As we grow older, skin-related concerns start to arise. Sagging skin and wrinkles are the first signs. Researching for the best treatment can be a bit tedious and confusing so here are some details to narrow down your options.
Also known as Rhytidectomy, Facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin and facial muscles overall. However, facelift procedure will not polish the smile lines around the lips. This treatment is best done by a plastic surgeon for facial fatty tissues, saggy skin in the middle and lower section of the face, hollow areas due to fat loss, and lines below the lower eyelids.
At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, we focus on nonsurgical treatments and our doctor may recommend an alternative noninvasive procedure during your consultation.
Laser treatments are nonsurgical procedures that dramatically tightens the skin and rejuvenates the face. The infrared light on the laser heats the collagen in the skin to stimulate and tighten the skin. The result may last from 2 to 6 years with touch-ups in between and still varies per individual.
Dermal fillers function as a replacement for the body’s natural collagen, to fill the volume loss and reduce lines and folds on the face. It can also be used on facial scars. Fillers lasts from 6 to 12 months depending on the thickness and thinness of the product used and may require top-ups in between to maintain the full effect.
