Facial skin laxity


What is it ?

Skin laxity affects several areas of the face. Whether on the forehead, eyelids, cheeks, facial oval, neck or décolleté, the skin loses its elasticity, volume and density over time and with certain lifestyle habits.

What are the causes?

As skin laxity is mainly a sign of aging, it is caused by the loss of collagen and elastin, as well as by the slowing down of skin cell regeneration. Several origins can be identified for these:

Sun exposure

Exposure to the sun, especially if not accompanied by UV protection, leads to an increase in melanin production, a reduction in collagen and elastin production, a thickening of certain areas of the skin and clearly promotes dryness. Gradually, the structure of the skin changes and it becomes visibly less firm.

Bad lifestyle habits

Tobacco and/or alcohol use, stress, lack of physical exercise, a diet rich in sugar...As we know, lifestyle habits have a direct impact on our health, but also on that of our skin. In order to promote the production of collagen and elastin and to allow our skin to better protect itself against external aggressors (UV rays, wind, pollution...), it is essential to pay particular attention to our lifestyle!

Hormonal changes

Adequate levels of estrogens, testosterone and progesterone, among others, are necessary for proper tissue function. A dysfunction or imbalance in the levels of these hormones increases skin dehydration and therefore the loss of tone.

Genetics

In addition to the origins listed above, not everyone ages in the same way. The cause: genetic predisposition! Indeed, the skin's capacity for hydration, elasticity and anti-oxidation also depends on our genes.
