Let’s talk Elastin. Help improve skin elasticity.
ELASTIN is a key protein in our skin’s dermal extra cellular matrix (ECM), which ensures skin bounciness, tone, and elasticity. With age, affected by extrinsic and intrinsic aging factors elastin decreases by 10 % every decade starting in our 20’s.
The most well-known elastin deficiency is skin elastosis caused by UV radiation, smoking and aging. Clinically, aged skin is characterized by a loss of hydration, rough texture, irregular pigmentation, yellowish colour, broken blood vessels, skin wrinkling, dermal thinning and fine lines. Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) ie oxidative distress active radicals due to metabolic waste accumulated in the skin cells in much higher concentrations affects our skin cell DNA molecules causing premature aging, collagen and elastin degradation.
How to recognise the loss of skin elasticity?
- Epidermal aging is easiest to notice due to epidermal thinning, pigmentation, and unevenness or ‘age spots’.
- Dermal aging results in skin thinning due to decreased fibroblast activity reduced collagen synthesis and increased UV radiation elastin breakdown. Skin extra cellular matrix containing collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin is destroyed resulting in skin sagginess, wrinkling, cellulite, and dull texture.
- Metabolic skin repair processes slow down with age and accumulated extrinsic cell damage ie metabolic waste, oxidative distress, tired and senile cells. Skin cell repair and energy metabolic processes are reduced. Cells are unable to repair as quickly, and their intake of nutrition is reduced due to decreased blood vessel network and oxygen availability.
Regenerative treatments to improve elastin production, skin elasticity and skin ageing:
REVERSE SKIN CELLS OXIDATIVE DISTRESS and METABOLIC DAMAGE:
Photofacial – the power of light energy to restart your skin!
Restart your cell metabolism, clear oxidative distress from your skin cells, and improve cell mitochondria activity.
Visible effects in 1-3 sessions, once every 2 weeks: reduced pigmentation, brighter skin texture, increased hydration and elasticity
REDUCE the SIGNS OF EPIDERMAL SKIN ELASTOSIS (ie sun damage):
Medical Peels: 3 Step Peel by Zo Skin
Peel old epidermis dead skin cells, restart underlying skin metabolism and increase collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
Visible effects following single peel session – brighter, even texture and tone skin, improved skin elasticity and health.
Downtime can take 3-5 days, but you should be able to socialise on 3rd day after the peel. Suitable for all seasons.
REVERSE SKIN DEHYDRATION:
Hyaluronic acid prevents UV damage by increasing water content in skin cells. It also induces skin remodelling by replacing HA lost with aging and stimulating elastin production. The best treatments: HA+ antioxidants (gluthatione and vitamins) skin boost: Teosyal Redensity 1 or PROFILHO for deeper skin repair (face and/or body)
Visible effects: increased skin elasticity and hydration following a single session.
BOOST EXTRA CELLULAR MATRIX REPAIR :
PRP with RF Microneedling (SECRET RF BY CUTERA)
An excellent way to combat aging by stimulating fibroblasts and in turn elastin and collagen production. Downtime only 24-48 hours depending on energy level used.
Visible effects of brighter, toned up and healthier skin following single session!
SUBDERMAL SKIN SUPPORT with ELASTIN and COLLAGEN STIMULATORS:
Collagen Biostimulators – Sculptra, Lanluma and ELANSE – excellent extracellular matrix stimulators! Single session will ensure collagen boost up to 6 months, with effects lasting 2-4 years.
Visible effects 4 weeks post treatment – toned up, bouncier and tighter skin without obvious signs of enhancement.
Facial & Body threads are excellent way to support extracellular matrix of aging or sun damaged skin. Threads are biocompatible and gradually dissolve while stimulating your collagen and elastin.
Visible antiage and skin tightening effects after single treatment, results lasts 16-24 months and longer.
ADD on internal aging clock reversal IV drip containing alpha Lipoic Acid – one of the most powerful mitochondria energy restarting antioxidants! Well known in Korea as ultimate age reversal fountain of youth.
Skin Care products boosting elastin and collagen production: growth factor serums, tretinoin, and glycolic acid based creams.
