Collagen Anti-Aging Facial / Skin Treatment
Collagen Anti-Aging Facial w/Microderm $165
Collagen Anti-Aging Facial/Skin Treatment promotes luminous complexion, rejuvenates lax skin. As we age, our cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin laxity occurs around age 35 to 40 when the quantity and quality of the collagen begins to decline. By the age of 50 our body cells produce only 35% of the collagen. There is also less elastin production, and less glycosaminoglycans (GAG) formation.
Treatment includes professional double cleanse, Microderm resurfacing, stem cell and brightening serums, vit c, collagen mask infused into the skin with Ultrasound/Ultrasonic.
Treatment time 1hr 30 min
Collagen fibers give the skin resistance to strain and traction. Collagen constitutes about 70% of skin mass; Collagen decreases about 1% per year after age 35. It may look like a small decline, but as such a major component of the skin, it will affect skin volume and its physical properties. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age. There is also less elastin production, and less glycosaminoglycans (GAG) formation (which keeps the skin hydrated).
Also, aging changes collagen structure: what was an organized pattern in young skin, in older skin becomes thick fibrils assembled in disorganized bundles. It is not only quantity - it is also quality.
If we care about slowing down and reversing skin aging, we should care about collagen. Because collagen is such a major constituent of the skin, the objective should be to stimulate its synthesis and preserve the collagen protein in an active, organized structure.
We also want to prevent glycation, the attachment of sugar molecules to the protein amino acids, a modification that affects protein function. The fibroblasts are the main cells in the dermis; they specialize in producing two types of proteins: collagen and elastin, which are a major part of the extra-cellular matrix.
Prevention is key to minimizing wrinkles and age later...
