4 Ways to Tighten Saggy Skin


4 Ways to Tighten Saggy Skin - Kristals Cosmetics

Among skin problems that develop as we age, from wrinkles to fine lines to blemishes, saggy skin is one of the most serious issues. It simply takes more time and treatment to address the problem. Unfortunately, it’s probably not going to go away with just a cream alone.

However, you’re not out of luck when it comes to saggy skin. You can begin with some effective at-home treatments, and then talk with your doctor about some cutting-edge cures that might be available.

#1 Try an Overnight Firming Treatment
It’s going to take more than moisturizer to solve sagging skin. The treatments that really seem to play a role in sagging skin are often called “overnight firming treatments,” “firming moisture creams” or other similar names.

You’ll want to look for ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C or alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Even then, it might take weeks or months to notice a difference with these treatments.

For under your eyes, Kristals Cosmetics does have a product that brings quick results: our Diamond Select Anti-Gravity Spark Eye Mask, which Glossybox is featuring in its December 2016 box.

#2 Look at Lasers
Your dermatologist likely uses a number of different laser or infrared treatments to tighten up the skin and promote the development of collagen. Some of the possibilities out there include CoolTouch, Cutera Titan and Palomar Lux DeepIR, among others.

#3 Consider a Filler
Fillers, which are cutting edge injections that differ from botox in that they plump and “fill in” the skin, seem to have a secondary effect of enhancing the growth of elastin. Elastin is the key component that keeps your skin firm, flexible and youthful-looking.

#4 Talk to Your Doctor about a Facelift
Of course, nothing can solve saggy skin as quickly and dramatically as a facelift. And the results and techniques for this treatment are constantly improving. As with all cosmetic surgeries, however, there are many risks as well as benefits. It’s important to discuss this treatment option thoroughly with a trusted health care professional before proceeding.
