Loose Sagging Face

LOOSE SAGGING FACE

As we age, saggy skin becomes more of a problem. This process is due to the fact that our skin turn over slows down, less collagen is produced and so the skin on our face begins to lose elasticity and become more crepe like. This results in the development of lines, wrinkles, and eventually deep folds. Often times the process begins with delicate lines such as expression lines, brow lines, and mild crow’s feet and later develops into more unsightly sagging in the entire face. In the past face lifting surgery has been the only way to deal with or reverse this effect.

Today however there are newer, non-surgical techniques available, such as Titan. Face Forward offers Titan Procedure for the treatment of loose or lax skin. Titan utilises a safe, infrared light to heat the deep dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. With each Titan pulse, you will feel a brief heating sensation. The heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines.

Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where skin is lax. Loose skin along the jaw line, under the chin, the abdomen and upper arm have responded particularly well to the procedure.

Since the Titan procedure is heating tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type can be treated.

Most people require two or more treatments to achieve the required result. Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.

Some people see results straight away. However, for most patients, the results are gradual over a three to six month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
