Normal Aging and Progeria Linked

A huge chunk of patients that come into our Louisiana plastic surgery practice are mainly seeking a way to combat the signs of aging, such as wrinkles springing up on their faces. Like many people all over the world, they’d at least like to keep their appearance youthful and beautiful, even if their cells on the insides are beginning to wear out.

But did you know that recent studies suggest that aging is not just a slow wearing out of cells?

New studies have actually found that as we get older our bodies actually begin to produce a toxic protein known as progerin. This same toxic protein is found in very large quantities in children with Progeria, which causes them to age at seven times the normal rate. Though healthy human beings have much lower quantities, this suggests that the toxic protein could actually be the real reason why human beings age. Therefore, aging is not simply a passive wearing out of cells as previously thought, but an active biological mechanism that is programmed into our cells.

Perhaps there is no real way of combatting aging. It is, in fact, a completely natural occurrence. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to feel beautiful as you get older. Anything from Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, or even a face lift can help you turn back the clock physically. Every single person deserves to feel beautiful no matter what their age.

To your health and beauty,

The Drs. Wall
