Are you considering investing in minimally invasive anti-aging treatments but there seem to be so many great options that you can’t decide which are right for you?
There are a lot of attractive options available, so it can be impossible to choose just one, especially if you have more than just one skincare problem area. A carefully curated combo plan means a better overall result and the benefit of targeting multiple skin issues without having to choose just one problem to address.
The Multiple Effects of Aging
It is actually quite common to have a variety of skin concerns. Many times these issues are actually related. The reason is that some of these problems are often the result of overlapping causes.
Loss of Proteins
As we age, our bodies naturally will produce less collagen and elastin. These important proteins play a large role in maintaining the youthful appearance of our skin. Collagen acts like a support structure, keeping skin lifted and smooth. Elastin is responsible for (you guessed it) the elasticity of our skin.
When our bodies manufacture less and less of these proteins, there can be consequences for the look and feel of our skin. These consequences accumulate over time and eventually lead to noticeable symptoms of aging.
Sun damage is not technically a direct result of aging. However, as time passes, all of the hours spent in the sun accumulate and the results appear on our skin. Sun can actually damage the DNA of our cells, negatively impacting the amount of collagen and elastin in our skin and altering the amount of melanin we produce.
Our hormones affect every aspect of our bodies, and that includes our skin. As we age, hormone profiles change, and visible effects can be the result. With age, women produce less estrogen. A reduction in estrogen can cause lower production of elastin and collage, as well as a decrease in hyaluronic acid. A lack of hyaluronic acid can mean thinner skin with a less hydrated appearance.
Common Related Concerns
We often see the same or a similar group of problems come up together. This is why you should consider a combination therapy package.
- Brown Spots: Brown spots are often a result of sun damage.
- Melasma: Melasma is an uneven skin tone similar to sun spots, but it usually results from hormonal causes.
- Fine Lines: Fine lines and wrinkles result from all of the causes we mentioned above.
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture: Like fine lines, uneven tone and texture result from sun damage, hormone shifts, and the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin
