What causes the skin to age?

It is important to look at skin health because skin slows down its ability to produce good collagen and elasticity from the age of 28. The younger you look, the better you feel about yourself. But ageing is an unstoppable process and, as the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of our skin change. Age, hormones, sun exposure, smoking all have part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin feels more fragile and less elastic. As our age increases the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin decreases causing us to retain less water. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active, and our skin becomes drier. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth and it also loses its youthful colour and glow. While all these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin, causing it to sag.

There are two major components of facial ageing:

* Dynamic lines which form only when moving the muscle, like a frown for example.
* Static lines, which are wrinkles that have become ingrained into the skin due to volume loss.

Treating both of these main components of facial ageing leads to natural, balanced and refined outcomes:

- Wrinkle relaxing injections relax hyperactive muscles and therefore treats dynamic facial lines.
- Facial fillers replaces lost volume and treats static facial lines by replenishing the natural collagen and elastin found in the skin.

Anti wrinkle injections

Ilchester Replacing Teeth

Anti-wrinkle injections are a fuss-free and straightforward option if you are looking to soften lines and wrinkles, or to lift your brows or jowls. They can also help to slim the lower face and can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to create a more natural looking, non-surgical face lift.

Dermal fillers

Ilchester Other Facialaesthetics

Dermal fillers plump out fine lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance. At Ilchester Dental Care we use a dermal filler called hyaluronic acid (HA), which is something that already naturally occurs in the body.
