What is facial sagging?
Facial sagging is a cosmetic condition that occurs naturally with age. Having cheeks that hang off your face and dangling jowls are signs of facial sagging. Loss of bone volume and soft tissue fat in the face are also determinants of developing saggy skin.
What causes facial sagging?
As we age, our skin and bodies tend to change with time. As we grow older our skin progressively starts losing collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that our skin needs to stay taut and healthy-looking. This can cause the skin on our face to sag, giving us an aged and gaunt look.
Also, there may be loss of facial fat which reduces the volume of the face. The loss of facial fat along with collagen causes a loss of elasticity which makes the face sag.
What are the types of facial sagging?

How is facial sagging treated at The Artisan Clinic?
The Picosure Laser is so named because of its picosecond laser – the pulse duration of the laser is one-trillionth of a second. This patented technology allows laser beams to penetrate deeper into the skin to allow for effective collagen production.
Each Pico Laser has different pulse durations ranging from 450 picoseconds to 750 picoseconds. The shorter pulse duration gives it better safety, higher efficacy and reduced damage and discomfort as compared to normal nanolasers.
With Picosure Laser, we’re sure you’ll get rid of all your skin issues in no time.
Keep In Mind
PicoSure, PicoPlus and PicoWay are different brands of picosecond lasers. You can have the best picosecond laser in the world, but the doctor’s diagnosis, choice of treatment protocol and way of handling the machine is way more important.
The settings of the pico laser has to be adjusted to fit the patient’s condition, and a good doctor should be able to tweak accordingly.
Do your research and make sure the doctor has a good track record of using pico lasers on Asian skin.

Potenza is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technique that combines monopolar and bipolar RF at 1 or 2 MHz frequencies in a single device. Heat and microwounds created by ultrafine needles are used to trigger the skin’s natural healing response, so that collagen and elastin are remodelled and regenerated.
The microneedles use Tiger Tip technology, meaning they can deliver RF energy at 2 different depths in a single treatment, thus saving time and reducing discomfort for the patient. The RF energy is delivered deep into the skin to produce dramatic results, helping to improve any signs of ageing and improve blemishes or scars.
Aging is inevitable but you can choose to age gracefully.
