Your skin is always changing and remoulding itself. Although many such changes are natural, sometimes certain factors—both internal and external—can cause damage to your skin leading to loss in skin elasticity causing loose or saggy skin. While it’s quite natural to have your skin loosen up and form wrinkles as you age it’s also natural to have the desire to continue having firm and plump looking skin. It’s your skin, your choice. 

So, if you’re someone who is seeking the answers for how to tighten skin on face or how to tighten skin on body, let us help you through it via expert guidance at the Bodycraft Clinic.

What Causes Sagging Skin?

To learn how to tackle the issues of loose skin, it’s important to understand what are the causal factors behind it.

1. Aging

Collagen and Elastin are two very essential proteins found under the skin. The former is responsible for skin structure and helps support the firmness of the skin, while the latter is responsible for the flexibility of the skin.

As you grow old, your body produces less amounts of these proteins, which results in the skin losing its ability of remaining taut and that of bouncing back. This results in saggy skin.

2. Sun Exposure

One of the leading causes of saggy skin as well as other skin problems is the exposure to the sun’s UV rays. These rays, if soaked directly and for too long by the skin can kill the skin cells, damage its natural elasticity and hence lead to premature aging. That is why proper care is extremely vital before going out in the sun and in fact it’s recommended to avoid too much sunlight. 

3. Lifestyle

There are a lot of lifestyle related reasons that lead up to skin loosening its natural elasticity:

  • Smoking: Smoking can be one of the biggest causes of premature aging. This happens because the chemicals in the cigarette provoke the ruination of collagen and elastin.
  • Weight Loss: Massive or immediate weight loss can trigger sagging skin. It is so because the expanded skin needs time to regain its original structure after the fat is gone from underneath the skin.
  • Daily Routine: Your diet routine as well as casual habits like squinting too much, rubbing your eyes too often or placing your hands on your chin can also cause creases and lines on your face. 

4. Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the skin elaborates itself to accustom to the body growing, especially around the belly area. After delivery, it’s quite common for women to have loose skin because it can be a time taking process for the skin to regain its original structure.

What Problems Can Loose Skin Cause?

Although loose skin isn’t harmful, it can definitely be troublesome for a lot of people in differing ways: 

  • It can be physically uncomfortable to carry the floppy skin, cause irritation of the skin and in cases of loose skin after weight loss, it can be quite painful.
  • It can be emotionally and mentally hard to deal with the way it looks—causing damage to self-esteem and instigating body image insecurities.

Now, you might try anti-aging products, but their efficacy and durability could be disappointing. At Bodycraft, our experts suggest the treatments for face skin tightening as well as for body skin tightening that will help in achieving long-lasting youthful and glowing skin.
