CAUSES & SYMPTOMS

Sagging skin and loss of definition can appear anywhere on the body and face, most common areas are the neck, arms and abdomen. One of the main causes of sagging skin is age. As we age, our skin tends to lose collagen and elastin, the supportive connective tissue that makes it look firm, plump and youthful.

This process can results in sagging skin around the face, neck and body. In addition to this, facial muscles can weaken with age and eventually cause a drop. Sun exposure can also reduce skin's elasticity. Finally, sudden weight loss, especially large amounts of weight over a short period of time, can also cause the skin to sag dramatically.

HOW TO TREAT SAGGING SKIN?

How to tighten skin is one of the most common questions we are asked in the clinics. We have many rejuvenating skin treatments that can help to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and lift skin on both face and body.

Frequently asked questions

What should you avoid?

Although there isn’t much you can do to prevent the development of sagging skin, there are a few preventative measures that might be able slow down the process.  It is important to protect your skin against damage from the sun by applying SPF daily. A healthy lifestyle and a well-balanced diet can play a big part in your skins overall health. Incorporating the right nutrients into your diet and avoiding extreme diets that result in rapid weight loss can also help in minimising sagging skin.

What causes sagging skin?

One of the most common causes of sagging skin is ageing. Unfortunately, as we age our skin naturally loses its strength and elasticity as our collagen levels gradually drop, resulting in sagging skin around the face, neck and body. As well as this, facial muscles can weaken with age, resulting in loose skin. Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity. Over time, the sun’s powerful rays can damage skin cells which eventually can increase the effects of ageing. Apart from ageing and sun damage, weight loss, especially the loss of large amounts of weight over a short period of time can cause the skin to sag.

Who is affected?

Anyone can be affected by sagging skin. However, it is more common with individuals who have gone through extreme weight loss or women post pregnancy.
