Things You Need to Know About Saggy Skin & It's Treatment in Singapore

How to treat sagging skin and cheeks in Singapore.

Skin sagging, as much as we hate it, affects all of us. You may have noticed the folds of your face such as the laugh lines looking more prominent, the shape of your face looking more squarish and bottom-heavy. Your skin may also feel looser to touch, not as firm and taut as before. These are all signs that your facial skin is starting to sag.

Why Does Our Skin Sag?

1. Loss of Collagen and Elastin  

Collagen and Elastin are the building blocks of youthful, elastic skin. They form the mesh that supports the skin, resisting the effect of gravity allowing it to stay tight and firm. Ageing and sun exposure causes our skin to lose collagen and elastin, which leads to sagging as this supportive mesh becomes looser. Genetics also play a role as our skin is programmed to age differently from person to person. In addition, the production of new collagen and elastin reduces with age, hence stimulation of its production is a cornerstone of saggy skin treatments.

2. Loss of Volume 

Our facial skeleton and deep fat pads prop up the overlying skin and are very important for a youthful appearance. While most people realize that skin becomes looser with age, it is less common knowledge that the structures propping up the skin also shrinks with age, exacerbating the saggy appearance.

What are the treatments for saggy skin?

There are various effective treatments to address saggy skin. Here are some popular options.

Fotona 5D/6D Laser Lift

Fotona laser technology utilises a combination of laser wavelengths to target different layers of the skin. The 5D and 6D laser lifts focus on skin tightening, improving elasticity and promoting collagen production.

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound)

HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin, generating heat and stimulating collagen production. It is known for its ability to lift and tighten sagging skin.

Thermage FLX

Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency technology to deliver heat to the deeper layers of skin, promoting collagen contraction and production. It is particularly effective for treating sagging skin on the face and body.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy employs ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It targets the foundational layers, stimulating collagen production and resulting in a more lifted and youthful appearance.

Sylfirm X

RF Gold Microneedling uses the combined action of microneedling and bipolar radiofrequency treatments to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin, increase blood supply to the skin, and contraction of the skin’s fibroseptal network. This results in the overall effect of skin tightening and lifting.
