Cosmeceutical Skin Care
Medical grade skincare, aka cosmeceuticals, differs from department store cosmetics in both efficacy and clinical validation of results. They combine a variety of growth factors and peptides that stimulate both collagen and elastin synthesis and restores damaged skin back to health. Reverse the effects of environmental damage, gravity, and time. Restore your skin’s natural vitality and youthful appearance with effective, safe, and clinically validated skin rejuvenation products.
Medical skin care and rejuvenation has evolved over the years. Gone are the days where the thinking was that you have to destroy your old, weathered, and time-tested skin to stimulate growth and regeneration. Over-stimulation and treatments using lasers, IPL, and other non-surgical devices may also affect the health of your skin. Overly stimulated and exfoliated skin becomes thin, friable, translucent, and hyper-sensitive. As with everything else in life, anti-aging skincare and treatments require balance and harmony. Treatments are required to reverse the effects of age, the elementals, time, and gravity, but in moderation. We offer consultations that are able to customize treatments and skin care regimens to your skin’s needs. Find out how to rejuvenate your skin by restoring health and vigor without harming or destroying your existing skin.
Foundation of Skin Rejuvenation is Protection
Skin rejuvenation is based upon providing adequate sun protection to stop further damage and re-establishing your skin’s normal cellular metabolism and turnover. In the process, your old, damaged, unhealthy skin is exfoliated and newer healthier skin is allowed to replace it. Irregular and uneven melanin deposition is regulated and becomes more evenly distributed, leaving the skin lighter and healthier. Once the skin is protected, treatments and skin care products are more effective in healing and restoring skin health while making it look younger.
Evidence ofSun Damage
Excessive sun exposure results in sun damage that slowly accumulates over time. UVA & UVB rays disrupt normal skin metabolism and cell turnover, accelerates collagen and elastin breakdown, causing both cosmetic blemishes, loose skin, and skin cancer. Common manifestations include the following:
- Uneven/Irregular Skin Pigmentation
- Early Skin Wrinkles
- Solar Lentigenes (Liver Spots/Age Spots)
- Solar Elastosis (Deep verticle wrinkles, loos sagging skin)
- Melasma (facial skin darkening)
- Poikiloderma (irregular reddish brown pigmentation)
