What causes Degradation in Skin Quality

What causes Degradation in Skin Quality

Our skin is the largest organ of the body; being on the exterior and protecting us from the outer environment means that it is constantly subjected to elements that speed up the aging process. However, it is not just external factors such as UV rays and pollutants that cause our skin to age but also intrinsic factors such as: genes and hormones.


These factors culminate in our skin becoming functionally and intrinsically aged.

Aging is a natural process and begins from the day we are born. There are certain things we can do to slow down aging; such as a healthy diet, exercise and staying out of the sun but unfortunately there is nothing we can do to completely avoid aging. Your skin is the canvas which shows your age: your genes and your lifestyle.


The Aging Process / How does our Skin Age

As we naturally age, the building blocks of our skin start breaking down. Elastin, Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid levels become depleted – that is why we need to look at ways to replace / stimulate these naturally occurring substances within our skin. Secondly, the overall skin function slows down, which causes phenotypic changes in the cutaneous cells and cellular renewal slows down.


An aged epidermis is far less capable at effective desquamation, has less active sebaceous glands and displays dilated pores. There are lower natural moisturizing factors (such as Hyaluronic Acid) and the skin will show pigmentation disorders.

The dermo-epidermal junction becomes “flatter” therefore leading to less metabolic exchanges between the dermis and the epidermis, including a decreased nutritional supply.


In the dermis there will be a decrease in the number of basal cells (the cells that produce new cells), they will also have weaker connective tissues, and the Collagen fibres will be disorientated and disassociated. In other words, the foundation of the skin will be breaking down.


The Aged Skin

As the body starts producing less and less Collagen and Elastin, fine lines turn into wrinkles, because the foundations of our skin are being broken down and therefore the actual structure of the skin is giving way.

Skin Conditions as we Age

- Sun Spots: darkened and sometimes even raised areas on the skin caused by prolonged sun-exposure
- Fine Lines, wrinkles and even folds
- Dry Skin and roughness: skin becomes dry, rough to the touch and can even show flakiness
- Excess Sebum: skin can produce an excess of sebum which can lead to break outs
- Adult Acne: acne caused from the irregular functioning on the skin and / or imbalance of hormones. To learn more about the different grades of Acne, click here.


The above skin conditions are typical of an aging skin. Fortunately, there are various ways in which we can address the aging process and help target the signs of skin aging.


There are key active ingredients that are beneficial to look out for in your skincare range, these include:

Anti-Aging Skincare



Cosmeceutical skincare is not only important for aesthetic reasons, but also for general skin health. It is essential to take care of your skin in order to prevent sun damage, which could otherwise lead to skin cancer. It is often said that the number one skincare product is sun protection, and this is certainly the case. A broad spectrum, chemical and physical sunscreen can dampen both UVA (skin damaging) and UVB (cancer causing) rays.


Proven skincare used in conjunction with Chemical Peels will not only stimulate your skin’s production of Collagen and Elastin, but it will also facilitate healthy functioning of skin. Chemical Peels improve the glow, texture and color of the skin. They homogenize the skin by hydrating, creating firmness and elasticity.

How does the Cosmo Forte target Aging and the Mechanisms of Aging

Dermaceutic Cosmo Forte is a medium to deep chemical peel system. It has been scientifically formulated to target the appearance of wrinkles, texture irregularities, smokers’ complexion and pigment disorders.


Proven actions on the skin:
- Stimulates Collagen and Elastin production
- Improves the skin texture and smoothness
- Reduces the appearance of acne and pigment spots
- Reduce the signs of skin aging
- Promote visibly younger-looking skin


Cosmo Forte Actives

Phenol revolutionizes the skin by modifying the permeability and physical properties of the cell membrane and causes necrosis of the epidermal cells. It reduces the pain induced by TCA and coagulates the cells faster and deeper compared to TCA. Phenol regenerates dermal architecture deeply.


TCA assists in rebuilding the skin. TCA coagulates the skin proteins and accelerates the skin renewal. It also allows deeper and faster penetration of the Phenol and provides better results with a lower Phenol concentration.


Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid is an AHA acid that helps renovate the skin, it works on the stratum corneum and provides keratolytic action to increase the penetration of other chemical substances and improve peel results.


These three acids work in optimal synergy to complement each other by:
• Optimizing the powerful action of the peel solutions
• Increasing the penetration of each chemical substance
• Minimizing the risks of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
• Reducing the pain linked with TCA application


Cosmo Peel Forte is an ideal choice to target the signs of skin aging because it works into the deep layers of the skin to rebuild the skin from within. You can achieve results from as little as one treatment, where you will see improvement in your skin texture, firmness, color and hydration.


It is a controlled and painless application with a superior formulation of Phenol, TCA and Glycolic Acid for optimal efficacy. Used in conjunction with the Dermaceutic homecare skincare range, it will leave your skin visibly improved and younger looking.
