Saggy Skin: Why You Have It and What to Do About It?

Saggy Skin Why You Have It and What to Do About It

When you look in the mirror, do you find yourself gently pulling back the skin on your face and wishing it would stay there? The most dramatic results will come from a surgical lift, like a facelift or eyelid surgery. 

However, there are many other ways to tighten your skin. These alternatives cost less money and have less downtime. If you’re finding the best solution, Ageless Beauty Center can help. 

Today we’re discussing your saggy skin problem and the actions you can take. Take a look at this post and see how every treatment works! 

Your Saggy Skin Problem 

Firm skin is easy to stretch and put back in place. Skin starts to sag when it can’t do this. Almost any part of the body can have loose and saggy skin. Sagging skin is expected in the eyelids, cheeks, chin, throat, arms, and stomach.

There are many reasons why skin sags. Two of the most usual scenarios are:


Elastin and collagen, two essential proteins made in the dermis, are lost as skin ages. Elastin makes skin stretchy, which is what the word means. It makes the skin firm and able to bounce back after being stretched.

Fibroblasts are what make collagen. Collagen is what makes skin tight and firm. Collagen is made up of tightly wound fibers that help keep the structure and firmness of the skin.

As people get older, they make less elastin and collagen. Over time, these two proteins can also become less valuable because of things like:

UV exposure, environmental pollution, like cigarette smoke, and some lifestyle choices, like not getting enough to eat and drinking too much alcohol.

Skin can age faster if you spend too much time in the sun and don’t care for your skin or health. This can make your skin look older than it is.

Weight Loss

When you carry extra weight for a long time, collagen and elastin fibers in your skin can get damaged. When you lose weight, this makes it harder for your skin to snap back into shape.

If you lose 100 pounds or more, or a lot of weight, you may end up with a lot of sagging skin. When you also lose weight quickly, like, after bariatric surgery, your skin is more likely to fade. 

Some people who use these methods to lose weight end up with a lot of loose skin that hangs off their bodies.

Your age at losing weight can also affect how saggy your skin gets since younger skin bounces back more quickly.

Treatment For Saggy Skin

There are things you can do to get rid of or lessen an area of sagging skin if it bothers you. The amount of sagging skin can range from very little to a lot. 

When choosing a treatment, remember where the sagging happens on the body, how much sagging there is, and how you feel about it.

Juvederm Voluma

For saggy skin, Ageless Beauty Center recommends that Juvederm Voluma might be a key. It is a dermal filler that was made to treat signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume, and sagging skin. 

This dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which causes collagen stronger. This ingredient helps make up for lost volume in the areas where the injections were made. 

This filler is perfect for restoring volume to sunken cheeks to make them look fuller and more defined. Besides, all dermal fillers in the Juvederm line are made with hyaluronic acid. 

Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant found in the skin, eyes, and synovial fluid of joints. The Juvederm line is thought to be one of the safest dermal fillers because of this. 

When you get an injection of hyaluronic acid, the molecules fill your cheeks and give your face more volume. HA also helps to increase the production of collagen, which helps keep the structure and elasticity of your skin.


Bellafill is an FDA-approved dermal filler that lasts for a long time. It has tiny beads made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and collagen, a natural part of the skin.

Bellafill was once called Artefill. In 2006, the FDA gave it the approval to treat nasolabial folds. In 2014, the FDA said it could treat some kinds of moderate to severe acne scars. 

Bellafill can be used in ways not on the label, just like many other fillers and drugs. It is used to fill in different lines and wrinkles and to make the nose, chin, and cheeks look bigger without surgery.

The treatment is made of bovine collagen and PMMA, a thermoplastic that can be cleaned up to make tiny balls called microspheres. Each injection also has a small amount of the painkiller lidocaine to make you feel better.

When Bellafill is injected into your skin, your body absorbs the collagen, but the microspheres stay in place. It keeps you supported even after your body has used the collagen and replaced it with its own.

Tips For Preventing Saggy Skin

Free radicals can get into the skin from many outside sources. Because of what it is exposed to, the body makes free radicals. When there are too many free radicals, oxidative stress happens. This can make the body’s inflammation worse.

Oxidative stress can speed up the skin’s aging process and cause it to sag. Pollution, UV light, cigarette smoke, and a bad diet can all cause more free radicals.

Antioxidants can stop free radicals from doing damage. Antioxidants are found in foods that come from plants. People can also try to keep their skin from getting loose by:

  • Having fun in the sun safely avoiding sunbeds, eating well, staying hydrated, and using lotion
  • Getting enough sleep, if needed, quitting smoking, if needed, and losing weight at a steady pace.

Depending on the cause and severity of sagging skin, some changes to how you live may help. Different techniques work better on other parts of the body. One of the most effective is exercise.

Resistance training is one type of exercise that can help build muscle mass. Building muscle can help make sagging skin look better, especially on the legs and arms.

Also, facial exercises may strengthen the jaw and neck muscles. This might stop the skin from sagging in these places.
