Skin Laxity / Saggy Skin Treatment in Cleveland, Ohio

Our skin loses elasticity with age, and skin can begin to sag. Volume loss occurs as we age, creating a deflated, sunken appearance to the face. Tightening the soft tissue layers of the face and neck, along with restoring volume back to the face will optimize the results and give you a more youthful appearance.

Why is my face sagging?

Muscles tend to reduce in size and strength over time, and we see classic symptoms of aging such as drooping cheeks, chins, and necks. Facial fat decreases in volume and descends as a result of gravity. Beyond the changes in muscles and fat, the supportive ligaments tend to lose their elasticity over time, increasing downward descent of the soft tissues of the face.

What treats facial skin laxity?

There are various facial rejuvenation treatments for sagging and loose skin. Two common approaches are the facelift and the mini-lift. A facelift will address the cumulative effects of genetics and gravity on the face. A facelift will elevate sagging skin, redefine aging facial contours, soften deep creases, and minimize heavy or sagging jowls. Modern facelifts create more natural-looking results than ever before, with multiple approaches and techniques available.

Are there other skin laxity treatments I can get in Cleveland?

Mini-lifts are usually reserved for patients with less skin relaxation, targeting the sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and forehead that can make someone look aged, tired, and stressed. The recovery time with a mini-lift is much shorter than a traditional facelift but the results are less dramatic. Options such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, and skin resurfacing treatments often complement the results of a facelift.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
