Aging Skin

Through our body’s natural aging process, collagen and elastin bonds begin to break down as our cell metabolism slows down. Collagen is a fibrous protein located deep in the dermal layer of the skin and is responsible for our skin’s plumpness and healing process when the skin is damaged. Elastin is also found in the dermal layer and is responsible for our skin’s elasticity and bounce-back. When collagen and elastin break down, the result is more sallow and sagging skin, which contributes to a more tired and dull complexion. Common areas to show signs of aging are the brows, neck, eye contour, lips, and decollete.

To prevent and maintain visible signs of aging, the skin must be revitalized to speed up the cell metabolism, which in turn reveals newer and healthier skin cells. This is done through products and treatments using active ingredients such as retinols, alpha-hydroxy acid, vitamins, and peptides. Collagen and elastin also break down faster when the skin is exposed to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, making daily sunscreen use imperative to positive results after treatments. Sunscreen also protects the skin after treatments that require downtime.

At Dermis Advanced Skin Care, we treat the signs of aging with a variety of modalities, dependent on individual concerns and comfort levels. These can include injectables (neuromodulators such as Botox to smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles; dermal fillers such as Juvederm to restore lost volume), radio-frequency combined with micro-needling (Secret RF), laser resurfacing technology (Genesis), chemical peels, and oxygenating infusion facials (3-in-1 OxyGeneo).

In order to maintain the results of clinical treatments, appropriate skin care products are always prescribed as part of the after care
