How your skin becomes stretched and saggy

At birth, your skin is rich with proteins called collagen and elastin that give your skin structure and elasticity. As you start to age, the production of these proteins starts to go down and your skin loses that elasticity. In addition, outside factors like stress and gravity will cause your skin to stretch and sag.

How to get tighter skin

In order to improve the look of stretched or saggy skin, your body either needs help creating new collagen, or it needs to have new tissues added to it. The following three options are great ways to achieve the look of tightened and more youthful skin.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injections of soft, gel-like tissues that plump up your skin. By adding in these natural-looking tissues, it can add volume to areas that are sagging and give you a younger and more radiant appearance. You can add fillers to your lips, face, cheeks, and hands in order to tighten sagging skin.


Sofwave is a new and innovative technology that encourages your skin to create new collagen. It uses ultrasound waves to reach deep enough into your skin tissues to trigger this new protein growth. Sofwave can help tighten many areas around your face like your jowls, jaw, mouth area, cheeks, and neck.


Morpheus8 is a fractional, radiofrequency treatment that can remodel the collagen in your skin for a new and improved look. This method is also able to stimulate new collagen production to give you that more youthful appearance. Morpheus8 can tighten areas around your face along with any sagging skin on your arms or abdomen. 

All of these treatment options use new tissues and collagen in order to tighten up sagging skin since the lack of the proteins collagen and elastin are why your skin has the stretched out appearance in the first place.
