Loose or sagging skin on the face or body is a common cosmetic concern for both men and women. The natural aging process, genetics, weight fluctuations and other factors can contribute to volume loss and sagging skin. Fortunately, there are effective treatment options for volume loss and skin laxity that don’t require surgery or extensive downtime.
How Volume Loss Treatments Work?
Volume loss treatments aim to restore fullness to areas of the face like the cheeks, improve the appearance of sagging skin and even treat cellulite in areas of the body like your hips and thighs.
Various volume loss treatment options work in different ways to help you achieve smoother, tighter skin. Some of the effective volume loss treatments that we offer here at Sarasota facial aesthetics include facial fillers, medical grade skincare and VelaShape® III.
- Injectable fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that retains up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water. Facial fillers work by temporarily plumping the skin to create a fuller, more youthful appearance and restore lost facial volume in the mid-face area.
- Consistent use of the right medical grade skincare products for your skin type and needs can help to improve the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles and other aging concerns. Medical grade skincare products work in a variety of ways, including stimulating collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid within your skin.
- VelaShape® III, a non-surgical body contouring treatment, uses a combination of radiofrequency, infrared energy and mechanical massage to not only smooth and tighten the skin, but also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Am I a Candidate?
You could be a great candidate for volume loss treatment if you are concerned about sagging skin, jowls, loss of facial volume, cellulite or other similar cosmetic concerns.
Some volume loss treatments will yield results more quickly than others. Facial fillers, for instance, can offer nearly instant results, with your final outcome developing around 2 weeks. Results from a new medical grade skincare routine, on the other hand, will develop more gradually over several weeks.
While it is impossible to stop the aging process altogether, pairing the right volume loss treatments with healthy lifestyle habits like eating a balanced diet, getting enough exercise and wearing daily sunscreen can help to slow the aging process and improve the appearance of sagging skin.
Volume Loss FAQ
What are the best treatments for sagging skin?
The best treatment for sagging skin will depend on your specific needs and goals. Facial fillers and a customized skincare regimen are excellent options for sagging skin and volume loss on your face, while non-surgical body contouring options like VelaShape are very effective at treating sagging skin on various areas of your body.
Can skin be tightened without surgery?
Yes, non-surgical treatments for sagging skin can effectively tighten your skin without surgery. But keep in mind that results won’t necessarily be as dramatic as those of a surgical facelift, abdominoplasty or other surgical procedure.
Will non-surgical body contouring help me lose weight?
No, non-surgical body contouring treatments are not suitable alternatives for traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for non-surgical body contouring like VelaShape should already be at or close to their target weight prior to treatment.
