ageing

Ageing skin is a common concern for many people. Our skin undergoes several changes as we age, including a loss of elasticity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Various factors, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors can cause these changes. 

While these changes are a natural part of the ageing process, Jennifer Carly Aesthetic Medicine offers several treatments to help reduce their appearance and promote a more youthful-looking complexion.

Signs of Ageing Skin

Age spots are flat, brown, grey, or black spots on the skin caused by years of sun exposure. They are more common in people over the age of 50. Pigmentation refers to skin color changes, such as darkening or lightening. It can also be caused by sun damage or hormonal changes.

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner, which can lead to loose or sagging skin. Loss of collagen and elastin, sun damage, weight loss, genetics, smoking, etc., is why skin may become loose and saggy.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, and they occur as our skin loses elasticity and collagen over time. While wrinkles are inevitable in getting older, treatments are available to help minimise their appearance.

Facial volume loss is a common sign of ageing, and it occurs when there is a decrease in fat and bone density in the face. As we age, the fat pads that give our face a youthful appearance start to shrink and descend, causing the skin to sag and creating hollow areas. Additionally, bone density is lost in the face, particularly in the jawline and cheekbones, contributing to facial volume loss. This volume loss can lead to a sunken, worn appearance, making lines and wrinkles more noticeable.
