Introduction To Loose Skin

Loose skin can be a problem for anyone, and is a source of anguish for many; skin all over the body can sag and appear loose, depending on the cause of the issue.

Loose skin is natural part of ageing and includes the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin that leaves it less plump and firm.

Weight gain/fluctuating weight – skin stretches as you gain weight, and if you lose it without exercising, or lose it too quickly, skin does not have the opportunity to shrink back and hangs loosely. This can vary depending on how long you carried weight for.

To find out what options are available for you, book a no obligation consultation at PHI Clinic with one of our highly trained clinicians.

Other Factors To Consider

Genetics – loose skin can be partly hereditary, as elasticity is passed on through genes.

Lack of muscle tone – this can give the skin a loose look, as underdeveloped muscles leave a ‘space’ between the muscle and skin.

Diet – lack of protein can cause skin to dry out, get wrinkles earlier in life, and lose elasticity.

Pregnancy – during pregnancy your hormones fluctuate, and the uterus expands, both leading to loose skin.

Smoking – chemicals in smoke destroy collagen and dry out the skin, making it more likely to become loose.

Sun exposure – UV rays break down collagen and elastin, that keep skin firm, allowing it to sink and sag.

Poor skin care – if it becomes dehydrated, the fatty molecules in skin become flat, which reduces firmness and creates sagging.
