Aging Skin / Loss of elasticity / Age Spots Treatment
Aging skin is skin that has begun to loose collagen and elastin proteins, due to decreased fibroblasts activity which results in slow cell turnover. Skin that lacks in collagen and elastin becomes thinner and shows signs of drooping and wrinkling.
What causes aging skin?
Exposure to sunlight and free radical damage are the reasons why our skin ages.
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages certain fibres in the dermal layer.
