Fight These 3 Causes of Aging

As you get older, you may be experiencing unwanted changes to your skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, and droopiness. Here are the 4 main causes of aging and how the customized anti-aging treatments at our Calgary clinic can help you maintain a youthful glow.

It’s no secret that as you grow older, one of the most visible signs of aging is often the changing condition of your skin, which is mostly due to the fact that you begin to produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid. Environmental effects, pollution, sun exposure, stress, and lifestyle habits such as smoking can all increase this effect.

Over time, this combination of factors contributes to the three Ds of aging:

  • Deterioration: Unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, and changes to skin texture.
  • Descent: Droopy or sagging skin
  • Deflation: Loss of fullness or volume

3 Main Causes of Aging and How to Prevent Them

As your body ages, the appearance of your skin begins to change. Some of these changes are intrinsic (caused by genes) and can start as early as the age of 25, when the natural regenerative process starts to slow down. Others changes are caused by extrinsic factors, such as stress, poor nutrition, and excess exposure to the sun.

Here are the 3 main causes of skin aging:

1. Loss of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body and it plays an important role in how your skin looks, feels, and functions. By retaining water, it helps hydrate your skin and enhance your overall appearance. As you age, your cells will gradually lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid and this causes your skin to:

  • Wrinkle and develop fine lines
  • Become thinner and more fragile
  • Lose elasticity and volume
  • Become drier, looser, and less smooth
Customized Facial Fillers at our Calgary Clinic

At GLVC, we offer our patients customized cosmetic filler procedures which work to replenish your levels of hyaluronic acid and give you a refreshed look. These will work to smooth wrinkles and restore volume, reversing any unwanted signs of aging.



2. Sun Damage

Did you know that many scientific estimates have shown that up to 80-90% of how young or old you look for your age is due to how much sun exposure you’ve sustained over your lifetime? In fact, UV rays from the sun are the primary cause of:

  • Unwanted wrinkles
  • Pigmentation sunspots
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Degradation of skin texture

Over time, the sun’s UV rays damages fibers in the skin called elastin and this causes the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching.

What you can do: While nothing can completely undo sun damage, it’s never too late to begin protecting yourself from harmful UV rays. Delay any changes associated with aging by using a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when you are outdoors.



3. Smoking

Some of the toxins in cigarette smoke damage collagen and elastin, which are the fibrous components of skin that keep it looking firm and supple. This damage speeds up skin aging, making smokers more prone to wrinkles on their face. It also leads to:

  • Smokers lines, crows feet, and other unwanted facial lines
  • Higher risk of skin cancer
  • Sagging skin Dry and itchy skin
  • Changes in skin tone and skin staining

How Quitting Smoking Can Improve Your Appearance

While wrinkles that have developed may not disappear entirely when you stop smoking, the return of normal blood flow to your skin cells will bring oxygen and nutrients, allowing your skin to look healthy and youthful once again.
