Non-Surgical Options for Saggy Skin
Let’s face it: none of us are happy when we first begin to notice sagging skin! Usually, the first signs of sagging show up on our upper face, around the eyes. Then, we begin to notice lines around our mouth and some sagging around the jaw.
Get Help for Sagging Eyes with Botox®…
Botox® is commonly used in the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes to provide a small lift to the upper face. Repeated muscle contractions cause wrinkles in these areas, and Botox® works by blocking the neurotransmitters that signal your muscles to contract. Without moving the muscles, you diminish the wrinkles already there and prevent new ones from forming.
Botox® also provides a slight lift in the eyes, giving you a more awake, refreshed appearance. You’ll enjoy softened wrinkles in the forehead, mouth and crow’s feet. Botox® is painless, takes only a few minutes to inject and works for about three to four months.
…Give Your Mouth a Lift with Juvèderm™…
Lines around the nose (naso-labial folds) and mouth (marionette lines) are pesky signs of aging that don’t diminish no matter how wonderful our skincare regimen. Juvèderm™ is an incredible dermal filler that is injected into the lines to plump them up, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Juvèderm™ is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in nature and the human body. It is crucial for maintaining volume and pliability in the skin. Since hyaluronic acid absorbs more than 1,000 times its weight in water, Juvèderm™ hydrates the skin and increases its volume.
…And Diminish Jowls with Thermage®!
While it is not a replacement for a facelift, Thermage® is excellent for improving slight sagging of the face, neck and eyes, common signs of premature aging. Thermage® uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This gradually creates new collagen that tones and tightens your skin for a more youthful appearance.
