What's AGE got to do with it? A Holistic Approach to Skincare, Injectables, and Wellness

Updated: Apr 22

As we age, our faces undergo a spectrum of changes, characterized by the 3 D’s: deflation, deterioration, and descent.

While significant skin aging typically manifests in our forties or fifties, the process begins much earlier, as early as our twenties, with a gradual loss of collagen at a rate of approximately 1% per year. These changes result in shifts in skin structure, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Check out our tips for feeling and looking your best at every age...


A fundamental step in combating aging is a robust skincare routine. Essential components include antioxidants, such as vitamin C, and SPF protection. Antioxidants tighten, brighten, and protect the skin from environmental damage, while SPF shields against harmful UV rays. Notably, not all SPF products are equal, with physical or mineral SPFs containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide providing superior protection.


Injectable treatments offer targeted solutions for combating aging signs. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox and Dysport are effective in diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in areas like the forehead and crow's feet. Dermal fillers address volume loss and static wrinkles, while biostimulators like Sculptra stimulate natural collagen production, enhancing skin tightness and radiance.


A holistic approach to aging encompasses lifestyle choices and wellness practices. Factors like smoking and sun exposure significantly impact aging, emphasizing the importance of hydration, a balanced diet, exercise, and stress management. Integrating these practices supports overall well-being and complements skincare and injectable treatments in the anti-aging journey. Implementing B12 and IV Quench infusions as well as Thorne Supplements offered at Skin CoLAB can serve as an excellent hydration + health booster.

In the pursuit of graceful aging, a comprehensive strategy that combines skincare, injectables, and wellness practices is paramount. By embracing each aspect, individuals can address various facets of the aging process, promoting healthy and vibrant skin.

At Skin CoLAB, we advocate for a holistic approach to aging, recognizing the interconnectedness of skincare, injectables, and wellness in achieving optimal results.
