ageing

Ageing of the human face is a complex process and is not limited to just the skin. It is a three-dimensional process affecting the skin, fat, muscle, and bone. Research into this field of medicine is now starting to mature and we are able to predict and understand in a simplified manner as we age. 

Skin health and the maintenance of skin health involve numerous strategic cells and processes. Our skin is at its best while we are still children – up to the age of 10 years skin can be defined as being smooth, even in colour, firm, tight, well moistured, tolerant, and the process of skin cell repair and regeneration is regular. 

By the age of 30, skin becomes inactive. The turnover of skin cells becomes extremely irregular. The skin’s barrier function becomes weak. A lack of cellular activity means critical structures within the skin become deplea\ded, abnormal in structure and hence skin starts to develop lines and wrinkles. These are the three main components of the skin that are the focus of the majority of our anti-aging treatments. These are collagen,  elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Treatments that are aimed at increasing their levels as optimizing the conditions for their production, repair, and regeneration produce the best anti-aging effect.
