Throughout our lifetime, our skin goes through many changes. Once we get to our mid-twenties, the normal aging process begins. This process leads to the appearance of aging skin. In addition to the normal biological process, external factors can accelerate the aging appearance.
At Elect Dermatology, our Board Certified Dermatologists have many procedures that can help reduce aging skin and restore the more youthful appearance that our patients seek.
What Causes the Skin to Age?
Around our mid-twenties, our natural aging process will begin. Our skin will start producing less collagen and elastin, leading to the loosening of the skin. Dead skin cells will start to shed less, while the production of new skin cells will decrease slightly. The signs of the natural aging process will not be visible for years. Genetics control the onset of the changes.
While there is little we can do about our genetic disposition to aging, we have more control over external factors that contribute to aging skin.
External factors that contribute to aging skin include factors such as:
- Sun exposure
- Skincare routine
- Facial expressions
