Apart from wrinkles, a loss of elasticity is another sign of ageing skin. With age, your skin looses its tautness and becomes loose. With ageing, the combined effects of our genetics, sun damage and lifestyle choices affect the elasticity of our skin. Skin sags primarily due to the loss of volume and also because of a decrease in collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of the skin and the absence of these prevents the skin from going back to its original shape after stretching or contracting. The face for instance, will appear sunken and less full around the eyes and cheeks. Hanging skin around the jowl and neck, as well as an increased looseness around the nose and corners of the mouth are typical in ageing skin. With the right laser, these effects can be largely reversed.
CPT is Comfort Pulse TechnologyTM. At its core, Thermage® CPT builds on the proven efficacy of the Thermage platform - the only device to use monopolar, capacitively coupled radiofrequency energy for the treatment of wrinkles.
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume.
A thread facelift is a safe, convenient facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach.
Botox Cosmetic is no longer just used as an anti-ageing solution. It is also used to enhance certain facial features for people of any age group. It is also the perfect solution for excessive sweating.
Skin that has lost its spring isn't the result of just one cause. Several factors are likely responsible for making your once supple skin appear tired and droopy.
The most common cause of sagging skin is aging. As you age, your skin loses the collagen and elastin, your skin's supportive connective tissue, that make it look soft, plump and youthful. In addition, facial muscles can weaken with age, which takes a toll too. Getting older means more exposure to the dreaded pull of gravity; which we know causes skin to sag a little further down with each passing day.
