Health Watch
How does the skin age?
A scientific perspective.

Skin rejuvenation and anti-aging procedures are very much on the fore front of scientific research and aesthetic treatment formulations as technology and science join forces to identify ways of making us look younger.

This article will examine the factors that effect aging and how the cells of our body and skin respond to the process and the changes that occur.

By understanding these changes it empowers you as a client to make good, educated decisions on what you want for your skin. The Effect Of Aging On The Skin The aging skin is easily recognizable due to following characteristics:

Loss of elasticity

Sagging jowls

Appearance of wrinkles

Appearance of parchment like skin

There are two main processes of skin aging: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic Aging is involuntary and reflects the genetic background of the person and is therefore inevitable, whereas extrinsic aging is caused by external factors ie sun expos ure, poor nutrition, smoking and alcohol, plus many other things. Extrinsic aging is the result of premature aging – most common of which is sun exposure. Always try to wear protective clothing such as a wide brimmed hat, long sleeves and swim suits made from fabrics that deflect the harmful sun. Always wear a sunscreen that is broad spectrum based (UVA and UVB) and has a built in sun protector of a minimum of SPF 15+. The Dermalogica Waterproof Solar Spray SPF25 for everyone face in the family. Apply it 20 mins before going out into the sun and then continue every two hours, or as required.

Other factors that are related to extrinsic aging are poor health and inadequate nutrition, substance abuse such as alcohol, cigarettes or drugs, varying degrees of subjective stress and poor problems leading to kyphsosis (spinal problems). Additionally, continual repetition of facial expressions lead to the development of wrinkling, and lack of exercise leads to poor health which is evident in and aging person. There are numerous signs of photo-aging (sun damage) that are fundamentally related to a persons skin colour and more importantly the persons exposure to the sun.

Unfortunately, brown skin is thought of as ‘healthy’ by a white skinned persons standards, this results in the beginning of a major health risk by the person wanting the ‘healthy’ look. Aging is apparent in ones skin through the manifestations of telagiectasia, skin wrinkling, leather like skin, lentigenosis and hyper-pigmentation. Collagen in the dermis becomes calcified leading to deep lines and furrows and wrinkling of the superficial skin. Comprehensive recommendations for sun protection to prevent premature aging caused by the sun include: Avoid deliberate sun tanning

Avoid the sun when it is at its hottest during the day between 10 and 4.

Extremes of environmental conditions – cold / hot, leads to the loss of trans-epidermal water loss, which leads to the skin becoming dehy drated and dry as well as poor sleeping habits and habitual specific sleeping positions for years “sleeplines”. The good news it that extrinsic aging can be controlled with help from yourself and your beauty therapist. You can delay this aging with self control, personal choice and the use of good daily skin care.

The aging dermis has the following characteristics marked by the changes in collagen production as well as the development of cross linkages of elastin fiber. This leads to the appearance of the dermis ‘becoming thinner and translucent’. The collagen in the elderly is seen as thickened fibers that appear to be larger and courser wrinkles. This is due to the loss in bonding strength between the epidermis and the dermis, leading to the wrinkling of the skin.

Loss of skin elasticity and resiliency increase with aging. This is due to the fact that the aging elastic fibers undergo the chemical process of cross-linkages and become somewhat calcified in this proc ess. The external appearance of cross-linkages is seen as aging skin. Other changes in the dermis layer of the skin reflect the gradual atrophy of the sudoriferous glands and the sebaceous glands, resulting in mature skin becoming dryer and scalier. Aging skin loses its ability to retain water and therefore susceptible to becoming dryer in low humidity environments.

As we become older it also becomes more difficult to regulate our body temperature and therefore we are more effected by heat exhaustion.

Why Do I Have?:

Grey Hair : Decrease in the number and activity of the hair follicles as well as the gradual loss of pigment in the hair. Thickening and development of ridges on nails: Due to the increasing deposition of calcium as well as loss of sensitivity to touch.

What is the answer?!

Protection against environmental aging: the use of sunscreens for sun protections. Supported by Dermalogica Solar Defence System that also give the skin added support against solar aging. Should be our first line of defense.

Protection against transdermal water loss: ensuring appropriate hydration levels will enhance the skin and retain its youthful appearance. In fact, if the skin is dehydrated this will compromise the skins ability to absorb and respond as effectively to your rejuvenation treatments. Therefore, maintaining optimum hydration levels in the skin is paramount to the success of your treatments.

Exfoliation: As the skins exfoliation process slows down with aging, effective remo val of dead skin through appropriate means such as Pelactiv peels, will support the skins renewal process and allow for better penetration of active ingredients.

Support collagen production: As collagen is the building block of the skin and responsible for keeping the skin dense and firm, procedure that stimulate collagen production and support its integrity should also be at the cornerstone of any treatment that addresses skin aging.

Ask your therapist to help tailor face and body treatments to ensure you are taking the best care of your face and body.
