What causes crepey skin?
Changes in skin texture are an inevitable part life and an area of concern that many patients have is crepey skin. After age thirty, for every increasing in a decade, our bodies produce 10-20% less collagen and less elastin resulting in reduced moisture, firmness and suppleness. These unwelcome changes in our skin can result in deep sources of insecurity for many of us.
There are many cosmetic concerns resulting from lower amounts of collagen in the skin, but one that seems to happen regardless of one’s facial contours is crepey skin. This unmistakable parched, thin and sagging skin can occur anywhere on the body. For many of our patients, crepey skin becomes a significant concern when it occurs under the eyes, on the neck and décolleté area because this skin is the most visible.
In addition to age, crepey skin can also be caused by losing a significant amount of weight and/or sun damage. To address this concern, Dr. Pamela Mondorf may use one or a combination of treatments at our clinic in Bend, Oregon.*
