- Stimulating the production of fibroblasts—the cells responsible for collagen production. The collagen helps fill in wrinkles and fine lines.
- Stimulating the production of keratinocytes—new skin cells that give the face a more even, healthy appearance.
- Increasing the production of hyaluronic acid by fibroblasts—hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that binds water. The increase in HA levels greatly improves the hydration of the skin.
- Stimulating the production of nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator—the improved blood flow helps nourish new skin cells with an improved supply of nutrients. The increased blood flow to the face also produces a more youthful glow.
Skin changes are related to environmental factors, genetic makeup, nutrition and other factors. The greatest single factor, though, is sun exposure. This can be seen by comparing areas of your body that have regular sun exposure with areas that are protected from sunlight. Naturally, as we age, our skin undergoes many changes.
- Turnover of new skin cells (keratinization) decreases.
- The natural process of skin erosion, the sloughing off of dead skin cells, slows down and becomes uneven, giving the skin a dry and rough character.
- Decrease in hyaluronic acid, a natural water-binding substance found in large quantities in younger skin.
- Collagen becomes disorganized and fragmented
- the number of melanocytes decreases, but the remaining melanocytes increase in size. This results in paler skin, with some large pigmented spots (age spots, liver spots, lentigos) that may appear in sun-exposed areas.
- Changes in the connective tissue reduce the skin’s strength and elasticity. This is known as elastosis and is especially pronounced in sun-exposed areas (solar elastosis). Elastosis produces the leathery, weather-beaten appearance common to farmers, sailors and others who spend a lot of time outdoors.
- The blood vessels of the dermis become more fragile, which in turn leads to bruising, bleeding under the skin, cherry angiomas and other conditions.
- Sebaceous glands produce less oil as you age. Men experience a minimal decrease, usually after the age of 80. Women gradually produce less oil beginning after menopause. This can make it harder to keep the skin moist, resulting in dryness and itchiness.
- The subcutaneous fat layer, which provides insulation and padding, thins. This increases risk of skin injury and reduces ability to maintain body temperature.
- sagging skin
- thin, translucent skin
- hollowed cheek and eye sockets (loss of fat)
- dry skin
- furrows in brow or forehead
- drooping eyelids
- hair loss, unwanted hair, graying hair
