Skin Tightening

About

Skin tightening refers to the treatment of sagging or loose skin. Sagging skin is the dreaded certainty that many of us have in our future. It is characterized by the skin looking less firm as it once was.

Causes of Skin Tightening

Sagging skin happens naturally as we age, mainly due to the loss of two important proteins created within the middle layer of skin in the body, the dermis. Those proteins are elastin and collagen. However, there are other factors that can accelerate this phenomena and they include:

  • Exposure to the sun and UV radiation.
  • Exposure to pollutants.
  • Poor nutrition and lack of antioxidants.
  • Smoking.
  • Sudden weight gain and loss.
  • Pregnancy.
