Loose Skin

Introduction to Loose skin

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

As we age the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin reduce making the skin loose, simultaneously soft tissue volume loss along with gravity makes the skin sag downwards. 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. 

This is especially noticeable on the face, a sagging face. Besides loose skin on face one can also have loose belly skin, loose skin on arms, thighs etc. One can also have loose skin after weight loss. How to tighten skin is one common question. People try various skin tightening exercises, natural skin tightening remedies but the long lasting solution is "SKIN TIGHTENING". To get rid of loose skin or to tighten skin after weight loss various modalities are used according to the individual need. 

At Kalpana Aesthetics we evaluate the entire face as a whole and suggest the best customized treatment plan for your face and also other parts of body.  

Factors affecting the skin quality

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

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

Genetic makeup : Shape and position of various parts of the face are 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 accelerates the natural aging process by restricting the blood flow to the skin. This increased aging of the skin and decreased collagen and elastin fibers result in loose wrinkled skin.

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