What Causes Loose Facial Skin?
Typically, loose facial skin is the result of both the natural aging process and the effect of external environmental factors. Over time, the epidermis, or uppermost layer of the skin, begins to thin and facial fat recedes, leaving the face looking less defined and youthful. The sebaceous glands also start to produce less oil, making the skin more dry, uneven, and wrinkle-prone.
While biological changes play a large role in the development of loose facial skin, external factors can also determine how quickly your skin loses its tightness and tone. Extended exposure to the sun can speed up the process of aging and cause hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles to form on the face. Fortunately, taking precautions like applying a daily sunscreen and wearing sunglasses or a hat on extra bright days can help slow how quickly the facial skin becomes loose.
How can I Treat It?
At the Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center, we’re proud to offer our patients a comprehensive variety of treatments that can tighten loose facial skin. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for patients that have only small areas of loose facial skin. These injectables are entirely non-invasive and involve little to no downtime. Exilis Elite, Skin Tyte, Thermage, and Ulthera treatments are great for patients with moderate to severe skin laxity that don’t want to undergo an invasive, surgical procedure. For individuals interested in correcting their loose facial skin in a dramatic way, Dr. Shalini Gupta often recommends our practice’s customizable EasyLift facelift procedure.
Before undergoing any treatment for loose facial skin, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Shalini Gupta. During this appointment, Dr. Gupta will examine the condition of your face and ask you about your treatment goals. Using this information, she will help you decide which treatment is right for you.
