Fortify your skin tissues with these measures!
Did you know, collagen is one of the key building blocks produced naturally by your body to keep the skin firm? Collagen helps to maintain the firmness of your skin and support your body’s tissues. In addition, another natural ingredient – elastin, is responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity. Both fibres are abundant in young skin, but may sadly start to break down with age.
So how do we slow that process down?
Step 1: Stock Up on the Skin Proteins
With age, unfortunately, we don’t produce as much collagen and elastin. The loss of collagen and elastin over time contributes to visible signs of ageing in our skin. Many anti-ageing creams and serums claim to slow down or reverse this process with varying degrees of success. If you’re looking for a more definitive solution, seek out dermal fillers to lift and rejuvenate your skin. In addition to filling wrinkles and providing sustained structural support, some fillers also trigger the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin to restore its elasticity and youthfulness. Seek out a medical professional for the best results!
Step 2: SPF is Your BFF!
Environmental toxins, pollutants, and UV rays cause ageing as they accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin. So slather on a generous amount of sunscreen when sun exposure is expected to protect your skin and to prevent the breakdown of these essential structural proteins.
Step 3: Experience the Beauty of Sound
If you’re looking to lift and sculpt your face, the, US FDA-cleared micro-focused ultrasound with visualization treatment (#mfuv) may just be the solution for you! This treatment harnesses the power of ultrasound to deliver its collagen-boosting effect. Bypassing the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of micro-focused ultrasound energy at the right depths and temperature, #mfuv initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen. Gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck, the real results appear over 2–3 months as new collagen is produced. Now, who doesn’t want firmer skin?
Step 4: Beauty Sleep is Necessary
The skin produces new collagen when you sleep. When your body is at rest, it allows for the production of growth hormones, which then repairs your skin from daily damage and hence slows down the ageing process. So remember to give your body enough rest!
Now that you’ve identified the importance of elastin, remember these steps to maintain the elasticity of your skin!
