How Scalp Care Helps Promote a Youthful Face

How Scalp Care Helps Promote a Youthful Face

It's a very exciting time in the skincare industry. Slowing the hands of time is of great interest to many, and with modern advancements in technology and ingredients, anti-aging strategies can preserve the youth and vitality of our skin for many years to come. Currently, the hottest topic in the anti-aging industry is PREVENTION.

Turns out that youthful skin starts at the top! AKA, your scalp. Yup. Simple enough right?!  When analyzing the face lift, skincare researchers recognized that the part that gets cut is never the face, but rather parts of loose scalp in order to "lift" the skin on the face back to its original position. So um duh.. reducing aging on the skin of the scalp ensures it remains healthy and in prime condition, slowing down sagging and in turn helping maintain a firmer, more youthful face.

Due to chemicals, environmental exposure and the weight of gravity literally holding everything together, it's been found that our scalp ages about 20 times faster than the skin on our face.   

Are lasers and IPL's worth it?

My clients have always asked my opinion about lasers and IPL’s.   I used to love them.  I’ve personally had both IPL and Fraxel and can’t deny how instantly the skin seems refreshed and renewed.   But now I know better.  Unfortunately, in most cases, it’s a quick fix rather than solving the underlying cause.   

Lasers and IPL’s use multiple wavelengths of high intensity light
simultaneously (think extreme heat) to induce a wound healing response, stimulate collagen and elastin and speed up cell renewal. The promise?  A more youthful and clear complexion.  Lasers and IPL's are marketed to treat visible capillaries, scars, rosacea, pigmentation.  It's now being understood that this "extreme heat" process to stimulate an "emergency repair response" actually damages the skin further and accelerates aging. 

Skin Rejuvenation

Preserving skin health and longevity has been at the heart of my practice for almost 15 years. I’ve always been amazed at our skins’ ability to rejuvenate itself.  We can really put it through the ringer and it manages to find its way back to balance. That’s because our skin’s natural state of being IS balance, free from irritation, patchiness, dryness, break-outs, and even most wrinkling.
