Unfortunately, there is no panacea to stop skin aging, but slowing down the skin aging process is possible! And let us at Mo Esthetics have exactly the right expertise, treatments and products for this!

From the age of 20, our skin starts to age on average. Collagen and Elastin are produced to a lesser extent in the skin, resulting in signs of aging. Think of sagging skin, fine lines and pigmentation spots. As we age, our cell division slows down. Older skin takes longer to replace a cell on the skin's surface than young skin. 

What exactly happens in the skin aging process?

The epidermis is getting thinner. In addition, the corium skin (dermis) changes. There is a reduction in the number of blood vessels in the skin, a reduction in connective tissue (collagen) and elastin fibers and a reduction in the number of sebaceous glands and a decrease in the function of the sebaceous glands.

Due to the reduction of elastin fibers, the skin loses its elasticity. The aging skin then develops wrinkles. The reduction and decrease in the function of the sebaceous glands causes dry skin, which ultimately results in wrinkles and lines.

What can you do yourself to slow down the aging process?

There are a number of (well-known) things you can do yourself to slow down the aging process. For example, it is important not to expose your skin unprotected to UV radiation. Make sure you always use a product with SPF, even in winter! In addition, smoking is also a culprit. In addition to the dangers of cancer, smoking and sunlight also cause faster skin aging. UV radiation in sunlight damages the connective tissue and the elastin fibers. It is also important to drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day and to eat a healthy diet (vegetables provide antioxidants).

What can we do for you

As discussed above, there are a number of processes that show signs of aging. We look at what your skin needs most. For one this is a skin-improving peeling in which we give the skin a boost and stimulate the cell renewal process, for the other this is connective tissue massage to combat the slackening of the skin.

Our peels contain natural acids that remove the top skin layer so that the young skin cells appear. With a peeling we can drastically reduce wrinkles, pigmentation spots, sun damage and scars. We are happy to advise you on which peeling is suitable for your skin. 

We work with connective tissue massages to prevent sagging of the skin. Both mechanically and manually. Monique is a star in the field of connective tissue massages. The connective tissue has many special functions that contribute to the suppleness of our skin. Hyaluronic acid is produced in the connective tissue. The connective tissue also contains blood vessels so that waste products can be removed via the lymphatic system. Finally, it contains collagen, elastic and reticular fibers, which provide elasticity, volume and firmness. 

The result of a good connective tissue massage? 

  • Removal of subcutaneous adhesions
  • Visible reduction in cellulite
  • Afbraak van vetafzettingen
  • Improvement of the skin condition
  • Less tired legs
  • Firming of the skin

During an intake, we are happy to advise you whether manual or mechanical connective tissue massage best suits your skin needs.
