Tips for Aging Gracefully
Baby boomers are redefining the art of aging gracefully.
By 2017 in North America, Baby Boomers will make up half of the population. These people, born between 1946 and 1964, are living longer and expect to look and feel healthy and vibrant.
Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our experienced physician, believes that it is important to take good care of the body and mind to achieve graceful aging. She encourages baby boomers to take an active and preventive approach to aging. The first step is to fight back against the two most visible signs of aging, noticeable on the skin and the hair.
When it comes to skin issues, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation top the list of concerns. As skin ages, less natural oil is produced, along with less collagen and elastin–the elements that help to make your skin look smooth and youthful. Other evidence of increasing age includes sagging skin, dryness and thinning of skin, itching, sensitivities, and allergies.

Thinning hair is another common aging concern. Hormone depletion and slowed hair-growth cycle lead to thinning hair and hair loss. As we age, stress, surgeries, and medical conditions can further contribute to hair loss. Also, nutritional deficiencies due to weakening digestion and poorer absorption of nutrients can play a significant role in thinning hair. Dr. Ebrahim has many different treatments and products to assist you with combating thinning hair.
