Facial Ageing

Facial Ageing

Why choose Face Matters to address the signs of facial ageing?

Facial ageing occurs naturally; we lose volume, collagen and elastin, and our facial muscles become more lax with time. Some people age more quickly than others due to their inherited genetic make-up and their individual DNA.

With time, our skin loses the ability to “renew “itself; environmental damage such as sun exposure, smoking and stress as well as an unhealthy diet and lifestyle will accelerate the ageing process and will result in the following changes:

1) The skin cells’ lifecycle will slow down. Our skin will become drier and appears to have an uneven texture.

2) Collagen and elastin fibres break down. As these provide texture and volume, the ageing skin will develop fine lines, wrinkles and folds.
Unfortunately, this process starts from around the age on 30 years !

3) The muscles underneath the skin which are responsible for our facial
expressions (smiling, frowning, raising eyebrows, pulling faces, etc)
are overactive and produce wrinkles and lines with use.

That being said, you can delay and influence skin degeneration in a positive way by following scientific, dermatologically-based guidelines together with a healthy lifestyle. We’ve put some recommendations together below to help you review where your skincare regime could be tweaked to slow down the signs of facial ageing.

Essential support for your skin

You can give your skin the essential support it needs to maintain its youthfulness by:

  • Exercising regularly to oxygenate your skin and tissues
  • Having skin peel treatments to improve your skin vitality, elasticity, texture and colour
  • Opt for wrinkle reducing injections to achieve a younger, rested look
  • Have dermal fillers to recreate facial volume for your lips, cheek, chin and other areas
  • Have regular micro-needling treatments to hydrate the deeper skin layers and promote collagen production
