Lossing Firmness

As the number of collagen and elastin fibers in our skin decrease, skin gradually looses its youthful firmness. The contour of the cheeks - once a smooth curve - now becomes scalloped with the development of furrows and folds. There are a number of non-surgical skin firming options which can improve the firmness of the skin or help restore its youthful contour:

Loosing firmness
  1. Furrows under the eyes
  2. Nasolabial folds
  3. Melolabial folds (Marionette lines)
  4. "Jowls"
 

 

  • Thermage - using monopolar radiofrequency to create heat collagen production is stimulated in the deeper part of the skin for a natural skin firming effect. This is a single treatment with no down-time.
  • Intradermal hyaluronic acid injections - Restylane Vital is deposited into the skin in multiple, tiny amounts which act like "water-sponges" and stimulate collagen production by stretch effect, thus leading to skin firming. More "lift" can be achieved if injected strategically in a thread-like fashion.
  • Hyaluronic acid fillers - deposited deeper under to skin these can lift up skin furrows. Cheeks can be naturally lifted back to their previous, higher position.
  • Botox - decreases the pull by the depressor muscles.
  • Ulthera
