While lines occur naturally throughout life, certain lifestyle choices hasten and worsen their appearance. The most obvious are smoking and excessive sunbathing without the use of SPF protection.
Skin which is unprotected from UVA rays becomes dry and flaky, due to it losing the essential oils and moisture that keeps it looking supple. The nicotine in smoking, meanwhile, narrows blood vessels close to the skin's surface. This results in it not receiving as much oxygen and nutrients, like vitamin A, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
As you age, it is often necessary to use penetrating serums and hydrators that reach deeper into the dermis to deliver nutrients essential for maintaining skin health. Make sure to drink plenty of water, and eat a lot of fruit containing vitamin C - like oranges - as this stimulates collagen production naturally.
If you are looking for a non-invasive approach to aging we have a number of pioneering antiaging treatments. These include our unrivalled non-surgical facelift; the NovaLift along with collagen inducing Laser Facial treatments.
We also offer microneedling treatments and skin peels directed at kick starting the skin’s natural collagen production, increasing cell turnover and renewal and therefore dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If aging and lines are current concerns or you are looking to start preventative treatment book a consultation with Nova’s skin experts.
