Skin Laxity

By: Dr. James D. Fontaine

As we age, loss of elastin and collagen is associated with skin laxity that results in wrinkles and sagging skin. Our bodies decrease production of collagen and elastin as we get older. This can be exacerbated by sun exposure, poor nutrition and dehydration. To help prevent acceleration of skin laxity and improve appearance, it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure and use a high-quality sunscreen daily. In addition, pay attention to proper nutrition and use prescription-grade skin care products daily. When topical treatment is not taking care of your skin laxity, you may be a candidate for stimulation of collagen and elastin production with our laser and radiofrequency skin tightening devices.
