AFYA Skin and Body Clinic has a variety of treatments meant to tighten and firm the skin’s matrix. Skin Laxity on the face and body is one of the major complaints women and men have about aging skin. The laxity is due to a decreasing number of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. Skin laxity is the result of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Natural aging, genetics, diet, stress, lifestyle, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, exposure to environmental toxins, alcohol and smoking may all contribute, resulting in loss of collagen and elastin in our skin.

Finding the optimal treatment depends on the severity of your skin laxity and your underlying skin tone. There are a number of highly effective treatments that can tighten lax skin on the face and both, and the sooner you act the more you will prevent further laxity from occurring.* One of the treatments we recommend would be Forma, MicroPen Microneedling, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma and Fractora.
