Sagging skin can be treated and improved in a variety of ways. When the tissues of the face age, there are changes in the bone structure, the muscle component, the fat compartments and the skin of the face. When the underlying structures beneath the skin age, this too influences the skin- the very foundation the skin sits on loses shape or volume and as a result the skin starts to sag.
In addition, the skin itself changes with time. Loss of volume in the skin itself is accompanied by changes in skin texture, colour, elasticity and overall appearance of the face. Sagging skin, along with the downward movement of fat pads beneath the skin surface, enlarged pores and several other skin changes, are all attributable to ageing. As we age, the body slows down the production of elastin and collagen, responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
There are several factors that contribute to the process of ageing in the skin that results in sagging skin, aside from the passing of time. As time passes, the body and the skin undergo changes. Lifestyle factors and the genetic composition of your body play a key role in your ageing process in all tissues and in your skin. These factors are all interconnected:
- What you eat and drink
- How you exercise
- The amount of quality sleep you get
- Stress in your life and how you deal with it
- Exposure to toxins in the atmosphere
- Cigarette smoking
- Alcohol consumption
- Exposure to sunlight
- Chronic illness
Sagging skin can be treated and improved in a variety of ways, with an emphasis on improving blood circulation, and the stimulation of collagen and elastin production, so helping to restore lost volume. The most effective treatments here are those that involve Fat Transfer. This procedure enhances volume as well as the sparks the regeneration of tissues including blood vessels and collagen through the stem cell components of fat

Most soft Tissue Fillers are either Hyaluronic Acid, or collagen based. Both are naturally occurring substances in the body. Hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance, is injected below the skin in areas that need plumping and filling, to temporarily reverse sagging, hollowness…
Muscle relaxing injectable
The treatment involves the injection of Muscle Relaxing Injectable (or a similar neuromodulator products) into specific muscles with a very fine needle, which relaxes the contraction response of the muscles by blocking certain nerve impulses temporarily.
Penetrating several layers of skin, using a solution called Phenol, this treatment is extremely effective for regeneration of the skin structure. It provides a total rejuvenation effect, which can help you to look up to ten years younger.
The name is quite descriptive of the procedure– layers of skin are gently peeled away by a solution, usually water-soluble glycolic acid (obtained from fermented sugar) or salicylic acid (from willow bark), applied topically to reveal smoother, healthier and more even toned skin.
This treatment renews the skin by lifting dead cells from the skin surface and stimulating the metabolism of the cells beneath. A series of TCA (trichloracetic acid – made by chlorinating acetic acid) peels can effectively improve the appearance of superficial lines and uneven…
