LASER ALTERNATIVES!! Part ONE

Written by Danné Montegue-King on June 10th, 2014.      0 comments

The modern skin specialist in the medical and aesthetics field are constantly being lead to believe by manufacturers that “peeling” of the skin is the top of the line when it comes to removing wrinkles, hyper pigmentation or superficial scars.  The real truth is; the removal of dead and dying skin cells is only step one in effective skin revision.  New skin cells are partially controlled by desmesomes. The proliferation of new skin cells to the surface of the skin has a definite pattern or rhythm. When the skin is attacked too aggressively with high potency acids, lasers or high velocity microdermabrasion devices, the desmesomes release new skin cells which rush to the surface in defence of the skin.  This occurs much faster than their normal rhythm. The result is usually more of a controlled scar instead of a normal skin revision.

Fortunately there is a removal system that also rebuilds at the same time and works very well with the new, “Enzymatic Lifts” currently stunning the beauty therapy world.

REMOVAL SYSTEMS:

Although I have researched many alternative removal systems around the world, there is a procedure that closely resembles the effects of the CO2 laser but without the temporary contraindications and potential hypo-pigmentation that often accompanies laser surgery. I call this technique “Liquid Laser” and find it extremely effective as both a Removal and Rebuilding treatment due to its high vitamin A content.
 
Vitamin A has long been used as a “cell renewal” vitamin both internally and topically, especially in the case of acne clients. Over the years, particularly in the 1980's, RETINOIDS, derivatives of vitamin A, were used widely as “peeling” agents. The popularity of the drug Retin-A swept across America like a storm leaving a lot of skin damage in its path due to the indiscriminate use of the drug by persons who did not respond well to its principle ingredient, tretinoin.
 
Retinoids however, come in various strengths and each has a slightly different effect in the skin. Tretinoin is the strongest, hence its drug status in the USA. But strong does not always mean the most effective. Other combinations of retinoids, when properly formulated can gently remove dead skin cells without contraindications and provide energy that helps the DNA of the cells keep the cell alive much longer.  Certain retinoids mixed with combinations of vitamin C stimulate fresh, new collagen fibers in the skin that can tighten and firm aging skin progressively.
 
The retinoid family consists of Tretinoin, Retinyl, Retinal, Retinoic Acid, and Retinol. There are other combinations, but these are the major ones.  If combined with Beta Carotene, Retinyl Palmitate, small amounts of Resorcinol and Potassium Sorbate, Retinol becomes a non-invasive but near miraculous removal tool. Further research has shown that if the above combinations are blended into a transdermal lotion (a water soluble vegetable lipid base) the entire formula will store in the voids of the skin after daily application for hours, gently detaching the dead and dying cells from the underlying epidermis while depositing the regenerative powers of vitamin A into the newer, living cells.  This duel action type of treatment is mainly performed at home by the client after an initial clinic treatment and followed by a final visit to the clinic for what I call the ‘lift off treatment’.

The ART OF CONVERSION

A new approach to making sure the receptor specific openings that line the cell wall membrane do not become overloaded and toxic (Vitamin A can become toxic in higher concentrations) is becoming popular in the beauty therapy field.

Conversion simply means combining two or more ingredients together that, when applied topically to skin, CONVERT to another ingredient or action WITHIN the skin, using the skin’s own enzymatic processes to accomplish this. Beta Carotene is non-toxic to skin cells in any concentration, but does not become Vitamin A until it is INSIDE the skin (or your body). Once  the skin’s own enzyme processes convert it to Vitamin A, it deposits JUST enough into the cell wall membrane to be beneficial to the life of the cell and then on its way OUT of the epidermis  exfoliates dead cells—sort of a “remove and  rebuild” action!
