Healthy Ageing

Ageing is the flattening of the dermal-epidermal junction, resulting in decreased nutrient transfer between the layers, elongated and collapsed fibroblasts, disorganised collagen fibrils with overall decrease in collagen levels and accumulation of abnormal elastin-containing material (solar elastosis).

As we age, there is a gradual decline in most physiological processes. For the skin, the most characteristic features of ageing include volume loss, decreased cellular function, and apoptosis. This is in conjunction with decreased collagen and elastin production due to lower fibroblast activity, higher fragility of cellular walls and increased tissue rigidity. As the skin ages, there are profound changes in skin texture and volume loss around the orbital area, cheeks, and lips. This leads to the change in face shape, and deep skin wrinkles and shadows replacing smooth and bright skin.

The usual presentation of this process is thinning, compacted skin, fine lines and wrinkles, decreased cell turnover, lessened proliferation of healthy cells, hollow areas and skin laxity.

There are two different elements to skin ageing; extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic factors are external to the body. These are environmental and lifestyle stimulus that effect the skin, primarily sun exposure, leading to pigmented lesions, patchy hypo-pigmention, premature wrinkles, telangiectasia, actinic elastosis and actinic keratosis.

Intrinsic elements of ageing are those that are internal to the body; genetic and physiological factors. These lead to thinning of the skin, laxity, fragility and wrinkles – specifically expression lines.

Our Unique approach to these concerns is centred around our holistic understanding of healthy ageing. We factor in extrinsic and intrinsic influences to create a uniquely tailored regime consisting of exactly what is needed to bring your skin back to optimal health, renew the processes of collagen and elastin stimulation, dermal plumping and strengthening of the skin matrix.
