Anti Aging FAQ's
Q. What Happens to Skin When We Age?
A. Both heredity and environment play a big role in how skin ages. Environment—sun damage and pollution—plays the biggest role in the way skin functions. Sun damage is the worst culprit since it is cumulative. The damage begins from youth.
As we age, skin cells divide at a slower rate as they lose their capacity to renew themselves. The average cell renewal rate for a baby is 14 days. For a teenager, the rate is 3-4 weeks, a middle-aged adult 4-7 weeks, and a mature adult (50+) 7-12 weeks or more. This progressively longer span of cell turnover allows for much more to go wrong. About 20% of the cells clump together and are nonfunctional before they reach the skin's surface, having died on the way to the top. The result? The first layer of the skin (stratum corneum) becomes thicker and denser, fine lines deepen, and skin loses its clarity.
Another factor that causes progressive development of wrinkles and leads to sagging skin is the loss of collagen fibers, the building blocks of firmness and elasticity. Collagen, Greek for "glue," is a connective tissue that gives the face and body much of its shape. Fibers of collagen are woven together throughout the body like threads of fabric to form a framework for new cells and blood vessels to grow.
The way your skin looks is directly related to the way in which it is supported. As we age, the loss of small blood vessels and a decrease in new capillaries begin to cut off the blood supply that nourishes the skin. Our faces begin to look less healthy when the rate at which irritants and toxins are removed decreases. Skin becomes more prone to free radical damage (which is really damage to the cells and DNA).
These degenerative conditions of aging skin progress with time. But some of them can be minimized or reversed with a carefully applied anti-aging program. To find out if you are ready for an anti-aging program, do the simple test below. If "yes" is the answer to any of these questions, it is time to start reversing the clock.
The Skin Test
- Do you see fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and neck?
- Does your skin not "bounce back" when lifted with your fingers?
- Do you notice skin discolorations such as dark and light spots?
- Does your skin appear to be thinner with visible capillaries?
- Does your skin feel dry and rough and look sallow, lackluster and dull?
