3 Ways to Firmer Skin

As a San Diego facelift surgeon, I often have patients ask me how they can get firmer-looking skin. Luckily, the “secret of youth” is not much of a secret anymore. Many treatments are available to correct facial sagging for people of any age.

Here are my suggestions:

  • Facelift Surgery: This is usually the best option for individuals who have a high degree of sagging in the lower face and neck. A facelift also can be combined with eyelid surgery or a brow lift for those who want to address signs of aging around the eyes and forehead.
  • Fraxel®: For mild to moderate sagging, the Fraxel laser is ideal. This non-surgical approach stimulates new collagen formation. A series of 30-minute treatments can give you firmer, more-youthful-looking skin.
  • Liquid Facelift: The combination of dermal filler injections and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments is often referred to as a “liquid facelift.” This creates a gentle smoothing effect on facial wrinkles and is best for men and women who have only mild skin sagging. A liquid facelift will give you instant results with little downtime, but the effects are temporary. Individuals who want longer-lasting benefits may want to consider facelift surgery.
