Aging & Sagging Skin: What You Need to Know

Sagging skin reflects reduced tautness and resilience, causing it to droop and lose smoothness. Gravity, weakening muscles, and connective tissues contribute to wrinkles and folds. While aging is inevitable, external factors like sun exposure and poor skincare hasten sagging. Combating this involves a healthy lifestyle, skincare routine, and treatments like laser therapy and fillers, depending on preferences.

At Fundamental Aesthetic Medical Clinic, we recognize the yearning for youthful, revitalized skin. Our solutions combat sagging skin, reinstating your vitality and self-assurance.

Causes of Aging and Sagging Skin

Sagging skin is a natural consequence of aging, primarily attributed to the following factors:

  • Loss of Elastin and Collagen: As we age, our skin gradually loses its elasticity and collagen, essential proteins that provide firmness and structure.

  • Gravity's Effect: Over time, gravity exerts its force, causing skin to sag and droop downwards.

  • Sun Exposure: Prolonged sun exposure accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers, contributing to sagging skin.

  • Weight Loss: Rapid weight loss can lead to sagging as the skin doesn't have time to adjust to the new body shape.

  • Environmental Factors: Smoking and other environmental pollutants can further degrade skin's integrity.

What are the different types of Aging and Sagging Skin?

Types of Aging:

  • Intrinsic Aging: Natural, chronological aging influenced by genetic factors and biological processes, leading to gradual skin changes over time.

  • Extrinsic Aging: Premature aging caused by external factors, primarily sun exposure and environmental damage, leading to accelerated skin aging.

Types of Sagging Skin:

  • Facial Sagging: Drooping of facial features, such as cheeks, jowls, and eyelids, due to loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone.

  • Neck Sagging: Sagging and looseness of the skin in the neck area, often resulting in the appearance of "turkey neck."

  • Eyelid Sagging: Also known as ptosis, it refers to the drooping of the upper eyelids, which can affect vision and appearance.

  • Body Sagging: Skin laxity in various body areas, especially after significant weight loss, pregnancy, or aging, leading to sagging in areas like the arms, abdomen, and thighs.

  • Nasolabial Folds: The deep lines or folds that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, often becoming more pronounced with age.

  • Marionette Lines: Lines or wrinkles that form from the corners of the mouth downward, contributing to a downturned expression.

  • Forehead Sagging: Drooping of the forehead and brow area, leading to the appearance of frown lines and a tired look.

  • Hand Sagging: Thinning and sagging of the skin on the back of the hands, often revealing veins and tendons.

  • Cheek Sagging: Sagging of the midface area, contributing to a hollow or sunken appearance.

Treatment Aims for Aging and Sagging Skin

At Fundamental Aesthetic Medical Clinic, our primary goal is to rejuvenate your skin and address sagging through effective, personalized and recommended treatments like:

1) Ultraformer HIFU Facelift

Our recommended starting point is the Ultraformer 3 High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) facelift. This non-invasive treatment utilizes ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin. By targeting different layers of the face—using depths of 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 2.0mm—we stimulate collagen production, resulting in improved firmness and elasticity. Ultraformer 3 HIFU facelift is known for its minimal downtime, effectiveness, and natural-looking results.

2) Fillers for Facelifting

For a comprehensive approach, we employ the use of dermal fillers strategically placed to restore volume and lift sagging areas of the face. Through the use of advanced techniques like MD codes, our skilled practitioners inject fillers at precise locations to achieve a natural and lifted appearance.

At Fundamental Aesthetic Medical Clinic, we understand that each individual's needs are unique. Our experienced team will tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your goals and desires. Whether you choose Ultraformer 3 HIFU facelift, fillers, or a combination of both, our focus is on achieving a more youthful and radiant version of you through various treatments.
