Anti-Aging Facial Treatments

Guest Blogger: Peg De Graaf, Clinical Esthetician. My philosophy on face treatments for women over 40, is to stimulate the body to repair itself. Exfoliate, stimulate, nourish, and repair. Nature slows down to a crawl as we age so you need to assist nature; exfoliate with acids (glycolic, salicylic, malic, lactic, retinoids, citric etc.) and manually with microdermabrasion. This is the wounding process which brings blood to the tissue and kicks in the lymphatic system. Next is to stimulate with micro-current, radio frequency, LED light and ultrasound. Each modality has its purpose either to stimulate muscle to contract and tighten, heat the dermis so the fibroblast produces more collegan in the cells, then nourish and repair with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, lipids, peptides, telomeres, white and red tea, squalene, resveratrol, human growth factor, arbutin and the list goes on. A good anti-aging skin care regimen involves advanced clinical care over a long period of time, home care with high quality products with active ingredients and aggressive sun protection.
