Learn More About Skin Aging
What causes aging skin?
“Environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure, smoking and increased stress can predispose the skin to aging, wrinkles and lines.”
Common factors that may contribute to skin aging:
Early or Surgical Menopause
Consuming Sodas and Processed Foods
How does skin aging typically manifest itself?
“The long term consequences of sun exposure over the years lead to changes that weaken, thin and change the skin in ways that lead to wrinkles and discolorations.”
What are the main factors that contribute to changes in our skin as we age?
“There are three main factors: First, while young faces are lustrous and even-toned, the surface of the skin becomes dull and discolored with aging. Secondly, the skin, underlying fat, and layers of muscles within the face thin out as we grow older. This can cause a ‘caved-in’ appearance and produce undesirable wrinkles. Finally, our good friend gravity, combined with the loss of the skin's elasticity, can make the face sag and droop.”
