Lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity

Definition

The first areas of the face to show signs of ageing are the eye area and the sides of the mouth. With time all areas of the face can demonstrate signs of ageing.

Collagen and elastin are the skin’s primary support proteins responsible for giving the skin contour, fullness and elasticity. As we age this vital support structure and framework declines and collapses giving way to lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness.

Appearance

Lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness/elasticity can be characterised by the depth of ageing and the loss of volume of the skin.

Sun-damaged skin

Definition

Sun exposure is responsible for accelerating the ageing process, which can result in premature ageing. Ultraviolet light (UV) damages the skin’s natural anti-ageing reservoir, depleting the skin of vitamins, essential fatty acids and key proteins, such as collagen and elastin, leading to lines and wrinkles. Coupled with the natural chronological signs of ageing and a slower cell renewal the signs of sun damage become visible and affect the appearance of the skin.

Sun-damaged skin is characterised by:

  • dryness
  • dullness
  • uneven skin tone/texture
  • hyper pigmentation
