming, lifting, rejuvenating effect.
