Anti Aging FAQ's
Q: What Happens to Skin When We Age?
A. Both heredity and environment play a big role in how skin ages. Environment—sun damage and pollution—plays the biggest role in the way skin functions. Sun damage is the worst culprit since it is cumulative. The damage begins from youth.
As we age, skin cells divide at a slower rate as they lose their capacity to renew themselves. The average cell renewal rate for a baby is 14 days. For a teenager, the rate is 3-4 weeks, a middle-aged adult 4-7 weeks, and a mature adult (50+) 7-12 weeks or more. This progressively longer span of cell turnover allows for much more to go wrong. About 20% of the cells clump together and are nonfunctional before they reach the skin's surface, having died on the way to the top. The result? The first layer of the skin (stratum corneum) becomes thicker and denser, fine lines deepen, and skin loses its clarity.
Another factor that causes progressive development of wrinkles and leads to sagging skin is the loss of collagen fibers, the building blocks of firmness and elasticity. Collagen, Greek for "glue," is a connective tissue that gives the face and body much of its shape. Fibers of collagen are woven together throughout the body like threads of fabric to form a framework for new cells and blood vessels to grow.
The way your skin looks is directly related to the way in which it is supported. As we age, the loss of small blood vessels and a decrease in new capillaries begin to cut off the blood supply that nourishes the skin. Our faces begin to look less healthy when the rate at which irritants and toxins are removed decreases. Skin becomes more prone to free radical damage (which is really damage to the cells and DNA).
These degenerative conditions of aging skin progress with time. But some of them can be minimized or reversed with a carefully applied anti-aging program. To find out if you are ready for an anti-aging program, do the simple test below. If "yes" is the answer to any of these questions, it is time to start reversing the clock.
The Skin Test
- Do you see fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and neck?
- Does your skin not "bounce back" when lifted with your fingers?
- Do you notice skin discolorations such as dark and light spots?
- Does your skin appear to be thinner with visible capillaries?
- Does your skin feel dry and rough and look sallow, lackluster and dull?
Q: What Skin Care treatments are recommended for Anti-Aging?
A. We offer many result-oriented skincare treatments and peels. During your initial personal consultation your skin therapist will help you choose the best possible skin care treatment that will work just for you.
Customized Facial: Our Customized Facial is the most popular skin care treatment. An esthetician evaluates skin type on an individual basis and customizes a specific facial that best fits your skin's needs. Often, combinations of several treatments are used to achieve the desired result, at no additional cost to the clients, including Oxygen Treatment, Ultrasound, High Frequency, Light Therapy, Microdermabrasion, Vitamin and Collagen Therapy, Light Chemical Peels and more.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a gentle skin resurfacing treatment that removes the topical layers of the skin and stimulates the production of new cells and skin firming collagen. It improves skin tone, helps with scaring, facial lines, and minimizes pore size. Our treatments are finished with a hydrating mask that leaves your skin looking radiant and rejuvenated. 6 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Oxygen Treatment: Authentic oxygenation treatments, coupled with a spray of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, will enhance your skin's health at the cellular level by supplying the fibroblast with energy for rejuvenation. It can be used as a separate treatment or in addition to microdermabrasion, facials, laser treatments or chemical peels.
Anti-Aging Facial: The Anti-Aging Facial leaves skin firmer and more youthful. Steam therapy opens pores for deep cleansing followed by a facial and neck massage to enhance circulation. The skin is then exfoliated to provide optimal penetration of the active form of Vitamin C that provides the rebuilding of underlying collagen. A cream conditioning and collagen treatment mask complete this treatment.
Chemical Peels: The peels act immediately to increase the rate of skin cell turnover, an important skin function that tends to decrease with age. As a result of this enhanced cell renewal, the skin becomes rejuvenated when examined clinically and microscopically. The increased cell turnover also sheds sun-damaged skin and then directs cell growth in a youthful pattern that results in smoother, younger looking skin.
Chemical peels remove layers of the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells. They tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and pigmentation, help control acne and leave the complexion with a healthy glow. The depth of the peel recommended depends on the skin type and desired result. The chemicals produce a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of new skin from beneath. Dermavita offers different types and strengths of chemical peels such as: Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Vita Active Peel, and medical grade Obagi, Lactic, Radiance and ViPeel.
Facial Toning: (also known as Face Lifting Facial or Micro-Current).
This technique helps stimulate nerves to reeducate muscle tissue, stretching or tightening as necessary, giving the client a fresher, younger appearance: a firmer, slimmer face and neck; tighter brows, uplifted mouth and cheeks, and smoother skin. This procedure is completely safe and brings visible results immediately. In this treatment, the Esthetician uses Micro-Current to exercise and strengthen the facial muscles. Micro-Current is a low level of electricity that mirrors the body's currents, which in turn trigger chemical reactions at a cellular level. The Micro-Current devices mimic the way the brain relays messages to the muscles.
A series of 6 to 12 Facial Toning Treatments is recommended for optimum result.
Collagen Eye Treatment: This treatment will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness, and relax the eye area. Cold collagen pads provide the skin with intensive hydration, culminating with a finishing application of vitamin serum and cold aromatic compresses. This treatment will enhance any facial.
