Ageing Skin and PhotoAgeing

Skin ageing results from biological changes in the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. In the epidermis, barrier function is reduced causing an increase in transepidermal water loss (TEWL). TEWL begins and the water from the blood circulation is diffused through the dermis and epidermis finally to evaporate at the surface. Skin cell turnover slows and there are pigment production changes causing dryness and an uneven skin tone. This results in fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, dullness and decreased skin tone.

Ageing of the skin can be divided into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic.

Intrinsic ageing, known as natural or chronological ageing, normally begins in our mid-20s and is determined by genetics. Extrinsic ageing accounts for up to 90% of skin ageing and is largely controllable. The most common causes are:

  • Sun exposure – the major cause, often referred to as Photoageing
  • Pollution and environmental stressors
  • Lifestyle choices, such as smoking and alcohol consumption
  • Stress

The good news is that you can reverse some of this damage and prevent future negative effects on the skin.

What does ageing skin look like?

While the visible aging process varies from person to person, some common skin changes include:

  • Dehydration
  • Dull appearance
  • Rough texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lack of firmness
  • Loss of fat and fullness
  • Loss of elasticity or a slower “snapback” when skin is pulled

Skin conditions we treat with AlumierMD

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin causes a darkened appearance to the skin in either small or large areas. Pigmentation is the natural color of a person’s skin and it is related to melanin production. Melanin protects skin cells and their DNA by absorbing the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UVR). Darker skin types, in general, are more susceptible to hyperpigmentation than lighter skin types because their skin naturally contains more melanin.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial flushing, redness, telangiectasias (visible vessels), bumps and pimples. Rosacea is most often seen in fair-skinned people between the ages of 30 and 50 and typically affects the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. It is more common in women but more aggressive in men.

Sensitive Skin

Individuals with a heightened intolerance to products and the environment are said to have sensitive skin. They may experience redness, discomfort, bumps and irritation.

Causes of sensitivity include: Skin disorders like eczema or rosacea; overly dry skin due to a compromised hydrolipid barrier; over exposure to irritants like wind, sun and harsh topical ingredients. In all cases, the skin’s moisture barrier is impaired, which leads to dryness and irritation.

Large Pores

Sebum (oil) is produced to protect our skin, making it waterproof and preventing it from becoming dry. Oil glands produce sebum that moves through the lining of each pore and then onto the skin’s surface. If overproduced, that oil mixes with dead skin cells in the pore and causes clogging and swelling.

Large pores can also be a result of an aging skin. The production of collagen and elastin decreases with age and a loss of elasticity makes the pores appear larger. Gender and genetics are also factors. Men generally have larger pores than women, although hormonal fluctuations in females may contribute to enlarged pores.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum (oil) and is associated with acne (pimples), large pores, blackheads and a noticeable shine to the skin. Genetics and hormones play a key role in how much oil our skin produces.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of moisture and natural oils in the epidermis and can cause scaling, itching and fine lines. Dryness is usually related to a skin barrier issue that allows excess moisture to escape. This issue is referred to as increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL).

The main causes of dry skin are: Winter weather; ageing; genetics; hot showers; excessive exposure to water and harsh soaps; the sun.

You may experience mild redness, irritation and peeling when using the retinol based products (Retinol Resurfacing Serum 0.25. 0.5 & 1.0). It is recommended to acclimatise the skin to this ingredient, by starting with a low percentage retinol product first, and increasing from every couple of days to daily use. The retinol based products in AlumierMD use a microencapsulated technology which is designed to offer a slow release of the retinol into the skin to minimise any irritation, but preconditioning is still advised, especially for the 1.0 concentration.
