Skin laxity is a common sign of aging that leaves many people frustrated with their appearance. Your once firm, supple skin may now sag and droop. From mild to severe skin laxity anywhere on the body, Dr. Stile offers multiple treatments to give you tighter skin.
What Causes Skin Laxity?
The underlying cause of skin laxity is typically insufficient collagen, which is a natural result of age and sun damage. Collagen is an essential fiber that gives your skin structure and support. When there’s not enough of it, your skin starts to sag and form wrinkles.
Our skin naturally produces less collagen as we age, so a decrease in collagen is inevitable over time. However, sun damage can also damage collagen fibers, speeding up this decline.
