Treatment options for early ageing

When it comes to ageing, this natural process can affect all areas of the body, including the facial skin. In fact, it’s here that premature ageing is often most notable. But what are the early signs of ageing, what causes this, and what are the effective treatment options for early ageing?

What are the early signs of ageing?

There are a number of different early signs of ageing that can make a notable difference to the way that your face looks. These include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles- One of the most common signs of early ageing are fine lines and wrinkles. These often appear in areas where the skin is thinner, or where the muscles move to create expressions. As such, lines around the eyes, known as crows feet, are often one of the first signs to appear.
  • Loss of skin elasticity- As a natural part of the ageing process, the skin loses its elasticity and this can lead to sagging skin, particularly under the eyes and on the cheeks, as well as the jawline.
  • Loss of skin volume- As we age, we lose fat and collagen from the face which can result in a hollowed appearance. This usually begins around the cheeks and temples as an early sign of ageing.
  • Uneven skin tone and texture- Other early signs of ageing that shouldn’t be overlooked are age spots, hyperpigmentation, and rough texture, which can all develop over time due to environmental or genetic factors.

What are the causes of early ageing?

There are a number of different factors that can contribute to early ageing, and these include:

  • Genetics- One of the biggest factors related to early ageing is your genetics. Genetic predispositions play a significant role in how quickly and noticeably we age.
  • Sun exposure- Continued over exposure to the sun is known to significantly contribute to early ageing, causing wrinkles, sun spots, and a loss of skin elasticity.
  • Smoking- Smoking is also known to accelerate the ageing process by causing oxidative stress and collagen breakdown in the skin, as well as causing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
  • Hormonal changes- Hormonal fluctuations can lead to changes in skin texture and elasticity, contributing to the development of fine lines and wrinkles earlier.

What are the effective treatment options for early ageing?

There are a wide range of effective treatment options that can tackle the early signs of ageing effectively, and leave your skin looking healthy and more youthful. These treatment options include:

  • PhilArt Injectable Polynucleotides
  • Mesotherapy
  • Microneedling
  • PhilArt Injectable Polynucleotides

This highly effective treatment option involves injecting a solution containing polynucleotides. These are molecules that stimulate the production of collagen, while also promoting cell regeneration. This can help to reverse collagen loss, and promote collagen production in the long term, while also improving skin texture, hydration, and elasticity. As a result, PhilArt Injectable Polynucleotides can notably reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is minimally invasive and typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results.


Mesotherapy is a treatment that involves injecting a customised combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid into the skin to rejuvenate and hydrate. This combination can help to improve the skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also promoting collagen production. As a result, mesotherapy is a highly effective opinion for treating the early signs of ageing for healthy and more youthful skin. This can also be used effectively with other aesthetic procedures for enhanced results.


Microneedling  is also known as collagen induction therapy, as this can be highly effective for stimulating the production of collagen for longer term results. The process for microneedling involves using a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. Microneedling can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin tone and elasticity, which makes it the perfect option for treating the early signs of ageing.
