What is Ageing?

Fighting the visible signs of ageing is a lifelong pursuit for many of us. Ageing is simply a process where our cells and tissues do not regenerate as quickly or effectively as they once did when we were children. Although ageing is a fact of life and happens to all of us, we do have some control over the rate and how well we age.


What Causes Our Skin to Age?

Wrinkles, fine lines, changes in pigmentation (age spots), loss of skin and muscle tone… we all associate these changes with ageing. Age related skin changes are the result of genetic changes (intrinsic factors) and lifestyle effects on the skin (extrinsic factors).


While both influence the skin’s appearance, structure and function, genetic ageing only accounts for 10-15% of cutaneous ageing. Extrinsic factors or external influences cause more pronounced changes and 85-90% of our skin’s ageing is a direct result of these avoidable factors.


Extrinsic ageing factors include:

  1. Sun exposure is the worst cause of skin ageing. Excessive and long term exposure of UV radiation (UVA – ageing rays & UVB-burning rays) causes inflammation and cellular damage, which prevent cells from renewing and therefore cause them to die. Cellular and DNA damage can also lead to cells mutating and becoming potentially cancerous. UV rays damage our structural proteins (collagen and elastin) and adhesive proteins, which result in various degrees of visible sagging, as well as deep lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, age spots ( hyper pigmentation) , dilated & broken capillaries, degeneration of vascular supply (lack of oxygen and nutrients) and skin thickness.
  2. Poor Diet- Food is much more than fuel! Food nourishes our body; however, eating a diet rich in processed foods robs our skin of the vital nutrients it needs to produce the building blocks required to repair and regenerate. Foods that have an inflammatory response on the body cause cellular damage, which in turn makes us age faster. Foods high in sugar also lead to an ageing process known as glycation, whereby sugar attaches itself to proteins and lipids in the skin and causes a crosshatching effect. The result is sagging and wrinkling of the skin.
  3. Stress- Everyone deals with stress on a daily basis in some form or another. However excessive amounts of stress cause insulin and cortisol spikes within the body. Long-term exposure to these hormones has an inflammatory response on the cells and tissues, which prevents cells from regenerating properly.
  4. Lack of sleep has a similar effect on the body as stress. When we lose sleep our adrenaline and cortisol levels are high, a natural response to help us survive the day. However lack of sleep also prevents the production of human growth hormone, without which our cells and tissues are unable to repair and renew themselves overnight.

Venus Freeze™ combines multi-polar radio frequency (RF) with pulsed magnetic fields to remodel the skin by promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin while also facilitating the production of FGF-2 (a growth hormone).
