AGEING SKIN

Ageing

As we grow older, our bodies produce less collagen that keeps our skin firm and well hydrated, causing lines and wrinkles to deepen and appear on the skin.  Collagen and elastin are the two components that provide the support structure for the skin, keeping it smooth, resilient, and youthful. As these fibres break down, the skin loses its strength and elasticity, forming shallow creases on the face. Skin discolouration like age spots, sun spots, uneven tone & texture, enlarged pores, fine lines, deep wrinkles, loss of volume and elasticity are all signs of skin damage and ageing skin. This can appear all over the body, especially the face, décolletage, arms, hands and legs. 

How does the skin age?

Our skin is at its best that we are children, where the process of skin cell repair and regeneration is at its highest.

During our teenage years, the skin function becomes altered and the production of sebum (oil) production is increased.

As an adult, the skin barrier deteriorates and as a result, you may develop irregular texture, enlarged pores, acne and uneven skin colour.

By the age of 30, the production of new skin cells become extremely irregular. The skins’ barrier weakens, and the skin starts to develop lines and wrinkles.

 

CAUSES OF PREMATURE AGEING

  • Sun exposure and tanning: Tanning beds and exposure to the sun penetrate your skin with UV rays. These rays damage the DNA in your skin cells, causing wrinkles.
  • Smoking: The toxins in cigarette smoke expose your skin to oxidative stress. This causes dryness, wrinkles, and other signs of premature ageing.
  • Alcohol intake: Drinking alcohol excessively dehydrates your body. Over time, this dehydration can cause your skin to sag and lose its shape.
  • Environment: Pigment spots and wrinkles can be triggered or worsened by pollutants and toxins in your daily environment.
  • Too much Stress: A stressful lifestyle can trigger an inflammatory response in your body, as well as hurt your sleep habits. Stress hormones and inflammation can age your body faster.
  • Sleep habits: Poor sleep quality is connected to increased signs of ageing and a diminished skin barrier function. Having the recommended amount of sleep, which is at least 7 hours, gives your body an opportunity to refresh and regenerate cells.

HOW TO PREVENT AGEING SKIN

  • Eat healthily to maintain a healthy weight and happy hormones
  • Take supplements to support your skin and boost collagen production
  • Practice sun safety and wear SPF 30 sunscreen daily
  • Keep your skin moisturised with a hydrating cream
  • Reduce stress
  • Quit smoking and reduce any exposure to secondary smoke
  • Improve your skin and tissue quality (i.e. boost collagen and elastin) through skin products and treatments

WHAT ARE ANTI-AGEING TREATMENTS?

Anti-ageing is a treatment to delay or stop the ageing process. Although nothing can stop time, at Savant, we can combat signs of ageing skin and help you achieve smoother and plumper skin. There are many treatments that can help combat ageing, using both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Damage from too much sun exposure can take its toll and be responsible for most of the visible ageing of the skin. As well as photo-ageing, repeatedly spending time in the sun for long exposure without sunscreen can lead to skin cancer. Our specialists can determine what would be the best anti-ageing treatment for your concern and help you achieve the best results

HOW WE CAN HELP WITH WRINKLES, FINE LINES, SAGGING SKIN AND AGE SPOTS

If you have concerns with loose or sagging skin, knowing what the causes and preventative measures are can go a long way to helping you feel more confident. Sagging skin usually occurs from internal or external factors that affect the key molecules, vital for helping keep the skin elastic, firm, and hydrated. When this process is disrupted, loose skin under the chin, sagging jowls and less than firm cheeks can be experienced.   

Here at Salon Savant, Our specialised treatments help to target:

AGEING HANDS

Hands are the most visible uncovered area of the body apart from face and neck; therefore it’s the first body part where signs of ageing become apparent. Many of us take care of the skin on our faces as we age, but we often neglect our hands.

Due to years of sun exposure, loss of fat volume occurring with age, and poor hand hygiene; sun spots, crepey skin and prominent veins can take on a pronounced appearance on our hands, revealing our true age even if our face looks ten years younger.

  • Practice sun safety and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
  • To fade existing spots, look for a product with melanin-inhibiting ingredients, such as licorice root, kojic acid, or niacinamide.
  • Always wear gloves when cleaning and washing the dishes.
  • Wear gloves if you’re outside on a cold, dry day.

 

HOW WE CAN HELP

Here at Savant we have multiple treatment options to treat ageing hands:

  • Chemical peels and retinols used to treat facial wrinkles may also be used to improve the texture of hands. Consult with our Savant specialists on which products and treatments are best. Apply before bed to stimulate the production of thickening collagen.
  • Always keep hands hydrated by using creams with hyaluronic acid will temporarily plump up the skin to make veins less obvious. Consult with our Savant specialists on which products are best suited for you.
  • Injectable fillers are commonly used to repair volume in the hands and hide veins by filling in the tissue around them.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) to help reverse the signs of aging on the hands by using light-based energy to fade sun spots and produce a more even skin tone.
