Gravity does take its toll, but something else is at work here: Over time, the skin’s underlying structure breaks down, robbing our faces of their definition, youthful plumpness, and resilience. Skin also renews itself much more slowly than it once did. Thanks to all these factors (not to mention genetics, weight changes, and sun damage), skin starts to sag and hang (that’s where jowls come from). And some doctors say that once skin starts to slacken, pores often look larger, as if they’ve been stretched out of shape.

What You Can Do at Home

No easy fixes here. “Tightening sagging skin requires more intervention than any other problem,” says Ranella Hirsch, M.D., spokesperson for the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. A good moisturizer will plump skin temporarily, Dr. Hirsch says. But if the cream is too heavy, it will clog those oversize pores. The best at-home solution: what the beauty industry calls an “active” treatment, such as an over-the-counter vitamin A (known as retinol) cream, vitamin C serum, and alpha or beta hydroxy acids (AHAs or BHAs). These usually go on at night and help skin renew itself faster and look firmer.

What a Doctor Can Do

Not interested in a face-lift? That’s fine — there are noninvasive procedures worth investigating. Both infrared and laser treatments help stimulate the development of new collagen and “get heat deeply into the skin to help tighten fibrous bands,” explains Dr. Weiss, who is also vice president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

It is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin! Previously, the only way to reduce fat under the chin was through liposculpture.
