Two ba­sic ther­a­pies cell re­newal and col­la­gen stim­u­la­tion are the ba­sis for most anti-ag­ing treat­ments. With con­sis­tent at­ten­tion, they will tighten droop­ing skin, re­duce wrin­kles, and re­veal a fresher ap­pear­ance. The goal of any anti-ag­ing treat­ment should be bring­ing out your nat­u­ral beauty with­out some­one be­ing able to de­fine a spe­cific change in your ap­pear­ance. A skilled med spa can coun­sel you in this en­deavor.

Cell Re­newal is the process by which skin pro­duces new cells. These cells then travel from the low­est layer of the epi­der­mis to the sur­face and are shed off. Re­newal or turnover keeps dead cells from build­ing up and gives you that healthy, well-rested glow. The cell re­newal process slows with age and dead skin cells stick to the sur­face. Proper ex­fo­li­a­tion is needed to re­move these cells. Us­ing a good cleanser with a sonic brush can make a dra­matic dif­fer­ence. Skin care reg­i­men should be sim­ple and af­ford­able to be ef­fec­tive. Today there are many ex­cel­lent prod­ucts avail­able to ad­dress ev­ery skin type.

Good daily reg­i­men is im­por­tant but also con­sider a se­ries of med spa treat­ments to im­prove the tex­ture of the skin sur­face. Mi­cro­derma-bra­sion, IPL, and peels stim­u­late cell re­newal. A short se­ries of treat­ments can jump start a new reg­i­men. They also build col­la­gen, in­crease firm­ness, and im­prove hy­dra­tion of the largest body or­gan, skin. Con­sis­tent care is im­por­tant to an­ti­ag­ing. Just like den­tal and med­i­cal care for self, ag­ing grace­fully is a process that re­quires ded­i­ca­tion and at­ten­tion.

As you age, col­la­gen pro­duc­tion de­clines and weak­ens skin struc­ture. Wrin­kles ap­pear, skin sags, and lines form around the eyes and mouth. Col­la­gen stim­u­la­tion aims to har­ness your body’s own abil­ity to re­pair it­self. There are sev­eral ef­fec­tive pro­ce­dures that stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion . Stim­u­la­tion can be ac­com­plished via frac­tional laser, RF treat­ment, and mi­cro-needling. Stud­ies have shown that use of PDO threads and der­mal fillers pro­mote new col­la­gen for­ma­tion. At home, Re­fissa, a pre­scrip­tion retinoid cream, is an ef­fec­tive prod­uct to use for both cell re­newal and col­la­gen stim­u­la­tion .
