Thinning Skin

Increase your skin's elasticity


Thinning Skin

Thinning skin or thin skin tears, bruises and or breaks easily because it is fragile. Thin skin has an appearance like a tissue paper, also known as crepey skin.  

Aging and prolonged sun exposure can lead to reduced collagen and elastin creating thinning skin on the face and body. Prolonged corticosteroid use also thins the skin. Eating collagen supplements doesn’t help. The collagen molecule is too large to absorb if you swallow it.

Eating the right foods that are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids helps the body make more collagen. Stimulating your own collagen to grow through skincare with active ingredients and doctor recommended laser and skin treatments is your best solution.

Common causes of thinning skin include:

  • UV Exposure 
  • Genetics 
  • Lifestyle, not getting enough exercise, poor dieting, smoking, and use of alcohol 
  • Certain Medications such as blood thinners and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve)
  • A low in fresh fruit and vegetables diet


How to Get Rid of Thinning Skin?

To get rid of thinning skin, you have non-surgical cosmetic and home treatment options. Cosmetic treatments like microneedling, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and intense pulsed light therapy help increase your skin’s elasticity and suppleness. 

Home treatments for thin skin include dermatologist recommended skincare products with retinoids. Also, taking nutritional supplements can also help.
