Aging of your skin depends on a variety of factors including lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits. For instance, smoking results in premature aging and wrinkles produce free radicals, once-healthy oxygen molecules that are now overactive and unstable. Free radicals damage cells, leading to, among other things, premature wrinkles. Smoking hinders the blood supply that keeps skin tissue looking supple and healthy. Stay away from smoking and maintain a stress-free routine for healthy skin.

Thermage is a one-time non-surgical method that utilizes radiofrequency waves to stimulate collagen generation to plump up the skin and decrease wrinkles. It addresses the visible signs of aging, toning those trouble areas without the need for surgery. Thermage repairs the collagen in the skin to reveal a youthful texture. Since this is a one-time process no off-time is required.
Exposure to sunlight is the single biggest culprit in aging skin.
3 of 5
The harmful ultraviolet (UV) ray emitted by the sun damages some fibers in the skin called elastin. The breakdown of elastin fibers may cause the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily and takes longer to heal. So while sun damage may not show when you're young, it will later in life. You can delay these signs of aging by staying out of the sun, covering up, wearing a hat, and making a habit of using sunscreen.
Which of these following are common signs of aging?
4 of 5
Dark spots, sagging skin, dry skin, itching, etc. are common in the later stage of life. About 85% of older people develop "winter itch," due to overheated indoor air which is dry. The skin also gets dry and worse due to the loss of oil glands as we age. Lack of fat below the skin in the cheeks, chin, nose, and eye area may result in sagging skin, sunken eyes, and a "skeletal" appearance. As soon as these signs are detected, treatment should be started for better efficiency.

5 of 5
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure where ultrasound technology is used to tone and tighten the facial skin. The ultrasound energy used in this procedure stimulates the body’s natural regenerative responses to build new collagen, gently and gradually lifting and smoothing the skin. The method is effective not only on the face, but also the décolletage – one of the first areas of the body to show signs of age, and one of the hardest to treat. Consult with your dermatologist to check if you are the right candidate for the procedure.
