Anti-Aging – Shelley Cavezza, PhD

Getting older is a fact of life.

Looking and feeling old is now optional!

Our Skin

We often forget that our skin is an organ, it’s alive, and it’s not just any organ — but the largest organ of our bodies. 

It also contains lots of ‘mini-organs’ such as sweat glands, hair follicles, and a variety of cells that are responsible for waterproofing our skin to act as a barrier for incoming toxins, infections and radiation from the sun. 

Our skin is a complex system that defends and protects our bodies from damage. 

Disruptions or damage to our skin, much like our bodies, will cause cells to deteriorate — unless we take steps to give our skin what it needs.

Environmental factors such as oxidative stress, UV radiation and pollution cause DNA damage that speeds up cellular ageing. 

If we don’t protect our DNA, our skin ages faster, fine lines and wrinkles appear and our skin becomes saggy and dull. 

Many of the visible signs of ageing, such as the appearance of wrinkles, are related to the collapse of collagen and other proteins present in skin cells. 

Collagen is the major protein in our skin and connective tissues. It has great tensile strength, and is responsible for skin elasticity. When collagen breaks down – we get wrinkles. 

Why Does Skin Age?

Reversing Visible Signs of Ageing

We need to tell our skin to start making collagen fibers again. 

And this is where gene science comes in. 

Our genes are the source of our skin’s youthful appearance. 

Reactivating our genes and stimulating the production of collagen and other proteins helps prevent and reverse premature ageing.

The Latest Development in
Anti-Ageing Skin Science

Skin rejuvenation technology has come a long way. 

I personally have had fantastic results with the neo plus® range of anti-ageing skin care. 

These are medical grade, highly potent products formulated specifically to reinvigorate mature skin, by waking up the genes that produce collagen.
