Shield Your Eyes
We are all guilty of telling a little white lie or two about our age. The only trouble is, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to disguise the fact that we are no longer 18 (although we may feel it at heart) thanks to the deep wrinkles etch-a-sketching their way across our faces.
Fight back and age gracefully with the help of these useful pointers.
Avoid Sun Exposure
Did you know that exposure to sun’s UV rays accounts for 80% of wrinkles?
Sun worshippers take note… long term exposure to the sun damages skin elasticity, causes loose skin and pigmentation.
The use of sun screen will not only reduce the tell tale signs of ageing but also prevent skin cancer.
Catch some Zzzs
Research suggests that if you don’t get enough sleep your body produces a hormone called cortisol that breaks down skin cells. Skin looses its density and becomes prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles.
Make sure that you get an adequate amount of beauty sleep to help your skin retain its youthful glow.
Stamp out Cigarettes
Smoking releases an enzyme that destroys collagen and elastin making your skin look tired, wrinkly and saggy.
Kick the habit and slow down the ageing process.
Shield Your Eyes
Squinting in the suns harsh rays or because your vision isn’t quite what it used to be can enhance the appearance of crows feet around your eyes. Ensure that your glasses prescription is always up to date and that you keep a pair of sun glasses with you when you’re on the go.
Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments
At Aesthetics of Liverpool we have a number of treatments that tighten your skin and smooth out wrinkles.
Micro-needling is the process of using a titanium device containing thousands of tiny micro-needles and rolling it across the surface of your skin. This creates puncture wounds that will heal and stimulate the production of new tissue, collagen and elastin.
HIFU uses ultrasound technology to reactivate the collagen in the smas layer of your skin, rejuvenating your complexion.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating technique that encourages the production of collagen and revitalises tired looking skin.
