Skin Ageing

As we age, our skin loses its radiance and youthful appearance, gradually becoming thinner, dehydrated and less firm. This is partly because the production of the molecule that provides hydration and structure to our skin, hyaluronic acid or HA, slows down with time2.

At the same time, the natural ageing process drives changes to the underlying bone structure of the face, which can lead to a lack of definition in facial contours, such as our cheeks3.

But the visible changes to our skin are not caused by time alone – lifestyle factors can often worsen our skin’s condition and even accelerate the ageing process.

Lifestyle Factors*

Select from the lifestyle factors to see the effects they may have on your skin:

Sun Exposure
 
 

Although getting some sun is important for sufficient vitamin D, years of sun exposure or tanning can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your skin1,12.

Dehydration
 
 

Drinks containing caffeine or alcohol can have a dehydrating effect, so consume these in moderation. Sip water throughout the day to stay hydrated13

Smoking
 
 

Over time, frequently drawing on a cigarette can deepen lines around the mouth and lips. Smoking also starves the skin cells of oxygen1.

Diet
 
 

Your skin is renewed constantly. A balanced diet supports the revival of your skin cells, by providing the vitamins and minerals the body needs to help keep it looking youthful and healthy1,14.

Treatment Options

The visible changes caused by skin ageing, such as lines, wrinkles and volume loss, can be treated in different ways. Dermal fillers and gels that use naturally occurring HA are one popular option2.

These treatments work by injecting naturally occurring HA into the skin to replace levels lost to the natural ageing process. The Restylane portfolio includes products that restore a youthful appearance by replacing volume loss and improving definition and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as products that improve the skin’s condition by providing hydration.
