Now let us understand the physiology of our skin to know how is it affected due to both extrinsic and intrinsic factors.
Elastin and collagen are two essential components of our skin and hold our skin together. Elastin provides elasticity to your skin while collagen provides firmness to your skin. As we grow old, constant dynamic changes take place in both elastin and collagen making them thick and loose. And this leads to your skin becoming inelastic and brittle. This shows up on your skin in the form of wrinkles and sagging.
Skin ageing is also associated with loss of skin moisture. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural component of our skin that maintains skin elasticity and strength. As we age, natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA) levels in our skin decrease, making our skin look dry and rough. This leads to loss of firmness and pliability. Hyaluronic acid (HA) can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen the outer layers of your skin. It will make your skin look and feel softer, smoother, and plumper—all hall marks of younger-looking skin!
The signs of ageing can be divided into early and advanced. While the early signs of ageing can be treated with a combination of products and services, advanced signs of ageing need specialized and customized treatment and care along with dermatological expertise.
