WHAT CAUSES LOOSE SKIN?
Loose skin, or skin laxity, is an unfortunate result of the aging process. As we grow older, the production of elastin and collagen in our bodies slows down. These are the two substances needed to keep our skin tight and supple. The loss of facial contour and definition, hollow cheeks, jowls, and turkey neck are some of the concerns that our patients feel the most self-conscious about. Often they can leave us looking much older than we actually are.
WHAT ARE COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN?
Collagen is an essential component for the skin. Collagen is what helps our skin stay supple and flexible. The dermis provides the foundation for our skin, and is closely involved in its elasticity because it is the main source of collagen. By having an adequate amount of collagen in the your skin, it can ensure that it looks radiant. Collagen also helps our skin stay hydrated.
Elastin is a highly elastic protein in our connective tissue that allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after contracting or stretching. Elastin helps your skin return to its original position after it is pinched or poked. Given the roles that collagen and elastin play, it’s easy to understand how important they are for healthy, youthful skin.
