Treatment information and recommendations

What is skin laxity?

Skin laxity, also known as skin sagging or skin looseness, refers to a loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin, resulting in a relaxed or droopy appearance. It is a common sign of aging and can occur anywhere on the body but is most noticeable in areas where the skin is naturally thin or prone to stretching, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs

How can skin laxity be effectively treated?

Polynucleotides, often abbreviated as PNs, are long-chain molecules composed of nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA and RNA. In the context of skincare and dermatology, polynucleotides are sometimes used in topical formulations or injected into the skin for their purported anti-aging and skin rejuvenating effects, including the improvement of skin laxity.

The use of polynucleotides in skincare is based on their potential to stimulate cellular regeneration, collagen synthesis, and tissue repair. Here’s how polynucleotides may help address skin laxity:

Stimulating Collagen Production

Polynucleotides may help promote the production of collagen, a protein that provides structural support and firmness to the skin. By increasing collagen synthesis, polynucleotides can help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of sagging or loose skin.

Enhancing Skin Hydration

Polynucleotides have been shown to possess moisturizing properties, helping to hydrate the skin and improve its overall texture and appearance. Adequately hydrated skin is more supple and resilient, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.

Accelerating Wound Healing

Polynucleotides have been studied for their potential to accelerate wound healing and tissue repair. By promoting the regeneration of damaged skin cells and supporting the skin’s natural healing processes, polynucleotides may help improve skin firmness and tightness.

Anti-inflammatory Effects

Inflammatory processes in the skin can contribute to collagen degradation and skin laxity. Polynucleotides have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation and prevent further damage to the skin’s structural integrity.
