WHY DOES SKIN SAG?
Skin sagging occurs due to a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors:
LOSS OF COLLAGEN & ELASTIN
Collagen and elastin are proteins responsible for maintaining the skin's structure, elasticity, and firmness. As we age, our bodies produce less of these proteins, leading to a breakdown in the skin's support system. The reduced levels of collagen and elastin contribute to the loss of skin elasticity and the formation of wrinkles and sagging.
WEAKENING OF UNDERLYING TISSUES
The underlying fat and muscle tissues that provide support to the skin can weaken and shrink over time. When these tissues lose their strength and volume, the skin above them may begin to droop and sag.
SUN EXPOSURE & PHOTOAGING
Prolonged and unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. This process, known as photoaging, can lead to increased skin sagging.
Gravity exerts a constant downward pull on our bodies. As we age, the skin's natural ability to resist gravity weakens. Over time, the combination of gravity and the loss of skin elasticity can cause the skin to sag, especially in areas that are more prone to gravitational effects, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck.
