After sudden weight loss a person may find that their face may appear hollow with some atrophy.
There are 3 different options available to fix loose skin.
First, a facelift may be performed. Surgical incisions can be made at the sides of the ears or in the temporal hairline. Facial skin and muscle is then tightened and excess skin is then removed. While this provides immediate results, there is significant downtime, scarring, and not to mention the expense.
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical approach to lifting and tightening. It is also a non-invasive procedure for the face. Ultherapy uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
Ultherapy works by directing ultrasound energy to the muscle and epidermis tissue, tightening the skin. Ultherapy can treat brows, jawline, cheeks, décolleté, and tighten the loose area under the chin. The downtime associated with Ultherapy is minimal. Patients are able to go back to work after their treatment!
A third option is dermal fillers; dermal fillers can provide impressive non-surgical results. Dermal fillers are temporary and can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Teosyal are Hyaluronic acid based that can be used to restore volume to a desired area. Dermal Fillers can be injected to areas such as temples, cheeks, lips, and jawline to tighten loose skin.
