What causes wrinkles?
The supportive structure, starts to break down and it becomes more and more difficult for our skin to rebuild and repair itself. As we age the cell renewal process decreases, resulting in thinner skin more susceptible to environmental damage. Our skin become inefficient, the epidermis starts thinning, blood vessels walls thins, we sweat less, the skin becomes more fragile, more sensitive to light and heat and extreme temperature.
As women go through menopause, oil production gradually lessens. Making it harder to keep the skin moist, resulting in dryness and itchiness.
Outward Signs Of Aging Skin
Dry skin, fine lines and deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation are outward signs of aging. Dull, rough complexion is another visible sign of aging. Healthy, young skin remains smooth and radiant because fresh, new cells are brought to the surface as older cells are continuously shed.

Below are must haves for a good skincare routine, along with your cleanser and moisturizer.
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
Vitamin A - stimulates the fibroblasts to build collagen
Vitamin A (retinoids) derivatives retinaldehyde, retinol and tretinoin (retin A) have similar antioxidant benefits. They generate the production of collagen and reduce enzymes that break the peptide bonds in collagen.
Retinaldehyde is an exceptional anti-aging ingredient, when compared to tretinoin, it causes less skin irritation.
Retinoids are beneficial to repair not only extrinsic aging (environmental) photo damage, smoking, air pollution, and stress, but also intrinsic aging (chronologic), the glycation process.
Clinical studies have shown that the topical usage of Vitamin C increases collagen production in young skin as well as aged skin.
Antioxidants prevent and protect your cells against the effect of free radical damage.
There is no safe way to tan. Every time you tan, you damage your skin. As this damage builds, you speed up the aging of your skin and increase your risk for all types of skin cancer.
Each year more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the US, over 90 percent of which are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays (UVR). Similarly, most of the skin damage we associate with aging - wrinkles, sagging, leathering, and hyperpigmentation - is UVR-related. This damage is cumulative.

Also providing a relaxing and gentle alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion making it a suitable choice for anyone who has extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins.
Also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Research has shown microneedling is beneficial to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the overall appearance of the skin. A study of 480 patients treated throughout 10 years with microneedling showed a 60–80% improvement, a significant increase in collagen and elastin.
The Rezenerate utilize a Nanotechnology Nutritional Delivery System. It creates millions of microscopic channels in the uppermost layers of the skin, making it ultra-absorbent for product penetration.
Topically applied cosmeceutical serums will absorb 7 to 10 times more increasing the desired results and benefits.
A moderately aggressive treatment to remove dull dead skin cells to rejuvenate and regenerate new skin cells to the surface.
Microdermabrasion is a light-cosmetic procedure that involves an exfoliation’s mechanical medium in order to remove the outermost layer of the dead -skin cells.
MicroPhotoTherapy - LHE (Light & Heat Energy)
MicroPhoto Therapy LHE creates a mild thermal insult to the dermal/epidermal juction. Penetrating deep beneath the skin to trigger a natural wound healing process.
Periorbital wrinkles and skin laxity are the first, most noticeable signs of facial aging. LHE is pain-free and clinically proven to improve these effects. Skin appears firmer, smoother and younger as it loses its laxity and wrinkles fade, creating a natural lifting effect.
