Saggy Skin and How to Treat it

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.

  1. 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.
