Sagging or thinning skin is a common sign of aging, created by a natural loss of volume and elasticity as we age.
"Elasticity" is the skin's ability to stretch and snap back. Officially known as “elastosis,” loss of elasticity is the degeneration of skin tissue due to aging and other factors. This condition can also be caused by repeated sun exposure, where the skin appears weathered or leathery. As you age, you naturally loose the collagen and elastin that gives the skin it's structure, which can result in a loose or saggy appearance.
With this natural loss of collagen and elastin, the skin can also become thinner and more fragile. This can result in veins and blood vessels becoming more noticeable, almost as if the skin has become translucent in appearance.
