Although aging is inevitable and eventually happens to all of us, Skin Technique provides the latest procedures and techniques to help you look like the best version of yourself at every age. The Skin Technique clinic in Vancouver has 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 becomes thinner and less collagen is produced in the body. Fat cells below the skin decrease in size, and elastin fibres break down. These changes can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of skin 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.
What Causes Aging Skin?
A loss of elasticity as we age, repeat facial expressions, and expose ourselves to the son causes aging skin. This loss of elasticity is due to a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps 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.
The main causes of aging skin include:
- UV Light Exposure.
- Repeated Facial Expressions.
Fortunately, there are several ways to combat the effects of aging skin, including using moisturizers and sunscreen and getting regular treatments at Skin Technique.
What are the Signs of Aging Skin?
The main signs that your skin is aging often comes down to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and age spots (also known as sun spots/liver spots).
Who to Choose for Anti-Aging Treatments in Vancouver?
At Skin Technique, we are here to “Honour Your Beauty”, working to revitalize and reveal your youthful skin through modern and innovative anti-aging treatments.

Thread lifts are a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable threads to lift and tighten the skin. The threads are placed in the skin with a needle, stimulating collagen production and allowing for a customized lifting effect. This treatment can be performed on your face, neck, and anywhere where sagging is a concern.
A Chemical Peel is an effective facial treatment that utilizes an acidic gel made of naturally occurring acids such as alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), glycolic or salicylic acid combined with other skincare products ingredients. The peel helps the top layers of the skin to flake off, revealing the youthful and firm skin underneath.
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport are one of the most common treatments used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and firm the skin.

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.
Why does skin elasticity change?
Elasticity changes naturally as we age, due to a loss of collagen. Our bodies stop producing as much collagen and elastin as we grow older, causing wrinkles to appear and our skin to become thinner, meaning it’s harder for the body to repair itself. Other factors can affect skin elasticity, such as sun exposure, air pollution, poor nutrition, and smoking.
