The signs of aging can make you look tired, angry or even sad.  As skin ages, it becomes dry, dull and uneven and loses its structure and firmness. Some of the causes of aging are environmental damage and lifestyle factors.

   what ages skin?

     The consumption of alcohol can cause redness

     due to dilation of facial veins. Smoking can cause

     collagen breakdown and free-radical damage.

     e n v i r o n m e n t a l  f a c t o r s
      Years of sun exposure can change the skin pigment

      cells. This damage appears as sunspots and

      discoloration.  Potent UV rays can also cause 

      the appearance of flaky, dull skin.

       and surface irregularities. You may also

       consider radio frequency procedures that 

       offer no down time.  Laser and radio

       frequency treatments stimulate collagen

      production and produce a firming effect

      in lax skin.

       contours, enhances features, and complements

       fullness or treat moderate to severe frown lines.
