35yrs young and lost elasticity
Doctor Answers 11
Skin does lose its elasticity as we age. There are several non-invasive options available for skin tightening including ultrasound technologies such as Ulthera. At a visit with a facial plastic specialist, you could discuss the options available for you.

Thanks for your query. Skin tightening occurs from collagen remodeling and topical creams affect very less. There are various options available for the same like thermage or thermi RF. They work on the principle of providing heat which stimulates remodeling of collagen and tightens the skin gradually. Hope it helps.

The approach generally is through multiple treatments with creams, fillers, and devices. See a credible dermatologist and take it from there.

The appropriate treatment is dictated by the problem you have.
Depending on the severity of the problem and the amount of improvement you're after, you will need one or more of multitude of available treatments. The categories of treatment are spa-level treatments, non-invasive medical treatments, minimally invasive treatments, and surgical treatments.
An experienced plastic surgeon can best determine which of these you are a better candidate for and balance your goals, the financial costs, your recovery limitations, and any other concerns to make the best recommendation. Based on your worries, it certainly sounds like you need a minimum of good, medical grade skin care. I do wonder if you'd respond well to volume enhancement using a product such as Voluma or Restylane Lyft. You can get a surprising amount of tightening and lifting from those products.
You have many excellent surgeons in your area. Take the next step by calling for a consult and look forward to a better looking you.
Best of luck.
A great new procedure is Venus Viva. This is a fractional radio frequency skin resurfacing. Typically patients will have 3 treatments, 1 month apart with minimal down time. This procedure will help import skin texture, tone, and give you a nice "glow".
You should also be very consistent with good skin care products (i.e, daily sunscreen and Retin-A use)
Hope this helps.
Skin rejuvenation and elasticity
Dear Patient from West Palm Beach,
Rejuvenating skin is mostly about injury and repair. The body has great abilities to rebuild itsself when injured.
Some lasers and treatments are mild and therefore have mild results.
If you have a few weeks to recover, full ablative laser resurfacing can offer some of the best results.
I hope this was helpful.
Sagging skin at 35 - what to do
Thank you for asking about your sagging skin.
- First of all, anyone who tells you what to do for sagging skin without at least a photo, and ideally an examination is not giving you helpful information.
- There are lots and lots of creams, fillers and lasers being promoted - and results can range from zero to very satisfactory, usually temporary (ie a year or so) improvement.
- On the other hand, in some women the best investment by far is surgery - with permanent results that no cream or office treatment comes close to matching.
- It entirely depends on your skin, your life style and exactly what the problem areas are.
- Other than a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and a really good sun block - I suggest you see both a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic dermatologist, get their opinions and decide what seems best for you.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
An Uplift, not a Facelift! Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin. The FDA – approved device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin including those typically addressed in a surgical face lift without disturbing the surface of the skin.
