Treating sagging skin

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.

The main causes:

1

Genes

Genes are the main cause of sagging skin. Skin ages more quickly in some people than in others. Also, hormone variations, particularly in women during the menopause, can speed up the appearance of sagging skin.
2

The sun

The sun is also an aggravating factor in skin sagging. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays prematurely reduces the production of collagen and elastin. The sun's rays also contribute to dryness and dehydration of the skin, leading to ageing and facial sagging.
3

Smoking

Tobacco and the substances contained in cigarettes are responsible for destroying the skin's elastic fibres. So, smoking is another aggravating factor in facial sagging.
