Slow the Aging Process: Cell Metabolism and Anti Aging

slow aging process
Is it possible to slow the aging process?

As we age our bodies will inevitably go through many changes and stages. Our bodily functions begin to slow along with our lifestyles. We begin to notice changes in the way we look and feel.

Slowing of metabolism

One of the first things that may come to mind when considering the aging process is the slowing of metabolism. When we think about the declining rate of metabolism, most will only consider the metabolic rate of the digestive system. But what about the cell metabolism of our skin?

Our bodies are composed of billions of specialized cells. These cells are grouped according to functions, and make up the different body systems and organs within the human anatomy.

The largest organ found within the body is the skin. Its main function is to protect the body from the external environment and regulate body temperature. It is a reflection of your current health, age, and oftentimes your lifestyle.

Caring for your skin in your late 20’s to mid 30’s

Lazy Skin Cells

Typically in our late 20’s – mid 30’s our skin cells slow down and become “lazy”. They no longer regenerate at the same speed in which it used to in our earlier years.

This laziness creates a backlog of dead cells on the surface of the skin and paves the way for the appearance of fine linesdehydrationpremature wrinkles, and dullness. Sun damage endured over the years now begins to reach the surface in the form of brown spots (hyperpigmentation), broken capillaries, and excessive ruddiness.

Your Anti-Aging Journey: Start It Sooner Than Later.

The first step in the anti-aging journey is prevention. It is never too early to start caring for your skin and preparing for what the years will bring. We recommend younger clients begin with a healthy homecare regimen which includes proper cleansing and hydration day and night.

A fresh cleanse in the morning and daily moisturizer with a minimum 20 SPF, and a hydrating eye gel to keep your eye area looking vibrant.

At the end of the day we suggest a double cleanse to first clear the skin of daily environmental buildup/makeup, and then wash the bare skin itself. This routine will keep your skin balanced and protected throughout the day and night.

For younger clients beginning a professional skin treatment schedule, Photofacials will deliver immediate results in the clearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and tightening of pores and texture. With a refresher treatment every 6 months your skin will defy age!

At this stage in the aging process resurfacing and exfoliation are vital in keeping your cells active, and clear of nutrient blocking dead cells.

Changes and Damage to Our Skin.

The changes and damage to our skin do not happen overnight, and everyday time slowly claims its youth. Therefore, once the skin reaches a more advanced stage in aging, reversing the effects of time is a process that also takes time and commitment.

Understanding your skin care products and the interactions of the ingredients with your skin is important when selecting your products. What may have worked a few years ago may not be ideal for your skin now.

Ensure that your products are age appropriate, targeted to treat your areas of concern, and most importantly protect your skin from further damage with minimum SPF20.

Chemical Peels- Acne

Our Peel menu has changed. View our NEW Chemical Peel Menu

Acne Peel; Ideal for oily, acneic, and sun-damaged skin.

Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

PLEASE REVIEW THE CRITERIA BEFORE BOOKING YOUR ACNE PEEL.

Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.

The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.

This 20% salicylic acid solution provides intense exfoliation for problematic or oily skin areas, even within oil-rich pores.

Pre-treatment protocols:

  • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
  • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
  • Must wait a minimum of 1 week from last tanning session

Time frame: 15-30 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-8

Downtime required: 1-7 days

Contraindications:

  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin cancer (remission under 2 years)
  • Use of photosensitive medication and herbs
  • Active infection of Herpes Simplex in treatment area
  • Active skin infection

Potential side effects:

  • Discomfort
  • Fragile skin
  • Edema (swelling)
  • Erythema (redness)

NOTE: To be eligible for this treatment your skin must be pretreated with AHA or BHA (e.g. Enzyme Peel or pretreated with home care).
