As we get older, we get bombarded with many skin issues such as: rougher skin, bumps, tags and wrinkles. Our skin becomes looser as our collagen and elastin deplete and deflate. Our skin is more fragile and thin – along with being extremely dry.
We have two types of lines on our face.
Dynamic wrinkles which are caused from repeated facial movements such as squinting, smiling and talking. You will see those lines around the mouth, across the forehead, between the eyebrows (or those “11’s”) and of course – crow’s feet.
The second type of wrinkle is a static wrinkle. This is when there is a natural loss of tissue volume, collagen and elastin. As we age our collagen production levels slow and existing collagen starts to break down. These types of lines are most common between the nose or mouth and cheeks. Nasolabial folds are also very common.
So what can we do to improve these lines? There are many things, and you will most likely need to combine a few if your lines are treading into the deeper category. Lasers, injections, chemical peels and topical treatments are your options. We can help you with the last two right here at Platinum!
Introducing our Derma Snap 8LM Cream
What is it?
Derma Snap 8Lm is a super-hydrating, smooth emollient white cream. It is excellent for those with normal – dry and extra dry types.
It has two main jobs.
1. To help smooth expression lines and reduce wrinkles by slowing muscle contractions in the skin and
2. To deeply hydrate parched skin for a glowing, dewy surface.
We have several key ingredients in this product.
One clinical study showed that matrixyl was as effective as retinol in repairing sun-damaged skin. In another study, matrixyl visibly decreased the amount of wrinkles in as little as 2 weeks.
Syn-Coll – is a deeply penetrating bio-active ingredient to repair and lessen wrinkles. It does this by stimulating collagen production and healing in the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is a glycosaminoglycan and is often referred to as the “key to the fountain of youth”. This is because it is so plentiful in small children and gives them their moist, plump soft skin. As we age it sharply decreases so our skin dries and our joints ache. By applying Hyaluronic acid to the surface of your skin you can dramatically increase its moisture content. The hyaluronic molecule can actually hold 1000 x its own weight in water! This is a mandatory ingredient for aging skin, and you should be taking a daily supplement as well.
Other moisturizers are: Butylene Glycol, Olive Squalane, Intense Moisture Complex, Glycerine and Emu oil.
*if you are a Vegan, then this will not be the product for you. Please see our GABA Elite instead.
This is the perfect product to add into your regimen if you are looking to smooth fine lines, deeply hydrate and deal with antiaging in general.
How do I use it?
1. You’ll want to apply our Derma Snap 8LM 1-2x per day onto freshly cleansed skin. *Peptides work best with a 2x per day application.
2. If you are using other serums, apply them first and then apply your Derma Snap on top of that. 1-2 pumps is plenty to cover your entire face and neck area. Finish with an SPF if you are heading out for the day.
What else can I use with this?
There are many other products that can be used in conjunction with our Derma Snap 8LM to help with collagen regeneration, deep hydration and antiaging in general:
Any of our Dr. Platinum Potions, such as Syn-TC, Matrixyl Synthe’6, Stem Cells, Epidermal Growth Factor can be applied as a first layer with Derma Snap on TOP.
High Octane Vitamin C can be applied in the morning with Derma Snap on TOP.
Retinol Molecular Serum can be applied each evening on TOP of Derma Snap.
Take 2 of our ReGen supplements every morning to get your hyaluronic acid and several other skin loving vitamins.
Chemical peels such as TCA are the perfect compliment. TCA can help to stimulate collagen, elastin and even glycosaminoglycans in the skin. Everything you need to tighten, brighten and tone the skin. e
