Anti-aging treatment of the skin is a very important part of dermatology and plastic surgery. Lately there is an excessive need from both men and women to find specialised products and innovative procedures in order to fight aging.
These treatments are specially designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and skin relaxation. They are usually applied to parts of the body that are more prone to early signs of aging, such as:
Anti-aging treatments are highly recommended to people who are more inclined to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and relaxation. People who benefit more often from these treatments are 30 years and over.
Depending on the skin condition, the choices may vary. However, it is important to consult a specialist, who will direct you to the proper treatment.
Some of the main causes that lead to signs of aging are:
• Collagen and Elastin production reduction
• Sun exposure
• Vitamin deficiency
Further below, we propose practical advices a person should follow in order to prevent and treat the signs of aging.
Anti-aging & Nutrition
Nutritional nourishment of the skin is a key protection factor against free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for skin relaxation, dehydration and wrinkle formation.
To prevent aging and to enhance collagen production, we should consume foods rich in antioxidants. These include vitamins C and E and are the following:
• Sweet potatoes
• Olive oil
Also, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty oils are an ideal way to deal with dryness, while green tea fights skin aging.
UV exposure is an important aging factor of the skin. It leads to DNA destruction and to a dramatic decrease of collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin appears dull, dry and uneven.
Sun protection is necessary to prevent premature aging and avoid additional damage to the skin. Sunscreen should be applied daily throughout the year.
Peeling is a method of removing dead cells from the surface of the skin. A healthy cell turnover (constant shedding of dead skin cells and subsequent replacement with younger cells) is crucial to a youthful and hydrated facial skin. Cell turnover naturally slows with age, allowing the peeling process to:
• Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Increase hydration level
• Stimulate of collagen production
• Promote even tone and smooth skin
