Ageing: Lines & Wrinkles

Frown lines, wrinkles around your eye area, lines appearing on your top lip, thinning skin on the cheeks, sun spots on your hands or your jowls losing definition. Ageing is inevitable but the rate in which it happens is debatable.

What happens to make our skin cells age and what can we do about it?

Cell Turnover Begins To Slow

Cell turnover is your bodies natural exfoliation process, responsible for shedding your dead skin cells and making room for new cells to come through.

Baby’s skin is soft and plump to touch because it renews itself easily (high cell turnover), when you hit 25 this process starts to slow down, leaving your skin a little dull and not quite as plump and smooth as it once was.

Solution? Rather than reaching for exfoliation scrubs, derma-planning and peel treatments; which only serve to remove the outer layer of your skin, giving the appearance of plump and youthful skin.

You need to encourage the repair of your skins DNA via topical and internal use of Vitamin A.

Collagen Production Begins To Slow

Collagen and elastin are what give your skin its bounce and plumpness. Unfortunately, from the age of 30 we produce approximately 1% less collagen every year and there are variables which can speed up this process even further:

  • Sun Exposure
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Poor Diet
  • Alcohol

Solution? The use of Peptides, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Micro-Needling to stimulate your skin’s natural growth factors and natural collagen production process.

Uneven Skin Tone

Dark patches starting to form? Broken capillaries? Skin tone not as even as it used to be? All of these are a result of UV exposure over the years. UV exposure stimulates are Malanacite Cells to produce Melanin, if the Malanacite Cells are over stimulated they can over produce pigment and leave your skin less even in colour.

The solution… Always wear protection! Make sure you wear your SPF 365 days a year (even when its cloudy).

The supplementation and topical use of antioxidants especially Vitamin A and Vitamin C, to help fight free radicals, repair skin cell DNA and correct +
repair un-even colour.

In salon Vitamin Facials will help to target even the deepest layers of the skin.

Moisture Levels Drop

Skin starting to feel dehydrated? As we age and processes slow down we don’t produce as much moisture in our skin. This is partly due to our hyaluronic acid levels decreasing, making our skin feel less nourished.

What is the solution? We need to stimulate natural moisture by topically applying hyaluronic acid, supplementing Vitamin A and Omega-3; all to help our skin hold moisture.

Volume Starts To Thin

Skin starting to thin and sag? As we age hormonal changes occur, these hormonal changes impact our skin in the following ways: skin starts to thin, we lose volume as facial fat levels and muscle laxity decrease… the joys of getting old.
What is the solution? To thicken your skin with the topical use of Colostrum Gel and Vitamin A.
