Are you concerned with loose, crepey skin on your face? Skin laxity is something that all people will experience at some point during their lifetime.
What Causes Facial Skin Laxity?
The natural aging process, genetics, diet, sun exposure, lifestyle, stress, smoking, excessive drinking, and certain medications can contribute to skin laxity.
The skin’s structure is made up of two main components that will affect laxity: collagen and elastin. As we age, out skin will begin to lose these two components, leading to lax or loose skin.
Collagen is the main building block of the skin and other connective tissues throughout the body.
Elastin is a protein made up of elastic fibers of connective tissue. It accounts for the skin’s elasticity, or the ability to “snap back” when pulled or stretched.
What Does Facial Skin Laxity Look Like?
Facial skin laxity may appear in many forms, including:
- Sagging jowls
- Wrinkles and lines
- Crepey skin around the eyes
- Loose neck skin
How is Facial Skin Laxity Treated?
Microneedling treatments and radiofrequency treatments can help to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin, restoring stronger skin that will snap back with ease.
