Facial Volume Loss & Sagging Skin
Our skin depends on a range of substances to give it its elasticity, resilience, and structure. As we grow older, the skin begins to lose volume. Loss of facial volume occurs due to diminished amounts of fat and other substances in the tissues. Without these crucial substances, the skin becomes lax, leading to lost definition–particularly in the midface region.
At Adonia Medical Clinic, Maida Vale, London, Dr. Ifeoma Ejikeme and her team offer a range of treatments to counteract a loss of volume and sagging skin. A specialist in minimally-invasive treatments Dr. Ejikeme uses the most state-of-the-art techniques to achieve impressive results.
A combination of dermal fillers and Botox can be used to treat sagging skin around the neck and jawline.
Volume Enhancing Treatments
One of the best ways to combat the effects of aging is to restore lost facial volume. Temporary fillers offer an excellent way to enhance volume and increase structure and definition.
Today, the most widely used fillers are hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a hydrating substance naturally found in the skin. As the body ages, it gradually loses its capacity to produce hyaluronic acid and supply the skin with its lubricating effect. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it provides an instant boost to the skin. Because HA is naturally found in skin, it is biocompatible and highly tolerated. Fillers have been optimized to treat different concerns. Some formulas are best for deep creases around the mouth, others have been optimized for the midface regions, specifically sunken, hollow cheeks. The results can be long-lasting, with some fillers enduring for up to 18 months.
Treatments for Sagging Skin
Laser Treatments. Laser treatment is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique can address sagging skin and encourage the new collagen growth. Lasers heats the deep layers of the skin, prompting the skin to contract. Typically, the initial tightening effect is visible immediately. Laser treatments are considered safe and can be used in the face and neck.
Silhouette Soft. One of the most novel non-surgical procedures available today, Silhouette Soft is a skin lifting technique that can help restore the skin’s structure. During a procedure, an absorbable thread is inserted beneath the skin. The skin is then delicately compressed until the desired sculpting effects have been achieved. Once placed, the thread stimulates the deep layers of the skin, prompting new collagen production. The firming effect will continue as collagen builds up in the skin.
