Has it started to feel like your skin is not as firm as it once was? Skin laxity is a condition that negatively impacts how tight skin is. Discover how you can combat loose skin during a consultation with us at The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL!
What Is Skin Laxity?
Skin laxity is a term referring to loose skin. It impacts each person differently, but it impacts nearly everyone at some point in their life. It is most often associated with facial skin or areas, but may also occur on other areas of the body.
Skin laxity and loose skin may cause a range of impacts on the appearance. They may manifest as:
- Crepey skin texture
- Drooping skin
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Volume loss
Each person will experience these changes to their skin differently, and it may impact confidence or happiness with one’s own appearance. However, a consultation with us in Florida can help you better understand your experiences and how to treat them.
What Causes It?
Aging is the main culprit for skin laxity. As our bodies age, our production processes for important tissues decline. Collagen and elastin are two important fibers for supporting skin. Not only does your body produce these tissues at a slower and lower rate, but the existing fibers also decline in strength and function.
While the natural aging process has a significant effect on skin laxity, there are other factors that may lead to loose skin, such as:
- Certain lifestyle habits (i.e. smoking)
- Not drinking enough water
- Overexposure to harmful chemicals
- Overexposure to the sun
- Significant weight loss
It is important to practice a regular skincare routine and form good habits to promote optimal skin health.
