5 Ways to Treat Sagging Skin

As we age, we may find ourselves experiencing sagging skin. This can also occur after extensive weight loss. No matter the reason, sagging skin often leads us to feel less than satisfied about our physical appearance. This can be especially hard when our face begins to show signs of sagging skin. There are several different types of sagging skin treatment; read below for five ways to treat sagging skin.

Home Remedies

There are several home remedies that can temporarily provide relief from sagging skin. For instance, the astringent properties of lemon juice can often provide skin tightening properties. Applying egg whites and aloe vera has also been shown to improve your skin’s elasticity. Other home remedies include honey, cucumbers, and oil massages.

There are several treatments and procedures provided by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons that can provide more permanent and longer lasting results. At St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center, we offer several different procedures that can help reduce the signs of sagging skin.

Forma

Forma is a non-invasive procedure that can treat wrinkles and sagging skin. This procedure uses radiofrequency technology in combination with heat to penetrate the skin and encourage collagen production. The new collagen will help add elasticity and tighten the skin. This procedure can be done on just about any body area, including the face, abdomen, and legs.

Kybella

Kybella is an effective treatment for those suffering from sagging skin in the chin— specifically double chins. This treatment is a simple injection of a form of deoxycholic acid. This substance has been show to help fat absorption that will then reduce that sagging chin. With this treatment, your chin area can experience a more contoured look due to the fat reduction, along with the skin tightening results.

Facial Treatments

There are several treatments for treating wrinkles and sagging skin in the facial area. These include dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and PRP therapy. These facial treatments each have individual benefits and can often be used in combination with each other for overall facial rejuvenation results.

Liposuction

Some types of liposuction, including laser assisted liposuction, provide skin tightening results by encouraging collagen production. When considering treatment for skin sagging, it is important that you choose a procedure that is best for your individual case. At St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center, we encourage you to schedule a consultation. We will discuss your individual case, provide options, and help you select the best procedure for you!
