Aging Skin 101

ACHIEVE A MORE YOUTHFUL‑LOOKING YOU

It’s a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc.) factors.1

WHAT HAPPENS AS WE AGE?

  1. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity
  2. Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear

to combat signs of facial aging,THERE ARE THREE MAJOR KINDS OF ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS
  1. Resurfacing
    Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing modify the surface of the skin to correct visible signs of sun damage, such as fine lines, irregular pigmentation and blemishes.
  2. Injectables
    Toxins, traditional fillers (hyaluronic acid) and collagen stimulators are injected into facial areas to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore facial contours.
  3. Surgery
    A wide range of surgical procedures exist, like liposuction, face lifts and fat transfers, which are used to remove excess fat, lift severely sagging skin or fill facial hollows. These are the most invasive types of treatment.
