Crepey Skin

Crepey skin is finely wrinkled and thin skin. In some cases, it may also appear loose or sagging. The condition resembles common wrinkles, but it covers larger areas, becoming thinner and more fragile. Crepey skin condition mostly occurs on the upper inner arms, elbows, knees, under the eyes, the neck and décolleté.

Crepey skin condition is commonly caused by sun damage. Other causes include weight loss, lack of moisture, ageing and smoking or a combination of these factors.

Collagen and elastin in the skin are broken down by the sun. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping the skin free of wrinkles and tight. Breaking down of these fibres makes the skin thinner, looser and wrinkly.

Hormonal changes result in a reduction in the body’s natural oil production. Hence the skin becomes dry and consequently crepey.  The process of ageing results in a decrease in collagen and elastin production. Smoking and stress can make the signs of ageing more pronounced.

There are various treatments for crepey skin at our clinic. Surgical and non-invasive procedures are available. The most common procedures include Ulthera, and laser treatments. Ulthera tightens the skin and supporting tissues by heating the underlying skin tissues using ultrasound.

Profhilo, injected twice, a month apart, immediately under the skin is transforming skin of the face, neck and other areas of the body, such as the skin above the knees and elbows. It is acting on the skin itself and not providing volume.

Volume loss will require conventional filler such as Juvederm or fat harvested from elsewhere is injected to provide long-lasting volume and to improve skin Quality.

It is recommended that you consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic to assess your skin type and the level of recovery we can offer as a solution to your problem areas.
