Do you have aging skin? Are you trying to prevent premature aging? Let's take a deeper look.
What Happens to Skin as it Ages?
As the skin ages, it naturally loses elasticity, becomes dehydrated, and cell turnover begins to slow. This combination leads to wrinkling and laxity, and a dull surface texture. The four major facets of aging skin include:
Collagen and elastin break down and their production decreases
Fine lines and wrinkles appear due to a lack of collagen and elastin support
Cell turnover rates and hydrating components decrease, leading to dry, flaky skin
Sun-induced skin discolorations often occur
Working with your skincare professional can help you find out how to arrest and reverse the appearance of aging skin and/or help you create a plan to prevent premature aging. No two faces are identical and not all treatments are the same. If you want to know more about your skin, contact us for an in-person Skin Scope diagnostic or an online telefacial session.

When paired with daily care for anti-aging, there is visible improvement in the skin.
There are a number of effective ingredients to look for in daily care products that can help minimize the signs of aging:
