As we grow older, our production of collagen and elastin reduces producing loss of firmness or sagging skin. Loose or saggy skin around the face, neck, and chest is a common change during the ageing process Science tells us, that ageing is the main reason for the loss of facial volume. However, it can also occur due to extreme weight loss. This can cause some people to feel not quite as self-assured or comfortable with their appearance. At Dermalogic Aesthetics, we work on tackling loss of volume or sagging skin with precision.
SYMPTOMS OF VOLUME LOSS
None of us can stop the process of aging; sagging skin and loss of firmness are natural part of the ageing process. Over time, the skin’s underlying structure breaks down, robbing the skin of its definition, youthful plumpness and resilience. Skin also renews itself much more slowly than it once did. Due to these factors the skin starts to sag and hang. Some doctors say that once skin starts to slacken, pores often look larger, as if they’ve been stretched out of shape.
However, there are treatments available at Dermalogic Aesthetics that can help in regaining the lost volume of our skin.
CAUSES OF VOLUME LOSS
- The most common cause of sagging skin is the natural effect of ageing. Receding of bone mass and deep fat atrophy with age is a major to this process. Changes in the cheekbone and jaw line structure can result in the loss of facial volume.
- Extreme dieting and exercising that leads to drastic loss in the weight of a person in a short period of time.
- Extreme exposure to UV rays from sun can help in the process of aging by damaging skin cells.
- Reduced collagen and elastin production.
