Skin laxity enhances the appearance of ageing. Skin laxity is caused by the decrease of collagen and elastin production.
Collagen and elastin are vital to keep 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 skinboosters restore lost volume to tighten and hydrate the skin to reduce the appearance of skin laxity.
Laser treatments like Youlase, resurface the skin, tightening it, and while causing controlled trauma, encourages collagen stimulation to reduce the effect of ageing.
Skin laxity symptoms appear as crepey, loose skin which may lack hydration causing an aging effect and can impede confidence.
Skin laxity can be slowed down with a diet rich in anti-oxidants 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.
