Facial Sagging treatment
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.
