Sagging Skin and skin elasticity

Sagging skin refers to loose skin that has little to no definition due to a loss of fat and a reduction in collagen and elastin proteins. Sagging skin can appear for various reasons, and in different places, however, it is most commonly found on the neck, stomach, jawline, upper arms and thighs.

Sagging skin is the dreaded certainty that many of us have in our future. However, while it is certain to come eventually, we should do all we can to prolong its arrival and maintain our youthful look. Unfortunately, in spite of all that we may do, there are a few forces (or causes) that push against our efforts and perhaps make that saggy skin arrive prematurely. So, if you’re looking for a way to prevent unwanted impacts on your skin, like premature sagging, it is easiest to understand the causes and then use treatments to address the condition you’re most prone to. With that in mind, we are providing you with an overview of the causes and the possible treatments that may help your endeavor to stay youthful.

importance of Collagen and Elastin in the skin

Collagen and Elastin are the building blocks of youthful, elastic skin. They form the mesh that supports the skin, resisting the effect of gravity and allowing it to stay tight and firm.

Aging and sun exposure cause our skin to lose collagen and elastin, which leads to sagging as this supportive mesh becomes looser. Genetics also play a role as our skin is programmed to age differently from person to person. In addition, the production of new collagen and elastin reduces with age, hence stimulation of its production is a cornerstone of saggy skin treatments.

What causes sagging skin?
Natural Aging

Collagen and elastin production slow down with age. Harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays of the sun damage skin cells and break down the skin's elasticity. As collagen breaks down in the skin and is not replenished by the body as readily, skin begins to sag. This is one of the leading factors in sagging skin.

Weight loss

After your body has spent a considerable amount of time carrying around extra weight that it was otherwise not accustomed to, there may be lasting damage to the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin. That damage may result in your skin having difficulty bouncing back to its original state – before the weight gain. It is typically through excessive or quick weight loss that your skin fibers may not be able to compensate, resulting in saggy skin.


A completely natural part of pregnancy is stretched skin around the abdomen as the baby develops. Unfortunately, after giving birth, the mother will be left with stretched, damaged skin that is unable to bounce back easily.

Medical conditions

There is more than one medical condition that may result in sagging skin. And determining which condition may be responsible for sagging skin is a job that is best done by a dermatologist.

Non Surgical Treatments

Overall, non-invasive treatments can provide effective results with fewer risks and less downtime, making them a popular choice for many patients

Here at Lazz Aesthetic, we advocate for non-invasive treatments because they offer several benefits over invasive procedures. Compared to surgeries, non-invasive treatments do not require patients to go under the knife hence there are fewer risks for complications during the procedure. Furthermore, non-invasive treatments tend to have minimal to no downtime, allowing for a more convenient experience in the hustle and bustle of modern living. Without the cost of having a full medical team for the treatment, such as an anesthetist, nurses, and technicians, non-invasive treatments are often more affordable for patients. Additionally, non-invasive treatments are typically less painful than invasive procedures, which can make them a more appealing option for patients.

Injectable Treatment

Here at Lazz Aesthetic, our Hyaluronic Dermal Filler is our injectable of choice for helping with sagging skin. Using hyaluronic acid as its key ingredient, it is used to rejuvenate and tighten skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body and is responsible for maintaining skin hydration and elasticity.

How Does It Work?

When injected into the skin, our dermal filler spreads out and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are important proteins that provide structure and support to the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

By increasing the production of these proteins, our Hyaluronic Dermal Filler can help to restore firmness and elasticity to the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging; improving overall skin texture and tone. The treatment is particularly effective for areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage, which are prone to sagging as we age.

What Happens Post Treatment?

One of the key benefits of our Hyaluronic Dermal Filler is that it is a non-surgical treatment that requires minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. It typically involves two sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart, with results visible around 4-6 weeks after the first treatment. The effects of our dermal filler can last for up to 6 months or more.

It is important to note that while our Hyaluronic Dermal Filler can help with sagging skin, it is not a substitute for surgical procedures such as facelifts or neck lifts. It's best to arrange for a consultation with our doctors to determine if our Hyaluronic Dermal Filler is a suitable treatment for your specific needs and goals.

Laser Treatment

Lazz Aesthetic’s 4D Laser treatment is a non-surgical laser treatment that can be used to tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. The procedure uses a combination of four different laser modes to target different layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a tighter, smoother, and more youthful appearance.

How Does It Work?

Our 4D laser treatment works in 4 distinct steps, each targeting a different skin layer for a more effective treatment.

1. Smooth Mode: This mode is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by heating up the skin's surface layer, stimulating collagen production and rejuvenating the skin.

2. FRAC3 Mode: This mode targets the deeper layers of the skin to address pigmentation, sun damage, and other skin imperfections.

3. PIANO Mode: This mode heats up the skin's deeper layers to promote collagen production and tighten sagging skin.

4. SupErficial Mode: This mode gently ablates the skin's surface layer to improve texture and reduce pore size.

By combining these four laser modes, our 4d Laser treatment can effectively address many signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin. The treatment is minimally invasive and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for those who want to achieve a more youthful look without undergoing surgery. However, it's important to note that results may vary depending on the individual's skin type and condition, and multiple treatments may be required for optimal results. It's best to arrange for a consultation with our doctors to determine if our 4D Laser Treatment is a suitable treatment for your specific needs and goals.
