How to prevent droopy cheeks and the process of sagging cheeks by depology

when does Drooping and Saggy Cheeks start to form?

Our face changes significantly as you age as a result of the passage of time.
The baby fat that is buried beneath the skin is lost a lot in your thirties, giving your face a leaner, more "adult" appearance. From one decade to the next, this pattern is repeated. When facial fat is lost, the collagen beneath the skin also deteriorates, causing droopy cheek skin to become looser and eventually droop and sag.

The cheeks, especially the lower cheek region and the jawline, are the areas where drooping and sagging are most frequently seen. This area of the face is prone to jowl issues, which can be a telltale symptom of aging.

Why are my cheeks sagging? what are the causes?


Your cheekbones and the area below your jawline experience significant collagen and elastin loss over time. The protein collagen is what gives your body's connective tissue its structure.
Another protein found in connective tissue called elastin allows your skin to regain its original shape even after being stretched.

The cheek skin around your mouth loses firmness and tightness when these proteins are depleted.

Gravity then pulls it downward until it sags and reaches the area on either side of your lips and chin.


Additionally, whether or not you have jowls and how apparent they get over time might be influenced by your Genetic structure. You are more likely to get jowls if one or both of your parents do. Early in life, you could begin to see jowls if you naturally have thin skin or little collagen and elastin in your skin. It's possible to start getting jowls in your teens or early 20s.|


Other factors : that contribute to droppy cheeks and the process of sagging cheeks that include your environment or your lifestyle choices. These consist of:

Making certain facial expressions frequently can cause your face or neck skin to sag.

Skin extends to cover more body mass when you acquire weight, which causes weight loss.
It's possible for the stretched skin to sag if you lose weight.

Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun might harm your skin's collagen.

Your skin may start to sag earlier as a result.

Smoking: Collagen and elastin can be harmed by the nicotine and other substances in cigarettes.

Additionally, smoking can constrict your blood arteries. This restricts the flow of blood and keeps your skin from receiving enough vitamins, such as A, to keep it healthy.

Using computers or phones: Over time, the skin around your neck can become less elastic if you spend a lot of time using a computer or staring down at a smartphone. "Tech neck" is a term that has been used to describe these jowls.


Aside from surgical and other medical procedures mentioned earlier, you can add facial exercises to your skincare routine to firm up your jawline. Try these exercises at least eight to 12 times in a row while holding the pose for about five seconds each:

  • Open your mouth as wide as possible (like a yawn) and close it without your teeth touching.
  • Lie down and pucker your lips outwards. Use your fingers to pull the mouth downwards.
  • Blow up your cheeks and release.
  • Chew with your head tilted up.
  • Smile as wide as you can while moving your head up and down.
  • Tilt your head back while your mouth is closed.
  • Lie down and pull your chin down to your neck.
  • Hum with your tongue pressed against the roof of your mouth.


You can take a number of proactive steps to help reduce the appearance of a saggy cheeks and droopy neck.
