Whether you are looking for a beauty enhancement to fight against aging, correct sun damage or any type of skin problem, such as acne or rosacea, your youngest and most beautiful complexion comes from a healthy skin optimally balanced in hydration, tone, texture and firming.
Your skin has three layers. These include the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissues. The outermost layer or epidermis consists of five underlays where a number of skin problems can occur.
The epidermis contains sebaceous glands that can become overactive during adolescence and produce excess sebum. Clogged pores, associated with an excess of oil and bacteria, are responsible for acne breakouts that affect teenagers and often continue into adulthood.
Problems with hyperpigmentation
The melocytes, responsible for the pigmentation of the skin, are also found in the epidermis. Sun damage, aging, and a number of environmental stressors can increase melanin production by melanocytes, resulting in age spots, brown discolouration, and other problems of hyperpigmentation.
The dermis or second layer is where the new skin cells are formed. The dermis contains three types of tissue, two of which are collagen and elastin. These two protein tissues are responsible for the consistency and suppleness of the skin.
Collagen, elastin and aging
Collagen, a connective protein tissue, strengthens the skin by providing structure and firmness. Elastin is the substance that keeps skin soft, supple, toned and flexible. With aging, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, resulting in the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, a loss of tone and sagging skin. The natural process of skin erosion, in which dead skin is replaced by new healthy skin, becomes unstable with aging. This produces dry, rough skin that also contributes to wrinkles.
Renewing the skin with proper care
Through exfoliation, dead skin is removed, pores are clogged and new skin emerges on the surface. When it is associated with proper hydration and nutrition, skin regeneration becomes optimal, collagen and elastin production is stimulated and problems encountered in the deeper layers of the skin can be corrected before they come out on the surface of the skin. The result is a balanced, toned, clean and hydrated skin, with a reduced number of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
VISIA complexion analysis
VISIA Complexion Analysis is a leading non-invasive technology that detects and measures vascular and melanic conditions, spots (pigmentation), pores, wrinkles, texture, porphyrins, imperfections, UV spots and photodamage. Because the VISIA analysis includes deep, superficial layers, it identifies current and future skin problems that can be corrected by appropriate treatment.
Resurfacing the skin for optimal health
Resurfacing with AFA face peels and / or the revolutionary HydraFacial ™ solution is an inexpensive alternative or an improvement to anti-wrinkle and rejuvenating laser treatments. These two advanced skin resurfacing procedures are ideal for harsh and damaged conditions and provide an anti-aging breakthrough as they exfoliate, restore optimal hydration, balance skin tone and texture, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Will your next outbreak of acne, rosacea rash, brown spots, wrinkles or other signs of aging due to sun damage be about to form on your face from the deep layers of your skin? Once identified through advanced technology, these skin and other problems can be avoided. A suitable skin renewal, which optimizes the health of your skin in all layers, is the solution for a smooth, balanced, clean, hydrated and firm skin that is noticeable!
