Excessive Skin

Sagging skin on the face and body is often associated with the loss of fat. The deterioration of collagen and elastin in the dermis also contributes to the loose appearance of extra skin. At SKIN Clinics, we offer the technology to help reflect how you’re feeling on the inside, on the outside!

Get The Facts

Excess skin typically shows up as extra skin on your stomach, under your arms, and on your legs. While anyone can experience excessive skin, it’s more likely to occur in people as they age or who have lost a significant amount of weight. Our skin makes up about 15% of your total body weight and the average adult has nearly 21 square feet of skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ + How do I know if it’s Excessive Skin or Excessive Fat?

Excessive Skin is easy to pinch, and you’ll feel like the tips of your thumb and forefinger are almost touching. It’s also easy to pull loose skin about 1 inch or more away from your body. Body fat, however, is much harder to pinch together or pull away from the skin.

+ + How can I tighten my Excessive Skin?

With our non-surgical Laser Skin Tightening treatment, we can effectively tighten moderately loose skin, laxity, or crepey skin on the face, neck, and body. This treatment helps patients improve their appearance and postpone the need for surgery. However, in most cases, surgery may be suggested for large amounts of excessive skin.

+ + How can I prevent Excessive Skin?

Vitamin A helps to nourish the lower layer of skin and improve cell turnover, Vitamin C preserves and protects skin-firming fibers such as collagen and elastin, and Vitamin E safeguards skin from certain types of damage. To gain this protection for your skin, eat more leafy greens and colorful fruits and vegetables.
