Aging is a natural process. Over time, the appearance and properties of our skin change. The formation of wrinkles and the change of facial contours is influenced by many factors: hormonal changes, biological age, exposure to the sun, smoking. The skin loses its elasticity and firmness, becomes less moisturized and more sensitive. There are two types of skin aging: physiological aging, related to our genes, and environmental aging - conditioned by external factors.
With age, atrophic processes within its layers begin to dominate the skin. The skin becomes sagging and dry. The production of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and lipids, the basic substances responsible for proper hydration, elasticity and firmness of the skin, decreases.
In addition, excessive skin laxity may occur after intensive weight loss and after pregnancy (mainly in the abdominal area).
Comprehensive therapy is most often used, combining various treatments for the best effect. Some of them can be used together during one visit, there are also some that should be kept at an appropriate time interval.
