Dermatocare:  Does skin firming creams really help in tightening the loose skin? What kind of aesthetic procedures can be done to tighten sagging cheeks or turkey neck? 

Dr Chytra: Skin creams help to a certain extent only. Once sagging has set in, it will require stimulation through heat or growth factors. Most commonly we use:

  • Dermal fillers: Sagging of skin in the mid-cheek and later in neck areas starts due to loss of volume or fat. This needs to be corrected with the help of dermal fillers. Long lasting fillers like Juvederm voluma or Restylane or Modelis are ideal for this. For further details read: How Fillers Are Used For Anti-Ageing- Interview With Top Cosmetic Dermatologist.
  • Radio-frequency devices: Devices like Intragen or Pologen help by heating the skin to stimulate collagen production and over time, the skin tightens and the sagging decreases. This is great for jawline, sagging necks etc.
  • Botox: Along with above modalities, Botox can be used to relax the tension and negative pull using a technique called Nefretiti lift. This is ideal for long lasting and satisfying results in neck area. For more details read: Botox Injections- Results Versus Its Cost And Side Effects
