Why does our skin age?
Did you ever notice how perfect a baby’s skin is? The surface is smooth and unblemished, producing a face that’s beautifully soft and plump. So why can’t our skin look that way throughout life? The aswer is AGING, and it’s a process that takes an especially heavy toll on our face, neck and brow.
The skin is the largest of all human organs, and like any organ, it undergoes natural changes with the passage of time. This is called Intrinsic Aging. It begins at about 20, when we start producing less collagen, a reduction that continues to increase with each passing year. This loss of collagen causes the skin to become thinner and less resilient. Meanwhile, our sweat and oil glands suffer a similar reduction in function, which means there is less elastin in the skin to help it retract. Hence, the skin becomes loose and wrinkled, while pockets of fat to develop under the eyes and around the jaw line.
Unfortunately, Intrinsic Aging is exacerbated by Extrinsic Aging, which results from exposure to the sun, environmental pollutants, and toxins such as alcohol and cigarettes. This type of aging manifests itself through the development of wrinkles, age spots, brown patches, and rough skin texture.
Of course, other influences, such as acne scars, ill health, and hormonal changes can take a toll, especially when coupled with the ravages of gravity, which increases the sagging and jowling that occurs as the cheeks lose volume and the jaw suffers bone loss. Still, don’t get depressed. YOU CAN FIGHT BACK AND WIN!
Reversing the Signs of Aging with Non-Invasive Ultherapy
Tanning, exposure to pollutants, and skin neglect unquestionable accelerate the signs of aging. But happily, good skin care in concert with non-invasive treatments can retard or reverse those signs. One such treatment is Ultratherapy, the only non-invasive regimen approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Usually it takes only one 60-to-90-minute treatment to see dramatic results that last up to a year.
