Sagging skin can be a fact of life as you age or after you’ve lost significant weight. Traditionally, plastic surgery has been the gold standard in removing excess skin, but more non-surgical alternatives are available than ever. Our expert team can put together the right treatment package for you using our best sagging skin treatments in Beverly Hills.
What Causes Sagging skin?
Normally, skin is supported by the tissues underneath it like collagen, elastin, and fat. Over time or with weight loss, these tissues can begin to deteriorate, meaning the skin loses its support. The result is sagging skin that folds, creases, or hangs off the body. This most often happens because the body cannot contract lose skin fast enough to replenish the lost volume.
What are My Options for Sagging Skin?
Based on your goals, there are a number of effective options for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Read more about our options at our Beverly Hills office:
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical option that uses ultrasound technology to contract collagen and tighten the skin over time. It can be used on many different areas of the body including the face (as a non-surgical facelift) and body after substantial weight loss. It’s comfortable, requires no downtime, and can produce results for a year or so.
RF microneedling stimulates new collagen production by inducing your skin’s wound-healing mechanisms. Additionally, the specialized handpiece emits radiofrequency energy to tighten skin over time. Most patients benefit from a package of treatments for best results.
Fillers are a great way to replenish volume under skin that has small degrees of sagging. This usually includes areas around the mouth and cheeks. Options like Restylane® and Juvéderm® can produce results for around one year.
One of the best ways to maintain your results is through an optimized at-home regimen. During a consultation, our skincare experts can recommend the right professional-grade products to keep your skin youthful and supple.
