WHAT IS LOOSE SKIN?
The appearance of loose skin can cause a significant degree of concern, affecting a person’s emotional state, as well as being uncomfortable and perceived as unattractive. Loose skin often appears to hang off the body, commonly affecting places such as: upper arms, chest, back, stomach, thighs and knees. The appearance of loose skin often disrupts the smooth contouring of the body, causing certain areas to look less toned and out-of-shape.
WHAT CAUSES LOOSE SKIN?
Loose skin is often the result of the skin having been overstretched. Although the skin can usually bounce back to its original state, when it has been stretched over a prolonged period, it can be more difficult to retract. A lengthy period of weight gain, and less elasticity due to ageing can often be what contributes to the skin’s lacking ability to bounce back.
Losing a significant amount of weight can be beneficial for a person’s health and well-being, but in many cases loose / saggy skin is left behind. Pregnancy is a very common cause of loose skin on the stomach, as the belly has both grown and reduced in size over a short space of time.
