Anti-Aging

Have you ever noticed someone with great skin and wondered what their secret is?

Two basic therapies cell renewal and collagen stimulation are the basis for most anti-aging treatments. With consistent attention they will tighten drooping skin, reduce wrinkles, and reveal a fresher, cleared appearance.

Cell Renewal is the process by which skin produces new cells. These cells then travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shed off the skin. Renewal or turnover keeps dead cells from building up an gives you that healthy, well rested, glow. One of the reasons why dry skin tends to look dull is that the cell renewal process slows with age an dead skin sticks to the surface. There are many techniques to improve cell renewal. Simply using a good cleanser with a sonic brush can make a dramatic difference.  Some other home therapies can be effective but it is also good to invest in a series of med spa treatment s to improve the texture of the skin surface. Microdermabrasion, Intense Pulse Light (IPL), peels and masks stimulate cell renewal. They also build on skin’s collagen, increase firmness, and improve hydration of the largest body organ, skin.

As you age, collagen production declines weakening skin. Wrinkles appear, skin sags, and lines form around the eyes and mouth. Collagen stimulation aims to harness your body’s own ability to repair itself. The goal is to stimulate the cells to make and repair existing collagen. There are several effective procedures that promote collagen stimulation. Stimulation can be accomplished via fractional laser, RF radiofrequency heat, ultrasonic heat, and micro-needling. Studies have also shown that use of PDO threads and dermal fillers also stimulate new collagen. Topically, prescription retinoid cream such as Refissa are the best products to use for both cell renewal and collagen stimulation.

By focusing on these two elements in your skincare and treatment choices you will continue to look better each passing day. After five years, you will discover you look better than you did before. Choose a medical spa and ask them to work with you to create a plan that achieve your goals.
