More than 60 years old
At this age you observe wrinkles around the eye, laxity in the cheeks and neck.
Do you imagine having 60 and looking 48? Or having 45 and looking 35?
The ageing process is well known: more wrinkles, laxity, sunken eyes, atrophy in the muscles and accumulation of fat in some areas of our body.
Understanding ageing is very important to treat problems correctly. Our skin has a thickness of 2 cm when we are 20 years old. The most superficial 2 mm are the epidermis and the dermis, which is immediately underneath is formed basically by collagen, which is a very elastic molecule. Underneath we have the fat tissue that works as a thermal insulator.
At the age of 90 we have los 90% of our collagen and 90% of the thickness of the skin, that is why it wrinkles.
STOP AGEING means STOP ATROPHY and we have special programs for each age at the Dermatology clinic in Barcelona.
