These New Anti-Gravity Products Promise to Tighten Sagging Skin
New spa services and skin-care products can supposedly combat gravity—and the wrinkles and sagging skin that go with it as we age.
New spa services and skin-care products can supposedly combat gravityâ€”and the wrinkles and sagging skin that go with it as we age. Too good to be true? Not necessarily: â€œAnti-gravity skin care works in a stepwise fashion,â€ says Dendy Engelman, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. â€œNew collagen formation is induced, which leads to tightening, resulting in skin thatâ€™s stronger and more capable of fighting the detrimental effects of gravity.â€
The light therapy used in the anti-gravity facial ($225) at George the Salon in Chicago is especially promising. â€œThe ultrasonic stimulation can boost elasticity, leaving skin taut and toned,â€ says Dr. Engelman. For lifting perks that are more temporary, try:
Dior Capture Torale ($165; sephora.com)
This formula uses longoza plant extract to add plumpness to skin.
Glamglowâs GravityMud ($69; at sephora.com)
The marine algae plasma in this treatment helps firm skin that has lost its suppleness.
