About Skin Care
Skin aging is a natural and inevitable reality that everyone faces. In addition to the degenerative age-related processes that change the appearance of the skin, other factors, such as sun damage, pollution and lifestyle choices, can take a toll as well. With age, naturally decreasing levels of collagen and elastin in the skin can rob the complexion of youthful firmness and radiance.
Years of UV exposure can result in sun spots, while the effects of gravity can compromise the integrity of facial muscles and lead to sagging and wrinkles. Poor nutrition or smoking can contribute to a breakdown of healthy, supportive skin tissues and lead to a prematurely aged appearance. However, harnessing the power of medical-grade, cutting-edge skin care products can significantly help repair damage that has already occurred and better protect the skin into the future.
