Everyone wants to age gracefully, but it is not as straightforward a process as we often hope. Aging looks different for everyone but the most common factors that speed up the aging process are cumulative sun damage, our genetic makeup, possible substance use and more. Although there is no way to reverse the aging process, there are ways we can prevent our bodies from succumbing to all of its negative effects.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of aging:

Hair Loss

As we age, the proteins in our hair age as well. Every time our hairs fall out, they grow back slightly thinner and more brittle than before. Hair loss can occur in both men and women, no matter what age and can be due to factors such as hereditary traits, endocrine disorders, thyroid disorders, reduced hormonal support, and nutritional deficiencies. If you are experiencing hair loss because of aging, Genetica Medical offers a solution that uses PRP and PRF injections that help stimulate new hair growth.

Skin Damage

Our skin is the first thing we notice change in as we age. Whether it is due to sun damage, poor genetics or general gravity, the most common noticeable changes are sagging skin, wrinkles, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. These symptoms are inevitable but there are ways to prevent skin damage from happening at an accelerated pace. Advancements in technology have allowed for numerous ways to treat skin damage such as Chemical Peels, Micro-Needling, and Anti-Aging Moisturizers.
