I have read here and elsewhere arginine can cause face sagging...yep, it's true, I am seeing it in my face. My question: Is this permanent? YIKES! I would not think/hope so...but I have used it for awhile now. Thanks!

Yes, my bad! I was doing research late at night for some articles and I got these mixed up. Arginine=amino acid. SORRY!

I don't think it's been studied, but it could be at least partially reversible - i.e. like with short term weight gain and then loss - the skin snaps back. So, it probably depends on "how long and how much sag...".
