SIGNS OF AGEING SKIN AND THEIR SOLUTION
Many skin changes can be seen as one ages. They can be easily treated. Removal boosts up one confidence to face world.
- SKIN TAGS
Skin tags are tiny skin colored extensions. They arise in skin folds like neck, underarms, groins etc. Consistent friction of opposing skin is a contributory factor. Skin tags are painless and non- harming. People seek removal entirely for cosmetic reasons. A single session of Co2 ablative laser or radiofrequency is required for their removal. It’s a pain free and scar free procedure.
Person can resume work immediately post removal.
- CHERRY ANGIOMA
Tiny discrete red colored translucent elevation on skin mainly over chest and back arising with age are referred to a cherry angioma. They are otherwise harmless. People seek removal entirely for cosmetic reasons. A single session of Co2 ablative laser or radiofrequency is all that is required for their removal in a pain free and scar free- way.
- SEBBORHEIC KERATOSIS:
Sebborheic keratosis are black flat patches, slightly elevated with rough surface. They arise mainly on sun exposed parts like face and dorsum of hands. Otherwise harmless skin entity people seek it’s removal purely for cosmetic reasons. Rarely in fair skin people exposed to excessive sun sebborheic keratosis may turn cancerous but the possibility is close to nil in Indians.
Skin cells starts dyeing with age. Since the color producing cells of the skin also starts dying, tiny circular white patches appear on legs and arms due to loss of colour. Dermatologist would prescribe tacrolimus ointment which needs to be applied for six months. It can revert the changes up to certain extent. Nothing else needs to be done.
Oil produced by oil glands keeps the skin hydrated. Slow death of oil glands with age leaves skin dry. Replenish the skin moisture from outside by applying a good moisturizer twice a day.
- APPEARANCE OF MUSTACHE AND HAIR OVER CHIN AREA.
Male hormone- testosterone is also present in females but it effect is subdued under the effect of female hormone -estrogen. With ageing as the estrogen production declines, testosterone effect is unmasked. This leads to appearance of facial hair especially at sides of upper lips and at chin. One can opt for few sessions of laser hair reduction to get rid of same.
- BLACK SPOTS:
DPN are tiny discreet black raised skin spots, usually seen on face. Single session of either co2 ablative laser or radiofrequency would help clear them off without pain and scar. Few days downtime post procedure might be there after laser.
- FAT REDISTRIBUTION:
Fat present below the skin undergoes a massive redistribution as one age. Skin loses fat over face but accumulates more over abdomen and thighs. Loss of fat over face leaves one with gaunt looks with wrinkles.
- SKIN THINNING:
Elastic and collagen fibers are lost as skin ages. These are the main building block of skin. Once skin looses them it becomes, thin and friable. Finelines and wrinkles. Skin tightening treatment like few sessions of fractional radiofrequency by a dermatologist would help restore skin thickness in safe and effective way. Microneedling is a technology which boosts repair mechanism of skin thus helping skin form new collagen and elastin.
- INCREASED CHANCES OF BRUISES: Blood vessels weaken with age. Thus, they have increased propensity to break with pressure. As blood vessels rupture, blood extravagates in skin giving rise to bruise. Arnica cream and tablets available at homeopathic shops would help heal them faster. Else they resolve own it’s own within 7 to 10 days.
Right knowledge of things allays unnecessary tension.
