The outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum (SC), plays a vital role in protecting and maintaining our skin and body. This top layer of the epidermis is a water-proof barrier designed to defend against dehydration, toxins, and bacteria as well as prevent water loss and esthetic product penetration. All these functions are essential to our overall wellness, but they also create an obstacle for the topical application and absorption of skincare products and nutrients. The stratum corneum is so effective that only 2-10% of skincare formulas applied are absorbed. The horny layer’s role as a water-proof barrier is crucial, thankfully nanotechnology with Rezenerate provides means of increasing absorption significantly without compromising the stratum corneum.
Of course, nanotechnology is conducted on a small scale, but how small? Picture a millimeter, which is about the thickness of a credit card. Now consider that there are 1 million nanometers (nm) in a millimeter! The Rezenerate NanoFacial’s True Blue Tip is comprised of homogeneous nanopyramids between 2 and 20 nm in size. These mono crystalline silicone pyramids connect with the skin as the tip oscillates during treatment creating invisible channels in the stratum corneum that last about 15-20 minutes. While present, the channels gently disrupt the waterproof barrier and throughout that time, the SC behaves like a sponge taking in the applied skincare and serums and increasing product absorption to 40-50%! By the end of the treatment not only is the barrier restored but the skin has been infused with beneficial nutrients and looks hydrated and plump with a beautiful glow.
The Rezenerate NanoFacial’s main focus is increasing product absorption, but the treatment also provides a vibratory massage, helps accelerate exfoliation, supports the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), and helps reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
During the process of creating nanochannels in the stratum corneum the skin is also experiencing a vibratory massage from the device. The subtle vibration helps to relieve any facial tension and increases circulation and blood flow. Elevated blood flow assists with nutrient delivery and contributes to the amazing post facial glow. This phase of the treatment also enhances natural cell desquamation and increases cell turnover.
Additionally, the infusion of hyaluronic acid, the slip agent, in combination with your chosen serums helps maintain the water content of the stratum corneum. Water is necessary in the SC for proper barrier function and cell desquamation and HA molecules are able to hold 1000 times their weight in water. The skin’s NMF contains hyaluronic acid and is responsible for binding water molecules to prevent TEWL. As we age our NMF decreases and transepidermal water loss rises. Increasing absorption of hyaluronic acid by to a rate of 40-50% helps the skin retain moisture supporting the natural moisturizing factors and helping to reduce evaporation.
Increase the potential of your chosen skincare line’s products by incorporating Rezenerate into your treatments and support barrier health while delivering nutrients at 40-50%.
