    Sagging Face Solution:
    Skin Tightening & Lifting Treatment

    Skin Treatment

    Do you find yourself gently pulling back skin on your face when you look in the mirror and wishing it would stay there? A surgical lift, such as a facelift or neck lift, will give you the most dramatic results, but you’ll find plenty of other skin-tightening options with less downtime and lower cost.

    Below are the various options available in O2 Klinik:

    Subtle tightening

    Skin-firming creams and lotions.

    If you’re looking for facelift-like results from a topical cream, you’ll likely be disappointed. Despite the claims that a cream or lotion can lift sagging skin, the results you see from a skin-firming cream will be subtle at best because a cream or lotion cannot penetrate the skin deeply enough to do this. Thus, it’s also possible that you won’t see any results.

    However, a small change may be noticed if a product contains a retinoid, such as retinol, which can help your body to stimulate more collagen. In conclusion, the lifting and firming effects from topical application is minimal and not lasting. You need to apply it every day to see a good result. It’s suitable for those who are not keen to undergo any kind of procedures.

    Modest Tightening And Lifting

    Non-invasive skin tightening procedures

    These procedures are called non-invasive because they leave your skin intact. You may see some temporary redness and swelling. It will usually recover in a few days.

    Here’s what you can expect from a non-invasive skin-tightening procedure:

    Results : Tend to appear gradually, so they seem natural

    Downtime : Little or none

    Colorblind : Safe for people of all skin colors

    Body-wide use : Can tighten skin just about anywhere on your body

    Side effects : Usually some redness and swelling, but little risk of other side effects when performed by an experienced doctor.

    Treatment duration : Most procedures take 1 hour or less

    Pain : May have some discomfort during the procedure.

    If you opt for a non-invasive skin tightening procedure, you’ll likely have one of the following:

    HIFU Treatment

    Ultrasound / Radiofrequency

    O2 doctors are using ultrasound to send heat deep into the skin. During this treatment, your aesthetic consultant places a device against your skin, which heats the tissue beneath. The heat can cause your body to produce more collagen. With 1 treatment, most people see modest lifting and tightening within 2 to 3 months. It takes time for your body to make collagen, so you’ll see the best results in about 6 months. You may get more benefit from having additional treatments.

    Results can last 2 to 3 years with the right skin care.

    Fillers

    When a filler is injected, it does stretch the skin slightly, filling out sagging skin and tissues that have been weakened over time. For some fillers, a big part of the procedure is working to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin.

    Some fillers lead to an increase in the body’s natural production of collagen, which will have a positive impact long after the filler has faded away. Collagen is a protein that improves the elasticity and hydration of your skin, along with reducing wrinkles and other signs of age. By increasing your collagen levels, these fillers can make your skin better for years after your initial injection.

    Fillers Will Not Stretch Out Your Skin

    No matter what you hear, a majority of the time fillers will have no kind of lasting effect on your skin. You will not require more filler in the future for the same results, and your skin will not sag more because you opted for the fillers.

    Laser Resurfacing

    This is another way for skin tightening, this procedure requires some downtime. You’ll need to stay home for 5 to 7 days. It can also diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots on the skin, such as age spots. The tradeoff is that it requires downtime and has a greater risk of possible side effects, such as scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Some procedures, such as non-invasive laser or radiofrequency treatments, are generally well-tolerated and may cause only minimal discomfort, often described as a warming or tingling sensation.

    Invasive procedures or those involving injections, such as certain types of facelifts or thread lifts, may involve more discomfort. In such cases, local anesthesia or other pain management measures are often used to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

    Q: Can filler get rid of smile lines?
    A: Yes, dermal fillers can be effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines or nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth and can become more pronounced with age.

    Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm or Restylane, are commonly used to add volume to the skin. When injected into the nasolabial folds, these fillers can help plump the skin and smooth out the wrinkles, making the smile lines less noticeable. The procedure is relatively quick.
