Changes in skin texture are an inevitable part life. An area of concern that many patients have is crepey skin. After age thirty, every increasing in decade, our bodies produce 10-20% less collagen and less elastin resulting in reduced moisture, firmness, and suppleness. These unwelcome changes in our skin can result in deep sources of insecurity for many of us.
There are many cosmetic concerns resulting from lower amounts of collagen in the skin — from lines to wrinkles and hollowing — but one that seems to happen regardless of one’s facial contours is crepey skin. This unmistakable parched, thin, and sagging skin can occur anywhere on the body. For many of our patients, crepey skin becomes a significant concern when it occurs under the eyes, on the neck and décolleté area because this skin is the most visible.
Additional Causes of Crepey Skin
In addition to age, crepey skin can also be caused by losing a significant amount of weight and/or sun damage. To address this concern in her patients, Dr. Quibell may employ one or even a combination of treatments.*
What are the Treatments?
Depending on the area of concern, Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers may be used to plump and hydrated the area.* Another option includes gentle lasers designed to renew the skin by stimulating collagen production.* For larger areas with crepey skin, radio frequency treatments can help tighten and improve skin laxity on most areas of the body.*
