Loose, sagging skin is one the most common and most common signs of facial aging. As a result, skin rejuvenation and facial enhancement are some of the most sought after skin tightening treatments for men and women. As we age, the skin will inevitably go through some changes. How people age will vary greatly, and most experience more than one symptom, especially in the face. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to address these concerns.

Everything from pigmentation changes to wrinkles to sagging skin can be hidden, reduced, or eliminated thanks to advancements in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic solutions. Even when you use sunscreen regularly, use high-end skincare products, and have a healthy lifestyle, signs of aging may develop on the skin.

Most patients start to see these signs in the face, with loose, sagging skin developing noticeably around the midface region. Wrinkles, folds, and sagging can also happen on the brow and around the eyes. It can be distressing, especially for patients who are in their 30s or 40s. At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery, we help patients achieve facial rejuvenation through comprehensive cosmetic procedures. We offer treatments that can tighten the face on the skin to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance.

Causes of Loose Skin

While you may not notice it right away, the skin can begin to increase laxity and start developing wrinkles and a drooping appearance over time. This can occur for different reasons, including both internal and external factors.

Collagen production within the body, for example, decreases with age, meaning the skin becomes more susceptible to lasting damage as we get older. Other factors are well beyond our control, like gravity, sun exposure, and harsh weather, which can wear down the skin and cause free radicals to form between the tissue. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso can help you understand what form of Grand Rapids skin tightening treatment can help address your concerns.

When Should I Start Loose Skin Treatments?

There is no right age to start caring for your skin. Cleaning and moisturizing your skin regularly, especially when you start at a young age, can help fight off bacteria and keep your skin healthy longer. You can use preventative methods in your 20s and 30s to help maintain your skin’s collagen and elasticity.

Many patients begin skin rejuvenation procedures like THERMIsmooth and Profound around this time. Older patients in their 40s and 50s will benefit from practices like BOTOX and laser resurfacing methods to reverse aging symptoms along with the most common non-surgical treatments in our practice, including Ulthera and Profound. Ultimately, the best form of loose skin treatment Grand Rapids area patients will find, will depend on the severity of your skin tightening symptoms. For those who cannot achieve their desired results through non-invasive methods, cosmetic surgery solutions like a facelift can help to lift and tighten the skin.

Type of Grand Rapids Skin Tightening Treatments Available

The Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery provides patients with high-quality cosmetic surgery services offered by a board-certified plastic surgeon. We understand the importance of customizing treatments to suit everyone’s needs individually, as this can help deliver the best results for everyone.

What Type of Skin Tightening Treatments Are Right For Me?

There is no one-size-fits-all approach for skin tightening treatments to lift and tighten loose skin. What provides the most rejuvenating results will vary for each patient. At the Bengtson Center, we customize procedures to help patients address their needs to complement them best.

In some cases, this may mean combining treatments, incorporating medical-grade skincare products, and even considering cosmetic surgery. For those who have more severe signs of aging, such as noticeably loose skin that sags and droops away from the face, facial plastic surgery can help. Procedures such as a facelift or neck lift can turn back the hands of time and help you look 10 or 20 years younger.
