Skin Rejuvenation Facts
Think About This: It takes only a tenth of a second for others to form an impression of you – including your age, health, and lifestyle – just from looking at your face!
Aging skin loses supporting tissue, so it becomes less firm. Lines, wrinkles, and folds appear.
Fortunately, skin has a remarkable ability to regenerate – provided it ‘s given the right conditions. The right conditions are what we deliver that result in healthier, more attractive skin.
The Skin’s Layers
Epidermis – the surface layer. Epidermis consists of keratin that protects the surface and melanin that is responsible for pigmentation.
Dermis – the middle layer. Dermis contains collagen that gives the skin firmness and support. The dermis also contains blood vessels that provide nutrition.
Hypodermis – the bottom layer. Hypodermis consists mainly of fat, fibrous tissue, and blood vessels.
As the outermost barrier separating oneself from the environment, skin is constantly exposed to injury from external factors like ultraviolet radiation and chemical pollutants.
Years of sun exposure damage the skin’s connective tissue as well as its surface. Collagen damage leads to loss of skin suppleness with resulting in lines, wrinkles, and lax skin. Replenishing collagen can restore skin firmness.
UV radiation also depletes the skin of antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Replenishing these antioxidant vitamins makes skin clearer and more radiant.
3 Steps to Skin Rejuvenation
Step 1: Protect against UV radiation by using high spf (at least 30) sun screen and applying it often. The best sun screens contain physical barriers (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) as well as chemical barriers (benzophenone and octinoxate).
Step 2: Replace essential antioxidant vitamins that combat free radicals as well as amino acids and peptides needed for new cell growth. Amino acid, vitamin, and peptide-based products should be applied to the skin daily.
Step 3: Take advantage of the following medical treatments that repair skin damage and promote skin renewal.
Microdermabrasion, dermaplaning and chemical peels exfoliate the epidermal layer and allow fresher skin to come to the surface. These exfoliative treatments also enable nutrient serums rich in vitamins, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to penetrate into the dermis where they have their beneficial effects.
Loss of subcutaneous fibrous tissue and fat lead to deep wrinkles and loss of volume. Volume loss leads to a hollow appearance under the eyes and flattening of the cheeks. These are corrected with collagen cosmetic dermal fillers. There are a wide variety available, including Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, and Belotero. These fillers vary in their viscosity and are selected based on the location and depth of injection needed to correct the problem areas.
Combining Skin Treatments Produces the Best Results
Think about cross-training for athletic performance. Combining different methods is more effective than a single type of exercise. The same holds true for “exercising” the skin. And if you maintain a regular skin treatment program, your skin become increasingly healthy and youthful.
