What Everyone Needs to Know About the Aging Process

The idea of getting older has different connotations for everyone. While some people welcome the added wisdom and experience that comes with the years, others begin feeling less valuable, attractive, and vital as time goes by. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. Dr. Shadan Kabiri believes every patient deserves to look healthy and attractive, regardless of how many birthdays they’ve celebrated.

Non-surgical procedures like laser treatments and skin tightening in West Vancouver, BC, will help you age like a fine wine, and nobody has to know your secret.

Here’s what you need to know about skin aging and available options to turn back the clock.

Signs of Skin Aging to Look For

Everyone ages at different rates, based on factors like genetics, lifestyle choices, and nutrition. As you get older, your body will naturally produce less of two structural proteins called collagen and elastin. Once this happens, your skin will get thinner, and you’ll start seeing issues like these emerge.

  • Crow’s feet: These fine lines form at the corners of your eyes from years of repetitive expressions like smiling and squinting.
  • Nasolabial folds: Wrinkles that bracket your mouth like a set of parentheses are nasolabial folds. These tend to start small, then deepen until they stretch from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your lips.
  • Lipstick lines: You may develop vertical lines surrounding your mouth, especially if you smoke.
  • Skin laxity: Your skin will start sagging and losing its youthful elasticity with age. Once this happens, you may see the emergence of jowls, a “turkey neck,” and excess fat accumulating along and under your jawline.

Can You Reverse Skin Aging?

You can take steps to avoid, reduce, and even reverse some of the signs of aging so you can look younger for longer. Here are a few simple things anyone can do.

  • Minimize sun exposure and use SPF 30+ sunscreen daily.
  • Stop smoking and reduce alcohol consumption.
  • Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh produce and whole grains.
  • Get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise daily.
  • Practice a self-care routine that includes sufficient restful sleep and plenty of stress-reducing activities like yoga or meditation.
  • Wash and moisturize your face every morning and night.

Besides these steps, you can reach out to Dr. Kabiri about anti-aging treatments and technologies.
