This post has been updated: Five Best for Sagging Skin 2014

You asked and I listened. It is clear from comments from members of the Truth In Aging community that solutions for sagging skin are critical. I’ve been scouring for newer and better and have some breakthrough finds to update my Five Best for sagging skin. Lift your spirits and read on.

  • Ultra Renew Plus

    Ultra Renew Plus ($149 in the shop) By far the best skin firmer that I have found is ultrasound. The way it works is that the ultrasound energy causes rapid oscillation of tissue and this promotes movement of fluid waves against cells. This action facilitates movement between the inner and outer cells and thereby increasing fibroblastic activity and collagen formation. Ultra Renew Plus permits ultrasound to be used at the same time as LED light (red is best for firming and plumping) and weekly sessions can be augmented by the Regular use at home (three to five times a week) has noticeably lifted sagging that was starting around my mouth and jawline. Read more on ultrasound and how it works.

  • Medik8 Growth Factor

    Medik8 Growth Factor ($185 in the shop). I recently tested this serum from the UK and it has become a firm (pun intended) favorite. It has a good effect on wrinkles – even those forehead ones – and a very noticeable lifting and tightening. EGF is bioidentical to human EGF, but synthetically produced – hence, the pre-fix SH (synthetic human) rather than RH (recombitant human). Medik8 claims that its EGF is more potent than barley-derived ones. Based on personal use, I would agree with that – and it is triple-filtered for extra purity.

  • E’shee Multi-Tensor Extreme Face Lift Serum

    E’shee Multi-Tensor Extreme Face Lift Serum ($159 in the shop). E’shee’s petite products punch way above their weight and the latest is no exception. Multi-Tensor lifts and firms – and not by merely making the skin feel superficially tighter. After several weeks, my jawline looked more contoured, my cheeks firmer and my forehead actually seemed a little lifted, as well as less noticeably lined. And I am continuing to be impressed. The key ingredients are sulfates (not the bad kind you get in shampoo), starting withmagnesium sulfate, an anti-inflammatory; manganese with antioxidant properties; zinc, an anti-immune booster; and copper. Another key ingredient is whey protein, which contains the TGF-1 protein that stimulates collagen and elastin production.

  • Your Best Face Control

    Your Best Face Control ($160 in the shop). Control has been formulated with several sag fighting peptides. Both work on elasticity, the loss of which leads to the dreaded droop. One is Syn-Hycan and the company that makes it tested it on women aged 56 to 65 years with loose skin on face and forearms and claims a significant decrease in sagging and double chins. Another ingredient in Control, Relistase has also been designed to treat sagginess and restore firmness to the skin. As you would expect with YBF, there’s a ton of antioxidants here. This is my go to night serum and find it hydrating as well as firming, lasting me through to morning.

  • La Vie Celeste Eclairage Restorative Serum

    La Vie Celeste Eclairage Restorative Serum ($98.50 in the shop) New from a favorite natural formulator, this serum majors on the firming peptide, caprooyl tetrapeptide-3 is derived from a growth factor, namely TGF-ß and stimulates production of laminin 5 (as well as collagen VII). Tetrapeptide-3 is also supposed to be pretty good at beefing up fibronectin (by 60% apparently). The bonus factor of Eclairage is that it also brightens the skin with other dominant actives, including oligopeptide 68, a peptide that is supposed to be more potent at lightening the skin than arbutin or vitamin C. Bearberry and turmeric are also skin lighteners and are amongst a ton of carefully chosen actives.

    I agree with Rick. I wish I could afford $100.00+ for a oz. or so of a cream I .am fairly sure the high end products do a good job but am also sure their mark up is very high. I was never over weight but got very ill/had lots of pain and spent almost a year just sitting or lying down...thus parts of my body got wrinkles.

    Hi Amy
    There aren't any good firming neck creams that I have tried. But the Ultra Renew Plus works on the neck too. As do some of the face creams mentioned in my 2014 update - especially Prime:

    How about necks? There are many products recommended for faces, but what about necks?

    Hi Karren, first of all congratulations on loosing weight. I have a few ideas for you. One would be to try exercise. You don't need to bulk up, but lean muscle will give you a little padding. You could take a look at The Bar Method for great, shape changing routines that work at any age. As far as creams go, there is Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Body Repair Lift and we have an LED and ultrasound device for cellulite and firming:
