Young looking skin reflects homogenous light as it is smooth, radiant and wrinkle-free. As the face ages, darker areas begin to appear on the face which causes light to be reflected less homogeneously thus creating an older looking face. The darker areas could be the result of sun spots, roughness of skin, shadows created by wrinkles, loss of /decrease in collagen, loss of fat (predominantly in the mid-face), and loss of bone in the face.
Aging can also be classified into two main categories which call for different treatment protocols: chronological aging (aging by years) versus photoaging (aging of the skin caused by sun exposure).
Treatment protocols for the aging face, therefore, must be determined once a consultation with a specialist dermatologist has been carried out. The doctor’s recommendations will be discussed together with your concerns and expectations in order to establish the best possible rejuvenation regime for you. The goal is to achieve harmony and balance.
