Causes of loss of skin firmness

Whether it is on the body or the face, the epidermis is subject to the effects of the passage of time and it shows! Because of the slowing down of its cell renewal, the skin gradually loses elasticity. In concrete terms, this means that fibroblasts, i.e. the cells in the dermis that produce collagen fibers and elastin in our body, can no longer do their job.

As a result, the skin loses firmness, as do the muscles that support it, resulting in excess skin being drawn down the face. This is called subsidence.

Loss of skin firmness can have several causes:

  • Excessive weight loss: following a period of obesity that had greatly stretched the skin.
  • Hormonal variations: such as at the time of menopause or following pregnancy.
  • An unbalanced lifestyle: especially with the consumption of alcohol and tobacco, which accelerate skin aging.
  • Age: which is by far the most important factor in the loss of skin elasticity.


"Withered", "soft", or "hanging" skin... This aesthetic observation can concern several parts of the body, such as the arms, breasts, buttocks, thighs or even the lower abdomen. But very often, it is the loss of firmness of the skin of the face that is the most visible and the most difficult to accept.

In order to avoid these effects and to firm and tighten the skin, many techniques have emerged. Often linked to cosmetic surgery, these remain quite invasive and can be circumvented with the right daily routine. Indeed, preserving the firmness of your skin requires first and foremost the use of appropriate cosmetic care.
