Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen and the ability to repair itself as effectively as when we were younger. The bounce to our skin doesn’t perform as it used to.. our skin is like springs on a mattress – when a mattress gets old we toss it in the bin and buy a new one – with our skin we don’t have that same luxury!
A lot of people go to a Beauty salon when they hit 40 wanting to ‘fix things’, whereas skin rejuvenation should be a primary point of self-care for most people to maintain optimal skin and also maintain the elastin and collagen that is there.
What can we do to help?
Treatments for stimulating collagen and elastin are the focus of skin rejuvenation. We need to feed the fibroblast cells which create collagen as well as remodel what has already packed it in. To do this we use light-based therapies, radiofrequency to heat the dermal layer and needling to mechanically stimulate and force tissue into a cascade of inflammatory events which bring on collagen remodeling, restructuring and reinforcing.
