RICHMOND ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS
Aging is a complex process and affects not only the skin, but also underlying structures including fat, muscle, and bone. While we are not able to affect the bone with anti-aging treatments, we can work with a three-dimensional treatment plan to address the skin, fat, and muscle for anti-aging.
From understanding how the aging process works, our experts at 67 Degrees Cosmetic Clinic are able to devise a comprehensive treatment plan for anti-aging, by addressing the skin at every level, from the inside out.
As we age, there are many changes within the skin on superficial, mid, and deepest layers of the tissue. There are two primary factors involved with aging skin: intrinsic (internal) and extrinsic (external) factors. Internal factors of aging are primarily based on our genetics, however external factors including climate, pollution, lifestyle, and stress are all controllable in anti-aging treatments.
RICHMOND ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS
While we cannot stop the process of aging, we can age gracefully and with minimal signs! Some of the changes in aging skin include:
- Cell turnover rate slows down. In our youth, our skin cells are renewing and replacing themselves in 30 days or less which is what keeps the skin looking bright and fresh. By slowing down the rate that the skin cells turnover, it results in a buildup of dead cells and dull, rough looking skin.
- Melanin production decreases. Our overall production of melanin slows down, which means there’s a loss of healthy, even skin tone and complexion, and an increase in the formation of uneven pigmentation like sunspots and blotchy skin.
- Dermal collagen decreases. Our collagen begins to slow down production as early as 25 years old, but with time the collagen itself begins to breakdown. This can lead to the dermal layer of skin becoming thin and moisture loss resulting in a lack of glow.
- Decrease of hair follicles and sebaceous glands. While to those with oily skin a decrease in sebaceous (oil) glands may sound like a dream, it actually means that the skin barrier function becomes hindered, which can lead to increased skin sensitivity, redness and sun damage.
Anti-aging treatments at 67 Degrees Cosmetic Clinic are so unique because we take a comprehensive approach. There is not ‘one’ treatment for anti-aging, but rather a multitude which can be expertly paired by our licensed specialists to deliver you exceptional results.
Nordlys Frax or CO2RE fractional resurfacing lasers work on all three layers of the skin by creating channels of micro-injuries to stimulate new collagen and elastin to form.
PicoWay or Ellipse IPL for dark spots and uneven pigment. These devices use light and heat energy to target areas of uneven pigment and reacts with the melanin, causing it to breakdown and be replaced by healthy, even complexion.
Vbeam for redness or facial veins and capillaries. As we age the walls of our capillaries become weakened and stretched, which can cause them to rise to the surface and become visible.
IV Therapy is a revolutionary way of anti-aging. IV Therapy with the Myers’ Cocktail is an intravenous vitamin infusion therapy which uses a combination of different essential vitamins and minerals to help with bodily functions. It is an effective therapy for anti-aging, chronic fatigue and many other purposes.
The “cocktail” includes a combination of magnesium, B-vitamins, calcium, and vitamin C delivered through a slow IV push to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not normally obtainable through oral administration and absorbed by the body.
