What is skin laxity?
Skin laxity or saggy skin is a common aesthetic concern for both men and women. As we age, our skin naturally loses firmness, making us look and feel older, tired, and less attractive. Previous skin lifting methods often involved invasive procedures, but now there are many non-invasive treatments that can effectively lift the skin.
Do you have concerns of loose, crepe-y skin on your face and/or body? Skin laxity is something everyone will face at some point in their life due to the natural aging process. Besides aging, there are other factors that can play a part in skin laxity, such as intrinsic and extrinsic factors, genetics, diet, lifestyle, sun exposure, stress and smoking. Sometimes following a healthy diet and workout regimen isn’t enough to target laxity in the skin. There are two vital components to the skin’s structure that will affect laxity; collagen and elastin. As we age we begin to lose these two key components and our skin begins to lose elasticity, resulting in loose or sagging skin.
What causes skin laxity?
The natural loss of collagen that occurs after age 30 is responsible for a variety of concerns. These concerns include wrinkles, lines, and an overall lack of firmness of our skin. There are steps you can take to delay saggy skin, such as avoiding excessive sun exposure and smoking. You can also use skin care products, but all of these options will only delay the inevitable. The only way to turn back the clock on skin laxity is to invest in aesthetic treatments that successfully stimulate the growth of collagen.
