Everyone gets wrinkles as they age, but those who get too much sun will get more wrinkles sooner. Wrinkles do not form until the skin loses its elasticity with age and sun damage. However, many patients that are suffering from wrinkles tend to get them from excessive exposure to the sun, not from the normal process of aging.

Did you know that sun-tanned skin is not healthy skin?   A tan is the skin’s attempts to protect itself from the sunlight’s ultra violate radiation rays, UVA and UVB. Daily sunscreen can help stop aging in its tracks, while protecting you from sunburn and keeping your skin supple and moisturized.

If you are not applying sunscreen of SPF 30 or more every morning then you should start.

The UVA and UVB rays that penetrate deep into the skin can break down collagen and elastin fibers which is essentially the scaffold that holds the skin together in young healthy skin. As collagen and elastin fibers break down skin becomes less firm and lines and wrinkles set in.

Here at Renue we have medical grade skin care regimens that can help keep you looking your best.

First we carry sunscreen by Elta MD to help protect you from the suns damaging rays. Elta MD UV Daily Sunscreen is a Broad Spectrum SPF 40 formula that protects against UVA aging and UVB burning rays. It also contains antioxidants and hyaluronic acid that help turn back the clock as well as being formulated with moisturizers to rehydrate mature skin. Coming in a tinted and un-tinted formula, we find that the tinted formula is great for darker skin tones who have struggled with finding a sunscreen that blends in to their skin tone.

Second we offer Accelafuze treatments that offer crystal free micro-dermabrasion to stimulate the body’s’ own cellular repair system to produce new skin cells, collagen and elastin. This hydrating facial exfoliates, and peptide infusion serums applied help to repair and produce new skin cells, collagen and elastin.

In addition we offer the VI Peel chemical peel which helps reverse the effects of sun damage, environmental factors and time, enhancing the skins natural beauty and luminosity. Patients enjoy healthier, beautiful skin in about one week!

As with any skin care product or treatment, it is best to do them in conjunction with other treatments. Here at Renue, we can customized a treatment plan to your skin care needs that deliver superior results to improve your skin.
