As we age our skin gets looser due to the loss of collagen and elastin; this is called skin laxity.
Skin laxity is the result of the ageing process but other factors such as genetics, diet, stress, sun exposure, weight fluctuations can contribute.
Whilst many people accept skin laxity as part of ageing, there are things you can do to prevent and treat skin laxity.
Skin laxity can also be the result of trauma or an accident where injury to ligaments or joint has occurred. In these cases, reconstructive surgery may be required.
Facial Skin Tightening
Loss of collagen and elastin in our skin can start as early as in our 30’s.
Face ‘jowling’ is very common and one of the reasons many people seek a facelift.
Skin laxity can also be prominent around the cheeks and eyelids.
Body Skin Tightening
Loose skin around the abdominal region is often common do to weight loss or post-partum. Loose abdominal skin can be tightened.
