Loose Skin

Loose skin refers to a loss of firmness and elasticity, often occurring with age. As we age, collagen and elastin production in the skin decrease. These fibers provide structure and support, and their decline leads to sagging and loose skin, particularly noticeable on the face, neck, and arms.

Causes: Ageing is the primary cause. Rapid weight loss, genetics, and sun damage can accelerate loose skin development.

Treatments: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and exercise, can help. Topical retinoids and certain skincare ingredients may offer some improvement. In-office procedures like microneedling, radiofrequency treatments, or surgical lifting procedures can provide more significant tightening effects.

Disclaimer: While treatments can significantly improve loose skin, achieving perfectly taut skin might not be achievable, especially with significant laxity.
