How to Combat Crepey Skin Without Surgery

Have you started to see changes in your skin’s texture? Maybe you’ve sensed that the skin on your inner arms or thighs isn’t as firm as it used to be. Or perhaps you’re beginning to notice how delicate areas like your neck or under your eyes seem more fragile and finely wrinkled than before. If this sounds familiar, you’re certainly not alone. Many of us will develop crepey skin as we age. It’s a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating when you see your skin losing its youthful glow. If you’re wondering about non-surgical solutions, there are several options available that don’t require invasive procedures. At the Aesthetic Associates Centre, we offer various treatment options to help rejuvenate and restore your skin’s youthful appearance.

Why Do I Have Crepey Skin?

Our skin undergoes quite a transformation over time. One common change is the development of what we call “crepey skin.” But what does that mean? It’s skin that looks wrinkled and thin, similar in appearance to crepe paper (the same paper used for birthday streamers).

Think of your skin as a thriving city. In our youth, this city was active in production and repair operations, thanks to plentiful collagen and elastin—these proteins keep our skin firm and elastic. As we age, activity in this city slows down. The factories producing collagen and elastin aren’t as efficient as they used to be, leading to a decrease in these crucial proteins.

Meanwhile, our skin undergoes other changes. It loses fat, which serves as padding beneath the surface and helps retain moisture. As a result, the skin starts to thin, sag, and feel looser, eventually appearing deflated and wrinkled.

Finally, sun exposure also plays a major role. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the collagen in our skin. Regular sun exposure speeds up this aging process, causing the skin to age faster than it would naturally.

Combatting Crepey Skin: How Our MedSpa Can Help

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractionated laser resurfacing is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for crepey skin. This technique uses a laser to deliver a series of tiny, microscopic light beams to the skin. These beams create controlled damage that prompts the skin to heal naturally. As the skin heals, it increases collagen production. Over time, this boosted collagen helps to thicken the skin and reduce the appearance of crepey textures, resulting in a smoother, more youthful look.

Chemical Peels and Facials

Chemical peels, particularly the Jessner’s peel, and treatments like the TriaWave MediFacial are excellent for addressing sagging and crepey skin. We apply the Jessner’s peel to the skin, and the solution gently exfoliates the top layers to reveal fresher, smoother skin beneath. This mild yet effective peel is particularly beneficial for delicate areas, like under the eyes. It stimulates collagen production, removes dead cells, and promotes the regeneration of new skin. The result? Tighter, rejuvenated skin.

Another option, the TriaWave MediFacial, uses microcurrents to lift and firm the skin. This innovative technology enhances muscle tone and skin elasticity, effectively combating the sagging that contributes to a crepey appearance. The treatment delivers immediate results and long-term benefits catered to your goals.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a powerful technique to transform crepey skin. Our MedSpa utilizes Morpheus8, which combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency technology. This advanced treatment involves tiny needles that puncture the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process, while radiofrequency energy adds heat to further stimulate skin tightening. This dual action significantly boosts collagen production, essential for skin firming. Morpheus8 is particularly effective for treating areas like the arms and thighs, where skin may become loose or wrinkled.

Dermal Fillers

Finally, our FDA-approved and cruelty-free dermal fillers, such as Sculptra®, offer a non-surgical solution for combating sagging skin. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and works differently from other fillers by stimulating the body’s own collagen production rather than just filling in spaces. When injected, it gradually increases the volume beneath the skin’s surface, providing a natural lifting effect. This process tightens sagging skin and enhances the overall texture, making it an excellent option for those seeking improvements to fine lines or deep wrinkles. Sculptra is particularly effective in areas prone to sagging, such as the cheeks and jawline.
