The aging process varies among individuals, but the signs of two kinds of aging are to be expected in most people.
Chronological aging is dictated mostly by heredity, and it inevitably occurs over time. It includes the natural collagen and fat loss that contribute to expression lines and lax skin. With time, hormonal changes can cause moisture loss and thinning skin. While chronological aging cannot be prevented, its progress can be slowed with injectables, collagen stimulation and surgical lifts.
Because it’s predominantly due to lifestyle, environmental aging is preventable, controllable and correctable. Contributing factors include sun exposure, smoking, alcohol and poor nutrition.
Environmental aging can actually contribute to chronological aging, but with habit changes, proper skincare, and resurfacing treatments-to name just a few solutions-its signs can be diminished or reversed.
