How can I treat sagging in my face?
Many patients ask about facial sagging and wrinkles. Sagging skin in the face usually causes jowls. Women typically dislike jowls and worry about the for a face lift.
Depending on the severity of your sagging skin or jowls, a nice combination of Thermage Skin Tightening and fillers to LIFT the cheek may be very helpful.
Cheek lift with fillers has become very popular, as we have identified the the falling cheek area as a major cause of sagging skin.
Cheek lift involves the injection of fillers like Voluma, Juvederm XC, Radiesse and Sculptra. This filler treatment usuallyl takes about an hour. Using this fill technique, we can avoid surgery. When a surgical face lift is not appropriate or desired, try a cheek lift with Voluma XC.
Thermage is a radio frequency that heats skin deep in the dermis. This heating causes an increased production of COLLAGEN. Over about 4-6 months, patients notice a firmer, smoother look to the face. Thermage can decrease the appearance of jowls.
By having your Thermage Skin Tightening treatment first, followed by a filler or cheek lift treatment, this is the best non-surgical way to treat your sagging skin.
