As we age, our skin gradually loses its elasticity and firmness, which can result in sagging skin on the face. There are several factors that contribute to this process, including:

  1. Loss of collagen and elastin: Collagen and elastin are two proteins that help keep the skin firm and elastic. As we age, our body produces less of these proteins, which can lead to sagging skin.
  2. Gravity: Gravity is constantly pulling on our skin, and over time this can cause the skin to stretch and sag.
  3. Sun damage: Exposure to UV rays from the sun can damage the skin and accelerate the aging process, leading to sagging skin.
  4. Lifestyle factors: Factors such as smoking can contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, which can lead to sagging.
  5. Genetics: Some people may be more prone to sagging skin due to genetic factors.

It's important to take good care of your skin and protect it from the sun to help prevent sagging. A healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine can also help keep the skin looking firm and youthful.

There are several treatments for sagging skin on the face, depending on the severity of the condition and personal preferences. Here are some of the most common options:

Topical creams and serums: There are a variety of creams and serums that can help tighten and firm the skin, such as those containing vitamin C, stem cell derived growth factors, or hyaluronic acid.

Ultherapy: Ultherapy uses Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualisation (MFU-V) to create Thermal Coagulation Points which contract existing collagen and stimulate new collagen- leading to firmer and lifted skin. The Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is targeted for a non surgical facelift.

Radiofrequency Microneedling: Radiofrequency Microneedling systems such as the SecretDUO utilise fine gold plated needles that enter the deeper layer of the skin and emit radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen contraction and production. The second part of the treatment uses a non ablative fractional laser for skin tightening. This treatment is effective in addressing sagging skin of the face, neck, body and limbs.
