Comprehensive Treatments for Loose Skin on the Face

As you age, you will find that your skin will start to loosen on the face — causing an unfortunate sagging appearance that can impact your confidence, your personal relationships and your professional endeavors.

At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, we recognize the toll that skin loosening on the face can take on your life, which is why we offer personalized solutions designed to provide you with the natural-looking results you crave. Our treatments for skin loosening on the face include surgical and non-surgical options, such as the facelift, eyelid surgery and brow lift procedures, as well as BBL (IPL) light therapy and injectable dermal filler treatments.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Skin Tightening

If you are looking for instant results with minimal downtime, then a non-surgical treatment option for loose skin on the face may be best for you. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, we have been accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, which ensures that we are one of the leading outpatient surgical centers in the area. Dr. Schaffer and his team specialize in the following procedures:

  • BBL (IPL) Light Therapy — BroadBand Light Therapy is an innovative cosmetic treatment option that relies on the natural power of light to provide patients with transformative results. Dr. Schaffer relies on cutting-edge technology to apply pulsed light therapy to affected areas on the face, improving skin texture and reducing the impact of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. With this procedure, you will not have any downtime and can immediately resume normal activities. However, you should avoid direct sun exposure for 24-48 hours.
  • Injectable Dermal Fillers — Dr. Christopher Schaffer offers personalized treatment with reliable and effective dermal fillers, including BOTOX, Juvederm, Restylane and more. Injectables work to restore volume and naturally tighten skin loosening on the face, and they are ideal for patients who are experiencing the initial signs of aging. Dermal fillers offer instant results that last for months.

Surgical Treatments for Skin Tightening

Surgical skin tightening procedures are the best option for patients who are experiencing significant skin loosening on the face and would like results that last for many years. Dr. Christopher Schaffer is an AAAASF Accredited provider who offers the following surgical treatment options:

  • Facelift — This surgical procedure is a favorite choice among patients who are experiencing significant skin loosening on their faces. During this procedure, the surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten facial muscles in order to naturally rejuvenate the face. While the recovery typically takes 2 to 4 weeks, results will last for a decade or more.
  • Brow Lift — The brow lift is a cosmetic surgery that focuses on the upper portion of the face. The surgeon works to reposition the muscles in the forehead and brow region while simultaneously lifting the skin, ultimately eliminating deep lines in the area. The recovery period lasts 7 to 10 days, with results lasting for years.
  • Eyelid Surgery — Performed along the natural crease in the eyelid, this surgery can lift either the upper or lower lid, or if desired, both eyelids. By lifting the skin along the eyelid and tightening the muscles, the surgeon can provide you with a refreshed appearance and improved visibility. The typical recovery lasts for 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the nature of your procedure. Results will last for years.

Combination Treatments for Optimal Skin Outcomes

In many cases, a combination of non-surgical and surgical treatments can provide you with the best possible results. By combining treatments, you can address a variety of issues that may be contributing to skin loosening and ultimately achieve natural-looking results.
