Lax skin (loose sagging skin) along with folds and wrinkles on the face and body typically can be the cause of the aging process or sun exposure. In addition, rapid loss of weight can also result in lax skin. There are a number of Lax skin treatments available in Victoria at Rosenthal Clinic including: Chemical Peels, Microneedling, or BodyFX.

Due to aging, the loss of the protein in connective tissues, known as elastin, can cause stretched skin to retract. Similarly, the reduction in the amount of collagen and moisture-holding proteins will result in the loosening and stretching of skin.

The effects of photo aging or sun damage speed up this natural process of increased laxity of the skin. You can minimize sun damage with the use of a UVA/UVB sunscreen daily. In addition, choose skin products carefully that contain retinoids, and adequate amounts of Vitamin C and E.  The effects of constant exposure to the sun are cumulative and may not be apparent at first.

Contact Rosenthal Clinic, in Victoria BC to further discuss which of these lax skin treatments would be suited for you.
