Skin Laxity (Loose Skin)
Loose skin is the condition where your skin loses its firmness and elasticity. It can also refer to excess skin on your body. As we age, our body loses its ability to produce collagen and elastin, decreasing skin tightness. This can also occur because of rapid weight loss or weight fluctuations since your skin can’t adjust to the changes and tighten your skin as fast as weight is lost. Pregnancy also stretches the skin, resulting in loose skin after childbirth which may not regain elasticity. This condition can affect several parts of the body, including our face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs, which can cause a sagging or drooping appearance. Our treatment options aim to tighten your skin and eliminate the sagging skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy is an issue that many people suffer from. Luckily, it isn’t permanent and will go away over time. However, if the weight loss is significant, it may take a long time to go away. It’s also important to note that your body’s ability to tighten your skin decreases as you age, so it’s advised to check with our Medical Aesthetic Consultants/Staff to see which treatments suit you to remove loose skin.
While exercise and a healthy diet can contribute to overall body toning and weight management, they may not completely resolve loose skin. Building muscle in target areas helps fill out some areas, but loose skin often requires additional intervention from a healthcare professional, such as surgical or non-surgical procedures, to address the issue effectively.
