As collagen and elastin production decreases with age, once-taught skin can become loose, contributing to an aged appearance.
As we age, our slowing metabolism and hormone production results in less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Combine this with the cell-damaging effects of the sun and the result is weaker, drier, looser skin. While skin laxity can affect various areas of the body,
the most noticeable is in the face, upper chest and hands.
Where surgical facelifts were once the only option to correcting lax skin, SkinStudioMD offers treatment options without surgery or downtime that work with the body’s natural functionality to tighten and repair skin.
