The "buzz word" being used when people are talking about restoring a more youthful look to their face and skin is, most prominently, collagen. What is it and how can we get more of it?
Collagen is your skin's most important natural building block and one of the most youth enhancing proteins. Collagen lends an important hand in offering the structural foundation that is essential in providing volume and fullness to your skin. Although you are born with an abundance of collagen, it continuously depletes as you age and the production slows down and eventually ceases. Well, Mother Nature has met her match.
When the body needs to build any new cellular structure, such as in the event of an injury, collagen speeds up production in order to assist with the healing process. Application of certain types of acids in the formulation of chemical facial and body peels are ideal for causing such controlled injuries. When an appropriate acid or a combination of acid is used, your skin is able to benefit from the stimulation due to having a cell receptor that correctly fits the molecule. This means that the injury is just significant enough to speed up collagen production, but safe enough that you will not incur any downtime. This careful chemical selection is inspired by chirality, the use of only the positive producing molecules for the most beneficial response.
Only injury can stimulate the production of collagen. Our chemical peels will provide the right amount of exfoliation and a gentle, healthy change deep in your skin to create a beautiful, renewed complexion.
