Lax Skin

A picture is worth a thousand words – especially those that highlight how how our skin is aging. When both subtle and not-so-subtle changes begin to appear in our faces and bodies, Cutis is here to offer state-of-the-art solutions.

Visible Effects

Skin laxity creates unwanted shadowing on our face and can make us look tired and old. Lax skin is a result of loss of facial volume, which contributes to hollowness of the eyes, temples, and cheeks, drooping brows and eyelids, deep folds extending from our nose to the corners of our mouth and sagging skin along and under the jawline. The body is no exception - loose skin on the tummy, arms and thighs can make us feel very self conscious.

Underlying Causes

Such signs of aging are triggered by a combination of elements, some of which are beyond our control, such as genetic factors, while others can be controlled through lifestyle choices. For instance, sun exposure is known to cause 90% of the skin damage and symptoms we attribute to visible aging. As we age, our skull shrinks, subcutaneous fat dissipates and our skin thins - the skin has nowhere to go but down.


Tightening loose skin was once reserved only for the realm of cosmetic surgery, however advancements in non-invasive procedures have opened up a huge range of options to address lax skin. Neuromodulators such as BOTOX COSMETIC ® treatments, dermal fillers, facial fat transfer, Fraxel® re:pair laser skin resurfacing, skin tightening with BBL Skin Tyte, and the latest technology using Helium Plasma Resurfacing and Cutis' minimally invasive face lift are among the recommended treatment solutions Cutis has at its disposal. As a centre for facial cosmetic surgery, dermatology and advanced skincare, Cutis is equipped to address concerns with lax skin safely and effectively through customized treatment planning.
