Loose skin develops due to three most common causes:
1. Loss of collagen, which is responsible for elasticity
2. Loss and migration of fat, loosening the skin which allows gravity to take its course
3. UV damage from the sun
The key to aging skin is to take care of your skin daily. It is always easier to prevent than to correct.
A very common mistake made by many people is to do absolutely nothing until about age 40 or 50, and then expect that a single office visit will restore their youthful appearance. Unfortunately, that is not true and many people don’t realize that skin in the largest human organ and requires maintenance. Years of sun damage will take years to remove. Please take care of your skin by protecting it from the harmful sun. Apply sun protections, stay in shade, stay hydrated and you will look beautiful.
It’s important to realize that the treatment of choice varies from patient to patient even though they might present with the same issue. The degree of skin laxity, the amount of fat and the hydration of the skin all play an important role in selecting the best treatment option.
In today’s market, patients are looking for the modalities to make them look better almost instantly, without any downtime and no scars and we have to be thankful that the cosmetic surgery market is booming with advances in technology catering to all of these demands.
