Sagging skin on the face and around the eyes can make you appear to be tired or upset, rather than accurately reflecting your emotions. Excess sagging skin beneath your face can create the appearance of a double chin, even if you are slim and trim and maintaining a healthy weight. Saggy skin that hangs off the arms may leave you feeling self-conscious about wearing short sleeves, and a drooping pouch of skin on the abdomen can make you feel uncomfortable in revealing clothing, or in intimate situations.
Many people turn to various over the counter solutions in an effort to restore the fresh, firm quality of youthful skin. Unfortunately, most topically-applied products typically make big promises and fail to deliver. If loose, sagging skin is keeping you from appearing as young on the outside as you feel on the inside, you may be a good candidate for our Los Angeles Ultherapy treatment or one of our other skin-tightening, anti-aging rejuvenation treatments.
Why Does Aging Skin Sag?
Young, youthful skin is kept firm and supple by the elastin and collagen in the skin. Collagen, which is produced naturally in the deepest layer of the skin, gives the skin cells the structure necessary for that youthful and tight appearance, while elastin keeps it smooth, flexible, and elastic. As we age, collagen is no longer produced at the same rate, and the decrease in collagen causes skin to start lose its firmness and structure. Decreased elastin increases the appearance of wrinkles. Many people lose facial volume as they age, increasing the droopy, tired appearance. Some factors that can influence sagging skin include:
- Genetics. Regardless of lifestyle choices, some people are simply genetically predisposed to rapidly aging skin, and will notice wrinkles and sagging earlier than others.
- Lifestyle Choices. Prolonged sun exposure can toughen and wrinkle skin in younger patients, and smoking is linked to an acceleration of the skin’s aging process.
- Weight Loss. Part of what gives skin its volume and tautness is the fat stored within the skin structure. Anyone who loses a significant amount of weight, particularly in a short period of time, may notice loose and sagging skin when the fat deposits diminish.

Ultherapy to Tighten and Rejuvenate Sagging Skin
One of the most popular treatment options we offer to combat loose skin is Ultherapy, a safe, noninvasive treatment that addresses sagging skin right at its source. By emitting ultrasound waves into the targeted area, Ultherapy naturally stimulates collagen production while also stimulating the surrounding muscle structure beneath to restore, so you can regain a more youthful appearance. The ultrasound technology used is completely noninvasive, making it a very low-risk procedure that is virtually painless, for optimum patient comfort. Ultherapy is an excellent option for clients who want noticeable results and younger skin without the downtime and discomfort associated with more invasive procedures. The treatment lasts only 20 to 40 minutes, and most clients can resume their normal activities immediately, with little to no side effects or discomfort.
Los Angeles Skin Solutions
Marcus Medical Spa uses multiple methods to counteract loose skin that provide noticeable and long-lasting results. For patients with fine lines and wrinkles on facial skin, the IPL photofacial can subtly tighten the skin while also reducing the appearance of age spots, rosacea, and skin blemishes. For patients whose sagging skin is associated with a loss of volume, we also offer Kybella and other injectable products, which can be used on their own or in conjunction with another treatment such as Ultherapy. We also offer a variety of chemical peels and other noninvasive treatments to counteract sagging skin, as well as improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

During your consultation, we will get to know you and the unique needs of your skin, and we will work with you to develop a personal treatment that gets results.
