Skin laxity

Treating Skin Laxity with Collagen Lift

Skin laxity occurs when the skin loses its structural integrity and firmness, causing it to become crepey, droopy and saggy. Typically, the ageing process is the primary cause of skin laxity, as collagen and elastin levels reduce quicker, and the body does not replenish them. Usually, ageing-related drooping begins in the lower face as the jawline becomes less defined and jowls start to sag. Then, the skin laxity may also affect the eyelids, chin and throat. Those who rapidly lose significant amounts of weight, e.g. pregnant women after giving birth, are also more susceptible to skin laxity. This increased risk is because elasticity in the skin does not have time to adapt to the changes. Excess weight can also damage collagen and elastin fibres in your skin; it doesn’t snap back as easy.

Skin Laxity Causes

Skin laxity caused by ageing can be accelerated by other intrinsic and extrinsic factors that destroy collagen and elastin in the skin, such as: diet, lifestyle and sun exposure.

Sun Exposure

Sun exposure is thought to be responsible for between 80-90% of visible signs of ageing on your skin. If you don’t already, you must incorporate sunscreen into your daily skincare routine, with an SPF of 30+. Leaving the skin unprotected in the short term can mean a painful sunburn. In the long-term, the sun will prematurely age the skin, causing loss of skin tone and decreased elasticity.

Lifestyle Factors

Other lifestyle factors, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, can also prematurely age the skin and cause skin laxity. Smoking results in narrowed blood vessels, as nicotine constricts blood flow to the skin. The toxins found in tobacco also reduce collagen and elastin production, making the skin droop and sag. Therefore, giving the skin an aged appearance. Alcohol also accelerates the ageing process by decreasing collagen production within the skin.


Diet is key in keeping the skin firm and youthful. When eaten in excess, processed foods high in refined sugars can contribute to the collagen and elastin degradation process. As sugar enters the blood stream, it binds to a protein that damages collagen and elastin, causing sagging, crepey skin. On the other hand, some foods contain collagen-boosting ingredients perfect for everyday consumption. For example, eating citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons boosts levels of vitamin C in the body, which in turn accelerates collagen production.
As ageing is inevitable, skin laxity is something everyone will face at some point. The factors above are important considerations to prevent the skin from ageing prematurely. A great way to prevent or treat skin laxity is with a radio frequency treatment, which will rebuild collagen in the skin and increase its production.

SkinBase Collagen Lift

SkinBase Collagen Lift (coming soon!) is a non-surgical radio frequency treatment that tightens, tones and sculpts skin. It is an ideal choice for those who want to take steps to prevent sagging skin or want to treat their skin laxity. There is no risk associated with Collagen Lift, so you do not have to worry about any downtime or side effects.

How Does it Work?

The Collagen Lift treatment combats skin laxity by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. It is a seriously effective method of turning back the clock on the skin. Your SkinBase therapist will use a ceramic wand to heat the deeper layers of the skin in the area of concern. The treatment may be a luxurious facial to treat sagging jowls; or a body treatment to firm up the skin elsewhere. The heat within the skin stimulates the body’s natural healing response, boosting the production of collagen and elastin.
Results can be seen from the first session as the increased collagen levels tighten and firm the skin. Sagging skin will become firm again, and fine lines and wrinkles will smooth as the skin plumps from within. We recommend a course of treatments, usually six, to achieve your desired results. As well as instant results, collagen production continues to develop within the skin, allowing visible changes up to three months after your last treatment. Best of all, results can last for up to two years.
