Crepe skin affects people of all skin types and is surprisingly common. Learn about our new procedure to help address this common skin concern.
Crepey skin is a condition that affects the skin to lose elastin. While crepey skin is similar to wrinkles, it typically will present in larger areas of the body as much thinner, fragile skin. The skin may feel loose and potentially sag in certain areas.
Contrary to popular belief, age is not the largest factor! The main cause of crepey skin and loss of elastin is sun damage. Constant UV exposure causes the fibers in the skin that allow it to stretch and return to its normal position to break down, which results in skin laxity. Other factors that affect the onset of crepey skin include age, loss of collagen, extreme weight loss, or lack of moisture.
