As we age Women's Jerome Baker Jersey , the cumulative effects of sun damage, weight fluctuations and genetics all may have a profound effect on the appearance of our skin. These changes affect the elasticity of our skin. As a result, skin can hang down as gravity acts on it creating droopiness, wrinkles and bands. This can be thought of as excess skin and is similar in concept to a dress that becomes too large as its owner loses weight. With the introduction of many skin tightening treatments, sagging of skin doesn’t have to be a part of our destiny anymore.

Causes of Skin Sagging

There are few main causes of sagging skin as listed below:

- The natural processes of ageing and the downward pull of gravity plays a major role. After numerous years of fighting the natural downward pull our skin begins to give in and sag downward. The effects of this gravitational pull do not show up until we are well into our mature years but the weakening of the skin happens from the day we are born.

- Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity. The sun's powerful rays damage skin cells which, over time, this can increase the effects of aging. This breaks down your collagen and elastin, which can lead to saggy skin and wrinkles.

- The loss of large amounts of weight over a short period of time can cause skin to sag. Those who undergo weight loss surgery often find themselves stuck with skin and tissue too stretched out to snap back. People who lose a lot of weight quickly with diet and exercise may be disappointed by the amount of skin that is left sagging after all their hard work and discipline

Tips to Prevent Skin Sagging

- Avoid sun damage. Use sunblock when outdoors. Avoid sun exposure during peak hours - 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Avoid smoking as it is the second most common cause of premature aging.

- Lose weight slowly and do not exceed 1-2 pounds per week. While dieting, maintain your protein and nutritional needs. Preserve your muscle mass and incorporate strength training in your workout regimen.

- For your facial skin, incorporate a skincare regimen that includes exfoliation, hydration, rejuvenation and nutrition.

Treatments for Skin Tightening

Dermal Fillers:

Dermal fillers can soften the shadowing that occurs around your facial creases, thus making the jowls and cheek folds appear less prominent. They can be used to restore volume to the cheeks and to lessen the appearance of the jowls to some extent.

Facial Exercises

Facial exercises are targeted at strengthening the muscles that support the skin and not just at tightening the top layers of skin. Through these exercises individuals can build up muscles so skin is held tighter to the face and sagging and wrinkles are reduced.

Laser Facial Resurfacing

This technique is the least invasive and utilizes a laser to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help minimize the look of skin sag.


Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, brow and décolletage. Ultherapy treatment uses focused ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from deep within without any downtime.

CANBERRA, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Funding from a Hong Kong-based charitable organization will allow Australian scientists to study how new technology can improve outcomes for gastrointestinal (GI) cancer patients.

Sean Grimmond and Alex Boussioutas, researchers from the Center for Cancer Research at the University of Melbourne, were granted 3 million U.S. dollars by the Li Ka Shing Foundation to research how genome sequencing can be used in diagnosing and treating upper-GI cancers.

Upper-GI cancers include cancers of the pancreas, stomach and esophagus. Gastric cancer is particularly prominent in Asia while pancreatic cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

Grimmond, director of the Center for Cancer Research, said that genome sequencing, the process by which the DNA sequence of an organism can be determined, could change the way cancer is treated.

He said that the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) is working to establish a database of whole genetic sequences from 25,000 cancer patients with 50 types of cancer.

"The next step is seeing how we can use genome readouts to give us better insights into a patient's outcome: can we make decisions on improving cancer treatment based on the readouts," Grimmond told Xinhua on Tuesday.

"We also want to understand the oncogenic switch in upper-GI cancers that causes a pre-malignant lesion to become a tumour that grows out of control.

"It could change everything from the diagnosis of a cancer to the treatment."

He said that the cost of undertaking sequencing was becoming more affordable every year to the point where having genes sequenced could be commonplace within five years.

"When the first Australian cancer patient was sequenced, it was in 2010 as part of a big international initiative, it cost us all up about (800,000 U.S. dollars) and 40 people worked on that project," Grimmond said.

"At that stage that team could do maybe four patients a year.

"We're now at a stage where the technology allows us to do 3,000 patients a year at several thousand dollars per patient with a much smaller team.

"Within five years we should be looking at a price point between an x-ray and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)."

The team from the cancer research center had been interested in studying upper-GI cancers for years, Grimmond said, when the Li Ka Shing Foundation made it known that it was interested in funding research on the subject.
