Skin Tightening

skin sagging

As the years go by, gravity takes its toll on our bodies and our skin is no exception. When it comes to our skin, the effects of aging are sometimes less than desirable. Often, age shows itself with skin laxity that leaves people embarrassed and frustrated. At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we understand how agonizing skin laxity can be. Our skincare experts provide useful information and effective skin tightening treatments through the use of Thermage® for individuals suffering from this condition.

What Causes Skin Laxity?

Before treating lax skin, it is important to understand what causes this condition. Over time, the skin’s underlying structure begins to break down, robbing our faces of their definition, youthful plumpness, and resilience. As we age, our skin loses its ability to renew itself as quickly as it once did, and the skin starts to droop and hang. This may also make your pores look larger, as if they’ve been stretched out of shape.

There are two types of skin aging that can cause skin laxity, intrinsic and extrinsic.  Intrinsic aging is the natural part of the aging process where we slow down production of elastin and collagen.  Extrinsic factors include sleeping positions, smoking, and repetitive facial expressions can prematurely age your skin.  See below for more factors that can lead to sagging skin.
