I'm 52 years old. My skin's started to look saggy, specially around my chin and jaw line. Is there any non-surgical treatments to tighten my skin? How much does it usually cost around the Washington DC area? I'd appreciate any info.
Non-surgical Procedures to Fix Sagging Jaw Line?

Facial Skin Tightening
We have good results with Thermage for the jawline.
1) Thermage, WHEN PROPERLY DONE, can help to clean up and tighten the loose jawline. Almost everyone gets improvement, but the improvement can be major or subtle. So you have to have realistic expectations. See the link below.
2) Injecting Radiesse or Juvederm between the chin and the jowl (in the "pre-jowl sulcus") can create a much smoother jawline.
3) In New York, we charge $2500 for Thermage. It only has to be done once, you see the peak effect in 4 to 6 months, and the result is long lasting.
Non surgical methoeds for sagging skin of jaw line
In a 52 y.o person with jowels and sagging submental skin hte best and most long lasting results still require surgery to repair the underlying muscles and fascial supports.
In my experience, over30 yrs., lasers and chemical peels are valuable adjuncts but they cant produce the results of a multi plane face lift.
