Does your skin make you look older than you feel?

Posted on 07 Apr, 2012

As we age, our skin starts to change and reflect the passing years: pigmentation regulation becomes less efficient, and can cause hyper pigmented patches of skin to appear, particularly if the skin has been exposed to sunlight without adequate protection; collagen production decreases, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle; pores may appear enlarged and thread veins can also start to become visible through the surface of the skin…

Unfortunately, there are certain factors that can accelerate this natural ageing process, and make the skin look older than it should. The sun is a major culprit, affecting both the melanin production and causing wrinkles and fine lines to develop, but smoking can have ravaging effects, as can environmental pollution.

If you feel you have lost your youthful look too soon, you may be relying on lotions and potions to restore the appearance of your skin. There is another solution, however: photo rejuvenation treatment can offer an effective solution that can significantly improve the appearance of the skin.

Photo rejuvenation treatment uses light energy to remove pigmented spots and thread veins; it also stimulates the production of collagen, which has been shown to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
