I’m 65-years old and would like to consider having double chin injections. I was wondering what to do to remove sagging skin after the treatment. Do we need surgery or is there some degree of lifting and tightening that could fix this?
Skin laxity is assessed prior to double chin injections. Unfortunately, as we age, we we lose collagen and elastin from our skin. This can leave the skin with a sagging appearance, and when pinched, it takes a very long time to retract back to its original state. However, if you do end up with sagging skin after double chin injections, since we are removing the volume from under the skin, there are treatment modalities that ‘may’ help with skin tightening. These include, lasers, needling, ultrasound, or, surgery.
The skin may take a couple of months to retract back after treatment. Using a good skincare, such as vitamin c to stimulate collagen synthesis, vitamin a to help with cell renewal and an anti-aging moisturiser, plus a sunscreen everyday will also help. We have some Dr. Aspect skin care products available on our Cityskin website, too.
