Aging skin is characterized by changes in the texture, color, and elasticity of the skin.
The main factors that play a role in the aging processes are: heredity, environment, and lifestyle. We cannot change our genetic makeup, and our environment, but certainly we are responsible for our lifestyle choices.
Smoking has a well-documented negative effect on our complexion. Nicotine shrinks blood vessels and capillaries resulting in decreased oxygen supply to the skin. The decreased cell renewal makes it very difficult for collagen fibers to reproduce and repair its DNA, and results in excessive wrinkles and dull skin.
Sun damage makes the skin older because ultraviolet light creates wrinkles by altering the skin’s DNA leading to less collagen and elastin. Sun exposure encourages the production of skin melanocytes that in turn create hyperpigmentation (sun spots).
At the Aurora DeJuliis MD European Medi-Spa in Montclair NJ, we offer the latest laser technologies such as: IPL, Fractional Resurfacing, and Yag, along with Radio Frequency, Vivace and Microneedling.
Fillers for volume replacement, lines and wrinkles, scars, and hollowness under the eyes (tear troughs) can be offered. Neuromodulators such as Botox and Xeomin can be used to soften muscles responsible for expression lines.
