Treating Crepey Skin on the Chest, Arms, Elbows, and Knees

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


As we age, our skin becomes thin and can take on a finely wrinkled appearance that resembles crepe paper. Your skin can develop this texture from sun exposure, age, insufficient hydration, excessive weight loss, and other factors. Crepey skin can appear nearly anywhere on your body where your skin is thin and stretched, though it often occurs on the chest, arms, elbows, and knees.  These areas of thin skin can also be loose and saggy.

At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we offer a variety of treatments to give your skin a smoother, more supple appearance including:

Lasers work by removing old cells and stimulating the production of collagen in your skin, which is responsible for strength and suppleness. This accelerates the natural skin renewal process to make your skin look more youthful and elastic.

Radiofrequency Treatments. Utilizing gentle heat, radio frequency treatments stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. The treatments often involve little to no discomfort and no downtime. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the most dramatic results.

Injectable Fillers. Injectable fillers such as Radiesse® can give your skin an even, plump appearance by restoring lost volume beneath the surface. Our experienced dermatologists can determine which filler may be best for you during a personalized consultation.

Skincare Treatments. Skincare treatments that have resurfacing properties can be used to improve the look of crepey skin. Depending on the area that you wish to treat, we may recommend:

  • Intensif Microneedling
  • Chemical peels
