Although aging is inevitable and eventually happens to all of us, at Skin Technique, we provide the latest procedures and techniques to help you look like the best version of yourself at every age. We have a variety of treatments and skin care options that help slow or even reverse the signs of aging.
What Is Aging Skin?
As we age, our skin changes in a number of ways. Skin becomes thinner and less elastic. Fat cells below the skin decrease in size, and collagen and elastin fibres break down. These changes can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of radiance. In addition, the production of new skin cells slows down, and the natural process of exfoliation becomes less efficient. As a result, dead skin cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, making it dull and dry. Sun exposure can also cause premature aging by damaging collagen fibers and increasing the risk of developing age spots.
What Causes Aging Skin?
The most visible sign of aging skin is wrinkles, which form as the skin loses its elasticity. This loss of elasticity is due to a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep skin firm and youthful. Another cause of aging skin is a loss of moisture. The body produces less oil as we age, leading to dry, dull skin. Additionally, exposure to the sun and other environmental stressors can damage the skin and contribute to the signs of aging. Fortunately, there are several ways to combat the effects of aging skin, including using moisturizers and sunscreen and getting regular treatments at Skin Technique.
As with any injectable procedure at our Vancouver clinic, it is essential to have an experienced and skilled injector that can deliver desired results and manage the entire process from the initial consultation to the follow-up after your appointment.
We only use the highest quality dermal fillers at our Vancouver clinic to add volume, shape, structure and contour to the face. The volume disappears as we age, revealing sunken skin and wrinkles. Our variety of treatments restores volume loss wherever it occurs.
Forever Young BBL™ Laser
The Forever Young BBL is a broadband laser treatment at our Vancouver clinic that is the only device on the market that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan. With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, your skin will look clearer, smoother, and much younger.
HALO™ Fractional Resurfacing
The Halo Laser is a revolutionary fractional resurfacing treatment at our Vancouver clinic that treats some of the most common skin damage problems, including sun damage, aging, discoloration, uneven skin tone and scarring. We are the only clinic to offer the innovative Halo laser treatment in downtown Vancouver.
Ultherapy is the ONLY FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest by delivering collagen-boosting energy precisely and accurately to the treatment area.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Also known as the Vampire Facial, the PRP treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses a patient’s own blood to repair and reconstruct problem areas. Platelets are the components of our blood that contain multiple growth factors and nutrients. Our enriched platelets can rejuvenate the skin and target problem areas like acne scars, wrinkles, and volume loss when administered to the skin.
The PRP treatment is a game-changer when it comes to achieving desired results. We often use PRP in combination with various treatments at our Vancouver clinic.
There are a variety of products available to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin tone and all the conditions that can arise as a result of aging.
Aging Skin FAQ
What is the best way to treat aging skin?
There are many ways to treat aging skin, but some methods are more effective than others. One of the best ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is to use a retinoid cream. Retinoids stimulate collagen production and help to smooth out the skin’s surface.
Aside from booking routine injectables, another effective method for treating aging skin is laser skin resurfacing. This technique uses short pulses of light to remove damaged skin cells and promote the growth of new, healthy cells. For best results, it is often necessary to undergo multiple sessions.
In addition, regular use of sunscreen and moisturizer can help to prevent further damage and keep the skin looking its best. Using a combination of these techniques makes it possible to achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin at any age.
Can you repair aged skin?
While we can’t turn back the hands of time, there are some things we can do to help repair aged skin. Diet is one factor that can influence the health of our skin. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables provides the skin with antioxidants that can help fight damage from free radicals.
In addition, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping skin looking plump and hydrated. Topical treatments can also help repair aged skin. Look for products that contain retinol or vitamin C, both of which have been shown to boost collagen production and smooth away wrinkles.
How can I regain elasticity in my skin?
One of the most popular options is microdermabrasion, which involves using a fine abrasive to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This can help to improve circulation and encourage cell turnover, resulting in softer, more supple skin. Another option is laser skin resurfacing, which uses light energy to stimulate collagen production, which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
