Lets keep them guessing!
As we age, gravity and time take their gradual toll on our skin. Supportive collagen and elastin proteins in the dermis gradually deplete, leaving us with saggy skin that lacks the firmness and vitality of our youth. Factors like sun damage, muscle loss and repeated facial expressions also intensify this aging process over time. The result is a situation that can leave many of us looking and feeling unhappy with the quality of our skin .

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What causes loose and sagging skin on your face and neck?
Collagen and elastin depletion
As we age, production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth—slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on the face, neck and body. If you are bothered by skin laxity, non-surgical skin tightening can temporarily halt this process and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.Our skin loses supportive collagen proteins at a rate of around 1% per year after the age of 20. The skin’s natural elastin and hyaluronic acid stores also gradually degrade. All of these substances work together to keep our skin plump and firm.
Fat and muscle loss
We also lose fat in the skin’s epidermis, which leads to a loss of elasticity and volume. Cheeks and temples are vulnerable to this hollowing, which is worsened by a gradual loss of muscle tissues and bone. Our chins and necks also lose their definition, resulting in the formation of jowls, wrinkles and drooping skin.
Hormone levels can also wreak having on women in particular, as lower estrogen levels after the menopause make skin much more prone to thinning, sagging and wrinkling.
UV exposure, pollutants, weight loss and lifestyle choices like drinking excess alcohol all speed up the process of declining elastin and collagen levels. Together, these factors create a perfect storm for sagging, tired and wrinkled skin to develop. Luckily, we can tighten and revitalize sagging skin without the need for invasive surgery or downtime.

DR JUDY TODD TRANSFORMS JUDY MURRAY'S SKIN WITH THREE MORPHEUS8 TREATMENTS
.....and Judy, 61-year-old, looks 10 years younger! Hear what she had to say about her experience.
"That was absolute gold dust! I mean if they’ve noticed and mentioned it, then it clearly has made a huge difference, and that made me very happy.
“Andy and Jamie couldn’t work out what I’d been up to but when I’ve explained it to them, they were interested and Jamie’s wife even said to me that she’d had some micro-needling treatments, but not one as advanced as the one I’d had.
“I’d say it’s taken at least ten years off my appearance, as you can see for yourself. I am absolutely thrilled to bits with the result, my skin is fresher, clearer, and I feel much better about myself.
"The lines on my face have softened significantly and what I love about it most is how many people are noticing and are saying, 'what have you done to your skin,' and then I tell them, that it’s a natural treatment and it’s all thanks to Dr Judy Todd.
"I’ll definitely do it again, it has really helped me, and I would recommend it to anybody.”
