What Causes Skin Laxity?
Skin laxity, or loose, sagging skin, occurs for a variety of reasons, including age, genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits such as smoking and poor nutrition. As we age, the body lowers the production of the proteins collagen and elastin, which are responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. Other factors that can contribute to skin laxity include significant weight loss, repetitive facial movements, and the effects of gravity.
