Crepey skin is a common condition usually caused by over exposure to the sun, by sunbeds or other forms of ultraviolet light.
About this condition
Ultraviolet light breaks down the elastin in our skin, resulting in it appearing thin and wrinkled, like a crepe or crepe paper. This condition is also a common sign of ageing, in particular due to weight loss and to loss of volume in the skin’s structure as we get older. Crepey skin usually appears on the face, neck, hands, arms and any other areas of the body that have frequently been exposed to UV light. For most people it will start to appear from our 40’s onwards, but where UV exposure has been more severe, it can form in our 20’s and 30’s.
We offer a number of options to treat this condition, all of which will be discussed with you prior to any treatment taking place. These may include dermal fillers, LPG Endermologie, Radiofrequency, Venus Versa, Profhilo, PRP, mesotherapy and PDO thread lifts.
