We all want to look our best, but sometimes we can’t help the effects of aging. If you’re noticing sagging skin around your face and neck, don’t worry! There are treatments for this that can help eliminate wrinkles or give you a more youthful appearance. In this article, we’ll be discussing these sagging skin treatments and how they work so that people who are interested in improving their appearance can make an informed decision about whether it’s right for them. Here is what you need to know about sagging skin treatments:
What Causes Sagging Skin?
There are two main reasons why skin sags:
- Fading Natural Support Structures: As you age, some of the connective tissues that support your skin begin to break down and disappear. This is because as we get older, our collagen production for the most part stops and we start losing elasticity in our skin as well. This leads to less tissue holding up your skin, which is what causes it to sag.
- Fat Loss: Facial fat loss can also be a reason for sagging, where there is not enough fat on the face to keep up with its structural needs and therefore begins falling away at an increased speed than normal aging alone would account for.
How Does It Affect the Body?
Sagging skin can become a source of insecurity and can lead to feelings of being unattractive, resulting in people avoiding doing things they would have otherwise enjoyed or even been confident about. This means that sagging skin affects your overall well-being by affecting your ability to take part in public activities without feeling self-conscious which also prevents you from doing enjoyable things like having fun with friends, looking for love, exercising and other social interactions.
Why is It Important to Treat?
Sagging Skin Can Result In Psychological Issues: There has recently been more research into the psychological effects on aging which shows that sagging skin can result in a number of issues such as low self-esteem that may affect your daily functioning.
Mental: There is evidence that saggy skin can lead to mental health issues such as more anxiety, stress, and depression which are problems that can take their toll on your everyday life.
Social: Not only does the anxiety from saggy skin affect how you deal with people on a personal level, but it also affects how you deal with other people on a professional level such as co-workers at work or clients during social events which could cause you to miss opportunities because of shame from your appearance , leading to lower self-confidence and more anxiety.
What are Non-Surgical Treatments for Sagging Skin?
There are a number of non-surgical treatments that can be used to treat your sagging skin.
BTX treatment for sagging skin is a relatively new non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. It uses a purified form of botulinum toxin type A which is administered by an experienced doctor and treats sagging skin from the inside out. This allows people who have extremely sagging or droopy areas to regain their natural structure without undergoing invasive surgeries which can be risky or expensive.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
HIFU is a non-surgical procedure that uses sound waves to tighten skin and treat wrinkles. It has been used for a variety of anti-aging and skin-tightening treatments, but is most commonly known as the key part of non-surgical facelift procedures.
It works by sending focused sound waves into the deep layers of the dermis (the layer beneath your surface skin) in order to stimulate collagen production. Since higher levels of collagen help tighten your skin, it can reduce lines and wrinkles around the face and neck which is ideal for saggy areas that you want to fix so that you look younger.
Dermal fillers are another non-surgical option to treat sagging skin. They use a hyaluronic acid solution that is injected into the area desired and it acts as a support structure for the skin in order to give it back its elasticity. This can be useful for supporting areas like your cheeks, lips, and beneath your eyes which sag with age. With the right treatment you can improve the appearance of those areas without having to undergo surgical procedures such as facelifts or neck lifts.
