As we age, our skin wrinkles because our epidermal cells become thinner and less “sticky”. When the cells become thinner, our skin becomes noticeably thinner, and the decreased in “stickiness” of the cells decreases the effectiveness of the barrier function, which allows moisture to release instead of being kept in the skin. This is what causes dryness of the skin. Every decade the epidermal cells decreases by 10%, and they divide more slowly making the skin less able to repair itself quickly. In addition to aging we produce less collagen which causes the skin to wrinkle and sag.
Causes of aging include;
- Exposure to suns UVA and UVB damaging rays
- Hormonal changes also affect the quality of our skin
- Facial expressions can also cause the skin to wrinkle as it loses elasticity. When tiny muscles around the eyes permanently contract, the result is frown lines and crows’ feet.
- Gravity is another factor related to aging. The efforts of gravity makes the loosening of the skin obvious causing “jowls” along the jaw and drooping eyelids.
At Apotheca Beauty our facialist will give your skin a thorough evaluation and come a customized treatment plan for your needs.
AGE / BROWN SPOTS
Age spots increase in numbers as we age and as we are exposed to the sun, they can vary in size, shape and colour. People who sunburn easily and freckle easily are more likely to develop age/brown spots than those who do not burn easily. They are likely to appear on areas exposed to the sun; back of hands, face, forearms, shoulders.
It is very important to apply sunblock daily immediately after applying face and body creams. At Apotheca Beauty our Facialist will give your skin a thorough evaluation and customize a treatment plan to help slowly diminish age spots. Of course the best treatment is to avoid excess sun exposure.
For many clients facial redness is a very treatable condition. At Apotheca Beauty our facialist will give your skin a thorough evaluation and come up with a customized treatment plan for your needs. We offer light therapy treatments that diminish signs of redness and help restore your skin color to more even tones.
Acne can be a very embarrassing and difficult problem to treat that affects persons of all ages, not just teenagers. Acne is a commonly used term for plugged pores, pimples, deep lumps, that occur on a person’s face, neck, back, shoulders, and sometimes chest. Acne can be very upsetting, embarrassing and even disfiguring. The early treatment of Acne is crucial in order to prevent permeant scarring. At Apotheca Beauty our facialist will give your skin a thorough evaluation and treatment plan, which might include LED light treatment, deep cleansing facial, and retinoids.
