Sagging loose skin is a concern of many patients who are unhappy with their skin.
At Montana Medical Aesthetics Clinic we have several options for skin rejuvenation. Sciton Skintyte, Forever Young BBL-IPL, Laser Resurfacing, Profractional Laser as well as Micro needling with Rejuvapen any of these treatments alone or in combination may give you the tightening and improved elasticity you are looking for.
What You Can Do at Home
No easy fixes here. “Tightening sagging skin requires more intervention than any other problem,” says Ranella Hirsch, M.D., spokesperson for the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. A good moisturizer will plump skin temporarily, Dr. Hirsch says. But if the cream is too heavy, it will clog those oversize pores. The best at-home solution: what the beauty industry calls an “active” treatment, such as an over-the-counter vitamin A (known as retinol) cream, vitamin C serum, and alpha or beta hydroxy acids (AHAs or BHAs). These usually go on at night and help skin renew itself faster and look firmer.
What a Doctor Can Do
Not interested in a face-lift? That’s fine — there are noninvasive procedures worth investigating. Both infrared and laser treatments help stimulate the development of new collagen and “get heat deeply into the skin to help tighten fibrous bands,” explains Dr. Weiss, who is also vice president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
