We often hear “It’s too late to do anything for my skin now”, this is incorrect ! While biological ageing cannot be stopped, this is not where most signs of ageing occur in the skin. 90% of the signs of ageing occur due to UV exposure and other lifestyle factors that increase natural processes in the body that lead to ageing. These accelerated signs of ageing are caused due to:
Glyc-ageing or Glycation due to high sugar diets that alter proteins such as collagen and elastin in the skin.
Inflammaging – Is where free radicals damage skin cell membranes causes widespread inflammation that will dilate vessels causing redness, cause the skin to be hypersensitive, and the destruction of normal tissue reducing the elasticity and volume in the skin.
Infra-ageing – Infra-red ageing touches on ageing caused by sun exposure which can account for the majority of clients’ concerns. This is not just UVA and UBA, it includes infra-red light and blue light all of which contribute to collagen and elastin breakdown resulting in the loss of firmness, elasticity and cause sagging skin and wrinkles.
These external factors and the damage they cause can be improved by working on the epidermis and dermis levels of the skin, to target specialised cells such as the fibroblast and melanocyte to reduce skin laxity, improve lines and wrinkles, even your skin tone, improve texture for smoother skin, reduce redness and improve the overall health of your skin for a glowing complexion.
