Advanced techniques in Orange County CA get to roots of skin laxity

Skin laxity refers to sagging tissues. While some inherited connective tissue disorders are to blame, the roots of skin laxity in Orange County CA patients are many; these factors add up over time. No one is immune to the effects of skin laxity, but advanced technologies and techniques at Arta Dermatology in Newport Beach mean you don’t have to live with an appearance that doesn’t align with how you feel, or with skin that looks older than your years.

Rooted in age-related changes

Adults lose collagen at an estimated rate of around 1 percent each year. This structural protein is vital to the health, feel, and function of your skin. Collagen is plentiful in younger skin, but degrades over time. Your body also produces less collagen naturally as you get older. The effects of gravity, the loss or redistribution of superficial and deep fat, and diminishing skeletal support take their toll on firm, flexible, youthful-looking skin, and alter facial shape and contours.

Rooted in lifestyle, environmental choices

Your skin can age prematurely. Sun exposure speeds up “intrinsic” structural and physiological changes, resulting in dreaded loose and sagging tissues. Photoaging is one of many “extrinsic” factors responsible for lax skin. Exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun and artificial sources such as tanning beds is considered the primary cause of early skin aging. UV light breaks down collagen and elastin fibers Due to these threats, dermatologists like Dr. Arta Farshidi emphasize preventive measures like wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen and sun avoidance.

Smoking and exposure to toxins and pollutants are among other extrinsic factors that accelerate skin laxity. Reverse the ravages of time and the environment without surgery.
