Flaccidity is one of the aging effects, caused by a slower cellular metabolism, which makes non-functional the collagen in our skin, causing the skin to lose elasticity and firmness.
Collagen is a protein molecule present in many tissues of our body. In the skin, its function is to make it firm, elastic and, flexible, this means that it stretches and contracts when it suits us.
Did you know that after we are 25 years old we naturally began to gradually lose collagen? So, by being this molecule responsible for the degree of firmness and elasticity of our body, has an essential role in its hydration. Therefore, the loss of collagen is the main cause of wrinkles and flaccidity.
Although the main cause of flaccidity is due to aging, it can also be caused by abrupt and fast changes in weight or even by hormonal disorders that cause our collagen and elastin fibers to become deconstructed.
Moreover, the areas where we tend to accumulate more flaccidity are the inner side of the arms, the abdomen, the inner side of the thighs, knees, and buttocks.
For this reason, at Zurko Research we have the latest technology to measure the flaccidity (cutometer) and collagen levels of your skin (ultrascan). In this way, we test firming products of all kinds, and we check the safety and above all their effectiveness. The manufacturers of this type of cosmetic products fully rely on our services so as to confirm the quality and benefits of their cosmetics, and thus be able to sell them with complete certainty that the final consumer will be satisfied.
