Crepey Skin: Solutions From Experts

Are you always struggling with crepey skin? Many think that there is nothing we can do to help our skin once it has that crepey, dry, and fragile texture. But, in reality, there are actually ways to address these concerns. 

In fact, at Phases Skin Care and Laser Center, we actually have several options for crepey skin treatment! Firmer, smoother skin can be on the horizon for you, and it all starts with the right approach. 

Crepey Skin Causes

Your Environment

Oftentimes, one’s environment can significantly affect their skin condition and how it ages. For example, if a patient spends a lot of time in the sun, then they may be more prone to a crepey skin texture. This is because the sun’s UV rays harm the skin’s surface, leaving a more fragile layer on top. 

Fun fact—extensive sun exposure can also cause skin cancer, as these UV rays continually weaken and damage the skin.

 

So, not only can too much UV exposure cause you to need a crepey skin treatment, but a history of smoking or low nutrition quality can also have a similar effect. . There may not be a single cause, but instead a culmination of several factors and influences that can impact the health of your skin.

Genetics

Other times, someone seeking a crepey skin treatment may simply be dealing with the results of their genetics. If your parents or grandparents have dealt with dry, weakened skin, it’s possible that you could endure the same. 

Preventative treatments can help maintain the healthy, youthful skin you’re looking to keep, or other services can bring back its previous appearance. 

Areas of Your Body We Can Treat

As more and more birthdays pass us by, we see our skin start to lose laxity and firmness. For the most part, wherever you have your crepey skin, we will be able to help you. Hands, arms, legs, neck—you name it!

Hands & Arms

Have you noticed crepey skin on your hands and arms? This is natural as we age. You might notice some wrinkles around the top of your hand going onto your wrist, or see some loose skin when you move your arms. 

All of this is to be expected, but there are things we can do about it!

Upper Leg Area

You might even notice some loose skin around your knees or upper legs. Not only can frequent movement in general cause wrinkles in skin, but the knees are a high-impact area as they support your body weight, so this causes the skin to see significant stress over time. 

Solutions We Provide for You

Ulthera

One treatment that can help crepey skin is an ultrasound therapy that focuses on correcting fine lines as well as smoothing loose skin. 

Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, chin, arms, and brows. This procedure uses a micro-focused ultrasound to address loose skin and treat wrinkles.

 

To counteract the aging process that causes you to need crepey skin treatments, the Ultherapy device encourages the production of collagen and elastin. It focuses on delivering mainstream ultrasound energy mildly deep into the skin to heat the tissues. This heat encourages your body to produce more collagen in the treated area, which leads to stronger, healthier skin.

One of the best benefits of Ulthera is that it is a non-invasive procedure. This means no incisions and no anesthesia. 

Unlike many med spa and medical center laser treatments, Ultherapy doesn’t target melanin, so it is safe for all skin types. You also will most likely not need any downtime following your treatment.

RF Microneedling

Microneedling with radiofrequency, or RF, helps us reduce wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and smaller areas of loose skin. It can also help with crepey skin! 

We like to say that RF microneedling is an investment in your skin’s long-term care. Now, this isn’t necessarily referring to the price, but more because the results of it occur gradually over time. Most patients begin noticing an overall improvement in texture and crepiness about 3 to 6 months after their last treatment.

So don’t be worried if you don’t see immediate results after your treatment. After the micro-sized needles make the small wounds in your skin, your body’s natural healing response leads to greater collagen production and overall rejuvenation. Over time, you can begin to see the improvements in your skin you’re looking for. .

Skincare

Now, whenever it comes to something you can do at home, skincare is a valuable piece to maintaining treatment results, as well as trying to get results on your own before diving into a treatment right away. 

Here at Phases, we have many lines of skincare products to choose from, but for a crepey skin treatment, we recommend one line especially, and this one line has so many product options! 

 

One is Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment with TriHex Technology®. Alastin was created to address all of those fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin issues we see as we get older. Unfortunately, crepey skin is one of those things that does come with age, or those environmental factors that cause our skin to react like its aging. 

So whether it’s true aging or environmental aging, Alastin can help! We have one product in particular that we love for that crepey skin: the  Alastin Restorative Neck Complex with TriHex Technology®. This kit comes with all of Alastin’s favorite products to target crepey skin. Try it today!

Controlling Factors

Another way you can try to prevent crepey skin is through the actions you take regarding the things around you. Like mentioned above, your environment and habits can play a big role in making yourself more prone to crepey skin. 

Sometimes, it just comes down to your genetics, but you can try to avoid excessive UV ray exposure by limiting your time under the sun and wearing proper SPF. Breaking a habit of smoking can also benefit your skin.  Doing both can largely contribute to maintaining a non-crepey appearance. This might even limit your need for crepey skin treatment later in life. 

But if you have passed that line of being able to prevent it, no worries. At Phases, we can meet with you to see what can help you the best!
