Skin laxity starts to become a concern after the age of 30. From that point forward, you can notice greater skin sagging, deeper wrinkles, and an older facial complexion. If sagging skin has recently become a concern for you, you should consider cosmetic intervention. Our Newport Beach office offers non-invasive and surgical treatments to help you get your youth back. Schedule your consultation to learn more today.
How Does Skin Laxity Occur?
Skin sagging develops gradually as our bodies produce less collagen. The decline in collagen occurs throughout one’s life but becomes much more rapid after young adulthood. Other causes of skin laxity include pregnancy, losing weight (particularly repeatedly), and exposing your skin to sunlight without protection. Similarly, environmental irritants and genetic factors also influence how quickly we age and how rapidly our skin sags.
What Are the Signs?
Sagging often develops first on the face and abdomen. You can notice it under the chin, around the jawline, and the cheeks. The amount of sagging and the specific areas depend on your unique genetic makeup. Facial volume loss and sagging skin often go hand-in-hand. Combination treatments should be considered if you want tighter skin and greater volume.
Treatments for Sagging Skin
Dr. Bailey is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience as an educator and practitioner. He can provide surgical interventions to address sagging skin, including facelift, arm lift (Brachioplasty), and abdominoplasty (for sagging around the abdomen). In addition to these treatments, we also provide Secret RF™ for tightening skin anywhere (and treating stretch marks) and EMFACE® – a completely non-invasive option for tightening facial skin and improving facial contours.
Supplement treatments to increase or decrease volume are sometimes useful. Liposuction and fat grafting during surgery, dermal fillers after the skin is tightened. These simple injections use hyaluronic acid to improve facial volume and plumpness. Results can last as long as 1-2 years, and treatments can be repeated.
