SAGGING SKIN

There are a variety of internal and external factors that can cause loose skin. Internal factors can include genetics, significant weight loss, smoking, and stress. External factors can include accumulated sun damage and aggressive weather conditions that damage the skin.Skin loosening that progresses naturally with age is mostly due to a breakdown of collagen, elastin, and moisture levels. Harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun accelerate this process and dehydrate the skin.
What causes loose skin?
Healthy, firm skin can snap into place easily after being stretched. This is due to the elastin fibres in the dermal layer of our skin. When the skin’s elastin breaks down, the skin is less elastic resulting in a looser or sagging appearance. This effect can happen almost anywhere on the body. Common areas where you might see this include:
– Eyelids
– Jowls
– Chin
– Throat
– Abdomen (Especially after pregnancy)
– Upper arms
At Dermis Advanced Skin Care, we offer various skin tightening and toning options that target loosened skin by shrinking fat cells while simultaneously tightening and toning the skin.
