The appearance of skin aging on the face and neck is often a natural product of decreased exfoliation as well as a reduction in the collagen production in the deeper dermal layers. As it progresses it can cause your skin to lose its youthful elasticity and tone. In time wrinkles and sagging skin can leave you looking older than you feel.
Here at the Institute for Plastic Surgery located in Bloomington, Illinois, Dr. Otis Allen offers several different options for addressing the appearance of skin aging. After a consultation and basic assessment, he can help you choose the method that is best for you.
Many patients interested in addressing sagging skin around the brow, neck, and chin will choose to receive an Ultherapy® treatment. This non-invasive technique has been approved, by the Food and Drug Administration.
It uses a safe ultrasound energy to gently lift and tighten the skin in the treatment area without invasive surgery or prolonged recovery time. The ultrasound energy effectively refreshes the youthful appearance of the skin while also encouraging collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis to boost your skin’s natural elasticity.
