Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is one of the manifestations ageing skin where the integrity of skin cell as a whole is compromised whether the cause is environmental damage or biological. During young age, the skin is soft, firm and elastic, and these characteristics of the skin are facilitated by proper hydration of skin cells and production of adequate levels of collagen and elastin. However, as we age, our skin’s ability to produce elastin and collagen decreases. As these protein fibers break down, the skin loses its strength and elasticity, fine lines and deep wrinkles begin to appear. These skin imperfections may also appear in young age due to skin damage from environmental influences like UV irradiation and free radical injury. Fine lines are the lines on our face, usually around the mouth, nose, eyes, and forehead that are not deep and are not usually noticeable when a proper makeup is put on. Wrinkles can occur anywhere on the face, are not straight lines usually, are deeper than fine lines, and cannot usually be masked by putting the makeup on. Common contributing factors for fine lines and wrinkles are aging process, UV irradiation, muscle movement, surgery, injuries, acne, and skin diseases that end up with the formation of scars. The underlying problem with fine lines and wrinkles are not just the lines that come to surface with an unpleasant visual effect, it is the integrity of skin beneath the surface which is compromised and needs to be addressed. Various skin care approaches are needed to treat fine lines as well as deep wrinkles. These include moisturizers infused with proper delivery system containing pure nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, anti wrinkle peptides, stem cell, Oxygen therapy , and high performance Bio Marine actives, Minerals and Amino acids, are highly promising containing growth factors and proteins that promote growth of new cells, production of collagen and elastin, and help firm wrinkles, slow the development of new lines, and repair UV damaged skin. A balanced Nutrition intake and balanced adequate sleep pattern is another important factor in maintaining a healthy and youthful complexion.
Furthermore, Resurfacing techniques using chemical peels, such as our Multi Fruit Acids +kojic Acid, Multi fruit acid crème , and our Dual action microdermabrasion crème are highly effective in conjunction with other actives mentioned above. Laser, intense pulsed light, and use of skin care ingredients like botulinum toxin that relaxes the facial muscles, and extended blepharoplasty and injection of silicone are other approaches used to treat wrinkles. However, it is imperative to know that the Use of botox and fillers only remedifies temporary relaxation of muscles, or temporarily filling the gap in between skin surface, and does not resolve the underlying problem, where skin cells are damaged due to environmental or aging process, and eventually results into further damage and sagging of skin/ face structure. Therefore, this concern needs to be addressed with proper hydration, nutrition internally and topically. It is also equally important to know that certain nutrients does not reach our skin surface to its optimal % required , therefore it is highly important to apply all necessary nutrients available topically in order to promote growth of new cells , and to slow development of new lines and wrinkles. At Skin Biotonix our complete line is devoted to development and synthesis of collagen and elastin with advanced high performance Ingredients, in its purest form and optimal %, required to promote nutritionally infused, youthful appearance.
