I want to look younger!!! What do I need?  Where do I start?  These are common questions when it comes to esthetic treatments.  We are all looking for the fountain of youth, but there are so many different types of products, treatments and procedures available these days that it can become overwhelming and confusing.  While you might already know about Botox, facials, peels and maybe even fillers and lasers, really the best place to start is understanding how your skin works and starting with something simple … like cleansers and other effective skin care products.


 Skin is the largest organ of the body and consists of three layers:  the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer.

The epidermis – or the paper-thin outer layer of the skin – consists of dead cells that are always flaking off and then replaced by new cells that rise to the surface of the epidermis.  After a period of time, those cells flake off and are replaced by new cells, and so the cycle goes.  This cycle of skin renewal slows as we age.  When we are teenagers, the cycle can be as short as 14-21 days BUT in our 40’s it slows to 45-60 days, AND over 50, the cycle can take as long as 60-90 days!  Other factors like hormones or years of excessive sun exposure can lengthen the cycle regardless of your age.  As the cell turnover slows down, those dead cells accumulate on the surface of the skin and that is when you start seeing sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, deep folds and, believe it or not, even acne!

Your journey begins by trying to shorten the cell turnover to 28-days or faster.  When that is achieved, those dead cells will be gone quicker and the newer cells will help make your skin feel softer, look more luminous and diminish those lines and skin imperfections.  So, how do we make that happen.


At BioBalance Skin, we carry SkinCeuticals, DefenAge and the BioBalance line just to name a few.  These medical-grade products will help accelerate the cell turnover which will start you on your way to a more youthful appearance AND will also EXPEDITE THE RESULTS (and make results last longer) in the next part of your skin rejuvenation journey – treatments and procedures.
