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

Lax skin contributes to a deepening of expression lines and uneven skin texture. The loss of facial volume results in hollowness of the eyes and cheeks, drooping brows and eyelids and sagging skin along and under the jawline. The body is no exception - loose skin on the tummy, arms and thighs can cause embarrassment and reduce bodily self confidence.

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.


Tightening loose skin was once reserved for the realm of cosmetic surgery. While face lift surgery may still be recommended in the case of elastosis, advancements in non-invasive procedures have opened up the range of corrective options to address lax skin. Neuromodulators such as BOTOX COSMETIC ® treatments, dermal fillers including JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM® Voluma™ and Sculptra®, facial implants, facial fat transfer, Fraxel® re:pair and Fraxel® re:store DUAL laser skin resurfacing and skin tightening with Ellman Pelleve or Thermage® CPT 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.
