Are your neck and face giving away your age? Your skin begins to show its first signs of aging in your late 20s and early 30s. The first indications include fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and a reduction in the amount of collagen your body produces. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking, excessive sun exposure, and stress all speed up the biological clock. While we can control lifestyle factors to a certain degree, the aging process still occurs. Unfortunately, facial aging is due to changes in several types of tissues including skin, fat, muscle, and bone. The skin thins, becoming less elastic, drier, and less supple due to loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Fat is lost and redistributed revealing hollowing and wrinkles. Bone loss occurs, removing structural support for underlying tissues.
Although we cannot turn back the clock, many of our treatments can improve skin texture, tone, structure, elasticity, and hydrobalance, as well as fill out wrinkles and folds and restore facial volume. We have many treatment options to preserve the health of your midlife skin and even heal some of the damage that has been done.
