Ageing Skin

What is it?

Underneath the outer layer of our skin, there is an entire support network of connective tissues, which keeps your skin firm and fresh. Over time, this system gradually degenerates, causing the structure of your skin to change. This can lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles and grooves. Your skin can lose its elasticity and begin to sag, and it can also appear thinner.

Some of the most common examples of ageing skin include crow’s feet (lines to the corners of the eyes), jowls (sagging skin around the jawline), droopy eyelids, marionette lines (the wrinkles running from the corners of your mouth to your chin), and sagging around the neck area.

What causes it?

You have probably heard of collagen and elastin. These are the main structural proteins that are found in your skin and connective tissues, and are what give your skin firmness.

As you get older, your deep skin cells start to go to sleep, and as a consequence, they stop producing new collagen and elastin. Effectively, your skin’s natural way of renewing itself begins to slow.

For some people, inherited genetics or external factors such as sun damage or lifestyle choices (for example, smoking or certain fitness regimes), can hasten this breakdown of the skin renewal process. This leads to premature ageing, such as the early onset of lines and wrinkles, and thinning skin tissues.

What problems does it create?

For the vast majority of people unhappy with ageing skin, the issues will be very much psychological and cosmetic. They may find that their confidence has been knocked and their self-esteem lowered. They may resort to using certain make-ups in order to conceal the problems, often with varying results.

Fortunately, there are a variety of ways for slowing and even reversing the process, achieving great results even without surgery.

How do we diagnose it?

The specific signs of ageing are very straightforward for a skilled doctor to identify. This includes recognising the principle area(s) in which there has been a loss of collagen causing other areas to sag. The doctor will look for dullness, dryness and dehydration in the skin, and also identify the changes to your skin’s structure and deeper skin tissues – all causes that lead to wrinkles, sagging and a lack of thickness.

How do we treat it?

There are many ways in which we can reverse the effects of ageing skin, with popular treatments including liquid facelifts with dermal fillers, medical chemical peels, and thread lifts. You can check out the links below for some of the procedures on offer.
