Are You Struggling with Glycated Skin?

Are You Struggling with Glycated Skin?

You might be wondering, what is glycated skin?

Glycation is when the skin has formed an almost crackled-glass appearance. This happens when collagen mixes with a sugar molecule and forms a very stubborn, slow to react, defiant layer of tough skin. Years of sun damage, unhealthy diet, smoking, and sometimes genetics can lead to glycated skin.

The bad news is it is very stubborn and you’re likely one of the people who’ve tried everything and found that nothing appears to work to make it soften or improve in any significant way. I know of women who’ve even had plastic surgery and it did very little to soften this crinkled tough skin.

The good news is in the past few years advances in technology are allowing estheticians some success when working on this kind of skin – and with results! These results don’t happen overnight so this is for the committed person willing to take the time required for the number of treatments necessary. The Time Master Pro will help over time (as in several months of continued use) to soften the skin, but the procedure I’ve found to be the most effective is a series of Fibroblast Treatments, followed by the consistent use of Sculplla and NeoGenesis products to further support the production of collagen, elastin and renew skin.

What is Fibroblast? Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a non-laser treatment using a device to deliver energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin. This process improves facial lines and wrinkles and skin pigmentation associated with sun damage and aging. This is a professional modality requiring skill and professional training. For someone untrained to attempt this could result in unwanted results. Always ensure your esthetician is professionally trained. Please note, the device does not come into contact with your skin when done properly. Yet, the arc that touches the skin is slightly painful, requiring the use of a numbing agent.

I like the Korean made Plaxel device because it is a safe, non-laser technology with the tiniest probes on the market, causing less inflammation while rejuvenating the skin safely. Other estheticians like the Plamere. My mentor in Fibroblast is Isabel Brown. She trains in Fibroblast and has an Avatar Therapy unique to her training. You can learn more about Isabel at https://isaskincare.co 

Products that will support the healing and boost collagen are NeoGenesis Recovery, NeoGenesis Booster, and Sculplla Products. I know the combination of fibroblast and the high-performance products I use and sell is why my skin looks great!

If you’re struggling with Glycated skin, start using high-performance products and search out an Esthetician providing this service.

The best advice I can give you is BE PATIENT. Your skin didn’t get in damaged condition overnight and it won’t heal overnight. Give your hard work time to work.
