How to Treat Sagging Skin?

Sagging Skin Treatments

If you’ve spent hours at the gym attempting to lose weight, you’re definitely aware that sagging skin is a common side effect. Saggy skin on the body and face is frequently related to fat loss and loss of skin integrity.

Although there is no easy at-home remedy for sagging skin, several skin-tightening methods are available, from over-the-counter remedies to surgical enhancements.

What causes saggy skin?

Stretched, firm skin quickly returns to its original shape. When skin loses its elasticity on the knees, sagging results. Skin laxity can occur just about anywhere. Typical places to find sagging skin:

  • Eyelids
  • Jowls
  • Chin
  • Throat
  • Apex, or upper arms
  • Stomach

Drooping skin can result from a number of different conditions. Those things are:

·        Weight loss:

Excess weight can weaken the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers when carried over an extended length of time. As a result, the skin loses some of its elasticity and takes longer to return to its previous state after weight loss.

Excess skin laxity is a real possibility after losing 100 pounds or more.

Rapid weight loss, such as loose tummy skin and loose underarms that are achieved by bariatric surgery, increases the likelihood of skin laxity. These weight loss methods often leave patients with excessive amounts of hanging, sagging skin.

Your age at the point of weight loss could play a difference in how sagging your skin gets because younger skin rebounds more readily.

·        Aging:

Elastin and collagen, two proteins made in the dermis, are depleted with aging.

Elastin, as its name implies, contributes to the flexibility of the skin. In addition, to tighten skin, it also gives you skin that can “spring back” after being stretched.

Fibroblasts are cells that create collagen. Collagen is responsible for skin that is smooth and firm. Since collagen is made up of tightly packed fibers, it aids in keeping the skin’s structure and stiffness.

As we become older, we produce less elastin and collagen. Similarly, these two proteins are susceptible to deterioration from environmental influences like:

  • UV Radiation
  • Environmental hazards such as secondhand smoking
  • Elements related to one’s way of life, including bad eating habits and excessive alcohol consumption

Treatment options for saggy skin:

There are solutions available if sagging skin is a source of self-consciousness for you.

Sagging skin might be either mild or rather severe. When weighing your treatment options, keep in mind the following:

  • Those parts of the body have begun to sag.
  • How much sagging there is.

To reduce minor sagging:

There are solutions you can test on your body and face at home if you have mild sagging or if you are content with more modest effects. The following are some of them:

Exercise:

In order to combat the sagging skin that can result from pregnancy or even mild weight reduction, regular physical activity is recommended.

Minor skin drooping can be concealed with the help of any physical activity that increases muscle mass and tightens muscles. To give only one illustration:

  • Weight lifting or resistance training: Building muscle mass is facilitated by resistance training with weights, machines, and resistance bands.
  • Pilates: Pilates, often called Contrology, is an exercise method that focuses on strengthening and toning the abdominal muscles, the hamstrings, the quadriceps, and the rotator cuffs.
  • Facial exercise: Facial exercises have been shown by a small but reliable body of research to be effective in tightening lax skin around the turkey’s neck and face, specifically the jowls, chin, and throat.

Yoga practitioners attest that certain poses can tighten lax facial skin. Simhasana is an excellent yoga posture to try in this situation (Lion Pose).

Home Treatment Options

A number of things can contribute to skin sagging. Age and weight reduction are two of these factors. Although it has no health risks, individuals may find its appearance unappealing.

A variety of methods may improve the appearance of drooping skin. The following may help with mild to moderate sagging:

  • Rising activity levels
  • Fixing flabby skin by utilizing firming creams
  • Skin massaging
  • Including Dietary Supplements

Here, we also evaluate the non surgical procedures that can grant great improvements to restore skin elasticity and collagen.

This treatment is the go to solution with definitive results and we recommend it for specific target zones such as the jowls, double chin and nasolabial folds. Another specific area that it can target is that of protruding eyebags, where it can grant long term results of eyebag reduction.

Surgical radiofrequency used during the procedure stimulates collagen and elastin production. It also generates a long-term effect to restructure the facial fat regions which allow for a V shaped facelift result.
