We all know the signs of skin aging - uneven skin tone and texture, loss of elasticity, pigmentation, lines, and wrinkles, jowling, and sagging.  These are signs we readily see on the surface. But did you know that there are also changes that goes skin deep?

What happens to the deeper structures of the skin when we age and what treatments can be done?

  • Superficial signs of skin aging

Let’s start with the more obvious signs - like pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as textural changes. Using treatments like a good skin care regimen such as Obagi skincare products, microdermabrasion, and laser therapy can eliminate these superficial signs of skin aging.

  • Signs of aging skin on the dermis

The second layer of the skin is where your collagen and elastic fibers are. Treatments such as salicylic or TCA peels, lasers, skin boosters, induce collagen production improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles and lack of elasticity and glow.

  • Treatments for facial volume loss and jowling

Decreasing facial volume and jowling on some parts of the face brought about by loss of fat pads and changes in the bone due to aging can be managed by volumizing filler injection and energy-based devices like monopolar RF and HIFU.

  • Treatments for dynamic wrinkling

Dynamic wrinkling or wrinkles that appear around the eyes, or forehead when we make certain facial expressions due to hyperactive muscles are treated by injecting botulinum toxin to relax them. All of the said changes in each layer needs to be addressed to achieve a 360-degree facial rejuvenation and skin that not only appears bright, smooth, and tight but also contoured and lifted.
