When we’re born, our face is soft and smooth, like a baby’s bottom some would say, not a wrinkle or line in sight. Unfortunately, no matter how many creams we put on our skin through the years, we can’t stop the inevitable from happening. However, at Revere Clinics, a Harley Street cosmetic clinic, with a second location in Northwood, our team of experts can help reverse the effects of ageing with our bespoke and effective treatments.
What causes our skin to age?
There are many factors that contribute to ageing skin such as normal ageing, exposure to the sun, loss of subcutaneous support and pollution. Other factors vary per person based on their personal experiences, including stress levels, weight, their daily facial movement and sleep position.1 Although ageing happens to everyone, it does vary from person to person as each person is different and therefore their skin will react differently.
Preventing the tell-tale signs that come with ageing
We’ve previously mentioned the different ways which you can prevent ageing through eliminating junk food, consuming less or no alcohol and not smoking. Cutting out these bad habits out of your life will give your skin the vital oxygen, nutrients and water it needs to stay rejuvenated to keep you looking young for as long as possible.
Other factors that are preventable is the exposure of your skin to harmful UV rays, which permeate your skin and damage its elastin fibres and collagen. Therefore, it’s important to wear sunscreen with high SPF and the appropriate clothing, regardless of the tan you’re hoping to achieve. 2
What are the effects of ageing on our skin?
A number of things can happen to our skin once the effects of ageing set in. A common side effect is the thinning of the epidermis, which is the outer skin layer. As well, the number of pigments containing cell (melanocytes) diminishes, which is what causes the skin to look thinner and more translucent. Additionally, the tell-tale age spots that appear are usually caused by sun exposure – another effect of sun exposure can be changes in the skin’s strength and elasticity, a condition known as solar elastosis or elastosis if not caused by the sun. 3 These are just some of the effects ageing can have on your skin, all of which can be reversed with the correct treatment(s).
Rejuvenating your face just takes a quick lift
While ageing skin can be the cause of much distress, it doesn’t need to be, as there are a number of ways to rejuvenate your face, turning back time and leaving your skin feeling brand new. At Revere Clinics, we have an array of treatments from laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted facial hair to dermal fillers, which help plump up the skin – however, one treatment we would highly recommend is our Brow Lift.
Revere’s Brow Lift is a non-invasive solution that will smooth and rejuvenate the upper face. Through strategic injections of Botox, it will lift the brow area opening up the eye area for a subtle, naturally youthful appearance – greatly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the upper face. Results can be seen almost immediately, just three days after treatment and will last anywhere from three to six months.
No matter if you’ve spent years taking careful care of your skin or wish to repair the effects of bad habits we are all guilty of, our team at Revere Clinics can help. Get in touch today and find out which one of Revere’s treatments, tailored to each individual’s needs, can help rejuvenate your face in a pinch.
