Corneotherapy – What is it
Central to the philosophy of dermaviduals is corneotherapy – the science of maintaining and restoring healthy skin.
Corneotherapy is aimed at the recovery of the stratum corneum, but above all it improves the function of the skin barrier and subsequently the overall homeostasis of the skin.
Adapted to the needs of individual skin types and conditions, it is the number one preventative measure against premature ageing and potential skin problems. By repairing the skin barrier under the principles of corneotherapy; we reduce trans-epidermal water loss, ensuring external aggravating factors are held at bay and the effectiveness of the dermal membrane structure is assured.
Utilising DMS base creams (Derma membrane structure) which create an affinity with the skin and or a base gel allows therapists or practitioners to individually adapt creams, masks, packs and lotions with active agent concentrates such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, vitamin A (and many more as listed below), to treat and correct particular skin conditions.
