Ageing skin is a natural process that occurs as we get older. Several factors contribute to skin ageing, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors. Our genetic makeup plays a significant role in how our skin ages. Some people may be genetically predisposed to developing wrinkles or sagging skin as they age.
Lifestyle choices, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor diet, can accelerate the ageing. Exposure to environmental factors, such as pollution and UV radiation from the sun, can also contribute to skin ageing. These factors can decrease collagen and elastin production, which are essential proteins that help keep the skin firm and elastic. As a result, the skin becomes thinner, drier, and more prone to wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.
Our skin undergoes several changes as we age, resulting in various signs of ageing. Genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution can influence these signs. While these changes are a natural part of the ageing process, Jennifer Carly Cosmetics offers several treatments to help reduce their appearance and promote a more youthful-looking complexion.
Age spots are flat, brown, grey, or black spots on the skin caused by years of sun exposure. They are more common in people over the age of 50. Pigmentation refers to skin color changes, such as darkening or lightening. It can also be caused by sun damage or hormonal changes.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner, which can lead to loose or sagging skin. This is often most noticeable in the face and neck but can also occur in other body parts. Loss of collagen and elastin, sun damage, weight loss, genetics, smoking, etc., is why skin may become loose and saggy.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, and they occur as our skin loses elasticity and collagen over time. While wrinkles are inevitable in getting older, treatments are available to help minimise their appearance. Treatments for wrinkles include injectables like Anti Wrinkle Injection and fillers, which can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, protecting your skin from the sun, and staying hydrated can also help prevent and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Some of the wrinkle concerns that are treated by us include:
