Thinning of Skin

Crepey Skin

You can address thin, crepey skin on both the face and body through powerful topical skincare and professional in-office treatments. Discover effective strategies to boost collagen and elastin production for a rejuvenated, more youthful complexion.

Facial Skin

At Direct Aesthetics, we understand the challenges associated with crepey skin and offer advanced treatments to address this concern effectively.

Crepey skin, characterized by its thin, wrinkled texture resembling crinkled paper, can develop due to various factors such as aging, sun damage, genetics, and loss of collagen and elastin.

Fortunately, we provide a range of advanced treatments tailored to address crepey skin and rejuvenate your complexion. From innovative cosmetic injectables to specialized skincare regimens, our expert team is committed to helping you achieve smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

Why does skin get crepey?

Crepey skin is characterized by its thin, delicate texture and fine wrinkles, often resembling crepe paper. It may also appear loose or saggy in some areas. While it can develop anywhere on the face and body, common areas of occurrence include under the eyes, inner sides of the upper arms, backs of the hands, and above the knees.

The primary cause of crepey skin is sun damage, which accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin—essential proteins for maintaining skin suppleness and firmness. Aging further exacerbates this condition, as the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin decreases with age.

Factors such as pollution, smoking, and significant fluctuations in weight can also contribute to the development of crepey skin by further degrading collagen levels.

How to treat crepey skin?

Addressing crepey skin requires specialized treatments tailored to improve its texture and appearance. At Direct Aesthetics, we offer a range of advanced in-office procedures aimed at combating this specific concern. Our treatments are carefully selected to target the underlying causes of crepiness, such as loss of collagen and elastin, dehydration, and sun damage.

Injectable Fillers

At Direct Aesthetics, our approach to treating crepey skin begins with targeted wrinkle relaxer injections around the mouth muscles. If patients require additional correction, we utilize Sculptra or dermal fillers to address the issue effectively.

Injectable fillers placed in the dermal layer beneath the skin effectively treat crepey skin by adding immediate volume and smoothness. Certain hyaluronic acid (HA) gels, such as Restylane, not only plump the skin but also stimulate collagen production. Collagen-building injectables like Sculptra are beneficial for smoothing various areas such as cheeks, hands, cleavage, elbows, and knees. HA fillers are reversible, and results typically last from months to years, depending on the product and individual metabolism.

Our focus is on providing personalized treatments that deliver noticeable results and enhance the natural beauty of our clients’ skin. Our experienced team works closely with each client to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs and goals, ensuring optimal results and satisfaction. With our expertise and cutting-edge technologies, you can regain confidence in your skin and achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels effectively exfoliate damaged skin layers and stimulate cell turnover. Our VI Peel utilizes various acids like glycolic and lactic acid, tailored to address concerns such as acne and aging. We’ll recommend the ideal peel for your skin type. The specific acid combination and concentration in VI Peel formulations are customized for desired outcomes.

During treatment, the peel solution is applied and left on for a duration before neutralization. Following treatment, expect peeling and flaking, requiring gentle cleansing and moisturizing to minimize irritation. Once old skin cells shed, you’ll reveal brighter, smoother skin.

Depending on peel type and strength, multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.
