What Is Cellular Ageing & Why Should I Care?

What is Cellular Ageing and Why You Should Care About It

Cells are the smallest unit of life. If you think about it, every single thing you can see and touch is made up of a bunch of cells. Your body is made up of trillions and trillions of cells, each with its job to do to keep you alive. Together all these tiny pieces make up your body.

Cellular ageing is when the DNA inside a cell gets messed up because it’s being used too much or has been damaged by free radicals (nasty little things around us all the time).

This means that your cells start to age faster than they should, which makes them less efficient at doing their jobs. The result is that we look older than we are!

What Makes A Skin Cell Act Old?

You might be wondering what makes a skin cell act old. How can you tell if your cells are ageing? In short, it’s all about damage. The first sign of cellular ageing is DNA damage.

Your genes contain the instructions for how your cells should function and grow, but as you go through life, these instructions get damaged by things like UV rays from the sun or other environmental factors such as pollution and cigarette smoke. This can cause problems with cell growth and repair processes that lead to wrinkles or even cancer.

The second way our cells age is oxidative stress: when there are too many free radicals in the body for normal function. The excess free radicals damage the mitochondria (the powerhouses) inside each cell, leading to reduced energy levels within that cell—which means we don’t look as vibrant!

Are There Signs We Can Spot to Indicate Cellular Ageing?

Here are some signs that you may be experiencing cellular ageing:

  •  Skin wrinkles include crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead lines.
  • Skin sagging, which can lead to puffy cheeks or jowls.
  • Skin dullness and lack of radiance.

You may have noticed this in your face by seeing fewer pimples than when you were younger, but your skin looks duller or more parched overall compared to when it was younger. This is often a result of a combination of dryness, loss of elasticity (another sign of ageing), and inadequate hydration levels in the skin.

I’ve Had Filler, Botox & Other Aesthetics Treatments, Why Should I Care About Cellular Ageing?

I’m glad you asked! You see, the problem with these treatments is that they’re all very surface-level. They address your skin’s appearance while ignoring what’s going on beneath the surface.

When you get a facial peel or laser treatment, for example, it may make your skin look smoother and more even, but it won’t do anything to address the underlying issues that cause your skin to age in the first place; that’s where cellular ageing comes in. Cellular ageing is a process that occurs over time as your body produces new cells that are less effective than older ones at repairing themselves. As we get older, our bodies have less collagen and elastin—proteins that help keep our skin looking firm and youthful—leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. But don’t worry! There are ways to combat cellular ageing–and House of Evexia offers a wide range of remarkable biohacking and health optimisation treatments and machines to help you address the root cause of your ageing skin at its source!

Why Don’t Fillers & Botox Work When My Skin Is Already Old?

As you can see, fillers and botox don’t work because they do not address your wrinkles’ root cause. They are only trying to address the surface-level effects of cellular ageing. The real problem is more profound than the surface and systemic, meaning it involves all parts of your face together rather than just one part alone (such as your forehead). The actual cause is another underlying issue causing all parts of your face to age prematurely at an accelerated rate.

Do I Have to Worry About Telomere Shortening?

Telomeres are the DNA at the end of chromosomes, which shorten with every cell division. This means they eventually become too short, and cells can’t copy themselves anymore. This is why our body goes through cellular ageing – when it starts to lose its ability to regenerate itself in a controlled manner.

The reasons for this are many, including things like diet and lifestyle choices (excessive smoking or drinking alcohol), lack of exercise and poor diets high in sugar or processed foods can all contribute to this “natural” ageing process, but what if we could protect our telomeres from shortening?

Protecting your telomeres is essential because when they get too short, it could lead to various diseases such as heart disease or cancer (and even Alzheimer’s). We’re happy to inform you that Helen’s interstellar Hyperbaric Oxygen machine has been scientifically proven to increase telomere length by more than 20% in ageing cells. Just imagine the effects that can have on your body and skin!

You should be worried about your cells’ health because they make up your skin! The skin is the largest organ in our body, covering an area of around 2 square metres. It is made up of many layers, each one with a different function. The epidermis is the outermost layer, which protects against harmful UV rays and other environmental damage.

The dermis lies beneath this and contains:

  • Hair follicles protect us from cold weather.
  • Sweat glands to cool down when we’re hot.
  • Sebaceous glands produce oil for moisturising the skin.
  • Nerve endings for sensing touch.
  • Blood vessels provide oxygen and nutrients for all these cells.

The outermost layer (the epidermis) contains melanocytes which produce melanin – this protects our bodies from damage by reflecting UV light away from them, so they don’t get sunburnt too quickly if left unprotected by clothing.
