How to Treat Sagging Facial Skin

Home/Blog / How to Treat Sagging Facial Skin

A loss of volume and sagging facial tissue are concerns experienced by countless patients as the delicate skin of the face naturally loosens. You may notice the initial formation of wrinkles, changes in your facial contours, and/or jowls along the jawline with the progression of the aging process. While it may seem like sagging facial skin will have a lasting effect on your facial appearance, board-certified plastic surgeon Geoffrey Leber, MD, FACS performs an array of facial rejuvenation techniques at his Boston practice to lift and tighten the skin.

A facelift is considered the most effective and long-lasting method of achieving a younger-looking appearance, as the procedure is designed to target the skin, fat, and underlying musculature of the face simultaneously. In turn, facelift surgery has the ability to smooth wrinkles, get rid of jowls, and tighten the skin of the face and neck for powerful facial enhancement. Many patients even remark that a facelift has allowed them to appear ten years younger! However, if you would rather treat a loss of facial volume while avoiding surgery, JUVÉDERM® and other cosmetic injectables can provide a subtle improvement in reducing signs of facial aging. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection is optimized for a distinct concern, such as filling nasolabial folds, smoothing marionette lines, or restoring fullness under the cheeks. As a result, dermal fillers can be a minimally invasive technique to treat sagging skin, as well as wrinkle reduction and mid-facial volume loss.
