Skin ageing is a complex biological process determined by intrinsic and extrinsic factors. While intrinsic or chronological ageing is an inevitable process, photo-ageing involves the premature ageing of skin and is caused by cumulative exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
All the factors combine to cause alterations in skin structure, function, and appearance. With age, the skin’s natural rejuvenation processes slow down considerably, and the skin becomes thinner, drier, wrinkled and less elastic.
As we age, cell turnover drastically slows down, causing mottled pigmentation and dark spots to appear. At a dermal level, there is a visible reduction in fibroblast activity, which reduces the production of the main components of connective tissue (collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans). This leads to the skin becoming saggy, slack and fragile.
md:ceuticals´ multifunctional products activate cellular mechanisms to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin, dramatically reducing wrinkles, refining skin texture and lightening skin tone. They enhance cell turnover, regulates sebum production and stimulates fibroblast activity, improving skin texture and structure and providing a lifting effect.
With a powerful mechanism specifically designed to act on the origins of skin ageing, they effectively neutralises free radicals, restoring skin brightness and protecting the skin from external damage.
