Ageing Skin

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.  Here at Continental Skin Clinic, we offer multiple treatments to tackle ageing skin at different stages suited to your needs. 

What do we mean by ageing skin?

Skin naturally ages with time. But many factors can either speed up or slow down the process.

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, and 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. 

Causes of Ageing Skin

The most common cause of ageing skin are the following:

  • 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.
  • 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 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 we can help

If you have concerns with loose or sagging skin, knowing the causes and carrying out preventative measures 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. 

Our specialised treatments help to target:

  • Age Spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun Damaged Skin
  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin

Overall, Improving the tone & texture of the skin and strengthening the skin’s barrier help you achieve a more youthful appearance and healthy glow. Our list of treatments can be used on all areas of the face and body, and depending on your concern, our doctor will recommend a bespoke treatment for your skin type to target your problematic area.
