Aging Skin

about Aging skin changes are related to environmental factors, genetic makeup, nutrition, and other factors. The greatest single factor, though, is sun exposure. You can see this by comparing areas of your body that have regular sun exposure with areas that are protected from sunlight.

Natural pigments seem to provide some protection against sun-induced skin damage. Blue-eyed, fair-skinned people show more aging skin changes than people with darker, more heavily pigmented skin.

Aging skin looks thinner, paler, and more translucent. Pigmented spots including age spots or "liver spots" may appear in sun-exposed areas.

Changes in the connective tissue reduce the skin's strength and elasticity. The blood vessels of the dermis become more fragile. This leads to bruising, bleeding under the skin often referred to as cherry angiomas.

Sebaceous glands produce less oil as you age. Men experience a minimal decrease, most often 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.

Our skin is at the mercy of many forces as we age: sun, harsh weather, and bad habits. But we can take steps to help our skin stay supple and fresh-looking. The best strategy at any age is prevention.

At-home treatment

Because most skin changes are related to sun exposure, prevention is a lifelong process.

We offer medical-grade skin care for aging skin geared towards a few different goals: removing damaged layers of skin, rejuvenating skin, and nourishing skin to prevent future damage.

Before beginning any anti-aging treatment plan, we recommend booking a Consultation with one of our certified Skin Specialists. We will take the time address your specific needs and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the various anti-aging procedures offered at our clinic. Our experts will then offer recommendations as to the best treatment plan for achieving your desired results and together we will customize a treatment plan that will best fit your personal goals.

The following active ingredients have been proven effective for the treatment of aging skin:

Growth Factors - Growth factors are natural substances made by skin cells to maintain healthy skin. They are responsible for supporting the repair of damaged skin, making components that provide firmness and elasticity to the skin while helping to maintain skin's protective functions. Best for: All Skin Types Recommended Products: ZO Growth Factor Serum, ZO Growth Factor Eye Serum

AHA’s- AHA’s help peel away the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. After use, you’ll likely notice that your skin is smoother to the touch. Best for: All Skin Types Recommended Products: ZO Complexion Renewal Pads, ZO Exfoliation Accelerator

Hyaluronic Acid - Aging skin loses its firmness, becomes less supple and often looks dehydrated. A product that contains hyaluronic acid can replenish the moisture that aging skin is lacking and improve the appearance of fine lines and make the skin look more smooth. Best for: All Skin Types Recommended Products:

Retinoids - Topical retinoids are another acne treatment with scar-smoothing benefits. In addition to speeding up your cell regeneration and improving your skin’s texture, retinoids can also help reduce discoloration and make wrinkles less noticeable. Best for: All Skin Types Recommended Products: ZO Wrinkle & Texture Repair, ZO Retinol Skin Brightener

Sunscreen - It is vital to wear sunscreen every day over scars. Sun exposure can darken scars or make them more noticeable. Best for: All Skin Types. Recommended Product: All Sunscreens
