Aging Smart

Wrinkles, altered pigmentation, loss of skin tone…we all associate these changes with skin aging.  Age-related skin changes are the result of genetically-programmed changes and environmental wear and tear on the skin.  While both influence the skin’s structure and function, environmental factors cause more pronounced changes.  Estimates state that 80-99% of what we see on our skin as adults is the result of exposure to daylight, which is referred to as photoaging.  Manifestations of photoaging include an increase in wrinkle formation, a loss of tension and elasticity, degeneration of the vascular supply and skin thickness, a reduction in the water-binding properties of the skin, dilated capillaries, hyperpigmentation and other skin discoloration.  Combating these conditions require more than just  washing your face.  To repair and rejuvenate the skin a regimen consisting of the proper toners, treatments and moisturizers are advised.  Dermalogica’s Age Smart line has all of the tools that you will need to stop damage in its tracks and to prevent future damage from appearing.  Call and set up an appointment with one of our professionally trained skin therapists to find that right products for you!
