The Signs of Aging

Aging is a natural process that affects everyone, but understanding its signs can help you take proactive steps to maintain a youthful appearance. At Medical Aesthetic, we’re here to support both men and women in addressing their skin concerns with expert care and tailored treatments.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The first signs of aging often appear as fine lines and wrinkles, resulting from repeated facial expressions and the gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. These are commonly found around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead, and mouth.

Loss of Skin Elasticity

Over time, your skin may lose its firmness and elasticity, leading to sagging around the jawline, neck, and cheeks. This is a natural part of aging, but there are effective ways to counteract it.

Thinning Skin

Aging can make the skin thinner and more fragile, increasing susceptibility to bruising and giving it a more translucent appearance, especially on the hands and forearms.

Bone Resorption

As we age, the underlying bone structure diminishes, particularly in the face. This contributes to a loss of facial volume, sagging skin, and the formation of jowls.

Volume Loss

Reduction in subcutaneous fat causes the face to lose its youthful plumpness, leading to a more hollow appearance in the cheeks and temples.

Age Spots and Hyperpigmentation

Prolonged sun exposure and aging cause dark spots and uneven skin tone, often appearing on the face, hands, and other sun-exposed areas.

Dry Skin

Aging skin produces less oil, resulting in dryness and a rougher texture. This can also accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Visible Blood Vessels

Broken capillaries and more pronounced veins become more visible due to thinning skin and loss of collagen, especially on the face.

Changes in Skin Texture

The skin’s surface becomes rougher and less smooth due to a decrease in cell turnover and the accumulation of dead skin cells.

Deepening of Facial Folds

Nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth) and marionette lines (lines from the mouth to the chin) become more pronounced as skin loses elasticity and volume.

Understanding these signs helps in developing targeted treatments to address the specific concerns associated with aging, promoting a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Combating Premature Aging

Premature aging occurs when skin cells age faster than they should. In Australia, where 62% of the population is over 30, understanding and addressing these signs is essential. Our skin experts at Medical Aesthetic understand the physiological changes occurring in your skin and are here to help you slow or reverse the effects of aging.

The Role of Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid

These three proteins, produced by fibroblasts, are crucial for maintaining youthful skin. Unfortunately, fibroblast re-division ceases between 18-20 years of age, leading to a decline in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production by 2% each year from age 20-25 onwards.

UV exposure further accelerates the breakdown of these proteins by increasing collagenase and elastase enzymes, which degrade healthy collagen and elastin when they run out of damaged ones to break down.

Support Your Skin with Essential Vitamins

Fibroblasts need collagen precursors like vitamins A, C, and E to produce collagen. Many people are deficient in these vitamins, impacting the fibroblasts’ ability to keep skin looking youthful.
