Due to the aging process, skin naturally sags, most visibly in the facial area, due to the loss of collagen and elasticity of the skin.
Typical areas of sagging include the jowls, the naso-labial areas ( laugh lines ) as well as under the eye.
Jowls are best treated with skin tightening procedures like Thermage CPT as well as Ulthera.
The naso-labial areas with deep lines can be treated with dermal filler injections.
Sagging skin underneath the eyes can lead to a tired appearance. Sagging skin in severe cases can cause “eye bags” and this is best treated with surgery.
In early stages of sagging below the eyes, tightening treatments with Thermage CPT as well as Ulthera can be a useful method of prevention.
