Ageing & Dull Skin

Anti Ageing And Laser Treatment For Skin

Ageing and dull skin are inevitable. Everyone desires a healthy skin but with time one starts noticing fine lines and dwindling glow.

Our skin is the first to show signs of ageing. As we age our skin tends to look dull, dry and appears to sag. Fine lines and wrinkles are other signs that appear making us look older.

Skin ageing is caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. These can be divided into three main categories – biological, environmental and mechanical.

1 BIOLOGICAL: Biological ageing is an intrinsic factor and usually determined by our genes. Our biological clock affects our skin and as we grow older, our skin’s regenerating capabilities slow down. Many of these changes are naturally caused by hormones and hence cannot be stopped. However, the changes caused by free radicals can be controlled to a certain extent by following a healthy lifestyle.

2 ENVIRONMENTAL: Environmental ageing is an extrinsic factor and can be controlled. Factors like sun’s harmful rays, pollution, harsh weather, and stress damage our skin leading to signs of ageing. Of all the environmental factors, sun exposure is one of the top culprits for skin ageing. Studies have shown that UV exposure is responsible for up to 90 percent of visible signs of skin aging. It is called photoageing. Photoaging causes damage to collagen, elastin, melanocytes and other moisture barriers. This results into wrinkles, sagging, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and a rough, dry skin texture. So no matter what age you are, protect your skin from sun exposure with sunscreen to prevent sunburn, premature wrinkling, sagging and sunspots.

3 MECHANICAL: Mechanical ageing is the result of repeated behavior like squinting, frowning, smiling etc. which cause grooves in the skin that over the years become permanent.

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.

Dull and Rough Skin

Dry skin is a visible first sign of early ageing. Our skin suffers natural wear-and-tear almost every day. As we enter our 20s, the skin’s exfoliation process decreases causing dead skin cells to accumulate.

Sun damage can strip the skin of essential moisture, resulting in rough dry texture. Healthy, young skin maintains appropriate moisture levels and feels supple. This sign of ageing can be tackled so that your skin continues to look supple and luminous.

Dull rough, skin texture can be treated effectively with Altmis’s Age Arrest System Early which is a customized solution that uses services and technologies along with efficacious home care products to enhance your skin’s beauty.

Uneven Skin Tone

A dull uneven patchy skin is another sign of ageing. Healthy, young skin is smooth and radiant because the skin is able to quickly regenerate so that new cells are brought to the surface and older cells are continuously shed. However as we grow older, skin’s regenerating capability decreases causing dead skin cells to accumulate on top making the skin look dull. Further, other environmental factors like sun damage and lifestyle can make your skin look dull, lifeless and uneven. These are also the early signs of ageing and should be tackled so that you continue to look youthful and beautiful.

Dull skin, uneven skin tone can be treated effectively with Kaya’s Age Arrest System. It is a customized solution that uses services and technologies along with efficacious home care products to enhance your skin’s beauty.

‘Facial Rejuvenation Therapy’ begins with skin cleansing and exfoliation using Microdermabrasion. After which all the free radicals are tackled with pure Vitamin-C serum, so that your skin can breathe free.

Once that is done, your skin is made to relax with a luxuriant and mood elevating pure Cocoa cream massage. The final touch is that of a Cocoa mask that imparts hydrating properties into your skin, making it look clear, bright and refreshed.

Fine Lines & Volume Loss

Fine lines / Wrinkles are lines caused when we contract facial muscles to express emotion. Wrinkles can be classified into two types – dynamic and static wrinkles. The wrinkles formed when we show expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. E.g. when we smile or frown. When we are young, our skin springs back to its initial position after a facial expression. But as we grow older, dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles: they are the wrinkles and folds that are present when the skin is at rest. Indian women are blessed because wrinkles arrive a little late in their aging cycle, but those with lighter skin tones see more sun damage, which accelerates the development of wrinkles.

Wrinkles appear because natural substances such as collagen (the major natural protein in skin), elastin (the protein that causes tissue to stretch) and Hyaluronic Acid (which gives skin its volume) decrease with age. This together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all continue to the creation of wrinkles and folds.

Fine lines and wrinkles are advanced signs of ageing and cannot be treated effectively with products. What you need is advanced services and technologies to take care of these concerns. Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated effectively with Altmis’s range of dermal fillers and other advanced services along with efficacious home care products to enhance your skin’s beauty.

As we age our jawline sags, our cheeks lose fullness and start looking hollow and wrinkles are visible. Volume loss in women starts typically in the 30s and increases as we age. This loss of volume is the result of thinning of the fatty layer under our skin, muscle atrophy as well as reduction in elastin and collagen in our skin.

Volume loss can make your face appear sunken and depressed. It also leads to the appearance of unnecessary folds known as nasolabial folds (folds that start from the corners of your nose to the mouth). It folds beneath the corners of the mouth and the sagging of the skin under the jawline, all of which change the way you look. Loss of volume around the brows can expose the upper orbital rim giving a very hollow look. With age, even lips start to thin and have less definition.

Volume Loss is an advanced sign of ageing and cannot be treated effectively with products. What you need is advanced services and technologies to take care of these concerns. Volume loss can be treated effectively with Altmis’s range of dermal fillers and other advanced services along with efficacious home care products to enhance your skin’s beauty.

Thread Lift

Thread Lift is a procedure which involves elevating different parts of the face using special threads without having to make surgical incisions as with a classic face lift.

Thread Lift may be marketed under a variety of names including, APTOS®Thread Lift, Contour Lift, Silk Lift™, Feather Lift™ etc.

There are two main types of threads or sutures used: Free floating cogged or barbed threads which do not need to be suspended in order to hold the lift; and smooth or suspension threads which need to be anchored to a stable structure of the face or scalp. This procedure is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties. Thread Lift is usually performed using a local anaesthetic. Recovery is generally quick. Private costs for a thread lift vary depending on the area(s) being treated..

Age Spots

Uneven skin tone and unwanted pigmentation can make you look older than you are. According to a research study, hyperpigmentation can make you look up to 20 years older!

Pigmentation or hyper pigmentation is a common skin condition where some areas of the skin turn darker in color. It can happen due to both external and internal factors. The most common external factor is sunlight or ultraviolet radiation and internal factor being the effect of hormones. These factors can lead to over-production of and uneven distribution of melanin (the pigment which gives skin its color) in the skin.

This result in an uneven skin tone and age spots, making your skin looks dull. Pigmentation, uneven skin tone and age spots can be treated effectively with Altmis’s Age Peel off System. It is a customized solution that uses services and technologies along with efficacious home care products to enhance your skin’s glow.
