Sagging skin is common as people age, especially on the face. Facial skin is delicate, so it’s often the first to break down and begin to droop. As the years go by, certain compounds that are crucial for supporting our skin’s structures start to diminish, resulting in wrinkles, jowls, sagging brows and cheeks, and an overall aged look. Fortunately, we offer a series of treatments for sagging skin at our Tucson practice. Our medical providers can recommend an option tailored to your needs.
Your Treatment Options:
Thermage® skin tightening treatments at our Tucson office use radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin. Your existing collagen is tightened and invigorated, and new collagen is stimulated to grow over time, making for firmer skin on the face and neck.
InstaLift™ is a nonsurgical facelift alternative that lifts and tightens the midface and jawline with dissolvable sutures placed beneath the skin. The sutures are made of a material that stimulates collagen production for increased firming over time.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is an injectable filler that volumizes sunken or flattened cheeks, restoring a look of youthful plumpness and lifting sagging cheek skin.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is another dermal filler that’s ideal for providing a lifted look to the cheeks and jawline and for filling in deep wrinkles. This long-lasting filler stimulates the growth of your own collagen.
ResurFX™ laser resurfacing treats a variety of concerns using a non-ablative laser that prevents damage to the surface of the skin. The gentle treatment stimulates collagen growth in the deeper tissues that effectively lifts the skin.
MaxFX™ CO2 laser resurfacing can tighten and rejuvenate the skin of the neck and face by vaporizing damaged surface skin and encouraging the growth of fresh, firm tissue.
Fotona uses special laser energy to target the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating it to contract and produce more of its own collagen for an attractive, well-defined jaw or neck.
Laser Genesis treatments are cleared by the FDA to even out the skin’s texture by erasing wrinkles and stimulating collagen growth.
Obagi Blue® chemical peels are deep, intensive peels used for dramatic skin rejuvenation. The active ingredient, TCA (trichloroacetic acid), stimulates skin repair and regrowth.
