Saggy Skin


Saggy Skin

Saggy skin is a condition where the skin loses its elasticity. A firm skin can stretch and return to its original form easily while saggy skin is the opposite.

What causes it

What causes Saggy Skin?

Collagen and Elastin reduction

Collagen and elastin provide structure to the skin which helps maintain the firmness and elasticity of our skin. As we age, the skin begins to lose its natural collagen and elastin resulting in skin sagging. This process can also be accelerated by sun exposure which contributes to 80% of collagen and elastin reduction.

Loss of fat pads

Fat pads below the skin give each individual their unique facial contour and volume. When there is loss of the fat pads, the skin also loses its support and therefore sags. 

Fat redistribution

While some parts of the face lose their fat pads, other parts gain unwanted fat deposits i.e along the jawline and under the chin. This fat deposition, coupled with the already thin skin, ultimately leads to the formation of jowls and double chin.

To improve sagging skin, our aim of treatment will be on skin tightening and lifting which is achieved by increasing collagen and elastin levels in the skin.

Treatment Options

Dermal filler, also known as liquid facelift can restore volume to sagging skin. It also lifts and contours the face to achieve more definition. The results are immediate with no downtime and effects can last up to 24 months. 

GEM HIFUPro is a non-invasive treatment whereby no needles or injections are involved. It directly delivers heat energy into three layers of the skin including the deep SMAS layer to stimulate more collagen. When new collagen is produced, it tightens and lifts skin for a youthful appearance.

Thread lift is a minimally invasive treatment which tightens and lifts the skin as well as stimulates collagen production. It treats sagging jowls and loose necklines. The threads will be naturally absorbed into the tissue within 6-8 months and produce the firming effect which lasts up to 1 year.
