Concern Summary

As we age, we start to notice fine lines and wrinkles appear, as well as loss of firmness and elasticity. Skin aging is a result of biological changes in the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, extending right down to muscular and skeletal components as natural degradation occurs.

What Causes it

  • Sun exposure – the major cause, often referred to as photoageing.
  • Pollution and environmental stressors.
  • Lifestyle choices, such as insufficient sleep patterns, smoking and alcohol consumption.
  • Stress

The good news is that you can reverse some of this damage and prevent future negative effects on the skin.
