Loose Skin

Introduction to Loose skin

Loose skin is the hallmark of aging. Most of the unwanted changes that occur during aging is due to loosening of the skin.

As we age the collagen and elastin ligaments of the skin reduce making the skin loose, simultaneously soft tissue volume loss along with gravity makes the skin sag downwards. This is especially noticeable in the face.

A simple test is to pull the skin and let it fall back in place. If it snaps right back it is alright but if does not and feels stretchy then we classify it as loose. 

At Kalpana Aesthetics we evaluate the entire face as a whole and suggest the best cutomised treatment plan for you.  

Factors affecting the skin quality

Sun exposure : The most important cause of skin damage and premature aging is the UV ight exposure from sunlight. It is adviseable to use sunscreen and protect skin from too much sunlight eexposure.

Aging : During the natural process of aging the skin gradually looses collagen and elastin fibres which give strength elasticity and tightness to the skin. 

Genetic makeup : shape and position of various parts of the face is also linked to our genetic traits. like the shape of the nose, eye color, eyebrows, lips etc.

Muscle Activity : Aging of the skin along with muscle activity creates various wrinkles and distortion of the youthful anatomy.

Smoking : smoking accelarates the natural aging process by restricting the blood flow to the skin. this increased aging of the skin as decreased collagen and elastin fibres resulting in loose wrinkles skin.

Nutrition : Foods rich in anti-oxidants like salads and fruits slow the process of aging.
