Aging Skin

What is Aging Skin

As we grow older, changes like these naturally occur:


  • Skin becomes rougher.
  • Skin develops lesions 
  • Skin becomes slack. The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely.
  • Skin becomes more transparent. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis (surface layer of the skin).
  • Skin becomes more fragile. This is caused by a flattening of the area where the epidermis and dermis (layer of skin under the epidermis) come together.
  • Skin becomes more easily bruised. This is due to thinner blood vessel walls.

What causes aging skin

Skin aging is a degenerative process caused by intrinsic, chronological aging, and extrinsic, environmental aging. Both intrinsic and extrinsic factors contribute to visible signs of aging including a loss of skin’s radiance and firmness, as well as wrinkles, laxity, and pigmentation.

There are other reasons, too. Primary factors contributing to wrinkled, spotted skin include normal aging, exposure to the sun (photoaging) and pollution, and loss of subcutaneous support (fatty tissue between your skin and muscle). Other factors that contribute to aging of the skin include stress, gravity, daily facial movement, obesity, and even sleep position.

Treatment Options

botox and dysport
Botox & Dysport

Botox works by stopping the muscle that it’s injected into from contracting, so it appears relaxed and smooth. Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing new wrinkles from forming

Dermal FIllers

Injectables can’t permanently replace lost fat and proteins, but they can mimic your skin’s original structure. Dermal fillers are known for plumping up, adding volume or fullness, and smoothing your skin.

laser genesis
Laser Genesis

 Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce wrinkles, pores and smooth out scar tissue. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

Lime light IPL
Limelight IPL

IPL corrects skin tone and imperfections such as sun damage, redness or discolouration around your face, neck and décolletage with one to three treatments (depending on sun-damage). A Limelight IPL treatment will even out skin complexion by reducing redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), and hyperpigmentation.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels improve the appearance of aging skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.
