As we age, the skin naturally loses the collagen and elastin support that keeps young skin plump and firm, causing the skin’s movement to produce the fine wrinkles we usually see.
Both the ageing process and lifestyle choices, like sun exposure, are contributing factors to this condition, as well as skin hydration and weight gain/fluctuating weight; skin stretches as you gain weight, and if you lose it too quickly, skin hangs more loosely.
At London City Skin Clinic, we will carefully assess the cause of your crepey skin and recommend a treatment programme that suits you long term, which may include the use of medical grade skincare or injectable treatments such as Profhilo.
Frequently Asked Questions
At London City Skin Clinic, we will carefully assess the cause of your crepey skin and recommend a treatment programme that suits you long term, which may include the use of medical grade skincare (Cosmeceuticals) or injectable treatments such as Profhilo or Skinboosters.
· Medical grade skincare – Using active ingredients to protect your skin and help prevent further damage as well as starting the process of cell repair from the basal layers of your skin
· Profhilo – Using a process called ‘Bioremodelling’, which is an innovative approach to anti-aging. Profhilo counteracts skin laxity of the face and in areas traditionally difficult to treat, such as the neck, décolleté, hands and arms. Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA) and is injected into the skin to stimulate 4 different types of collagen, which has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue, combined with a deep hydration effect.
· Skinboosters contain a unique form of stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) to plump and hydrate the skin, and can be injected into the skin in areas of concern.
