As you become older, are you noticing changes in your skin?

Skin changes as you age are a very natural part of aging. The thinning, drying, and loss of elasticity of the skin can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. When you reach the age of 25, you may begin to notice fine lines on your skin and a loss of skin elasticity.

The majority of individuals anticipate skin changes to appear when they begin to age, but they can also be caused by external factors. The external factors could include smoking, poor nutrition, pollution, and UV radiation exposure. Skin aging can be delayed for a longer time and treated even if it cannot be stopped because it is a natural process.

The healthy choice clinic offers several procedures to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, including chemical peeling, micro-needling with PRP, and Botox. Please feel free to come to our clinic for treatment of aging skin issues; we are always at your service.

What are the external factors causing skin aging?

External factors may speed up the aging process of the skin. These are some external factors that can cause such skin changes:

  • Sun exposure: Excessive sun exposure can result in sun damage causing wrinkles and age spots on the skin.
  • Environmental pollution: Environmental pollution results in oxidative stress, inflammation, and skin wrinkling. In general, it can cause skin damage and early aging.
  • Smoking: Since tobacco can harm the collagen and elastin fibers found in the skin, smoking is the main cause of premature aging.
  • Unhealthy diet: Eating a diet high in processed foods can damage your skin and make wrinkles emerge.
  • Rough skin care products: It is always advised to apply gentle products on the skin. Skin damage from using rough cosmetics, such as those with perfumes and sulfates, can contribute to premature aging.

What can you do to stop yourself from decreasing the aging process of your skin?

The factors that need to be avoided are those that have been mentioned as skin aging causes above. Among the precautions are,

  • Avoiding the sun: As exposure to the sun accelerates the aging process, you can protect yourself from UV rays by applying sunscreen promptly and wearing skin-covering clothing when outdoors.
  • A well-balanced diet: Consuming foods that are high in antioxidants, such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts, keeps the skin youthful and free of wrinkles and age spots.
  • Hydration: Water consumption is crucial for maintaining skin health and a healthy lifestyle. Dehydration and certain disorders are avoided by maintaining hydration in the body.
  • Avoid smoking: Smoking should be avoided because it is the main cause of the damaging collagen and elastin fibers that cause collagen to break down, causing premature aging.
  • Sleeping enough: Getting adequate sleep is crucial because it can prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles from developing.
  • Managing stress: Exercise and meditation can help you control your stress, which prevents premature aging.

Consideration should be given to each of these preventative steps to maintain good skin and a youthful appearance.

What are the different approaches to slowing down skin aging?

1. Chemical peeling: In this procedure, dead skin cells on the outer layer are removed using a chemical solution, which also improves the texture of the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

2. Botox: This treatment involves injections and works by paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines.

3. Micro-needling with PRP: In this procedure, tiny punctures on the skin are made using a micro-needling tool to promote the creation of collagen and elastin fibers, which helps to prevent wrinkles and fine lines and quickens the skin’s healing process

4. Facelift: This is a surgical technique that reduces wrinkles from the face and neck. This procedure is intended to remove excess skin from the face or neck, then tighten the facial muscles and reposition the remaining skin to reduce the appearance of premature aging

What are the different approaches to slowing down skin aging?

Yes, we do supply medications, which can be serums or ointments, to treat skin aging issues. The medications used are as follows:

  • Reticos: It is a luminous and regenerating skin serum containing retinol, niacinamide, and licorice. The serum aids in the reduction of fine lines and hyperpigmentation on the skin.
  • Ralymoist-HA: It is a hyaluronic acid-based serum that helps with skin lifting and wrinkle reduction by filling gaps between collagen molecules.
  • Ceemocee: This is a vitamin C serum that increases collagen formation, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Royal-C: Royal-C is a vitamin C serum that also contains Glutathione, Ferulic acid, hyaluronic acid, and Superox CT, which helps to stimulate collagen formation and reduce wrinkles.

All of the medications listed above are a slow process for treating skin aging issues. To observe positive outcomes from the medication, you must be consistent and patient.

A note from the healthy choice clinic

Skin aging cannot disappear completely with certain treatments because it is a natural process that everyone goes through as they age. Although we have treatments available for you, doing only one session is insufficient for long-term results; therefore, we recommend that you have multiple sessions and follow prevention measures to achieve long-term results.
