Skin ageing, wrinkles

wrinklesAgeing is a natural, biological process by which the body undergoes a variety of age-related changes that decrease its adaptive capabilities. Without going into detail about the causes and mechanisms of ageing, we will discuss the external signs of this phenomenon—drooping of the skin and the appearance of facial wrinkles.

What happens to the skin as it ages?

1. Its firmness and moisture content decrease.

This is the skin losing its ability to quickly repair itself, which impacts its elasticity and resilience. The skin then creases more easily.

What can help:

2. Expression lines appear.

This is caused both by a person’s individual facial anatomy and by her facial expression habits (wrinkling the forehead and nose, raising and pulling the eyebrows together, squinting the eyes, etc.).
As the skin’s properties change with age, expression lines become deeper, forming creases.

What can help:

3. Loss of volume.

Gradual loss of volume in the skin’s fatty tissue (especially in the nasolabial region and around the cheekbones and nasolacrimal canal).

What can help:

4. Changes in skin tone.

As the skin thins out and the top corneous layer begins to thicken, blood vessels show through, and pigmentation occurs.

What can help:

Managing your age-related issues early on will ensure that your wrinkles are less noticeable and will allow you to maintain a more beautiful appearance. Appropriate, well-chosen treatments and the skilled hands of a specialist will prevent new, deeper signs of ageing from appearing.
