No matter how hard we try, we cannot avoid the aging of our skin. It is an inevitable part of life that is worsened by many factors such as UV exposure, our environment, daily routine and, most of all, the passage of time.
Our skin is not only the largest organ of our body, but also an expression of our identity, lifestyle and choices we made. This explains why many of us try our best to keep it looking as good for as long as possible and to deflect the endless attacks of the biological and environmental forces on its youthfulness.
There are many ways aging can affect our skin including wrinkles, volume loss, sagging, dull skin tone, age spots and spider veins.
What Causes Aging Skin?
Skin ages due to various environmental causes and biological variables:
Genetics and family history play a big part in how each person ages. If your genetic history includes individuals who aged noticeably faster, there is a good chance the same thing will happen to you but we offer a number of treatments that will help slow this process down.
Our skin’s health can be directly tied to our internal health. Leading an unhealthy lifestyle is eventually going to leave a mark on our physical appearance.
Sun exposure is responsible for most of the visible aging of your skin – far more than all other factors combined. Sunrays are harmful to our skin and cause damage in the form of pigmentation, volume loss and texture problems.
Wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) or between the eyebrows (frown lines) are caused by small muscle contractions. Over a lifetime, regular facial expressions like frowning, smiling, or squinting leave their mark on our skin.
Dilated Blood Vessels
Tiny vessels in our face and body can become more visible when exposed to trauma as we get older. areas of the skin, particularly around the cheeks and nose, may become reddish or you may notice small veins on your face.
Decrease in Collagen or Hyaluronic Acid
As we age, our skin loses the ability to produce its own collagen and hyaluronic acid, resulting in many skin imperfections like volume loss and a lack of firmness and elasticity.
