Skin Tightening

Overview

Skin laxity refers to loose skin. It is something that all of us will face in time due to the natural process of aging. The two main components that affect skin laxity are collagen and elastin. 

Collagen is a fibrous, supportive protein that binds cells together. It is also found in bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendon. Collagen production decreases with age, leading to skin wrinkling and sagging. 

Elastin is another structural protein found in connective tissues. Unlike collagen, elastin provides a snapback property that aides stretched structures to return to its original shape. Elastin is commonly found in blood vessels and skin. Loss of elastin decreases skin flexibility and reduces wound healing capabilities.


The skin is the body’s largest organ, and like the other organs, its health is affected by various factors including:

  • Age
  • Harsh weather
  • Pollution
  • UV exposure
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Weight changes
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking

Sometimes, a good diet and a meticulous skin care regime is simply not enough to target skin laxity.
