As we age, the body’s ability to produce collagen decreases. Elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has a little less spring. Over the years, the accumulative effects of intrinsic biological ageing and extrinsic ageing factors such as environmental stress, sun exposure, pollution, poor nutrition will result in the appearance of loose sagging skin and loss of definition of facial contours. The problem is often first noticed by adults in their late thirties to early forties and accelerates after menopause in females.
Mild to moderate skin laxity can be treated using non-surgical procedures such as the FOTONA 4d Skin Tightening
. Advanced skin laxity may require surgery such as a face lift.
