Anti aging strategies for skin rejuvenation

Skin aging should not be taken lightly at any moment because it is a complex biological process which is a combination of many external or internal factors. A good looking skin should not only be considered for aesthetics but it is an indicator of the overall health and wellbeing of the body. This is the reason why cosmetologists, skin specialists, aestheticians and beauticians devote so much time in finding newer and effective ways of skin rejuvenation and for antiaging treatments.

The aging of skin
Skin follows a natural ‘aging mosaic’ which starts in different body cells at different times but whose first obvious marks become visible through the skin. Genetics, hormones, chronic light exposure, pollution, ionizing radiation, chemicals , toxins are all involved in physiological alterations and progressive changes I the skin layers eventually bringing about a change in the appearance of the skin, especially on those areas which are exposed to the sun.

In the quest of means to improve the skin appearance people usually look for and indulge in many antiaging products it increase the rate of skin rejuvenation and skin healing.

The rejuvenated skin. What do you want to achieve?
The mainstay of any antiaging therapy is to achieve a healthy, smooth, blemish free, translucent and resilient skin. Clinicians almost universally agree that ‘looking better’ does not mean ‘looking younger.’ There are many factors which affect the final impact that any natural antiaging treatment will leave on the skin. These are age, general health status, type of the skin and lifestyle. Hence, the desired anti-aging effect is a step by step process which makes use of many methods for skin bio revitalization, skin rejuvenation, skin augmentation and restoration of different skin layers.

Prevention is always better than cure
The various skin antiaging approaches comprise of cosmetological care, use of topical natural or chemical agents, invasive procedures, use f antioxidants or hormone replacement therapy and correction of eating habits and lifestyle factors and use of preventive medicine.

One of the most important reasons to keep your skin healthy and functioning is that it offers protection against dehydration, infection of different microorganisms, allergens, irritants, reactive oxygen species and radiation. Hence, daily skin care is a more suitable option than antiaging therapies. Daily skin care helps in increasing skin regeneration, elasticity, smoothness and hence can change the skin condition temporarily. Skin care also acts as a preventive step in stopping the degradation of the skin and its primary structural constituents like collagen and elastin to prevent formation of wrinkles.

Natural antioxidants and sunscreens should also be used regularly to enhance the protective effects they exert. Sun-avoidance, sun protection, using sunscreens to block/ reduce skin exposure to UV radiation and use of natural antioxidants in combination to reduce and neutralize free radicals constitute important strategies in preventive skin care. Nutritional supplements and Vitamin C and E also play a significant role in preventing sun damage of the skin.

Antiaging treatment for skin rejuvenation
The topical skin rejuvenation products rich in antioxidants such as vitamins, polyphenols and flavonoids reduce the damage to the collagen by the free radicals present in the tissues. Vitamin C, B3, and E are considered to be most important skin rejuvenation antioxidants because they can penetrate the skin. Research has proven that Vitamin C has efficient skin antiaging effect by increasing the formation of collagen.

When used in combination with antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E have most effective anti-aging results. Vitamin E is also a major component of antiaging products because it has anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative effects and smoothens the skin and contributes to photo protection of the skin. Vitamin A affects the collagen metabolism and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres. Retinols and tretinoin are pharmacological agents use to reduce the signs of UV induced early skin aging such as wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and pigmentation, Polypeptides are used to stimulate the collagen synthesis and enhance skin metabolism.

Green tea and Soya when used in various skin products reduce the DNA damage in the skin.

Invasive procedures
Invasive procedures are meant to remove the damaged epidermis and replace the tissue with remodelled skin layers and also make a way for formation of new collagen. Chemical peels are antiaging techniques to cause a chemical ablation of skin layers to result in an even and light skin by stimulating regeneration and repair mechanisms. Chemical peels are associated with many side effects such as hyperpigmentation, resurfacing and tightening. These non-ablative skin rejuvenation are considered to be low risk ad short downtime techniques which can improve the structural integrity of the skin without causing and cutaneous damage.

Injectable skin rejuvenation and dermal fillers
Skin rejuvenation is intended to increase the biosynthesis capacity of cells in skin and allow for reconstruction of optimal physiological conditions to enhance the activity of the cells, hydration and synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Botulinum toxin
It should be clarified here that botulinum toxin has no effect on skin texture and cannot affect the skin aging process. But, the regular injections ca retard the visible aging process by managing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. The benefits of this antiaging treatment are transient and require repeated injections for long term effects.

By now you must have understood that despite the availability of many antiaging treatments you should choose the one which is safe, natural, effective and contributes to healthy aging. Sin rejuvenation thus plays a significant role in preventing the effects of aging, regeneration and delaying of skin aging.
