What is facial sagging?
What causes facial sagging?
Our skin is attached to underlying muscle and it is this muscle in conjunction with our skin’s natural elasticity that determines the tautness of our face.
As we age muscles and fat diminish, collagen and elastin production slows and skin loses elasticity which can contribute to sagging.
Other factors that can cause facial sagging include UV damage which speeds up the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres causing the skin to sag and of course our genes. In addition frequently looking down when using a smartphone, laptop or tablet, shortens the neck muscles accelerating the formation of jowls.
