From the start
As each decade passes, you may begin to notice changes in the appearance and texture of your skin. The beauty sins from your teens and 20s may start to creep up on you when you reach your forties as sun exposure, poor skin care and diet start to take their toll.
Sun damage wreaks havoc on collagen by destroying its natural fibres, which keep the skin firm and toned. Coupled with collagen breakdown, women in their forties don’t regularly shed the top layer of skin as they once did.
Don’t worry, all is not lost, it just means you need to step up your skincare regimen. Assuming you already have a good basic skincare routine in place, the experts at Elysium advise the introduction of a product with retinol such as ‘Total Retinol-A Crème’ from IMAGE Skincare. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is used to treat, restore and heal aging skin, accelerating collagen production which helps improve fine lines and wrinkles. It is essential to use a good SPF 30 everyday more so especially when using any products with retinol or glycolic.
Through the years
Women in their 40s and 50s experience particularly dramatic hormonal changes because they either approach or undergo the menopause, which causes a dramatic decline in the levels of various hormones and growth factors. The loss of these hormones causes a decline in the synthesis of collagen, elastin and other components of skin matrix, reducing the production of sebum leading to skin thinning and dryness. To counteract these effects, use a specific day and night treatment cream that will work on collagen and elastin.
Micro-needling is an ever increasingly popular and safe skin renewal technique which restores the youthful, healthy appearance of your skin with almost no down time. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, pigmentation and fine lines. The results are brighter, tighter, rejuvenated and younger looking skin.
In our 60s cell damage will have accumulated in many tissues; the skin is one of the most affected. As a result, the rate at which the skin renews and repairs itself becomes much slower. Development of uneven pigmentation, discolorations, broken capillaries, redness and other blemishes associated with skin aging become more pronounced.
IPL treatments are the preferred treatment here as the light penetrates deep into the skin tissue to stimulate the cells beneath the skin’s surface, and trigger the body’s response to eliminates injured tissues and dead skin cells. It can treat multiple conditions simultaneously; including broken veins and capillaries, redness of the skin, age spots, and pigmentation. In addition to improving uneven skin colour, sun damage, facial redness (Rosacea), and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface, firming and rejuvenating the skin.
