What Causes Aging of the Skin?
As people age, their bodies change. One of the first changes you may notice involves your skin. Changes to the skin occur because of ongoing exposure to sunlight, as well as a reduction in the production of collagen and elastin. Certain behaviors, such as using a tanning bed or smoking, may speed up aging of the skin, too.
What are the Visible Signs of Aging?
As you age, your skin may lose some of its natural colors, causing it to appear dull and gray. You may also notice a loss of moisture, reduced elasticity, and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Also, as skin begins to lose its tightness, you may see a change in the overall shape of your face.
Can the Signs of Aging be Prevented or Reversed?
It may be possible to prevent or delay the signs of aging by avoiding habits known to contribute to these problems, such as spending time in the sun unprotected, using tanning beds, or smoking. You can also prevent or reverse the signs of aging by using specialized products designed for this purpose and with the assistance of gentle cosmetic dermatology procedures.

Why EltaMD® and SkinMedica®?

Elta MD broad-spectrum sunscreens help to prevent sunburn, reduce your risk of skin cancer, and prevent early skin aging caused by sun exposure. When your skin is exposed to the sun without protection, harmful UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin and cause damage that may lead to premature signs of aging. UVB rays burn the outer layer of the skin, which increases the risk of skin cancer. Elta MD sunscreens reflect both types of harmful rays, which reduces the risk of all related problems.
SkinMedica® is the product of the Science of Skin Rejuvenation where years of research have been dedicated to formulate advanced skin care products to deliver optimal results for our patients. Experience The SkinMedica® Difference and see how we leverage your skin’s natural healing properties to enhance the look and feel of your skin.
