What are the most common signs of aging skin?
Aging skin commonly appears in the form of age spots, wrinkles, facial volume loss, and skin laxity. As we age, we may also experience uneven skin tone and texture. Uneven skin tone is when the pigmentation of the skin is not evenly distributed. Such uneven tone can occur due to skin blotches, dark patches, pigmentation, and brown spots – conditions in which pigment isn’t evenly distributed.
Uneven skin texture is different; it feels unpleasant and gives skin a lifeless, dull look. Uneven skin texture can be a result of sun exposure, which breaks down the collagen and elastin that gives skin its smooth texture. Aging is also a culprit of uneven skin texture. As we age, surface skin cells don’t shed as quickly, which causes dead skin cells to build up and skin to appear dry and blotchy. Dry and dehydrated skin also affects its texture.
Which areas of the body are affected the most?
The hands are one of the more common spots for age spots to appear since they see more sun exposure than other areas of our body. Using moisturizers and other skin care products can help fight the aging process, but aesthetic treatments provide more immediate and dramatic results.
Often a neglected area, the chest begins to show signs of aging with spots and crepey skin as we age – making it hard to hide our age. There are a variety of techniques available today to address age signs of the chest area.
Finally, the face will show the most signs of aging skin. Not only are sun damage and wrinkles present, but volume is lost in the lips, cheeks, and temples. If your aging skin has you feeling self-conscious, request a complimentary consultation at Doctor Iggy Aesthetic Medicine today.
