Ageing

Our skin is at the mercy of many forces as we age, sun, harsh weather, and bad habits all play a part. But we can take steps to help our skin stay supple and fresh-looking.

How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits. For instance, smoking can produce free radicals, once-healthy oxygen molecules that are now overactive and unstable. Free radicals can then damage cells, leading to premature wrinkles.

 
At DD Clinical, our goal is to help you feel good and look youthful with our non-invasive cosmetic treatments that are designed to achieve fantastic results. 

Skin changes that come with age

As we grow older, changes like these naturally occur:

  • Skin becomes rougher
  • Skin develops lesions
  • Skin becomes slack. The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely.
  • Skin becomes more transparent. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis (surface layer of the skin)
  • Skin becomes more fragile. This is caused by a flattening of the area where the epidermis and dermis (layer of skin under the epidermis) come together
  • Skin becomes more easily bruised. This is due to thinner blood vessel walls.

What causes ageing?

The primary factors that contribute to wrinkled and aged skin are:

  • Natural ageing
  • Exposure to sun
  • Pollution
  • Loss of fatty tissue between your skin and muscle
  • Stress
  • Gravity
  • Obesity
  • Daily facial movement
