The natural ageing process plays a key role in the appearance of our skin over time. As we age, our skin cells lose their memory and slowly deteriorate, causing visible lines on our face. Our skin also becomes noticeably thinner and drier. The medical term for this is ‘intrinsic ageing’ and is a process mostly controlled by our genes. However, other factors such as pollution, smoking, alcohol, the contraceptive pill, sun exposure and other day-to-day elements can also contribute. The great news is that it is never too late to benefit from lifestyle changes and medi-aesthetic treatments that can help repair some of the damage. New, non-invasive treatments are now available to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, even out skin tone and restore your skin’s youthful fullness.
