Crepey Skin Treatment

Sagging, dry skin on your face and body can leave you feeling self-conscious and like you look older than you feel. At Novuskin, we have treatments that can help reverse and prevent premature aging.

Tighter, firmer, younger-looking skin is in your future!

At Novuskin, it’s possible to prevent and even reverse the look of crepey, dry, sagging skin. Our technology-based, scientific treatments give you real results with no or very little downtime. Our non-invasive facials and body treatments do more than just treat the symptoms of skin laxity. You’ll have healthier skin from the inside out.

No matter your skin type or color, there is a treatment to improve skin laxity that’s right for you.

What Are the Symptoms of Loose Skin?

Skin laxity (sometimes called sagging skin, crepey skin, or loose skin) is when your skin loses its elasticity. Instead of rebounding back firmly into place, it begins to droop and appear wrinkled and thin like crepe paper, and no longer appears tight and smooth.

It’s natural for our skin to lose its elasticity over time. Our youthful, healthy skin is full of collagen and elastin, two of the most important proteins to give our skin firmness. But over time, our body’s protein production slows down. When our skin has fewer collagen and elastin proteins, the skin begins to look aged. Skin laxity is also caused by damage caused by UV exposure (sun damage), smoking, drinking, and poor lifestyle choices like failure to cleanse or care for the skin.

In some instances, pregnancy or weight loss can also cause sagging skin, problems that can be addressed with proper treatment. 

Skin laxity appears as:

  • Sagging, drooping, or loose skin on the face or body
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Dark under eyes with sagging skin
  • Deeper facial folds and lines, especially around the nose and mouth

Where does sagging skin appear on the body?

Skin laxity usually appears as loose skin on the face. Premature aging causes loose eyelids and under eyes, drooping cheeks, and turkey neck. Sagging skin can also appear as body skin laxity. Loose skin may be present on your stomach, upper arms, hands, chest, legs and inner thighs, butt, and even your breasts.

If you’re experiencing skin laxity anywhere on your body, there is help!

Best Treatment for Crepey Skin

While there are some home care options for the treatment of minor skin laxity, these work best at the earliest signs of sagging skin. However, topical creams do little to reverse skin sagging. We use the most advanced, FDA-approved technology and products to help prevent and reverse the skins of sagging, crepey skin, and get back your confidence

    What is crepey skin?

    Crepey skin is a term used to describe when your skin loses its elasticity. Sometimes, it’s called sagging skin, loose skin, or skin laxity. Instead of rebounding back firmly into place, your skin looks droopy and loose, and appears wrinkled and thin like crepe paper.

    What causes crepey skin?

    Crepey skin naturally happens over time because as we age, we stop producing collagen and elastin. These two proteins give our skin its firmness and structure and help it rebound back into place. When our skin has fewer collagen and elastin proteins, the skin begins to look saggy and crepey. 

    Causes of crepey skin include damage from UV exposure (sun damage), smoking, and drinking. It’s also more likely to develop sooner if you don’t regularly moisturize and cleanse your skin. Pregnancy or weight loss can also cause sagging skin, as the skin loses fat that once gave it plumpness. Some people experience loose skin after medical or cosmetic procedures such as liposuction. After lipo, non-invasive treatments like the ones offered at Novuskin can help you regain your skin’s firmness.

    Who typically gets sagging skin?

    After about age 40 (middle age), our collagen and elastin levels begin to decrease. This is around the time most people experience the early stages of sagging skin. You might begin to see fine lines around the mouth and eyes. By age 50, most of us will see signs of aging like sagging cheeks and jowls and lines on the forehead.

    Skin Tightening Recovery Time

    Skin tightening recovery time depends on the type of treatment you choose. Many of our non or minimally-invasive treatments require little to no downtime. Frax Laser or other similar treatments may cause some mild redness or peeling, but you’ll likely be able to return to your regular activities within 24 hours. 

    Your aesthetician will be able to offer you a complete treatment plan and answer all of your questions. At Novuskin, we offer minimally-invasive and non-invasive treatments; that means we don’t use knives and you don’t leave with bruising, stitches, or scars. So you’ll likely return to work or your regular activities right away.

    How long does it take to get rid of crepey skin?

    It’s difficult to give an exact answer for how long it takes to stop crepey skin formation since each person who sees us for their sagging skin is in a different stage of the aging process. If you have minimal sagging and you are just beginning to see the signs of aging, you will need fewer treatments than if you have significant amounts of loose skin.

    Some treatments work more quickly to reduce the signs of aging than others. Other factors include your age, skin tone, and overall health. Generally, the experts at Novuskin can help reduce the look of or stop crepey skin and give you the firmer, tighter look you want in 3-12 treatments.

    Does it hurt?

    Whether tightening loose skin hurts or not depends on the treatment plan you choose. All of our treatments are non or minimally-invasive, but some treatments do cause some pain. For example, laser treatments can cause pain during the procedure. However, a topical anesthetic can be applied which makes the treatment much more manageable. Other treatments we offer are generally comfortable and pain free.


    Because Novuskin offers many treatments to help reverse the signs of aging, saggy skin, there is more than one way to take care of your skin after your session. Please know our aestheticians will advise you on how to best care for your skin.

    What To Do After Your Procedure

    Following your skin tightening procedure, you’ll want to make sure you drink a lot of water. You should also protect your skin with an SPF of 30-50 (everyday!), especially if you have had peels or laser treatments. Keep your skin clean and hydrated and follow the instructions given by your aesthetician.

    What Not To Do After Your Procedure

    Following your procedure, make sure you don’t go into direct sunlight without protection. Also, if you’ve had laser treatments or peels, be sure to stay away from home chemical peels, exfoliators, and retinols until your aesthetician tells you it is safe.

    What To Expect After Skin Laxity Treatment

    Depending on your treatment plan, you may notice your skin is a little bit red or sore following your treatment. In most cases, this fades within a few hours to a few days. If you have more aggressive laser treatments, you may experience some skin peeling, although this is unlikely.

    Most people notice some immediate results following their treatment, but results are cumulative, so as you progress through your treatment plan, you’ll notice your skin becoming increasingly less saggy.

    Is skin tightening treatment safe? What are the side effects and contraindications?

    Skin tightening treatments are very safe. There are very few side effects to treatments. 

    Side Effects

    Generally, you may experience some pain during laser treatments, but other non-invasive forms of treatment do not cause any pain. Redness and mild swelling may be present following your treatment, but generally dissipate within a few hours to a few days.


    Contraindications to treatment depend on your specific skin tone and type and are dependent on the treatment you choose. Because of this, your aesthetician will talk to you about your health history and treatment options. In some cases, treatment may be contraindicated if you:

    • Have or have had cancer
    • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Have active acne, rosacea, or other skin conditions
    • Have sunburn on the treatment area
    • Are suffering from an active rash or broken skin
    • Have any disease that may be stimulated by heat (such as herpes)
    • Have skin-related autoimmune diseases
    • Have active skin lesions
    • Have a pacemaker or similar implanted electronic devices
    • Have metal implants around the treatment area
