Tighten Sagging Facial Skin
There are many options available in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for skin tightening treatments to help reduce the appearance of sagging skin. (Skin Tightening)
There are many options available if you want to treat your sagging facial skin, including surgical face-lifts, noninvasive skin tightening, facial exercises, topical creams and even devices that promise to give you back the face of your youth. But, what actually works? We break down what works and what doesn’t for sagging facial skin in this blog.
Do Topical Creams and Lotions Tighten the Skin?
There are many topical creams and lotions available that claim to firm and tighten the skin, but to see real results, you must use these products for extended periods. The majority of these products also only work for very mild cases of sagging skin, so if your situation is more serious, you may be out of luck and out of money spent on products not suited for you.
Do Facial Exercises Tighten the Skin?
A study from Northwestern University revealed that performing specific facial exercises increases the size of the facial muscles, which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Unfortunately, to see results, individuals must perform the exercises several times a day for several weeks. Another negative about this type of treatment is that making the same facial expressions repeatedly can lead to the development of wrinkles.
Surgical Face-Lifts for Skin Tightening
The surgical face-lift is an excellent option for individuals who want to see long-term skin-tightening results or have severe sagging skin. But there are some drawbacks to consider when thinking about having this procedure. The surgical face-lift is invasive, requires general anesthesia, may mean staying in the hospital and has the risk of infection or other complications of surgery.
