Skin Laxity

Skin laxity can occur on all areas of the body as a result of the natural aging process, weight fluctuations, genetics, lifestyle, sun exposure, and smoking. Skin laxity of the face may be the result of deeper volume loss. As the skin loses collagen and elastin it may develop a crepe or loose appearance. Depending on the area, severity of the skin laxity and patient candidacy, there are corrective options that range from laser resurfacing, radiofrequency technology to surgical intervention.
