Product Spotlight: Viktoria DeAnn

Are you looking for products whose efficacy only increases over time? Incorporating peptides into your routine is the cutting edge of skincare.

We know that if you want to really change the skin, you have to be able to get down to where the skin production begins, and that's the dermis. Moisturizers are important for maintaining the outer layers of skin and helping with the appearance of the outer layer but they can't actually treat the living layers of skin. Working with the epidermis and the dermis (deeper layers of the skin) allows for an internal reestablishment of the healthy cell cycle. As these supporting layers of the skin peak towards their natural operating function, the effects can be seen in the outer layers.

As skin ages, it loses the message to replenish itself at the proper rate. Dead cells on the surface (stratum corneum) accumulate and become thicker, reducing moisture, nourishment, and protection from within and producing rough and unhealthy skin. This is why it's important to exfoliate more as we age. The ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun increase pigmentation and damage to skin cells, resulting in age spots and freckles. Collagen and elastin, which is the structure that holds the skin together, starts to break down causing it to lose its firmness and resilience.

Peptides allow the skin’s cellular function and skin renewal cycle to become optimized and renewed. These renewed skin cells make their way from the dermis up to the epidermis, smoothing the skin's surface. Renewal of the stratum corneum also helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation and freckles, while healthy collagen and elastin promote firm, youthful skin.

I will be incorporating these amazing peptides into all of my facials, but the best results are obtained by continuing with homecare. The beauty of peptides is that you can start with just one or if you want more dramatic results you can layer as many as you like. Retail products will be available in the studio only, not online. Look for them the next time you come in. This lift kit has everything you need to get started and includes pepti-lift, pepti-tone, eye serum, and rejuvenator. Purchased separately the cost of these products would be $230, but purchased as a kit the cost is just $190.

Remember to ask for a sample kit when you're in for your next appointment!
