A sagging face is one of the most prominent signs of ageing. Typical signs are lowered cheek muscle pads, jowls, and visible neck bands; in simple terms, things head south!

Facial sagging is due to a number of reasons. Firstly and primarily it is a natural consequence of the ageing process. As we age the components (elastin and collagen) that are responsible for maintaining elasticity, rebound and firmness starts to break down. This results in looser skin, fine lines and eventually deep wrinkles.

Other factors such as sun damage, weight loss, smoking, over exercise and a poor diet can speed the whole process up and promote early ageing of the skin. Lifestyle habits, such as frequently looking down when using computers or phones are a modern day factor, as are our increased stress loads.

To add to the problem, the muscles in our face are also weakened by age so the support that they give already loosening skin is reduced and increased sagging is apparent.

Recommended Treatments for Facial Sagging:

The good news is that there are now a number of non-surgical treatments that provide outstanding results for signs of facial sagging. Here at The Cooden Medical Group we recommend the following.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be used to great effect, to tighten sagging skin concerns and improve the overall texture. We recommend the following medium depth peel treatments:

  • TCA peel
  • Obagi Blue Peel®
  • Retinol peel

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers will offer immediate results with minimal downtime, providing relief from most signs of facial sagging. When used in the cheek area they create the impression of lifted cheek pad with an all over lifted effect of the face.

Dermaroller and Dermapen™

Dermaroller and Dermapen™ are microneedling treatments that use small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin, encouraging the body to produce collagen for an almost immediate plumping effect. These treatments can also help tackle other forms of skin ageing.

Mesotherapy is a highly effective rejuvenating treatment, used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, abdomen, arms and hands. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-ageing regimens, including Botox®, laser resurfacing, chemical peels or topical treatments.

  • What causes skin to sag?

    As we age, we produce less of our own collagen and elastin- these are important components of our skin’s connective tissues. And unlike the muscles in our body that are attached to bone, the tiny muscles in our face are not- they are attached to our skin- so when our skin starts to lose its strength and elasticity, our face, muscles and skin unfortunately start to sag.

    What can I do to prevent sagging skin?

    Even with a healthy lifestyle and minimal sun exposure, our skin gradually loses its firm, youthful look. This is to do with gravity – it is a natural process.
