I Have Saggy Skin—Which Treatment is Best for Me?
When we talk about wrinkles, it could mean crows feet, glabellar lines, laugh lines, neck folds, or the one you specifically have in mind right now. A range of non-invasive treatments is available to choose from depending on your preference and the area you would like to address. Here we are going to walk you through the common non-invasive solutions for saggy skin:
Botox is for: Forehead lines, crow’s feet, and glabellar lines (the ‘eleven’ line between the eyebrows).
Sure, you’ve heard of Botox. Botox injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure in the USA, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Botox Cosmetic is an injectable that makes use of the medicine Botulinum toxin type A to paralyze muscle temporarily. This results in improved appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and between the eyebrows.
Botox is minimally invasive and is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for wrinkle reduction. There can be moderate discomfort during the procedure, although general anesthesia is not necessary. Topical treatment or ice can numb the area to lessen the discomfort during the process,
This treatment lasts for a few minutes. Improvements visually appear in two to 10 days after the procedure, and the results may last up to four months.
Dysport is for: The glabella, the area in-between your eyebrows, which makes an eleven line; for patients under 65.
Dysport is a convenient and non-invasive procedure for wrinkle treatment, primarily to soften the glabellar lines. Just like Botox, Dysport procedure utilizes the medicine Botulinum toxin type A injection to block muscle contractions and relax it, resulting in a smoother skin surface.
Dysport treatment does not require recovery time so that you can go back to your regular activities after the procedure. According to 98% of patients, their results look natural. You can easily see results in two to three days, which could last up to five months.
Ultherapy is for: Sagging skin on the neck, chin, and brows and improving lines and wrinkles on the upper chest or décolletage.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, chin, and brows, and improving lines and wrinkles on the upper chest or décolletage, without downtime.
It works by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps the skin youthful, firm, and toned. The collagen in our body wears down as we age. That decreases the skin’s elasticity resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and at times, sagging and loose skin.
Ultherapy utilizes micro-focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin that jump-starts the body’s ability to create collagen so you can visibly see the results gradually and naturally.
Microneedling is for: Acne scars, sun spots, larger pores, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and stretch marks.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses pen-like equipment with special microneedles that prick the skin. This process of slightly injuring the skin, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, encourages collagen production in the skin tissue, making it more even and toned.
Sculptra is for: Smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.
Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler containing poly-L-lactic (PPLA) that works to help stimulate natural production of collagen over time. It is used to restore volume on the face and treat deep lines, folds, and creases for a more youthful appearance that could last for two years.
Most patients can go back to their normal activities right after Sculptra injections. The results can be gradual and can take a few months. The average treatment process consists of three injections over four months; however, you can talk to your doctor to determine the number of treatments for optimum results.
Restylane is for: Cheeks, lips, around the mouth, and nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines; for people 21 years and up.
Are you looking to soften wrinkles while enhancing your facial features?
Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers used to plump cheeks and lips, smooth wrinkles, and add lift and volume to the cheek. It is minimally invasive and is done with local anesthesia to lessen discomfort.
The procedure lasts within an hour, and the recovery time is minimal, so you can go back to work or resume your normal activities. Although non-permanent, Restylane products enhance facial features and provide a long-lasting result.
Kybella is for: Double Chin; adults 18 years or older.
A double chin may be caused by weight gain, sagging layer on the neck, or even genetics.
Kybella is a non-invasive injection treatment for reducing excess fat under the chin using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Once injected, synthetic deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells in the double chin area every time you get a Kybella treatment. Multiple treatments might be necessary for some people, but the result is long-lasting.
These days, you do not have to go through the knife to achieve a youthful and rejuvenated glow. The cosmetic solutions mentioned above feature different target areas and procedures, mostly injectables. These are non-invasive, with minimal to no downtime recovery.
