Reverse aging skin today.

Wrinkles, folds, fine lines, age spots and dryness can appear gradually or over time. Thankfully, there are several different ways to firm, brighten, smooth and restore your skin so you can feel confident and beautiful every day.

Aging skin is a common problem, but we've come a long way

As we age -- our skin ages, too. It's thinner, loses moisture and plumpness, and no longer looks as firm and smooth as it once did. Veins and spots can be seen more easily. Years of sun damage add up, and so do years of worrying and smiling.

What's happening? As we age, the outer layer of the skin becomes thinner. Meanwhile, the number of melanocytes, or cells that carry pigment, decreases and those which remain increase in size (age spots, for example). Aging skin looks more fragile and paler. Skin also loses strength and elasticity over time, and that effect is much more pronounced if you spend your time in the sun.

Anti-aging skincare is more than how you look. Scientists are finding that people who feel younger than their chronological age are typically healthier and more psychologically resilient than those who feel older. Advances in cosmetic procedures have also made it possible for more individuals to access these benefits without long recovery periods. For example, a subtle mini-lift or nonsurgical injection can dramatically improve your quality of life and raise your self-esteem.

Solutions for preventing or treating aging skin.

The American Academy of Dermatology says it is never too late to make environmental and lifestyle changes that improve the health and appearance of your skin. Protecting your skin from the sun and thoughtfully moisturizing can both prevent and repair damange. New treatments are less-invasive and range from topical creams and gels to surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Your Quintessa care team can help you find a regimen for firming your skin, smoothing your wrinkles, and brightening your complexion.

How can you reduce and prevent aging skin?

  1. Protect yourself from the sun. Apply broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher) every day and reapply according to the manurfacturer's instructions.
  2. Skip the tanning salon. UV rays are harmful, it doesn't matter if those rays are from a tanning bed or the actual sun.
  3. Stop smoking. It's bad for your health and is known to cause wrinkles.
  4. Eat healthy. Avoid high glycemic food, sugars, and refined carbohydrates because they can cause both acne and wrinkles. Go for nutrient-dense foods, complex carbohydrates, vitamin C and collagen.
  5. Sleep is important. There is a reason why sleep deprivation appears on the face before anywhere else. Your body needs time to create anti-inflammatory cytokines to recover from the day.
