Wrinkles, Lines & Folds
Aging is inevitable, but we can all aspire to age gracefully! The story of our lives is reflected in our skin and this can manifest itself as wrinkles, lines and folds. Healthy, nourished skin will show less signs of aging and appear smoother, brighter and younger!
Pre-mature aging is the result of extrinsic factors (pollution, UV rays, lifestyle, etc.) and intrinsic factors (genetics, stress, illness, etc.) taking a toll on your skin and body. This combination of factors can speed up the development of free radicals, stopping skin cells from performing at their best, and ultimately leading to a decline in elasticity and resilience.
At md cosmetic we can provide you with the latest tools and techniques to help you reverse the appearance of aging and prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
Causes of Wrinkles
Developing wrinkles, lines and folds are a natural process of aging that results from environmental exposure and other factors that result in skin damage. One common environmental factor is sun exposure. Repeatedly exposing your skin to harmful UV rays can cause wrinkles. Another environmental factor that may play a big role in premature aging, depending on where you live, is air pollution. Our skin is our bodies largest organ and greatest protection barrier from harmful substances and as such, often takes the most damage. Unhealthy life choices or hereditary conditions can also cause the skin to develop these signs of aging prematurely.
