Why does some skin need tightening?
As we age it is very common for our skin to lose some of its elasticity. A loss of elasticity basically means that the skin has lost its ability to snap back when stretched, it no longer has spring which may cause it to sag. This loose skin then creates an appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. All of this happens because our collagen production slows down and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has less spring. The skin becomes less supple because its water content is reduced and it loses its plumpness because the fat cells under the skin start to deplete. Loss of skin elasticity is a natural part of ageing, is mostly thanks to our genes and is generally more common in people who have had a lot of sun exposure. At The Dermatology Institute of Victoria we have several treatment options available that work to tighten the skin.
