As you age, your skin begins to undergo certain changes. Your natural collagen and elastin starts to break down, causing your skin to lose its firmness. When compounded by sun exposure, environmental pollutants and lifestyle choices such as smoking or more than moderate drinking, these changes can transform smooth, youthful-looking skin into aged, sagging skin.
Fortunately, facial plastic surgery is no longer your only option when skin sags or your face falls. The field of cosmetic dermatology offers a variety of minimally invasive skin tightening treatments that can help firm, tighten and lift your skin to restore a more youthful appearance.
Skin tightening in Los Angeles is an effective way to improve skin quality and address issues associated with skin laxity. You can find out if these treatments will achieve your goals by speaking with Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald in person. Please call today to schedule a consultation at our Los Angeles cosmetic dermatology office.
