If home treatments don’t make your skin look tight, then you can seek treatment from a dermatologist. Don’t hesitate to consult your doctor about the best treatment options for tightening your cheek skin. Getting the right treatment can make facial skin problems like sagging cheeks resolved immediately and you will feel confident again.
Some of the procedures that can be an option to tighten the skin of the cheeks and the entire facial skin are as follows:
1. Laser peel
Laser peel treatment aims to increase collagen production in the deeper layers and exfoliate the top layer of skin to improve its texture and color. The results of this treatment are not permanent, but the skin can become firmer afterward.
2. Ultrasound therapy
Ultrasound therapy targets the areas under the chin, cheeks, and neck. These ultrasonic waves can penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. Some people only need this therapy once, but others need to do it several times.
This treatment can stimulate the production of protein in the deeper layers of the skin to make it firmer. Radiofrequency therapy is as equal or more effective than anti-aging creams. However, the treatment will need to be repeated in a few years.
Microneedling aims to produce collagen production using tiny needles that pierce the skin. This treatment needs several sessions for 3-4 months to see the results. However, it is usually not permanent.
Botox is a drug used to make skin look smoother, firmer, and reduce wrinkles. This treatment is given by injection without the need for major surgery (minimally invasive). The results of this treatment can last up to 3-4 months.
6. Facelift surgery
This surgical procedure is performed to remove excess and sagging skin. This operation can pull back the skin of the cheeks, making them look tight. The facelift surgery can use a long or shorter incision depending on the amount of repair needed.
