 Skin Conditions:


Aging

   Skin aging is a degenerative process caused by intrinsic, chronological aging and extrinsic, environmental aging. Both intrinsic and extrinsic aging contribute to problems in the dermis and epidermis leading to slower cell turnover and damage to collagen and elastin fibers. Visible signs of aging include a loss of the skins radiance and firmness, as well as wrinkles, laxity and pigmentation.
