Crepey Arms – How do Crazy Arms sun sleeves help?

Arm with crepey skin

"Crepey" skin. 

As individuals age, they may encounter the condition known as "crepey skin," characterized by a thin, delicate texture reminiscent of crepe paper. This phenomenon primarily manifests on the upper arms and undersides, often attributed to factors such as collagen and elastin loss, decreased moisture, and sun damage.

Sun exposure plays a significant role in exacerbating crepey skin. Ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate the skin, causing collagen and elastin breakdown, essential components for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. With age, the body produces less collagen and elastin, making the skin more susceptible to crepey texture. Additionally, reduced oil production compromises the skin's moisture barrier, further contributing to the issue.

Possible treatments for crepey arms

A variety of medical and cosmetic treatments are available for the rejuvenation of crepey skin.

  • Topical Treatments: Specialty creams and lotions enriched with ingredients like retinol, hyaluronic acid, and peptides aim to boost collagen production and retain moisture, promoting smoother skin texture.
  • Chemical Peels: These treatments involve the application of chemical solutions to exfoliate the skin's outer layer, effectively removing dull and damaged skin cells to reveal a fresher, more youthful appearance.
  • Microdermabrasion: This non-invasive procedure gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead cells and stimulating cell turnover to improve skin texture and tone.
  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatments stimulate collagen production deep within the skin, helping to firm and tighten it, thus reducing the appearance of crepey skin.

We don’t have any opinion on the safety and benefits of these treatments, and we’d love to hear from our community of what has or hasn’t worked.

Skin damage starts to occur from an early age. Arms are often left to fend for themselves and receive a lot of occasional UV exposure over a lifetime. It’s never too early, and never too late to provide protection.
