Aging Skin

by Todd Case | Sep 16, 2015


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?

    l i f e s t y l e  f a c t o r s 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.


   how can I reverse the signs of aging?

   s u r g i ca l  r e j u v e n a t i o n Improves facial 

   harmony and can restore facial structure, reposition

   muscle, and redistribute fat.

   f a t  t r a n s f e r  Improves facial appearance by 

   adding volume.  Fat is removed through liposuction

   from the stomach,thighs or buttocks and transplanted

   to the face.

  l a s e r  r e s u r f a c i n g Improves surface wrinkles, 

  pigmentation, and surface irregularities.

  creases, fine lines, sculpts new contours, enhances

  features, and complements surgical rejuvenation.
