Loss of Firmness/Sagging Skin

Collagen and elastin are the naturally-occurring proteins found in the skin’s connective tissues, responsible for maintaining its firmness and elasticity. As we grow older collagen and elastin production decreases and we notice sagging, decrease in volume, lines and wrinkles.

Sagging skin and loss of firmness occurs due to lower collagen and elastin production as we age. It can also occur due to extreme weight loss. Skin tightening treatments at Aesthetics Lab work on problem areas, tackling loose and sagging skin with precision.

Symptoms of Loss of Firmness/Sagging Skin

Sagging skin and loss of firmness are natural part of the ageing process.

The appearance of ageing can manifest in several ways in the neck and lower face:

  • Loose skin: Commonly known as “turkey neck,” this occurs as skin loses its elasticity and in cases where individuals have lost a great deal of weight. Sagging is usually most apparent along the jowl line.
  • Fat: A pool of fat under the chin also can cause sagging and give the appearance of bloating.
  • Banding: As the muscles of the neck weaken with age, the vertical cords of tissue begin to stretch out of shape, causing unsightly bands around the neck.

Causes of Loss of Firmness/Sagging Skin

  • Reduced collagen and elastin production
  • Loss of fat in the face
  • Natural effect of gravity, over time
  • Damaged skin cells due to sun exposure
