Can you get elasticity back in your skin?

About Loss of Elasticity

How quickly your skin recoils back to its original position is called elasticity. The more elastic your skin, the more youthful looking it is, snapping back into place quickly, and therefore, it is more firm and tight. Elasticity is a result of a protein in the skin called elastin.

What causes the loss of elasticity in skin?

The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis (surface layer of the skin). Skin becomes more fragile. This is caused by a flattening of the area where the epidermis and dermis (layer of skin under the epidermis) come together.

Does HRT help with skin elasticity?

HRT and effects on skin

HRT can also reduce ageing of your skin; it often looks firmer and plumper as the oestrogen works to strengthen the collagen and elastin fibres.
