Sagging skin and wrinkles are mainly related to the following factors: long-term exposure to UV radiation, aging, smoking, drinking and lack of exercise. All these factors reduce the skin collagen, which make the skin sagging with wrinkles and lack of elasticity. Treatment may not be necessary when skin starts to age, patients can try to modify their usual habits first, and it is also important to avoid prolonged UV exposure and apply sunscreen. To further enhance the quality of your skin, you can apply vitamin A acid cream which can slow down the skin aging process, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment for skin lifting, which effectively stimulate collagen growth, as well as smoothen and tighten the wrinkles. However, patients should be aware that pregnant women are not suitable in using vitamin A acid cream. The cream consists of different level of acidity, the mild ones can be purchased in the pharmacies, whereas prescription is needed for the ones with high acidity.
