February 21, 2023 2 min read

If you're tired of looking in the mirror and seeing sagging skin, you're not alone. Here at our medspa, we understand this frustration, which is why we offer highly effective solutions to help you restore a more youthful look. In this article, we'll look at the causes of sagging skin, as well as the treatments we offer to give you a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.

Causes of Sagging Skin

Sagging skin can be caused by a variety of factors. Gravity is a natural factor that causes our skin to sag over time, but there are other contributors, including sun exposure, smoking, weight changes, and genetics.

Sun exposure: Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of sagging skin. When exposed over time to UV rays, the collagen and elastin in your skin break down, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Smoking: Smoking cigarettes causes the collagen and elastin in your skin to breakdown and reduce significantly, resulting in sagging skin. Weight fluctuations: Weight loss (or gain) can also cause your skin to sag as the skin stretches or shrinks. The skin doesn’t always have time (or the right ingredients!) to bounce back after significant weight fluctuations. Genetics: Genetics can also play a part in how quickly the aging effects of sagging skin set in. If there’s a history of premature aging in your family, you may find that your skin begins to sag sooner than others.

Solutions for Sagging Skin

Thankfully, sagging skin is a very treatable problem. Here at Blended Skin, we offer a variety of treatments to lift and restore your sagging skin.

Skin Tightening Treatments: Today’s noninvasive skin tightening treatments utilize ultrasound energy, radio frequency energy, and even light energy to help tighten and firm skin. Body Contouring Treatments: If you’re dealing with stubborn areas of fat and sagging skin due to weight fluctuations, body contouring treatments can help you reach your goal of tighter, firmer skin. Facelift: We also offer the most effective way to treat severe or significant sagging skin—a facelift. During this advanced procedure, excess skin is removed, fat is repositioned, and underlying muscle tissue is also adjusted to redefine your facial proportions.
