New Study: Mother’s Genes Affect the Aging Process

September 17, 2013

A recent study published in the journal Nature asserts that the aging process is partly determined by genes with mutations (abnormal DNA sequence) passed down from mother to child in mitochondrial DNA. Researchers observed that adults who inherited mitochondrial DNA with mutations aged faster and more noticeably than those who did not posses these same mutations.

“For the first time, the 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 habits and environmental factors, but also by the inherited DNA from their mothers,” the article states.

Believe you may have inherited less than the best genetics? Not to worry—we can help all of our patients age gorgeously and gracefully, despite the DNA hand they’ve been dealt.

In addition to our advanced non- and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments like BOTOX® and photo facials, we also offer cosmetic surgical procedures that offer long-lasting benefits.

• An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) removes excess tissue from drooping eyelids and reduces bags and puffiness under the eyes.
• A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can improve frown lines and crow’s feet as well as a sagging, heavy brow that can make you look tired, angry or aged.
Facial fat transfer is a safe and natural procedure that poses little downtime and can re-contour your face and improve areas that are creased and sunken, such as the under-eye area and nasolabial folds.
NoFrown, Dr. Langdon’s long-term solution for frown lines, is a minimally invasive surgery in which the frown muscles are disrupted with radiofrequency energy, giving the same effect as BOTOX® but yielding long-lasting results.

He is a very experienced doctor, I call him an artistic dr. because he’s so precise in his work. If you would like something done right, dr. Langdon is the one to see.
