Skin elasticity is what determines whether or not your skin will “snap” back into place with the rest of your body. Your skin elasticity is determined by your age, genetics, and how long you might have had excess weight for.

Collagen is an important factor in the elasticity of your skin, and its part of the natural process of our bodies to lose collagen and elastin as we age. Even by the time you turn 20, your collagen production declines by 1% every year while your skin’s thickness decreases 20% every 10 years. Excess weight, aging, and genetics are just some of the factors that can affect your collagen and elastin production.


Sagging skin can create self esteem problems, harming you physically and mentally. You can cause rashes, infections, and mental health problems.

Loose skin on your body can make getting in shape difficult. Having the excess weight hanging from your body can truly affect your center of gravity, making balancing difficult. Even as you sweat, perspiration can get trapped in the folds of the skin, which can lead to irritation and rashes.

Another common area we see loose skin in Huntington is on the face. This can lead to different mental struggles. Sagging skin on the face can make us seem tired, sad, or in distress. It can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and low self-esteem. For those who suffer with saggy skin on the body, it can even cause relapse in weight gain for many that suffer from similar feelings.


As we mentioned, skin elasticity is determined by your collagen production. Using the BTL Exilis here at Long Island Body Sculpting in Huntington, it uses an ultrasound energy to penetrate the skin and causing your body to rapidly produce a significant amount of collagen. This creates a tighter and smoother look to your skin.
