Get rid of Ageing Skin / Age Spots


An aging skin is characterized by a tired, drawn appearance with loss of volume and radiance which may include pigmentation, wrinkles, sagging skin, dryness, sun damage and loss of vitality. As we age there is a loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid resulting in skin that no longer appears firm, plump and smooth. The tone becomes uneven with age spots, sun damage and rough skin. Fortunately there are numerous options available that can help target these issues ranging from lifestyle changes, topical cosmeceuticals to aesthetic treatments.

Lifestyle changes that can help to minimise ageing skin

  • Careful sun exposure: Whilst the sun is an important source of vitamin D, it is well known to be the most important harmful factor when it comes to ageing skin with 90% of the features of premature skin resulting from exposure to UVA and UVB rays.
  • Don’t smoke: Smoking narrows blood vessels and reduces the amount of oxygen available to the skin. In addition, harmful free radicals are released.
  • Healthy Diet: The most important source of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are obtained in our diet.

Below are a list of treatments offered to improve ageing skin. Please click on the links to find out more:
