Saggy Skin (Body)
It's not just the elderly who have to worry about saggy skin.
As we age, we naturally experience decreasing levels of collagen and elastin – those magical compounds responsible for soft, taut, wrinkle-free skin. But sun exposure and significant stretching of the skin can do even greater damage to collagen and elastin, which can make your skin sag much sooner in life than you expected.
Now you can do something about it, quickly and easily, in as little as a handful of one-hour sessions in the comfort of the Glamoi Med Spa nearest you. Find out more about how we can help you freeze or melt away fat and tighten loose skin on your body:
Sun Exposure Causes Skin to Sag
Most of us believe a tan gives our skin a healthy glow. The problem is, any sun-induced change in skin color is the result of skin damage and can prematurely age your skin.
If you’ve spent significant time in the sun without protection, your skin has already soaked up damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays can penetrate the skin and break down collagen and elastin, causing your skin to become loose and saggy. Sun damage can occur anywhere on the body, including your neck, belly, chest, back, arms, thighs, and butt.
Concerned about whether sun exposure has harmed your skin? Make plans to visit one of our talented aesthetic professionals at Glamoi. We’ll start you off with a free skin analysis that uses advanced technology to identify any damage underneath your skin, which can help reveal your skin’s "true age." From there, we can help you select the best type of skin treatments for you.
Pregnancy, Weight Loss, and Body Building Can Lead to Saggy Skin, Too
Anything that causes your skin to significantly stretch can ultimately result in loose, sagging skin. That’s because when you are no longer pregnant, no longer building up muscles, or after you’ve lost a lot of weight, the stretched skin remains without its elasticity, which means your skin won't be able to snap back to its original firmness.
That’s why undergoing any of the following may increase your likelihood of ending up with saggy skin on your body:
- Bariatric surgery
- Body building
- Weight loss
