Ageing and Sagging skin in Birmingham

Treatments for the effects of ageing and sagging skin at Secret Aesthetics

The ageing process is a natural part of life, though it brings fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin on the face, neck and body.

When you’re young, your skin has great elasticity as a result of large amounts of naturally-occurring collagen and elastin levels, paired with a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. Collagen, elastic and hyaluronic acid all play a part in your skin health in terms of keeping youthful texture and tone, as well as helping to heal wounds.

As you grow older, your body becomes less efficient in producing these natural building blocks and your skin loses its elasticity. 

How skin is affected by ageing is individual to each person in terms of the areas of the face that are affected and the degree to which each physical aspect of the ageing process affects you. 

Because of this, we work in close consultation with you to identify and suggest one, or a combination of, treatments to best address your concerns and desires, transforming your skin to give you more youthful looks.


When the skin on the chin and neck becomes saggy, this area can lose definition. Endolift is a minimally invasive laser-based liposuction treatment. It lifts the face, tightens sagging skin on your neck and smooths out the area under your chin to lift and restore structure to your face and definition to your jawline.

Biostimulators are injectables that work by stimulating your body into producing collagen, which forms a framework to support your skin cells and tissue. They also improve skin quality in general, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Profhilo® is a revolutionary treatment that moisturises your skin from within. It is a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into the skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® is most commonly used on the face and the neck, where it dramatically reduces sagging skin. It is also highly effective in treating skin laxity on the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area. The treatment offers skin benefits for patients of all ages.

Sculptra® offers a solution to reducing the appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles and sagging skin. The results appear naturally and steadily over time, subtly and gradually helping to restore facial volume. With the effects lasting up to two years, Sculptra® is a truly superior dermal filler.

One of the factors in the ageing of skin is its contact with the sun. Harmful UV rays penetrate the skin and damage collagen and elastin cells, accelerating sagging, wrinkling and causing discoloration. These rays are especially harmful in the Summer, though the sun is often strong enough in the UK at other times of the year to damage your skin, too, even if it’s cold or cloudy. 

For this reason, we’d strongly advise on using Sun Shield™ Broad Spectrum Sunscreens by Obagi. This medical grade skincare product protects against the harmful effects of sun exposure across a range of skin types and needs, and is ideal to provide daily protection from the sun to help prevent the signs of skin ageing.

Obagi medical-grade skincare is backed by over 30 years of clinical experience. Founded by leading skincare experts, Obagi products are designed to help minimise the appearance of premature skin ageing, skin damage and sagging skin, and are primarily available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas, and other skincare professionals.

The process of oxidation in the human body produces unstable chemicals called free radicals. These chemicals damage cell membranes and other structures within the body, leading to the signs of ageing. Antioxidants in the form of vitamins work to combat these free radicals. Secret Aesthetics’ IV Vitamin Drip Therapy provides both bespoke and A La Carte options, including our Total Body Service option. This doctor-administered drip contains 32 vitamins, including high doses of Vitamin C, helping to combat sagging skin and other signs of ageing.

Prescription-strength Tretinoin contains active ingredients to combat signs of ageing, including wrinkles, rough skin, uneven skin tone, sagging skin and enlarged pores. Tretonoid works by aiding the replacing of older skin with newer skin. It works best when used as part of a skin care program that includes products or treatments that protect the treated skin from the sun. Secret Aesthetics will be happy to suggest such a program.

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that uses gentle laser energy to heat the skin, which stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen proteins. It improves the appearance of fine lines, sagging skin, wrinkles, and redness. This revolutionary treatment provides an excellent solution to diminish the signs of ageing through total skin rejuvenation. 

After one session, you will notice your skin looks brighter and more youthful, and your pores look smaller. For best results, we recommend three to six treatments, each spaced two to three weeks apart.
