Sagging Skin

Elastin in our skin, which gives it youthful plumpness, begins to break down over time due to sun exposure, weight fluctuation, genetics, and gravity. Gradually, the skin begins to sag and hang, creating a sad, aged, and worn appearance.

Sagging skin can also contribute to wrinkles and deep facial folds and may make you appear older or heavier than you really are. Even if you take good care of your skin, skin laxity is inevitable and will eventually occur to some extent.  

Recommended Treatments:

Skin rejuvenation treatments can address skin laxity and improve sagging skin. The FotoFacial® procedure, created by Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., uses intense pulsed light to boost collagen levels in the skin. Increased collagen levels tighten and contract the skin to reduce sagging so that the skin appears smoother and younger looking. Dr. Bitter also recommends the Y LIFT®, which is a structural volumizing procedure that lifts, rejuvenates, and improves the shape of the face. SkinTyte II™ is another treatment that addresses sagging skin by heating the tissues and stimulating new collagen to renew skin health.

If your skin is starting to sag or appear aged, Dr. Bitter can help. Contact us today to schedule your consultation with world-renowned board-certified dermatologist Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr. Call us at 408-358-5757 or fill out our online contact form today!
