With an Age the Skin Loses Its Elasticity Causing Skin Sagging and Drooping
Saggy Skin Treatment - what you should know
Sagging skin, also known as skin laxity, is a condition where the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, resulting in a droopy or loose appearance. It is a natural part of the aging process and can affect various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs.
At Beauty Pro NYC, we are offering a range of non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening procedures to help stimulate the production of new collagen in the treated areas.
With the regeneration of natural collagen, our clients immediately begin to notice smoother, softer skin and a more youthful appearance. The effects will continue to improve during the next few weeks or months following a course of skin tightening treatments, as the skin’s natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.

What causes Saggy Skin?
Sagging skin is primarily caused by the natural aging process and a combination of internal and external factors. As we age, our skin undergoes various changes that lead to a loss of firmness and elasticity. Some of the key causes of sagging skin include:
Collagen and Elastin Breakdown: Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin. Over time, their production decreases, and existing fibers start to break down. This loss of supportive tissue leads to sagging skin.
Loss of Fat: As we age, the fat beneath the skin diminishes, resulting in less volume and support. This can cause the skin to droop, particularly in the face, leading to jowls and other signs of aging.
Sun Damage: Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays accelerates collagen and elastin breakdown. The sun’s radiation damages skin cells, causing premature aging and sagging skin.
Smoking: Smoking is associated with decreased blood flow to the skin, which can lead to collagen breakdown. Additionally, smoking produces harmful free radicals that damage skin cells and accelerate aging.
Genetics: Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to have less resilient skin, making them more susceptible to sagging.
Weight Fluctuations: Rapid weight gain and loss can stretch the skin beyond its ability to bounce back, resulting in sagging, particularly in areas like the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
Poor Diet and Nutrition: A diet lacking in essential nutrients can affect the skin’s health and contribute to premature aging and sagging.
Dehydration: Inadequate hydration can lead to dry and less supple skin, making it more prone to sagging.
Repetitive Facial Expressions: Frequent facial movements, such as squinting, frowning, or laughing, can cause fine lines and wrinkles, which may eventually contribute to sagging skin.
Gravity: Over time, the force of gravity constantly pulling on the body can contribute to the downward sagging of skin and tissues.
Hormonal Changes: Hormonal shifts, particularly during menopause, can affect the skin’s elasticity and contribute to sagging
