What's the difference? Chronological vs. Environmental aging:
We know our skin will age eventually, but here's what you may not know. How we age depends on numerous factors, including UV exposure, genetics and simply, how our facial muscles move over time. The impact of intrinsic (chronological) and extrinsic (environmental) aging comes down to one question: How much can we control?
Skin aging is a natural process that begins the day we're born. Like other genetic predispositions, our skin is pre-programmed to age a certain way. And unlike environmental aging, the intrinsic aging process can be difficult to mediate.
Approximately 80% of aging occurs due to extrinsic factors, such as UV exposure, pollution and lifestyle choices like smoking. Collagen fibers and elastin decrease, and gravity and repeated muscular contractions give way to the location--frequency--of wrinkles.
While chronological aging is mostly predetermined, healthy lifestyle choices, diligent skincare and esthetician intervention can help to improve its visible signs. We recommend a diet of professional peels and clinical skincare to address signs of aging and promote youthful-looking skin throughout the years.
