Main Digest

Over time, your skin begins to show the signs of both internal and external influences, with the eventual result of skin that appears damaged or aged.

Fine lines, wrinkles, creases, appear and eventually grow larger, as well as pigmentation problems such as age spots or other discolorations of the skin.

Without the benefit of corrective skin therapy, these conditions will continue to grow worse. There is still hope, though! Happily, there are professional skincare products available that can help to counteract or reverse these problems, and help to restore skin to a younger, healthier appearance. Before we get to that, we must address some of the factors affecting sun damage and aging skin, as well as taking an inventory of the most common negative results that these factors can trigger. Once we have an understanding of these factors, we can look at how modern professional skin health products can work to reverse these factors and rejuvenate the skin.

Obviously, the passage of time is one of the primary factors of deterioration of the skin's appearance, but there are many factors that can cause premature aging of the skin, giving rise to a situation where your skin appears to be much older than your actual age. Some of the causes of this premature skin aging include:

Along with these external factors, internal aging affects the growth of new skin cells; as the slowdown in the growth of new skin cells occurs, the appearance of these signs of aging is accelerated. Other factors, such as the loss of fatty tissue under the skin can leave skin lax or sagging or excessive or frequent facial expressions can lead to permanent lines or wrinkles ("laugh lines" or "frown lines") can have further negative effect on the skin.

Sun exposure is almost invariably a leading factor in damage to the skin however wind and air pollution are also risks associated with the external environment. The effects of this combination is obvious when you examine the skin of someone who spends a great deal of time working outdoors in the elements, they have dry, leathery and creased skin at a very early age.

In most cases, damaged skin is the result of a combination of several (or many) of these causes working together on the patient's skin to produce damaged skin that may suffer from a variety of common skin problems that are often lumped together under the description of age spots, aging skin and so forth.

The results of these factors are a combination of problems that are routinely lumped together due to their common causes: fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, "sun spots" or "age spots" (also known as melasma in medical terms) as well as poor skin or uneven skin tone. Additionally, other changes in skin texture can occur, including thin, dry skin with less elastic quality due to loss of the skins natural ability to hydrate itself.

Having established some of the factors that lead to premature skin aging, what can be done about it?

Obviously, limiting exposure to some of the external risk factors such as sun and element exposure is one of the key ways to minimize skin damage; however there are also ways to help reduce the skin's internal aging process as well!

Professional skincare products such as the Obagi Nu-Derm system and other similar products can actually help counteract and offset the natural aging process, leading to skin with a younger, healthier appearance, as well as a reduction in pigmentation to help get rid of age spots or brown spots on the skin. The skin layers become thicker better hydrated and more like younger skin both in appearance and in the actual physical skin structures.
