When you grow older, some men and women skin ages better than their peers. Learn about the three different types of aging and how to keep your skin looking young and healthy. The three types of aging are intrinsic, extrinsic and mechanical.

Three Types of Aging

1. Intrinsic aging comes with heredity and your DNA. It varies among different ethnic groups and nationalities. This type of aging causes sagging skin, dry skin, wrinkles, lines, age spots, and thinning hair. These are natural ways we age and what happens to our skin with time.

2. Extrinsic aging is caused by environmental factors that make your skin age. Learning ways to protect your skin from the sun, wind, air pollution, chemicals, smoking, and stress helps to keep your skin healthy.

3. Mechanical aging is the wear your skin suffers on a daily basis. A lifetime of smiling, frowning, making faces, laughing, and squinting produces lines and wrinkles around the face, eyes, skin. Taking care of your aging skin with our healthy skin products and skin treatments is important to your well being.

PRP facial treatments use a numbing cream and take a sample of your blood. The blood sample is put into a centrifuge that separates the blood from the PRP. The PRP is rubbed into your face either before or after the micro needling. After this, the doctor will apply a balm or serum to soothe your skin.
