Sagging skin

For firm, toned skin, the human body creates elastin and collagen. However, over time, the reserves of these two molecules are depleted, causing the skin to slacken. Discover Epilium & Skin’s aesthetic medicine solutions for smooth, rejuvenated skin, including wrinkles, minor skin imperfections and sagging skin.

Sagging skin: why does skin tend to sag with age?

Elastin, responsible for the skin’s firmness, and collagen, guaranteeing its good quality, reproduce more slowly with age. The fat that supports the temples and cheekbones tends to melt over time. These two factors lead to a loss of elasticity and facial sagging over time.

Epilium & Skin Paris explains the solutions!

How is sagging skin treated in aesthetic medicine?

A number of solutions are available in aesthetic medicine to restore a fresh face:

Focused ultrasound or HIFU for facial contouring

This reshaping technique restores tension to the face, neck and décolleté. By heating the different layers of the epidermis, focused ultrasound will boost collagen synthesis, restoring your skin’s elasticity.

What results to expect:

  • Reshape the oval of the face
  • Raising cheekbones or eyebrow tails
  • Smooth wrinkles around the mouth
  • Regenerate neck and décolleté

A single session is generally sufficient to treat the first signs of sagging skin. For mature skin, a treatment plan will be proposed. Treatment time varies from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the area treated.

Results are considered total and definitive 3 months after treatment, and last between 12 and 18 months. From €300 per session.

Hyaluronic acid injections to fill wrinkles

This technique fills in wrinkles and restores facial volumes, which are responsible for skin slackening.

By choosing a thicker or thinner hyaluronic acid, our doctors can restore the volume lost through fat loss, erasing unsightly wrinkles and fine lines.

While maintaining the most natural look possible, these injections will enable you to maintain a harmonious face.

The procedure is fairly quick, averaging around twenty minutes, and not very painful thanks to the lidocaine content of the products offered at our center.

Results are immediate and last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the product injected and the dynamism of the area.

Dermapen Microneedling for sagging skin

Using a sterile tip with multiple needles, the practitioner makes several passes over the face to create incisions in the dermis. These incisions will encourage the dermis to reconstitute and regenerate, through the healing mechanism. The body is therefore called upon to produce more elastin and collagen in response to the “aggression” it feels it has suffered.

This technique can be combined with highly concentrated peptide serums, which penetrate deep into the dermis through the incisions created.

Dermapen is therefore indicated not only for sagging skin, but also for working on the surface of skin tissue: uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and hyperpigmentation spots.

Several sessions are recommended to appreciate the benefits of microneedling, on the order of 3 to 4 in the attack phase at 2-week intervals, followed by a maintenance session every 3 to 6 months to maintain results. From €150.
