Understanding Sagging Skin

Sagging skin is a common issue we'll all face as we age. It's also caused by weightloss & pregnancy. With technology advancing, there are many modalities that we can use to treat this problem.

Causes of Sagging Skin

Whether it be sagging skin on your face like around your eyes or your neck, or maybe on your body like the arms the thighs. It may be caused by the reduction or deterioration of collagen and elastin in the dermis.

Anyone can develop sagging skin as they age, and it is more likely to happen to people who have suddenly lost large amounts of weight, post-pregnancy or even because of a bad skincare routine. Certain medical conditions may also lead to sagging skin.

Common areas where you might see saggy skin include: There are several causes of saggy skin.

They include:


As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and produces less collagen. This makes it more likely to sag.

The extra weight from pregnancy can cause your skin to stretch and sag.

Weight gain:

If you gain a lot of weight, it can cause your skin to stretch and sag. Losing the weight may not completely fix the problem.

Sun damage:

Too much sun exposure can damage your skin and make it more likely to sag.

How to Treat Sagging Skin

The skin sags more deeply in the layers below the surface, including the dermis.

Topical products don't have much of an effect in these areas but there is better hope with technology advancing.

For dramatic results, some people undergo cosmetic surgery, like a face lift or tummy tuck. However, pain and downtime are expected.

Another popular alternative is to get minimally invasive skin tightening procedures that can also effectively tighten sagging skin like RF & HIFU.

These treatments are minimally invasive which means there won't be any slicing, cutting or breaching into the skin.

However, the outcome of minimally invasive treatments is gradual, unlike surgical procedures that instantly tightens and firms skin. It will take some time to see the results, but the good thing about these energy-based treatments is you won't have to worry about pain or recovery, plus you can still get the desirable results you want.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments

Non-invasive treatments suit all skin types and pose no risk of hyperpigmentation with these because energy is targeted deep down into the skin and muscle layers. It's quick and has zero downtime which means you can even do it during your lunch break and get back to your regular activies right after. These procedures last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour max.

These treatments are virtually painless, there may be some modest discomfort for some people but it's completely bearable, some people do not feel anything at all.

There may be side effects like minimal swelling and redness but it's not really something you should worry about because you can just cover it with makeup. It's completely safe becasue these procedures do not physically penetrate into the skin like surgical procedures. You can just return to your regular activities right after.
