Can Fillers Help With Sagging Skin?

iStock 514321245 There are many ways to tighten sagging skin. It might surprise you to learn that dermal fillers are one of them!

Fillers promote the production of a youth-boosting protein called collagen. If that wasn’t enough, they also support drooping areas of the face and body for a more lifted look. Let’s dive deeper into the skin-firming properties of these versatile injectables.

Stimulate Collagen Production

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our skin. It’s responsible for a smooth, firm, and youthful appearance. However, it doesn’t stick around forever — collagen loss begins in our 20s!

That’s where collagen-stimulating fillers like Sculptra come in. They jump-start the natural collagen generation process that has started to slow down. They also encourage new collagen growth for a beautiful skin tightening effect.

Give Drooping Areas a Dose of Volume

Volume loss is another unavoidable fact of getting older. As you lose volume, you lose part of the supportive structure that holds up your skin. Rebuilding that structure with fillers is a great way to combat unwanted sagging.

For example, experienced injector Dr. Shaun Patel often sees patients dealing with lax skin on their lower faces. Cheek volume loss is usually to blame. In these cases, he may suggest cheek filler to restore lost volume and lift the skin from above. It’s part of his comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Target Your Face and Body

Sagging skin doesn’t just affect the face. The skin on your body can also become slack and loose. Fortunately, the same dermal fillers you know and love can be used from the chin down!

Body fillers are a great way to tighten virtually any problem area. Those areas include your upper arms, knees, and buttocks.
