A new study published in the journal Nature suggests that how well someone ages is largely determined by genes passed down from mother to child, casting new light on the nature vs. nurture debate.
Researchers observed that children who inherited mitochondrial DNA with mutations from their mothers experienced “accelerated aging” – in other words, aging faster and more noticeably.
“For the first time, researchers have shown that the aging process is influenced not only by the accumulation of mitochondrial DNA damage during a person’s lifetime (i.e. lifestyle), but also by the inherited DNA from their mothers,” explained ScienceDaily.com. Scientists are currently investigating whether reducing this number of mutations at the cell level can slow the aging process.
Luckily for our patients, you don’t have to been born with perfect genetics to age gracefully. Our advanced array of non-and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation services can eliminate many common signs of aging and all with little to no downtime!
For instance, did you know that just one photofacial can reduce over 80% of sunspots and age spots? After a recommended series of 3-5 photofacials, you can slow down the clock and keep yourself “forever young.” A Stanford University study proved that photofacial technology can restore aged skin to resemble younger skin, as well as prevent future aging.
Bio-identical hormone replacement, also available at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Atagi Skin Aesthetics in Denver, can also slow the aging process from the inside out by delaying age-related illnesses and discomfort such as menopause, depression, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, stroke and high cholesterol.
