What Really Works in Tightening Sagging Skin

With thousands of anti-aging treatments and products on the market, it’s no surprise that consumers are confused about what really works for their aging issues.

Loose, sagging skin tops the list of the most common aging issues that concern both men and women. Sagging skin is a result of declining levels of two naturally occurring proteins collagen and elastin. Both are responsible for that firm, plump appearance of naturally youthful skin. As we age, the body produces less of both proteins and your skin starts to sag.

Boosting your collagen and elastin levels

  • Dermal fillers

Sculptra is a collagen-boosting filler that has been widely used for reducing the appearance of under eye hollows, sunken cheeks, and nasolabial folds. Restylane, a popular filler for improving unattractive tear troughs, has been found to induce rapid production of collagen along with restoring volume.

A tiny amount of blood is withdrawn from the patient at the beginning of this procedure. The sample is consequently spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma components from the rest of the blood. The plasma component contains proteins, platelets, and clotting factors that help the body produce more collagen. PRP has been shown to be quite effective in softening crow’s feet and lifting the middle and lower portions of the face. The procedure is also known as the Vampire Facelift.
