Above results achieved by combining several anti-aging skin toning treatments. Also, each facial session was customized with different modalities as her skin changed. Her professional treatments included microneedling, dermaplaning, LED Phototherapy, Radiancy MicroPhoto (LHE) and Rezenerate Facial Treatments.
Her home skin care routine includes Neova Skin Care Products and Rhonda Allison Products
Changes In Aging Skin
The supportive structure, starts to break down and it becomes more difficult for our skin to build it back up again. As we age the cell renewal process decreases, resulting in thinner skin more susceptible to environmental damage. Our skin become inefficient, the epidermis starts thinning, blood vessels walls thins, we sweat less, the skin becomes more fragile, more sensitive to light and heat and extreme temperature.
Women going through menopause oil production gradually lessens. Making it harder to keep the skin moist, resulting in dryness and itchiness.
Outward Signs Of Aging Skin
Dry skin, fine lines and deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, and age spots are outward signs of aging. Dull, rough complexion is another visible sign of aging. Healthy, young skin remains smooth and radiant because fresh, new cells are brought to the surface as older cells are continuously shed.
Rebuilding Solutions To Slow Down Effects Of Aging
- Plant Stem Cells
Retinoids - stimulates the fibroblasts to build collagen
Retinoids (Vitamin A) and its derivatives retinaldehyde, retinol and tretinoin have antioxidant effects. They generate the production of collagen and reduce enzymes that break the peptide bonds in collagen. Retinaldehyde is an exceptional anti-aging ingredient, when compared to tretinoin, it causes less skin irritation.
Retinoids are beneficial to repair not only extrinsic aging (environmental) photo damage, smoking, air pollution, and stress, but also intrinsic aging (chronologic), the glycation process.
Skin Stem Cells
Skin stem cells have a limited life expectancy. Intrinsic (internal factors) or extrinsic factors can affect their functionality.
With age, skin stem cells are less active and lower in number. Explaining why the reduction of skin stem cells is considered one of the primary cause of skin aging.
Plant Stem Cell To Protect Skin Stem Cells
All stem cells, regardless of their origin (plant, animal or human) contain specific epigenetic factors whose function is to maintain the self-renewal capacity of stem cells.
Antioxidants prevent and protect your cells against the effect of free radical damage.
There is no safe way to tan. Every time you tan, you damage your skin. As this damage builds, you speed up the aging of your skin and increase your risk for all types of skin cancer.
Each year more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the US, over 90 percent of which are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays (UVR). Similarly, most of the skin damage we associate with aging - wrinkles, sagging, leathering, and discoloration - is UVR-related. This damage is cumulative.
What is the best skin care routine?
It takes patience to achieve healthy youthful looking skin. Becoming overly aggressive will only exacerbate any existing problems. You should take a synergetic approach when addressing skin care concern. Whether the goal is to have firmer skin or toner facial muscles, you have to combine several anti-aging methods and stay consist in your skin care routine.
Dermaplaning, or dermablading is a safe mechanical exfoliation treatment.
An esthetician uses a modified sterile surgical scalpel to gently remove the outer layers of dead skin, fine vellous hair (peach fuzz) and hormonal coarse facial hairs. Exposing smoother more vibrant looking skin that easily absorbs facial serums and moisturizers
Also providing a relaxing and gentle alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion making it a suitable choice for anyone who has extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins.
Also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Research has shown microneedling is beneficial to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the overall appearance of the skin. A study of 480 patients treated throughout 10 years with microneedling showed a 60–80% improvement, a significant increase in collagen and elastin.
Radiancy MicroPhotoTherapy - LHE ( Light & Heat Energy)
LHE creates a mild thermal insult to the dermal/epidermal juction. Penetrating deep beneath the skin to trigger a natural wound healing process.
Periorbital wrinkles and skin laxity are the first, most noticeable signs of facial aging. LHE is pain-free and clinically proven to improve these effects. Skin appears firmer, smoother and younger as it loses its laxity and wrinkles fade, creating a natural lifting effect.
