Skin through the ages…
‘Skin through ages’
In our 20’s Even youthful skin requires nourishment and preventative measures in order to determine how your skin will appear in your 40’s and post menopause. A greater understanding of the ageing process means people in their 20’s are taking better care and seeking preventative action. Cellular turnover is at its peak with the dermal layers creating collagen and elastin. Skin appears plump and firm, however the damaging process may have already begun through a combination of poor skincare, UVA and UVB exposure, genetic influences, pollutants, poor diet and hormonal changes. During these years identifying problems, addressing immediate areas of concern and starting long term preventative regimes is key
In our 30’s You are likely to see the first visible signs of ageing in your 30’s, caused by reduced cell turnover, thinning of the skin, a noted reduction in skin hydration and thickening of the epidermal layers of the skin. Skin may appear wrinkled, lined, dull and with uneven tone. Roseca, pigmentation, red veins and milia often become more pronounced. A combination of treating visible issues together with a programme to prevent further damage and ageing is required. Resurfacing, inhibitors, fillers, collagen stimulants should be considered at this life stage.
In your 40’s The majority of women will become more aware of visible signs of ageing and of their own inner ageing process as the pre-menopausal years begin. Volume is lost firstly in the upper face, concavities and structural changes present in the mid-face and skin elasticity starts to breakdown in the lower face and neck. A combination of treatments is advised including resurfacing, volumising, defining and sculpting to rejuvenate at a deeper level.
In our 50’s In the menopausal and post-menopausal years the ageing process is accelerated more rapidly than any other decade. Superficially skin elasticity, hydration and tone visibly deteriorates. This can be improved by skin resurfacing treatments complemented by an intensive skincare regime. At a deeper, more fundamental structural level, the facial shape changes which is remedied by non-invasive remodelling techniques. This will redefine your facial shape and restore hollow and sunken areas.
