What is sagging skin?
A young woman usually has a face shaped like an inverted triangle. The chin is the point and the top of the cheekbones are the base. But over time, the contours of your face become less defined and the triangle is reversed. This is known as skin sagging.
The skin is made up of a multitude of cells immersed in a matrix of collagen and elastin fibres. Collagen is produced by fibroblasts. It gives the skin its density. As for elastin, it is also produced by fibroblasts and gives the skin its elasticity and tone.
To begin with, all these cells are constantly being renewed. They are very good quality and fulfil their role well. However, over time they become fragile and their renewal slows down, reducing the skin’s firmness and contributing to sagging skin.
