Here at Eden, while we believe in ageing gracefully, fine lines and wrinkles along with other signs of ageing skin can be frustrating. Slower production of collagen in your skin and decreased cell-turnover time means that wrinkles appear faster and more often as we age.
Skin ageing is caused by multiple factors. The most obvious factor is the effect of time upon our skin and ‘wrinkling’ is a result of your genes and biological age. . However, more often than not, a large majority of wrinkles can be caused, or intensified, by UV sun exposure. Harmful UV rays can break down collagen fibres leading to wrinkling of skin. Other skin ageing causes are significantly influenced by lifestyle, using an inappropriate mix of skin care products, diet and cigarette smoke. The parts of our body which are more exposed to the external environment, such as our face, neck and hands, tend to be more prone to ageing and wrinkling compared to other parts of our body.
Our experienced registered nurse and skin therapist are trained in many non-surgical fine line treatments and wrinkle treatments, at medical grade, so that we can best apply our expertise to helping you with your concerns.
