Whether it’s a crepey neck or crow’s feet, we all have our “trouble spots” we’d like to improve. Lines, wrinkles and lax skin are natural parts of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept and live with them! Today we can age on our own terms with proven skin tightening and age-defying solutions.
Here’s a look at a few tried-and-true skin tightening treatments at Hendrick Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, plus treatment tips for enjoying your best results:
SkinPen® is the first FDA-approved microneedling device on the market, which means it’s backed by years of research to help smooth textural concerns like acne scars and provide tightening benefits without surgery. To achieve optimal skin tightening benefits, we perform a series of microneedling treatments, tailored to your unique skin concerns. The key to microneedling is achieving buildable benefits over time. With every treatment you do, you are stimulating new collagen and elastin growth and literally triggering new, stronger skin to replace your old skin. Buildable benefits take time, which means patience is key with microneedling! But it’s worth it!
FDA-approved Botox is more versatile than you may think! This acclaimed neuromodulator helps smooth skin on the face by relaxing the muscles that cause your wrinkles to form. With Botox, you can smooth crow’s feet, horizontal forehead furrows and vertical lines between your brows (11’s). You can also administer Botox to the area above the lips to fix a gummy smile or chin to reduce chin wrinkles/dimpling. We will tailor your Botox session to your exact needs and goals after carefully studying your facial contours and movement.
Strategic dermal filler placement is a wonderful way to achieve immediate skin tightening and lifting benefits. Dermal fillers can get a bad rap for affording too much volume (think duck lips), but when administered by a master injector at Hendrick, fillers can reveal natural-looking and flattering results.
- For example, injecting filler into the cheek area can help enhance cheek volume and so much more. The cheek lift creates a cascade of benefits by lifting the skin around the mouth area and improving the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. A cheek lift with fillers can even improve the look of jowls!
- For another example, using filler along the jawline also helps create a more defined jaw, but it can also help lift and tighten skin on the neck, revealing a more youthful chin and profile.
