Your skin goes through many changes as you age, it will feel drier, more fragile and it won’t be as plump and tight as it used to be back when you were younger. Along with other factors such as sun exposure, personal skin care at home and diet, gravity will take its toll as well. You are not the only person that will notice your skin has lost its firmness and that it has started to sag, it is a perfectly normal thing to happen to an aged skin.
Sagging skin on your face happens because as we age our skin becomes lazy and does not produce collagen and elastin as fast as we need it, the amount of collagen and elastin fibers in our skin decreases. Collagen and elastin give your skin it’s strength, elasticity and plumpness and without enough of it your skin starts to sag. Too much sun exposure over the years will break down collagen and elastin fibers as well.
A sagging face will be a thing of the past if you come and visit us at Glo Laser & Beauty. We recommend doing 8-10 Skin Tightening treatments every 2 weeks for best results. Our Skin Tightening treatments is done using the Alma Beauty Reform machine, which uses Radio Frequency energy. This treatment does exactly what it says- it tightens your skin. It works by gently heating the skin, which stimulates your skin to renew itself and produce collagen fibers, giving you a tighter, firmer skin than you had before. For homecare our therapists can recommend to use a product that contains growth factors to stimulate your skin’s natural renewal process and collagen and elastin production. Lamelle’s Dermaheal range is the perfect product range to do that because it contains adequate levels of growth factors to help firm the skin.
