What is ageing skin and how can we deal with it?
As we age we loose collagen which results in the loss of skin laxity. This causes the sagging of the skin which in turn allows wrinkles to form. Skin pigmentation also occurs as we age, usually a result of sun exposure thoughout your life.
Preventative measures can be taken to reduce ageing skin. Reducing your sun exposure and applying factor 50 can have a positive impact on this as well as keeping your skin hydrated by applying body lotion on a regular basis. But what can we do if your hands are already subject to ageing? At Klnik we offer a number of treatments to aid in rejuventing this area.
