    improving crepey skin
    An_267452 posted:
    Due to a serious illness 7 months ago, I had a rapid weight loss of over 20% of my total body weight. In a few months I went from a fit 62 year old who looked 50, to a frail old woman, with crepey skin, no muscle tone, and more body wrinkles than my 94-year-old grandmother. I am working on my muscle tone, and slowly increasing my stamina. But my skin elasticity is severely reduced. My question is, is there any treatment or therapy, other than surgery, than can help reduce crepey, mass wrinkles in older skin?
