As we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin. These essential proteins give our skin smoothness and firmness, and as they decrease, we experience more skin laxity. While aging is inevitable, there are more effective treatments than ever to help you look your best at every stage of life.
At Rendon Center for Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine, the skilled providers are experienced with the most cutting-edge nonsurgical solutions for sagging skin. If you want to tighten your skin without the long recovery period associated with surgery, read on to learn about the best minimally invasive treatments for loose skin.
1. Boost Collagen and Elastin With Microneedling
If you’re noticing mild skin laxity for the first time, microneedling in Boca Raton is the perfect treatment to get it under control. Microneedling uses a pen-like device to create micro-wounds on the treatment area. This triggers a healing response that boosts collagen production, leaving you with smoother, firmer skin. As a plus, this treatment can also improve the appearance of acne and acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores.
2. Restore Lost Volume With Dermal Fillers
In addition to experiencing more skin laxity as we age, losing facial volume is also normal. Dermal fillers can address both issues. If you have sagging around your jawline, filler could help reduce the appearance of jowls. Filling in hollows under the cheeks or eyes can also make your skin in these areas appear smoother and firmer.
Sculptra® is an excellent choice for skin laxity. This poly-L-lactic acid filler promotes more collagen production than hyaluronic acid fillers. You can typically expect increased volume and skin firmness in six weeks, and patients often enjoy the age-defying benefits for two or more years.
3. Rejuvenate Your Appearance With a “Lunchtime Lift”
If you have more moderate skin laxity but aren’t interested in a surgical procedure, a nonsurgical facelift like Silhouette InstaLift® could be the perfect minimally invasive way to rejuvenate your appearance. Thread lifts are often called “lunchtime lifts” since patients can usually resume normal activities in a day or two. The treatment uses PLGA threads to subtly pull up sagging skin on the lower face. These threads also stimulate collagen production as they dissolve.
