Ageing is a natural process that involves changes in both the body and mind as we get older. While ageing is inevitable, certain lifestyle choices can influence the rate at which it occurs and the overall quality of life during the ageing process. Healthy habits such as regular exercise, a balanced diet, adequate sleep, stress management, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can help promote healthy ageing.

Advancements in healthcare and medical research have also led to the development of various interventions and treatments aimed at slowing down the ageing process and addressing age-related conditions.

Facial ageing is multifaceted and influenced by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. The most common concerns our doctors treat at Dermagen Clinic include:

Common facial ageing concerns:

Collagen and elastin loss 

Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide the skin with its strength, elasticity, and youthful appearance. As we age, the production of these proteins decreases, leading to sagging and wrinkles.

Facial and neck volume loss

Facial and neck fat and bone loss can result in a sunken appearance, hollowed cheeks and jowls. Reduced volume can also contribute to the development of wrinkles, jowls, platysma bands on the neck and fine lines.

Ageing is a privilege. There are some good habits you can develop to stave off signs of facial ageing like:

  • Protect your skin from harmful UV radiation by wearing sunscreen daily and avoiding excessive sun exposure.

  • Eating a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can support skin health and vitality.

  • Staying hydrated is essential for skin elasticity and overall wellbeing.

  • Physical activity promotes circulation, which can contribute to healthy skin and a youthful complexion.

  • Quality sleep is crucial for skin repair and regeneration.

  • High stress levels can accelerate the ageing process, so stress management techniques like meditation and yoga can be beneficial.

  • Smoking can accelerate skin ageing and cause wrinkles, so quitting or avoiding smoking is advisable.

  • Establishing a consistent skincare routine with products tailored to your skin type and concerns can help maintain a youthful complexion.

Preventing visible signs of ageing

Dynamic and static wrinkles

Repeated facial expressions, such as smiling or frowning, can lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, which become more apparent over time.

As skin loses elasticity and volume, dynamic wrinkles can become static, meaning they are visible even when the face is at rest.

Skin texture and pigmentation changes

The texture of the skin can change with age due to a decrease in cell turnover and the accumulation of damage from environmental factors like UV radiation.
