Causes of Skin Changes As We Age

  1. Structural Changes Associated with Aging Skin
  2. Wrinkles
  3. Skin Colour Changes
  4. Breakdown of Collagen and Elastin
  5. Dehydration
  6. Skin Cell Turnover Slows Down
  7. Loss of Underlying Support

Treatment Recommendations:

Our treatments should focus on all of the above changes:

  1. Skin care regime specific for aged skin – see below
  2. Chemical peels: superficial peels such as glycolic acid are a great tool to rejuvenate the skin on an ongoing basis with no downtime at all
  3. Botox®: to reduce the effect expression muscles have on our skins
  4. Dermal fillers: to re-inflate the loss or thinning of the fat pads bringing back that vital support
  5. Surgery: face lift, neck lift, SMAS lift, etc.
