Youthful skin is usually plump, soft, and resilient. That’s largely due to the layer of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of your skin. Your collagen layer deteriorates with age, leaving your skin without that same structure and support you enjoyed in your earlier years.
Factors like smoking and sun exposure can also break down your collagen and elastin. Your facial muscles, soft tissues, and even bone begins to weaken and thin as you grow older, leaving your skin with less support. Then there’s gravity and its ever-present effects on your entire body.
Sagging skin is the result of a combination of these factors. Fortunately, there are effective treatment options that don’t require plastic surgery.
