Everyone is blessed with different skin, and that skin reacts differently to environmental factors and aging. This is just a natural part of life, but if you find your skin is aging more than you’d like, you don’t have to suffer from skin folds or wrinkles.
The reason your skin sags is because it loses its elasticity. Over time, aging and exposure to various environmental factors dries out the skin and breaks down connective tissue. Collagen and elastin fibers, which lie in the dermis, weaken. The number of oils naturally produced by the body decreases with age, too. All of these compound to create lines in the face and drooping skin.
In today’s day and age, there are a multitude of individual treatments available to reduce wrinkles and repair sagging skin. Sometimes patients need more than one to effectively address the problems, but each circumstance is different. Here are some treatment options:
Plastic surgery. For decades, surgeons have been removing wrinkles with face pulls and other procedures. Surgeries now are safer and more affordable than ever, and the healing time is reduced greatly.
Infrared light. Las Colinas brings you Titan, an infrared-emitting machine that repairs areas of loose skin by targeting the dermis with light. Infrared light is completely safe, and the treatment is performed without anesthetic. For more information on Titan, visit this blog post on Titan.
Salves and medicines. Different oils and pharmaceutical-grade products have been developed to reduce wrinkles. Consult a physician to learn the best product for your skin.
