Aging Skin

You have to get older, but in no way do you have to look your age. One of the reasons people look older than they feel is aging skin, which ramps up considerably once you hit 30. This is because collagen production, which is vital to keeping skin elastic, plump, and youthful-looking, starts to decline noticeably at this time, even if you take good care of yourself with healthy eating and exercise. At Cohen Medical Practice, we have treatments that can supplement good self-care to help your skin look and feel more rejuvenated and youthful.

What Causes Aging Skin?

Collagen and elastin are substances under your skin that create a framework that allows your skin to “snap” back into place whenever you distort it by using your muscles, for example, smiling, frowning or squinting. As you age, your body produces less of these substances on a regular basis, making your skin less resilient, and making you appear older. Sun damage can also accelerate this process.

What Are the Signs?

The most obvious and unwanted signs of aging skin are fine lines and wrinkles. These usually start in areas such as around the eyes (“Crow’s feet”) and on the forehead. Other signs of aging skin include age spots, little brown patches of discoloration that look like large freckles, and a “crepey” skin texture. All these signs tend to be most noticeable on the face and the hands, the areas of your skin that are most often exposed to the outside world.

How Do We Treat Aging Skin?

While we can’t make the signs of aging completely disappear, we do have effective anti-aging skin care treatments for reducing them. The key to treating your aging skin is encouraging your body to produce more collagen. At Cohen Medical Practice, we are proud to offer TempSure® Skin Tightening, a mild, non-invasive procedure that rejuvenates and tightens skin through the application of concentrated radiofrequency heat in order to stimulate the skin and signal the body to ramp up collagen production.
