Aging of the skin is caused by DNA damage and loss of collagen and fat over time. This leads to sagging, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and pigmentation.
Our bodies can repair some DNA damage using enzymes. As we age the activity and production of the repairing enzymes slows and is less effective.
Excessive sun exposure and smoking are the two common causes of premature aging and sun damage.
Anti-aging treatments try to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, reduce sagging, treat and prevent wrinkles and manage abnormal pigmentation.
Management is tailored to individual needs and often requires a combination of treatments. Dr Carew provides various Laser and IPL treatments for pigment reduction and rejuvenation. Our dermatologists are experts in choosing the best treatments to address your concerns.
