Transcript

  • 1. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Advanced Acupuncture, Inc. Wellness Class, 2009
  • 2. Skin Anatomy
    • 3 layers:
    • Epidermis
    • Dermis
        • Elastin
        • Collagen
    • Subcutaneous
    • tissue
  • 3. How does the skin keep healthy ?
    • The body breaks down the old skin with enzymes:
    • Metalloproteinase
    • ( MMP’s) chop up the fibers that form collagen.
    • Connective tissue makes up around 80% of normal skin.
  • 4. What causes wrinkles ?
    • Over the time, the dermis loses both collagen and elastin.
    • Skin gets thinner and has trouble getting enough moisture to the epidermis,
    • The fat in the subcutaneous layer that gives skin a plump appearance begins to disappear.
    • The epidermis starts to sag and wrinkles formed.
  • 5. The Skin Aging Process (1)
    • The sun’s rays- solar elastosis
    • Smoking-upsets the body’s mechanism for renewing skin: collagen production is reduced >40 %
    • Aging-skin cells divide more slowly, the dermis starts to get thin and reduces the elasticity and vibrancy of skin. Wrinkles and sagging appear.
  • 6. The Skin Aging Process (2)
    • 4. Radicals - free radicals can lead to wrinkles and skin discoloration
    • 5. Heavy exercise – for those who do not use antioxidant protection
    • 6. Botox develops new wrinkles - unconsciously recreating facial expression in the area where the facial muscles have been paralyzed can cause other nearby muscles to compensate creating new wrinkles. -Dr.Baker, Weil Cornell Medical College
  • 7. Antioxidants & free radicals
    • Molecules that ride the blood stream, gobbling up molecules of unstable oxygen called free radicals
    • They are good at killing bacteria, and controlling the tone of the smooth muscles, which regulate the blood vessels and internal organs.
    • When hordes of them run wild, unchecked free radicals will harm skin tissue, fostering premature signs of aging.
  • 8. Skin damage by free radicals
    • Oxidation caused by free radicals
    • Radicals are the main culprits in tissue damage, such as wrinkles, discoloration and aging.
    • Characterized by thinning of the skin, yellowing, mottling leathery dryness.
    • Antioxidants: Aloe Vera and grape seed can combat free radials.
  • 9. Vitamin C vs. Wrinkles
