Collagen can help contribute to beautiful, youthful skin because of the elasticity it provides for the skin. But as people age, collagen production and elasticity decreases, while gravity continues to cause sagging skin.
Some wrinkles are a result of repetitive facial expression, such as frowning and squinting eyes. Because skin loses elasticity, the grooves formed with these facial expressions become permanent.
Collagen is a protein which is mainly found in the dermis, or the middle layer of the skin. It provides the skin with strength, texture, and resilience. Lysine, proline, hydroxylysine, and hydroxyproline are all amino acids which are found in collagen.
Collagen is composed of a mesh of fiber which deteriorates over time. When the collagen deteriorates, fibroblast cells can produce collagen.
Around age 40, collagen deteriorates faster than it can be produced.
Free radicals in the body, caused by factors like metabolism, the sun, and cigarettes, slow down collagen production. This is one of the reasons why people who smoke and tan develop wrinkles earlier in life than others.
Dr. Perricone has designed Cold Plasma cream after 5 years of research to help skin restore elasticity and help correct 9 other common signs of aging. Cold plasma is formulated with advanced neuropeptide technology, DMAE, and DHA.
Ingredient DMAE can help lift, tone, and contour skin’s appearance. Cold Plasma can be used on any skin type, every morning and evening, for younger looking skin.
Cold Plasma corrects a number of skin problems such as:
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of firmness, smoothness, and radiance
When collagen production slows, loss of elasticity is not a necessary consequence with the right skin care regimen.
