It’s no exaggeration to say that Vitamin A is essential to life. It’s little wonder, then, that it’s proven itself invaluable in fighting the ageing process. In our latest blog, Skin Matrix is demonstrating how both your aesthetic clinic and your patient’s skin health can go from strength to strength with this nourishing vitamin.
Responsible for growth and health, the regular use of Encapsulated Retinol (to use its scientific name) leads to the stimulation of fibroblast cells. These cells regulate the production of collagen and elastin, crucial proteins in maintaining supple, strong skin and lessening the effects of the ageing process. What’s more, it’s also linked to normalising cell differentiation, sebum production and pigmentation, not to mention playing a role in regulating gene transcription… just when you thought you’d had a busy day at the office.
Vitamin A’s job list goes on. For one, the epidermis is especially dependent upon Retinol. How so, you ask? The basal layer must continually generate new cells which consequently keratinize to become the skin’s protective barrier to the outside world. Here’s where Vitamin A steps in. The substance plays a vital role in promoting RNA synthesis, the process responsible for new cell production, ensuring that the barrier can remain healthy and effective.
In this way, when applied topically to the epidermis, Vitamin A helps to restore and revitalise damaged, rough or dry skin. Better yet, thanks to triggering cell turnover, Vitamin A is also considered the single most effective treatment for ageing or UV damaged skin.
Quick on the Uptake
In our Aspect Dr A Serum, the Retinol is encapsulated in lipids. This allows the substance to be introduced to the cell nucleus far faster than in its non-encapsulated form. The good news doesn’t end there: this lipid encapsulation also slows the rate of oxidation meaning that Vitamin A permeates through the epidermis to treat the cells beneath.
From treating skin laxity and sun damage to fine lines and wrinkles, our Aspect Dr A Serum uses Encapsulated Retinol’s skin-strengthening qualities so your clients can regain youthful skin.
