Taking care of your skin isn’t always easy. It can be especially frustrating when you realize your skin is starting to sag and become loose. This is often very prominent on the face and the neck. Loose skin on the neck causes the jawline to lose definition and ages the appearance of the face. This can be distressing for someone who is uncomfortable with the idea of loose skin on their neck. Thankfully, treatments like a neck lift can help remove that loose skin once and for all. Let’s take a closer look at what causes loose skin on the neck and how a neck lift can fix it.
While we all love to go out and enjoy the sun once and a while, the sun emits harmful UV radiation. Our skin protects our body and acts as a barrier to UV radiation, and naturally mitigates some of the damage. However, extended UV exposure causes damage to the surface of the skin and the underlying structure. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity over time. The skin will become dark, stiff, and dull. The inability to stretch properly can make sun-damaged skin become loose.
It is common knowledge that loose skin, wrinkles, and fine lines are all a sign of aging. This is because the body naturally decreases the amount of collagen it produces. Collagen is an essential component of your skin and is what allows your skin to stretch. A large amount of collagen in the skin will lead to tight, healthy, and radiant skin. There is no way to avoid this loss of collagen at the moment, and this leads to loose skin.
Healthy weight loss is always a good thing. However, large amounts of weight loss can lead to loose skin. This happens because your skin has to stretch to accommodate a gain in weight. Excessive stretching of the skin will damage it and cause it to lose its elasticity.
