I would like to personally thank Dr Farmah for arranging a call to go through my original appointment mishap. He called me up and explained the process and we were able to resolve the booking over the phone. I would like to thank the clinic and Dr Farmah for their professionalism.

Dr. Farmah was so thorough, informative, and reassuring. This was my first Botox treatment ever performed on myself, and I used it as more of a preventative method. I started developing a horizontal line across my forehead and worried that it would become more permanent if not targeted right away by a professional. He makes it sound and look so easy. Very professional atmosphere and exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him!

I had few sessions of Micro-needling with Dr. Farmah there. Very happy with my results! The aestheticians are super professionals and kind, the treatment is relaxing and I love to go to this clinic as my break time from work and stress. A little me time once a month for relaxation and beauty. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend! I'm from Bromsgrove, and it is worth the drive! Dr. Farmah truly knows what he is doing. I was nervous because any alteration to the face is scary. I am young and have always had dark circles. No creams, diet, or products helped. I was impressed by how natural his patients looked. I am young, so I did not want the “filler” look. Dr. Farmah did a great evaluation, and did not push me to get the treatment. I truly think he did everything right: deep fillers, microcannula, Restylane. I had very little bruising and swelling, and I went out to dinner right after treatment. Overall, I would absolutely do this treatment with Dr. Farmah again. I look rested and refreshed, and it looks natural! Thank you, Dr. Farmah!

What is premature ageing?

The only difference between normal ageing and premature ageing is the timeline. This is because ageing— though a natural process—can be sped up by a range of factors. Premature ageing refers to a condition where the signs of ageing occur earlier than is standard. This could be linked to many factors around us, such as unprotected exposure to sunlight, harsh cold weather, lack of adequate sleep and lifestyle habits. For example, we effortlessly speed up the ageing process just by getting a tan or going out in the cold.

Smoking and drinking alcohol also play huge roles in speeding up the ageing process, such as the smoker’s lines developing around the mouth or lines on the forehead due to the skin being deprived of nutrients and oxygen. Studies show that smoking can activate enzymes that break down the elasticity of your skin.

Genetics also plays a role in how quickly we age.

What happens to the skin when we age?

Although fine lines, wrinkles, and grey hair are generally the first things that come to mind when we talk about ageing, other signs include the formation of sunspots (also called age spots), dry or itchy skin, sagging skin and sunken cheeks or temples.

This is because ageing affects our skin in a variety of ways. Examples include:

Sebaceous glands produce less oil and the skin produces less hyaluronic acid as you age, making it harder to keep the skin moist and resulting in dryness and itchiness.

The breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres causes the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching.

Loss of fat below the skin in the cheeks, temples, chin, nose and eye area may result in loosening skin, sunken eyes and a “skeletal” appearance.

What can I do to slow down the ageing process?

The good news is that taking preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk of premature ageing.

While ageing is inevitable, there are several steps you can take to slow down the process. These include staying out of strong sunlight, applying a quality sunscreen or even taking a holistic approach by eliminating other factors that could be causing you to speed up the ageing process, such as alcohol, smoking, etc.

Also, make sure to use the right products for your skin and take into account that whatever goes into your body takes effect on your skin.

But if you need – or want – extra help to keep your skin in shape, we offer a wide variety of safe treatments such as injectables, microneedling and skin peels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you first notice the signs of ageing?

The first signs of ageing often show up as fine lines around the eyes, also known as Crow’s Feet. Soon after, fine lines start developing in the upper lip and nose areas.

As our skin matures, the 7 signs of ageing start showing on it:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dark circles and puffy eyes

Sagging skin

Visible pores

Dullness and Pigmentation

Dry Skin

Age Spots

Why do lines and wrinkles form on my face?

Once you hit your 20s, your skin produces 1% less collagen every year. Elastin production also decreases as you get older. Collagen helps keep our skin firm and supple, whereas elastin is the stretchy, fibrous element that helps our skin to ‘snap back’ after movement.

Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. And as skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. So, constant repetitive movements such as squinting and smiling can lead to lines and wrinkles.

Does stress have an impact on ageing?

Yes. Stress doesn’t just make a person feel older. In a very real sense, it can speed up ageing. Stress ages you faster as it shortens the DNA telomeres, and as the structure weakens, the cells age faster and die. High amounts of cortisol — the stress hormone — can break down the skin’s collagen and elastin and form wrinkles.

What do you recommend I do for ageing skin?

There are many different ways to alleviate the signs of premature ageing though it helps determine the cause first.

You can use these basic steps to help:

Exfoliate to increase skin cell turnover,

Strengthen the dermal matrix of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid,

Reduce Hyperpigmentation and discolouration,

Optimise hydration levels within the skin,

Protect with Antioxidants,

Protect against UV rays.
