Skin Laxity

Skin Laxity
Skin laxity gradually increases with age, causing skin to look loose and crepey. As we get older, our collagen and elastin production decreases resulting in skin appearing more thin and less supple.

Treatments for Skin Laxity

Skin laxity enhances the appearance of ageing. It is caused by the decrease of collagen and elastin production.

Collagen and elastin are vital to keeping the skin supple and flexible and when we lose elastin and collagen, the skin becomes more thin and loose with a crepey effect.

Skin laxity can be remedied with the use of dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid and laser treatments to stimulate more collagen. Dermal fillers and skin boosters restore lost volume to tighten and hydrate the skin to reduce the appearance of sagging skin.

Laser treatments like Youlase, resurface the skin, tightening it, and while causing controlled trauma, encourages collagen stimulation to reduce the effect of ageing.

SYMPTOMS of Skin Laxity

Skin laxity symptoms appear as crepey, loose skin which may lack hydration causing an aging effect and can impede confidence.


CAUSES of Skin Laxity

  • loss of elastin and collagen with age
  • lifestyle choices such as smoking and a poor diet
  • UV exposure

Prevention of Skin Laxity

Can be slowed down with a diet rich in antioxidants and collagen. There are collagen supplements like Skinade available to improve skin quality. Quitting smoking, avoiding sun exposure, a daily application of SPF50 and maintaining a healthy weight can also slow down the appearance of skin laxity.
