The Best Non-Surgical Ways to Plump Your Skin

It's normal: at around age 35, the natural loss of collagen sets in and your skin stops feeling quite as tight and plump as it once did. While this may be a difficult reality to come to terms with, there are several options available to you, aside from an surgery, that will help to plump your skin back up.  Take a look at some of the non-surgical ways to plump skin, available by the experts at 8 West Clinic.


When opting to plump your up your skin back to its youthfully full look, be sure to use skincare products that stimulate collagen

The main collagen-boosting skincare ingredient is retinol, which can be found in the ZO Skin Health skincare line at 8 West Clinic. Retamax is a prime example of a skincare product that will do wonders for plumping your skin in a non-surgical, non invasive, and simple way.

Retamax offers a particular kind of retinol that has a special delivery system to drop retinol deep into the dermis. While many forms of retinol are designed to sit on the outside layer of the skin, offering a wonderful glow through a resurfacing process, Retamax actually penetrates deep into the skin cells, stimulating collagen production. 


Broadband Light Treatments, also referred to as BBL and IPL, are a non-surgical way to tighten the skin quickly and effectively – and usually quite cost-effectively as well. 

8 West Clinic's Forever Young BBL™ treatment changes the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan; therefore, if you have this incredibly effective BBL treatment two times per year, you skin gets more youthful with each passing year. This 15-minute treatment involves no downtime, allowing you to get back to work right away with smoother, clearer, and tighter skin.


8 West Clinic's non-ablative Laser Treatment, called Halo™, is the only one of its kind on the market. Incredibly effective, this laser treatment combines two lasers in one – ablative and non-ablative – resurfacing the outer layer of the skin while also targeting deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and create a beautifully full, plump face. 

With up to five days of recovery time, patients are wowed by the virtual disappearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots. Halo™ can also treat areas of the neck, skin, and decolletage.


Finally, our skin tightening treatment, appropriately called Skin Tyte, is a targeted infrared laser treatment specifically designed to tighten areas of the face or body where more firmness is desired. This treatment involves infrared energy that penetrates deep into the skin, deeply heating dermal collagen, and initiates the natural healing process of the body, leading to increased tissue firming. 

Though it's a natural part of the aging process to experience a decrease in the fullness of your face, particularly the cheeks, there are certainly many opportunities to virtually turn back the hands of time and create a more plumped, youthful appearance.
