Anti-Aging Science

As the skin ages, it loses the cells that are responsible for maintaining healthy, strong and Youthful looking skin.  This Aging cannot be avoided and can only be improved with the addition of the cells that provide the messages to overcome this intrinsic Aging.

In addition, the body is constantly exposed to external factors that cause continued inflammation of the skin and add to the natural process of Aging such as sun damage.

This results in the seven main signs of Aging, (Dark spots, Sagging skin, Dull glow-less skin, Lines & wrinkles, Dry skin, Patchy skin, Open pores.) which is the focus of all Anti-Aging products.

The main constituents that cause intrinsic Aging are[1];

  • Glycosaminoglycans (CAG). These hold moisture into the skin.  As you age, the ability to replace these decreases. Many current treatments attempt to add moisture to the skin through creams.  This is treating the condition and not the cause and the most effective way to enhance skin moisture is to increase the CAG’s in the skin
  • This is responsible for the strength of the skin.  Lack of collagen causes the skin to sag and wrinkle.  The overall collagen content per unit area of the skin surface is known to decline approximately 1% year.    Most Anti-Aging treatments performed in clinics focus on improving the amount of collagen. Topically, the amount of collagen can be improved if the correct messages are sent to the cells in the skin.
  • Elastin and collagen are both proteins found in connective tissues of the skin. Elastin, as the name implies has the actual property of being elastic. It’s responsible for allowing tissues in the body to “snap back” to their original shape after being stretched or contracted

Not one of these constituents is more important that the other and the aim of any Anti-Aging regiment would be to ensure that these cells are replaced.

It is also important not to forget about the external effects on aging, as we will have continued exposure to sun and other factors as we get older.

The ideal Anti-Aging treatment should be one that could;

  • Increase the collagen, elastin and CAG’s in the skin, with the application of the best current technology. Growth Factors are the only way to replace these cells topically and only if they can be absorbed under the skin
  • Deal with inflammation caused by external factors such as sun damage
  • Use safe and well established ingredients to deal with the other effect of external sun damage such as excess anti-oxidants on the skin etc.
