What Causes Loose Skin?

Loose skin develops as a result of a decrease in collagen and elastin in this skin. These proteins help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. When lost, it can cause the skin to become saggy and loosened. 

Common Causes of Loose Skin

Commonly loose skin can be found on the face, neck, arms, stomach. buttocks and legs. The skin often can loosen due to being overstretched through a significant period of time such as at the time of pregnancy. Weight loss and ageing can also result in loose skin. 

The common causes of loose skin include:

  • Significant or rapid weight loss
  • Post-pregnancy
  • Ageing
  • Rapid loss of muscle volume

The skin, unlike muscles, does not contract. Therefore once the skin has loosened, the only means of tightening is by stimulating the cells responsible for producing collagen and elastin fibres.
