What if we told you it was possible to lift sagging or loose facial skin without surgery? Good news, it is! Here at DermacareHR, we offer a number of treatments to combat skin laxity including our most popular service, Exilis Ultra. Today, we’re going to go over two of the best methods to address loose and sagging facial skin. Each of the skin-tightening treatments detailed below are non-invasive and have no downtime. That means you can return to your everyday activities immediately.
Let’s dive in!
Our primary go-to for skin laxity is Exilis Ultra. This treatment tightens skin through the use of radiofrequency and ultrasound waves. These waves heat up the skin and promote collagen and elastin production (the proteins that are the “fill” and “tightness” of your skin). Similar to BBL SkinTyte, Exilis Ultra can also be customized to your needs. This technology is very nimble and can be focused directly on tightening the skin on your face, including the neck, chin/chin straps/jawline, under and around the eyes, and the forehead.
The Exilis Ultra treatment is non-invasive, has zero downtime, and the sensation is comparable to a pain-free hot stone massage. It’s important to drink lots of water in the days leading up to treatment because radiofrequency travels best through hydrated skin.
An additional option for addressing skin laxity is BBL SkinTyte. This treatment uses BroadBand Light technology to tighten the skin and promote both collagen and elastin. BBL SkinTyte is also customized to your needs and is typically offered in packages of 5. Your Dermacare Expert will determine how many sessions are needed based on what your skin looks like currently and what your goals are! Session times for the face are usually around 30 minutes—and get ready—require zero downtime! That’s right, you can walk out the door and on with your life after getting a BBL SkinTyte service!
It’s important to note that before a BBL SkinTyte treatment you can’t have a sunburn or any significant sun exposure. If this happens prior to your appointment, please give us a call as soon as possible to reschedule.
Medical-grade products are another great way to help address skin laxity and signs of aging. (They can also help to enhance the results from your professional treatments!) Your Dermacare Expert can help you decide which products may be best for you based on your skin type, concerns, and desired results. We have a lot, so we recommend coming in to see us or making a virtual appointment where we can go over your concerns, budget, and lifestyle, and then recommend the best products for you!
