As v-shaped faces are in trend, women are becoming increasingly concerned about the sharpness of their face and how toned and sculpted their cheeks, chin and jaw areas are. Sagging skin is the last thing we want—but what actually causes it?
Healthy skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis, which acts as a waterproof barrier, providing UV protection and immunity, and the dermis, which contains fibroblasts that produce an abundance of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. In between the epidermis and the dermis is the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ), which maintains skin cohesion and support the skin’s metabolic needs.
As we get older, our skin loses its firmness, elasticity and ability to restore itself. The delay in collagen and elastin regeneration results in structural strain, which contributes to visible signs of aging: sagging skin, loss of contours and dull skin. This often starts happening around the eye area, as well as the jowls, neck and décolletage. Besides the natural aging process, one of the biggest culprits of sagging skin is the sun. Over time, exposure to the sun’s damaging rays break down elastin in the skin and weakens it. It’s like a rubber band that has lost its elasticity and has started to sag and droop. Other factors that contribute to sagging skin include significant weight loss, poor diet, smoking, too much alcohol and inadequate sleep.
