What Causes Saggy Skin ?

  • Sagging skin is caused by loss of collagen, ageing, sun damage and loss of facial fat. The most common cause of sagging skin however is ageing. As we age our skin loses collagen and elastin which are the main structural proteins in the skin that give it elasticity and firmness.
  • Additionally as we age our facial muscles which support our underlying tissue can also weaken and further sag our tissue.
  • Another common cause of sagging skin is sun damage. Over years harmful  UV rays can damage our skin cells and increase the effects of ageing particularly aggravating loss of collagen.
  • Smoking also causes sagging skin by reducing blood flow and displacing the oxygen in your skin. Smoking also depletes important nutrient such as Vitamin C which play an important role in skin healing.

What Causes Loose Saggy Skin Under The Chin ?

Sagging skin under the chin is caused by ageing, loss of collagen and weakening of facial and neck muscles. As we age our skin loses elasticity and the muscles around our face and neck lose strength resulting in drawn down and sagging tissue.

Many men and woman also tend to get saggy skin under the chin area after rapid weight loss and in some cases require surgery to correct the chin area if non surgical treatments can not help. Cosmetic facial clinics can help firm chin skin without surgery in many cases and visiting a cosmetic doctor who is highly experienced in non surgical cosmetic procedures could help you avoid many of the risks associated with plastic surgery.

What causes the jowls?

Jowls are caused by a loss of the skins tightness and elasticity due to loss of collagen, a key protein in the skin. Jowls can also be reversed without surgery using thread lifting. As we age and collagen is gradually lost the skin can lose its strength and begin to sag. Although ageing is the most common cause of jowls, smoking and sun damage can increase the loss of collagen and precipitate sagging skin. There is also an element of genetics that can play a role in jowl formation. If you naturally have less collagen in your skin and your skin is thinner and less tight you may be predisposed to developing jowls. If this is happening to you, talk to a jowl lift Sydney cosmetic clinic or cosmetic doctors that specialises in non surgical treatments and they will be able to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Weight loss can also cause jowls as our skin stretches with weight gain and there can sometimes be excess skin once this weight is lost. Smoking causes jowls by increasing collagen loss and consequently decreasing the strength, tightness and elasticity of our skin. Sun damage also causes jowls as collagen is gradually lost when the skin is exposed to harmful UV rays over time. Facial muscle weakening can also contribute to jowls. As our muscles support our tissues as we age their strength may decrease and lead to drawn down tissue. If this happens in the muscles around our mouth and neck then this can also lead to jowls.
