Some people’s faces show “jowling” as early as the 30’s. Skin laxity can happen to all skin types and all age groups. Both men and women get skin laxity. Laxity of the skin can occur anywhere on the body. Lax skin is often the most noticeable on the face, but may also be prevalent on the neck, jawline, hands, abdomen, and thighs.
Skin laxity affects targeted areas by increasing fine, crinkly lines and wrinkles, causing puffiness and bags under the eyes, and intensifying the appearance of cellulite. But regardless of where and how skin laxity appears, the condition can exacerbate the appearance of age and detract from one’s natural beauty.
Skin laxity is the result of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Natural aging, genetics, diet, stress, lifestyle, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, exposure to environmental toxins, and smoking may all contribute, resulting in loss of collagen and elastin in our skin.
The breakdown of these skin-binding fibers causes laxity and it increases over years. Gravity also plays a large part in pulling the looser skin downwards and it starts to do so as early as our 30’s. Finding the optimal treatment depends on the severity of your skin laxity and your underlying skin tone.
There are a number of highly effective treatments that can tighten lax skin or add volume, and the sooner you act the more you will prevent further laxity from occurring.
