honey, there is NO cream in the world that will get rid of anything that is sagging on the face or neck.

your best bet is to have plastic surgery. That will get rid of the sagging.

The Isomers Advanced Recovery Serum always tightens things up for me. I use it about four times a year and DH always notices the difference.

No disrespect to the poster, but I find it incredibley sad how gullable our society has become to this anti-aging phenomena. Why do you think every Tom Dick and Harry has a line today? Because it generates billions of dollars from hard-working women who think every new bottle is going to be their fountain of youth. It is really, really sad that people actually believe these "serums" and potions are going to work. Save your money,and spend it on healthy food, a trainer, and if it is really bothering you....a lift. good luck. And before anyone says anything...it is not intended to be rude or judging. It is a general observation about the beauty industry.

You don't say how old you are but I'm having great luck with the Avon Platinum skincare line. Read the reviews on avon.com. Gals are saying it's the most firming treatment they have ever used. It's really helped my neck. Get it on Ebay though.

Seriously....there is NOTHING that will help short of a plastic surgeon!

Copper Peptides and exfoliation will rebuild collagen, which will help with sagging - to what degree and for how much sagging, I can't say as I am not experiencing any. But there is clinical study results proving the skin restructuring effect of CPs.

See the info at SkinBiology.com.

She wrote the start of sagging skin. I take from that statement, she is seeing a slight shift with her skin. I use Renova ( wished, I had started 15 years ago ), because it promotes cell turnover and rebuilding of collagen. Collagen is what keeps the skin firm. Once, you experience the loss of collagen, your skin will eventually start to sag. I don't know your age, but collagen starts to decrease after the age of 35. You really have to stay ahead of the game. Personally, I would go with a product that gives a long term effect. I've never had much use for quick fixes. Go to SkinStore or DermStore and ask a rep. for suggestions.

nothing is really going to help you. they may claim to, but nothing really will.

Not everyone will get the same results with any skin care line. In my experience, with the beginning stages of loss of firmness, the chestnut line from wei east works for me. I was thinking about trying the firmalift as well, applying before my chestnut cream I would try different products before I had plastic surgery~~at least with the Q you can try them for a month and get a refund if you aren't happy with it~~ serious kin care has a nice line just for loss of fimness, good luck :-) cali

OP I'm sorry there is no "magic" cream for sagging skin, otherwise, we'd all look as firm as 20 yr olds.

The underlying muscles is what causes the sagging (dang gravity) and there is no cream to tighten muscles under the skin, only plastic surgery. {#emotions_dlg.sad}

I found this article to be an interesting read.

www.skinhelp.co.uk and keyword Sagging Skin in the search box ( click ). It will pull up the information.

Here;'s what one of the doctors I work for says about wrinkles:makes sense to me.

Facial exercises certainly have proponents — including the television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz and even the late Jack LaLanne — but not everyone in the face field is convinced.

The exercise approach has two major strikes against it, says Dr. Francis Papay, chairman of the Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. For one thing, he says, there have never been any studies showing that facial exercises have any benefits. But the bigger problem, to his mind, is that the claims made for facial exercises don't make sense.

According to Papay, heavily used face muscles are a cause of wrinkles such as crow's-feet and frown lines, not a remedy. If someone has suffered a stroke that paralyzes half of the face, he says, the paralyzed side tends to look smoother and less wrinkly than the active side. Likewise, he explains, Botox injections work by paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles. "These exercises would have the opposite effect."

Papay also says there's no reason to believe that enhancing blood flow to the face would encourage the buildup of collagen. However, he does believe that certain neck exercises could potentially tone those muscles, which might in turn tighten up the skin along the neck and lower jaw.

I prefer to say my skin has "relaxed", as in it's not "sweating the small stuff" anymore. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

Along the lines of facial exercises....daily Yoga practice can help especially with the neck muscles along with that boost in circulation.

There is actually plenty of documentation for topical peptides being effective in firming the skin. I myself have noticed this whenever I use skincare that is high in peptides

I think exercises and certain ingredients can firm skin, but if there's an actual sag (flap of skin) I don't think that can be transformed into smooth firm skin again, without surgery.

Dr. Denese RX peptide gel. Miracle Worker serum and moisturizer. Follow with a silicone primer. That's what does it for me. Age 66.

What about that Nutone thingamabobber? The item that stimulates the facial muscles but you don't have to scrunch your face in an exercise? I would think that and Retina -A is the best non-surgury option.
