The Real Reason Why Some People Never Seem to Age

by Andy Cheng Director

“Aging is not an option, not for anyone. It is how gracefully we handle the process and how lucky we are, as the process handles us,” said Cindy Mcdonald. There are some people who seem to age much slower than the rest of us. The ravages of time definitely did not do any damage to many superstars. 

Although it is true that to some extent, life can be a little unfair by making some age slower or age more graciously than others. However, most people who don’t look their age have gone the extra mile to delay signs of aging. And it’s not just plastic surgery we are talking about. Medical researchers have found ways to reverse the aging process non-surgically with outstanding results.

The Natural Process of Aging

There are several factors that affect the physiology of aging. Environmental factors, nutrition, genetic makeup are among some of the factors that directly contribute to your outward appearance, including the natural process of aging. 

Aging is a complex process. Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging. With aging, the outer skin layer becomes thin. The number of pigment-containing cells called melanocytes decreases and become unevenly distributed, leading to the skin looking paler, and more translucent. Large pigmented spots such as age spots or lentigos may appear in areas that are regularly exposed to the sun such as face, neck, arms, and hands.

The skin’s strength and elasticity also reduces. The elastin fibers and other connective tissue become weaker over time. This is more evident in people who suffer from sun damage in their younger days.

Oil glands become less active as we grow older. Women generally see a dip in the sebum production after menopause. That is why older people generally have dry, wrinkled skin because it is harder to keep the skin moist.

Unlocking Anti-Aging Secrets You Never Knew

SKIN LIFTING In recent years, medical doctors have found a perfect way to lift the skin visibly without undergoing surgery. Non-surgical facelift has seen a surge in popularity the last couple of years.  Using dissolvable sutures lined with barbs or cones, the doctor inserts a needle under the skin. The threads are pushed upwards until they firmly reposition the sagging skin, lifting it to where it was before the sagging happened. Also known as non-surgical thread lift, it is wildly popular among women in their 40s because of its immediate lifting effect and its ability to regenerate collagen production for a longer lasting lift.

For people suffering from trypanophobia, there is also an alternative option which does not involve the use of needles. Ultherapy skin lifting is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. It uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to lift and tone the skin. Ultherapy skin lifting (or the generic HIFU treatment) does not break the skin and no foreign object is introduced into the body. It essentially stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. Results from Ultherapy may not be seen immediately after the treatment. Gradual tightening occurs over the next few months, resulting in a natural lift of the skin.

TREATMENT FOR SMOOTHER SKIN Getting smoother skin can seem overwhelmingly difficult to achieve. Smooth facial skin can be easily achieved with dermal filler treatment. Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid are perfect for people who want to add smoothness to the skin and improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles. 

SKIN BRIGHTENING Aging causes our skin to lose our radiance. Our skin becomes dull, dry, and unattractive. Many people opt for Restylane SkinBoosters treatment by delivering stabilized hyaluronic acid under the skin using a series of micro-injections. The skin immediately becomes plump and smooth because the hyaluronic acid absorbs water and bring deep hydration to the skin. At the same time, the skin will also appear more luminous by improving its overall texture, firmness, and elasticity.

Laser treatments are also very popular for improving skin tone and texture almost immediately. Dual Yellow Laser treatment is one of the latest laser treatment in Singapore for a wide range of skin abnormalities such as rosacea, melasma, acne, and skin pigmentation. Unlike traditional resurfacing lasers, Dual Yellow Laser does not break the skin surface and dos not cause any bleeding or damage to the surrounding skin.

It is best to start anti-aging treatments early so that it takes less effort to maintain youthfulness and erase early signs of aging. Non-surgical aesthetic treatments will be more difficult to administer as the sagging problems get more serious.
