Youthful skin is full, firm and bounces back to its usual form.
When a person gets older the skin loses these abilities as collagen and elastin declines from the skin’s inner structure. One of the effects that this process leads to is the development of sagging skin. This condition is most often seen to affect the eyelids, jawline, chin and neck and can contribute to an appearance that looks aged and tired.
The ageing process and sagging skin will affect everyone in some form or another. The internal changes will often be starting their course from the time a person reaches their mid 20’s, showing the visible signs a decade or so later.
The way in which the signs of ageing will unfold are often controlled by genetics, with certain lifestyle habits and environmental factors speeding the process up.
Frequent sun exposure, consuming alcohol and smoking can aid the ageing process in breaking down collagen and elastin fibres within the skin, causing a weakened structure that also sees a decline in healthy hydration.
These effects can also be accompanied by gravity, which works over time to tug on already weakened skin and create the droopy look. When considering a treatment for sagging skin, early intervention is always more effective. The results can not only pause the effects of ageing, but can also prevent the condition from becoming too severe.
Dermal fillers around the cheeks and jawline or wrinkle-relaxing treatments to the neck can help reduce the appearance of a sagging jaw. A chemical peel by AlumierMD at The Bloom Clinic has the ability to rejuvenate the skin by resurfacing the top layers to stimulate and reproduce new collagen fibres, encouraging a stronger structure.
Through a series of Dermalux LED facials, a variety of ageing related issues can be improved (including sagging skin) as the deeper layers undergo rejuvenation and repair. One of the benefits of improving the structure of the skin is the lifting and tightening effect it can have on the exterior, reviving a youthful look.Book a Consultation
