Sagging skin is a condition in which your skin looks loose. It does not remain tight as in the young age. It’s a normal part of aging and affects everyone with time. Sagging skin may cause jowl fullness over the mid-jawline as the lower cheek fat descends to increase volume where you don’t want it, like in the jowl area, in the neck and above the nasolabial folds.
Skin that has lost its spring isn’t the result of just one cause. Several factors are likely responsible for making your once supple skin appear tired and droopy.
The most common cause of sagging skin is aging. As you age, your skin loses the collagen and elastin, your skin’s supportive connective tissue, that make it look soft, plump and youthful. In addition, facial muscles can weaken with age, which takes a toll too. Getting older means more exposure to the dreaded pull of gravity; which we know causes skin to sag a little further down with each passing day.
Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity. The sun’s powerful rays damage skin cells which, over time, this can increase the effects of aging . It’s a double-edged sword — all that ultraviolet radiation you soaked up while getting the perfect tan was also breaking down your collagen and elastin, which can lead to saggy skin and wrinkles
There are several medical (topical medicines and creams) and many invasive techniques available for ameliorating wrinkles. They are all effective to the degree that
- They change the nature of aging collagen
- They stretch the skin
- Fill in the depressions in the skin.
- They paralyze muscles that cause the skin to crease. They include both medical and surgical methods.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.Laser skin tightening is an FDA approved method for the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. While laser skin tightening results may not be as dramatic as those of a face lift, patients enjoy moderate results with no downtime. An added benefit of laser skin tightening is that it is safe and effective for restoring a more firm, youthful appearance to skin all over the body.
Anyone considering any of the cosmetic procedures should be sure to consult doctors who have experience in one or several of these techniques. Patients should fully inform themselves about the risks and potential benefits of the procedure they are considering before going forward.
