When smile lines remain long after a smile has passed, it is one of the many indications that the skin has lost its firmness. In the early stages of aging, these signs are subtle—such as fine lines. In other instances, skin laxity is more obvious—such as jowls and heavy brows. Lax skin is caused by the degradation of the connective tissue fibres of the dermis that give the skin its firmness and tone. Sun damage, genetics, and lifestyle choices can all contribute to this loss of elasticity and density. At one point in time, surgery was the only option to correct lax skin; however, advancements in non-invasive devices and facial rejuvenation techniques now provide remarkable improvements to the tightness and tone of the skin without a scalpel in site.
