As you age, elastin fibers stretch and the skin droops. The underlying structure of the skin breaks down and in addition the many face muscles we have become slacker and the skin on the face becomes less elastic and looser, creating folds and lines.
Your genes and the level of sun exposure you’ve had during your lifetime determine how much you sag. Smoking contributes to skin sagging, too.
Dr. Kovak may recommend the use of the ThermaCoolTM system (Thermage®) or ThermiAesthetics™ which heats the inner layers of the skin and causes a face tightening. This procedure is done either once or twice depending on the patient’s level of sagginess.
