Exercises For Your Saggy Skin? There Are Better Options!
- Posted on: Oct 15 2016
You work hard, exercising your muscles and body into shape…so, doesn’t it make sense that exercising your facial muscles could improve their shape as well? It’s a common question, and the answer is a qualified “yes.”
Aging is a daunting process…and definitely not for the faint of heart. Saggy facial skin seems to be an aging-process given. You may have wished for a non-surgical way to tighten your skin and have heard about facial exercises.
There are definitely some things to consider before you start “working out” on your face.
- The muscles in your face can increase in size with exercise just as any muscle in your body. Adding lost volume can result in less sagging.However, the exercises required involve continuous facial expressions like squinting and puckering that can deepen fine lines and wrinkles and contribute to crow’s feet and lines around your mouth.
There is a better way to increase facial volume. Dr. Callender uses FDA-approved synthetic injectable fillers, like Radiesse® which erases fine lines, folds and wrinkles by augmenting your skin’s natural collagen supply. Fillers work immediately to add volume and lift. Radiesse® is safe, long-lasting, quick and effective way to add volume and contour to your face. In just one or two treatments, you will see a youthful, natural look that lasts. Radiesse® is unique in that it acts as a scaffold, providing structure, stimulating your own collagen to grow.
- Facial exercises cannot increase collagen in your face.
- To help maintain the natural firmness of your skin, look for peptides in your skincare products. Retinoids and alpha hydroxyl acids, such as glycolic acid, are also helpful in producing collagen.
- Sun damage is the biggest contributor to agin skin. Facial exercises can’t reduce age spots, fine lines or wrinkles that come with years of exposure to the sun.
At Callender Cosmetic Center we offer a variety of treatment options including fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and Botox – that can treat the visible signs of aging that no amount of facial exercise can touch!
