The Bio-active Principles in the “Ageless Treatment” are Total Extract of Centella asiatica (TECA), Bulbine frutescens Leaf Extract and Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5). The Centella asiatica is particularly measured as asiaticoside, although all the Asiatic acid components have the same bio-activity.
The main aim of this treatment is to assist in the restoration of the deeper reticular dermis’s criss-crossing of connective tissue (collagen and elastin). The asiaticoside stimulates the synthesis of collagen type I (the short chain collagen) and proliferation of fibroblasts, the cells that manufacture these proteins. A skin that has a collapsed matrix of collagen and elastin appears aged, wrinkled, stretched and thin. In contrast to this, a skin with a well balanced matrix of collagen and elastin, appears youthful, firm, elastic and thicker.
A secondary effect of this treatment is to assist your clinician (as part of a more extensive treatment) to treat age spots and sunspots. The underlying mechanism for this is the stimulation of apoptosis (the helping on of the natural death cycle of old cells)
Follow the “Good Night” routine and apply after cleansing and toning. If you experience unusual dryness, apply the Restion Night Nourisher, or Restion Dermal Repair over the top. DO NOT apply as a day treatment.
Once you see the desired effects of the treatment, you can change from every night, to only 3 treatments per week. It is preferable to do the 3 treatments in succession, e.g. Fridays to Sundays.
