If you’ve been on TikTok you’ll know that Gen Z considers anyone from their mid 20s… Old. We’re only as old as we feel but when should we start using antiaging products and treatments?
What is aging?
As we get older, the collagen and elastin in our skin starts to break down. This results in weaker and looser skin that shows wrinkling from all the expressions you’ve shown over the years.
Certain lifestyle habits like sun exposure, smoking, drinking and poor skincare can accelerate this decrease in superficial volume making you lose that plump youthful bounce in your face.
Ok, you’re scaring me but when does this happen?
You’re not going to like this but, generally the first signs of aging start to become visible amongst 25 year olds. This is when the first signs of aging start to become apparent as our natural collagen production starts to slow down. Fine lines appear first then wrinkles, a loss of volume, and a loss of elasticity become noticeable over time.
When do I start?
Some experts recommend that people start using anti-aging products as early as their 20s to get ahead.
Skincare with active ingredients, such as retinol and hyaluronic acid may slow down the signs of aging and improve the skin’s appearance.
Here are some other active ingredients for you to consider introducing into your routine:
- Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid): Brightens tired and dull skin while protecting it from environmental damage, such as pollution, free radicals, and UV rays.
- Hyaluronic acid: Acts as a humectant, binding moisture to the skin to plump up the skin’s appearance.
- Retinoids (retinol): Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs): Brightens the skin and boosts the renewal of skin cells. AHA peels, also known as glycolic peels, can help address sun damage and hyperpigmentation, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
What else can I do?
Depending on your current skin condition and concerns, you could benefit from antiaging treatments. Antiaging-focused treatments can significantly help reduce and slow down visible signs of aging when performed by a professional.
Our favourite antiaging treatment is HIFU for the face and neck.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, better known as HIFU is a non-invasive treatment that tightens the skin, irons out wrinkles, shrinks pores, and lifts saggy jowls.
HIFU works by targeting the deep layers in the skin to boost new collagen production and collagen regeneration directly. The ultimate non-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift.
Most clients can see immediate results. HIFU results continue to develop over 2-8 weeks post-treatment and the final results can be seen in 12 weeks.
