What Causes Sagging Skin?

Sagging skin is one of the most common signs of ageing. It is caused by several changes that happen to the skin as we grow older, but these problems can be tackled by treatments such as the thread lift.

The Causes of Sagging Skin

As skin ages, it undergoes many changes that affect its appearance. One of these is a reduction in the amount of collagen and elastin being produced. These substances are responsible for giving the skin its elasticity, so without them it begins to sag and wrinkle. Another cause of sagging is the wear and tear done to your muscles and connective tissues. Over time, the muscles that shape your expressions and the connective tissues that underlie the skin begin to weaken and deteriorate. They become longer and slacker, which causes the skin they support to sag. Another change also takes place under the skin. The cushion of fat under the skin becomes thinner, leaving the skin above to sag.

Treatments for Sagging Skin

Sagging is a normal part of the ageing process, but that doesn’t mean that you have to put up with it. Various treatment options are available to give sagging skin a lift, ranging from anti-ageing creams to cosmetic surgery. One option that can be very effective is the thread lift, which is a minimally invasive procedure that can counteract the causes of sagging.

During a thread lift, thin strands of material are inserted into your skin at carefully chosen points. The threads are anchored to your skin and then tightened to lift the sagging skin and fat. The threads are made from materials that encourage your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which can help to rejuvenate the targeted areas. The threads also provide support where the skin has been left to sag by weakened muscles and connective tissues, tightening the skin and giving it a lift.
