Here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we’re dedicated to making sure that your skin is the best it can be. We know that when your skin doesn’t reflect the person you are inside, it can be frustrating and upsetting, which is why we offer a wide range of skin treatments that will show on the outside who you are on the inside. In today’s post, we’ll take a look at how ageing affects your skin and what you can do to fight the signs.
The way your skin deals with the passing of time will depend on a number of factors such as your lifestyle during your younger years, and your genetics. For example, your skin may show more prominent signs of age if you had a poor diet or are a smoker, compared to someone who led a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet.
The Problem of Dryness
As you get older, your skin will produce fewer oils that keep the skin hydrated and moisturised. This means that your skin will start to dry out and flake as the natural oils begin to disappear. As the skin dries, it’ll lose elasticity, and it’s likely that you’ll notice sagging and the appearance of wrinkles.
It’s important that you take care of dry skin through the use of creams in order to replenish the moisture lost due to aging. This, however, will not reverse the signs of ageing, but we offer a treatment that will dramatically improve the appearance of your skin. HydraFacial is an intensive facial treatment that works by deeply hydrating the skin through the use of a combination of peptides that are designed to reduce the visible signs of ageing.
The Problem of Age Spots
As you enter your 40s and 50s, you may notice small patches of discoloured skin known as age spots or sun spots. They often appear on the hands, shoulders and face as they’re caused by sun exposure. The UV rays of the sun encourage the production of melanin, which causes these dark patches to appear.
If you’re unhappy at the appearance of age spots, there’s a treatment that can be used to reduce them. Fraxel UK is a solution that works by resurfacing the skin with a series of concentrated lasers. These lasers are able to pinpoint the areas of your skin that are affected, and only work on these patches so as to reduce disruption to the rest of your skin.
The Problem of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are a common problem faced by everyone as they age. They’re caused by the natural ageing of the skin as it loses hydration and elasticity, which means that the skin will start to sag and lines will appear.
You don’t have to live with your wrinkles as there are plenty of treatment options that can keep them at bay. Dermal Fillers are a treatment that’s injected into the skin. A gel solution is left behind under the top layer of skin and this will lift and plump the skin, which, in turn, smooths out wrinkles and lines.
Here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer a huge range of treatments that can be used to achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.
