Aged Skin

The natural ageing process is inevitable. The development of wrinkles and fine lines is the most common result of this unfortunately inexorable process.

While there is no precise cure for ageing, we have many tools and treatments at our disposal that are capable of reducing the depth of these fine lines.

As we age, skin cells divide and regenerate at a much slower rate than when we’re younger. Our skin is made up of networks of elastin and collagen fibres that increase volume and elasticity. Over time, these networks lose their structure and cause skin to crease and sag. Our skin also becomes less efficient in retaining moisture, secreting vital oils, and generally takes longer to heal - all additional factors in the development of wrinkles.

Fine lines are most commonly found on the forehead, in between the eyebrows, around the corner of the eyes, and surrounding the mouth. These lines are believed to be a product of constant muscle contractions caused by habitual facial expressions over time. Smiling, laughing, squinting, and frowning are all expressions made millions of times throughout our lives, so it’s no wonder the skin begins to crease in these areas.

Sun damage is also an enormous factor in the premature ageing of skin. Excessive exposure to UV radiation from the sun can damage skin tissue and break down collagen fibres. Wrinkles are a result of the natural rebuilding process that becomes less efficient over time.

Although it is impossible to avoid the natural ageing process all together, at +Aesthetics we have many treatments that can drastically reduce and even reverse signs of ageing.
