The one thing we can do nothing about is our chronological age – the clock ticks, we just have to do what we can to stop it showing on our faces! Our blog here talks a bit more about why our skin ages, but there are things that we can do to slow it down and in some cases reverse the damage already done.
We have many clients who are very self-conscious about redness and thread veins on their faces, noses, cheeks and chins, and age spots or sun spots that have appeared over the years.
Who doesn’t love a bit of sun? We all do but our faces and hands (and often our chests/décolletage) are exposed throughout daylight ours – even indoors, as UVA light (the one that causes ageing and pigmentation) can travel through glass, so even if you work from an office indoors your skin is still not safe.
As a result these areas end up looking discoloured, with mottled and uneven skin tone, the skin loses elasticity and firmness, and we get wrinkles, lines and a general ageing of the skin.
