Crepey skin is skin that becomes much thinner and more fragile, giving it the appearance of crepe paper. You may notice this skin sagging and taking on a very finely wrinkled appearance, though in contrast to usual wrinkles that we notice as we age, these characteristics may cover quite a large area of skin and are commonly noticed under the eyes, where the skin is naturally much more delicate anyway, and on the upper inner under-arm. Years of sun exposure, ageing, environmental factors, weight loss and dehydration all contribute to the development and worsening of this skin concern.
At the heart of it, a loss of collagen and elastin (from one of the factors above) and a decrease in oil production as we age, are the main changes that lead to crepey skin. Oil produced by our skin is essential in maintaining your skin’s natural lipid barrier than seals in moisture and protects it from the elements, therefore losing this barrier means our skin becoming more dehydrated and vulnerable to damage. Crepey skin can come and go for some people, and if this is the case, it is likely that a lack of moisture and dehydration are the main cause of your crepey skin. A thorough consultation with our doctors will help us identify what is the most likely culprit behind your skin concerns and allow us to the target your treatment accordingly.

What our patients really think...
I have always been too scared to get fillers before however, that fear completely disappeared after my first visit.
Dr Sanjay made me feel relaxed (which is challenging enough during Covid!), really listened to my concerns and gave me super clear advice to address my concerns. This ultimately led to me feeling confident in my decision of treatment and extremely happy with the results! I cannot recommend both Dr Sanjay and Dr Zoya highly enough! They are amazing and I will definitely be going back.

The most professional, down to earth, friendly aestheticians I could have wished for. I was pretty hesitant to get anything done to my face as I didn’t want the typical over done ‘instagram’ look. I wasn’t pressured into doing anything outright and was told about all the possible options I could take and the differences between them and what would suit me. I have had two sessions and over that time, I am beyond pleased with the results! Dr Zoya has masterfully kept my face the same but just enhanced and corrected things certain in places.
Would definitely recommend if you want a realistic, subtle, natural yet major improvement to any problem areas.
