Skin that’s Forever Young!

To get skin that defies your age, you have to know what you’re up against. Here’s what’s going on and how to fight back.

Skin that’s Forever Young!
 
Here’s what’s going on and how to fight back.


First step to ageless skin is understanding the process:

  • Cell turnover slow - Through the natural exfoliation process, your skin sheds dead cells as younger ones, generated deep in the epidermis (skin's top layer), migrate upward to replace them. In young, healthy skin, cells take about 28 days to reach the surface and flake off 12 days later. As you age, renewal slows: New cells aren't produced as quickly, and old ones hang on longer.
  • Free radicals attack - The body is assaulted by unstable oxygen molecules—called free radicals—from pollution, stress, cigarette smoke, and the skin's top enemy, the sun. Over many years, this causes cell irregularities, including discoloration and cancer.
  • Collagen breaks down - After age 40, the body typically slows down the rate it produces collagen, a mesh of protein that, together with elastin, helps keep your skin plump and elastic. When collagen degrades and is not replaced at the same rate, the outer skin loses volume and settles into creases and wrinkles.
  • Skin dries out - Your cells lose moisture faster after 40, as estrogen production and thyroid function—both of which affect sweat glands—slow down.

And here’s how to fight back:

Apart from those natural remedies such as avoiding sun exposure, get adequate amount of sleep, drinking a lot of water, exercise, eat antioxidants etc… we’ve got the best and most advanced treatment for skin firming, SkinTyte referring to Sciton’s BBL™ BroadBand Light technology. It’s an infrared and wavelength energy that works in two phases: heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction and overtime that leads to remodeling the collagen and tightening of skin.

Any patients can benefit in this treatment, any kind of skin program whether it is for skin texture, Rejuvenation in terms of fighting laxity as far as their long term fight against aging. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
