Frequently Asked Questions

Just like your body, your skin changes as you age. According to the National Institute of Health, your skin elasticity changes, it becomes thinner and loses volume (which is why it doesn’t look as plump as it did when you were in your 20s).8 If you’ve spent lots of time in the sun or have done other skin-damaging practices like smoking, drinking and consuming an unhealthy diet, your skin can start to show the effects. These effects include wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume, age spots, skin sensitivity and dryness to name a handful.

Good news: While you can’t stop the clock, you can reverse skin damage that comes with aging. Practicing a regular skin care routine and trying injectables like Botox®, Xeomin® and filler can help smooth and contour your face. Beyond injectables, there are a myriad of other solutions to treat skin pigmentation and sensitive skin. Medical-grade facials, Microneedling and chemical peels can all help. 

Common signs and problems of aging skin include: 

  • Loss of strength and elasticity  
  • Pigmentation changes (skin looks paler, thinner) 
  • Sun spots  
  • Dryness  
  • Easily bruising, bleeding  
  • Wrinkles and fine lines  

Yes. As we age, the outer part of your skin changes. Your skin is made up of pigment-containing cells, and as we age, these decrease. This can lead to common areas of concern like spotting (sun spots and age spots). Many adults, especially women, experience melasma which are dark, freckle looking patches on your face.

As you age, your skin becomes thinner, which can cause your skin to become more sensitive to elements such as heat and cold. It can also be more sensitive to the touch. You might notice your skin becomes itchy or dry more often. While it can be uncomfortable, it’s completely natural to have more sensitive skin as you age.  

Ensuring you choose products that will not irritate your skin is essential. Chapter’s experts can help you choose medical-grade skincare products that won’t bother your skin and help correct sensitivity issues.
