There are several reasons for an uneven skin texture, including the amount of collagen and elastin present in the skin. Collagen and elastin are the proteins responsible for skin elasticity, tone, and texture, and are affected by diet, age, hormones, skin products, cosmetic treatments, and overall health.
The aging process dramatically affects the texture of the skin as well as causing wrinkles, age spots and blotchiness. Wrinkles, fine lines, and an uneven skin complexion all develop as a part of the natural aging process.
Over time, skin accumulates damage from many sources – such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, trauma, pollution and more. The functions of young, healthy skin start to break down.
On the surface, aging skin becomes discoloured, lax, wrinkled, dry and rough. Cell regeneration slows, reducing the availability of essential nutrients. Moreover, instead of producing healthy new cells, skin functions now produce cells that are abnormal.
Below the surface, collagen and elastin production slows. Collagen becomes less dense and coarser and loses its uniform construction. This, combined with degeneration of elastin in the dermis, causes skin to wrinkle and sag. Less blood flow and moisture result in the dull, lifeless skin patients complain about. Fortunately, transforming aging skin function is possible with Med Spa Services Providers.
