Skin Laxity (Skin)

In Newport Beach

When most people think of sagging skin, they think of an older individual. However, sagging skin and cellulite can occur in patients of any age in any step of life. There are many factors that can take a toll on the elasticity of our skin, leading to unwanted skin laxity.

What Causes Skin Laxity & Cellulite?

We all experience skin laxity as we age, regardless of a healthy lifestyle. Collagen and elastin (the building block of the skin) are needed for the skin to appear youthful and tight. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin. We are also exposed to high levels of free radicals that damage the skin over time. If we do not consume enough antioxidants to combat free radicals, our skin is more likely to show signs of aging and skin laxity. Fluctuations in weight and pregnancy can also lead to skin laxity and cellulite on the body.

While there are ways to protect the skin such as using sunscreens daily, consuming antioxidants, and making sure to get enough vitamin C, if you are already dealing with sagging skin or cellulite, there are advanced treatments available today to help tighten the skin.

What Does Skin Laxity & Cellulite Look Like?

Skin laxity can show up in many ways, including sagging or wrinkled skin on almost any area of the body. Cellulite shows up as a bumpy, dimpled flesh, often on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and belly. These conditions are common but can take a toll on the individual’s self-esteem.
