Does your skin make you look older than you feel?

Posted on 25 Jun, 2012

As we get older, the skin starts to change as a result of ageing and other environmental factors. Smoking, sunshine and pollution can all take their toll on the condition of your skin, leaving it looking wrinkled and lined, with uneven pigmentation and tone. Add to this the fact that the skin renewal process slows down as we age and collagen production decreases, and you end up with skin that starts to look… well, old.

When you start to notice these signs of ageing, it can come as a bit of a shock to the system. Although a good skincare routine can help to attenuate some superficial signs of ageing, the effects tend to be temporary and rather limited.

Luckily, there are other treatments out there that can leave skin looking rejuvenated and refreshed:
Microdermabrasion and laser therapy remove damaged and dull skin cells from the superficial layers of the skin, while also stimulating skin renewal and collagen production. This can be particularly effective for removing acne scarring, improving skin texture and brightening the complexion.

I.P.L. is another treatment used to reduce hyper pigmentation, fine lines and thread veins, rejuvenating the complexion and reducing those signs of premature ageing.
