Reverse the effects of dry winter skin with TOSKANI HydraNutritive
With the arrival of Winter, we must pay special attention to our skin care. Cold, wind, heating, humidity and various environmental aggressions cause dryness and dehydration, especially in the face and hands, which are the parts of the body that we most expose during this season of the year.
The skin, the system that protects our body, is the first organ to notice drastic changes in temperature. In winter, the relative humidity of the air tends to drop and the environment becomes drier, causing the hydrolipidic film of the skin to alter. This film is a waterproof defense barrier against external aggressions and prevents transcutaneous water loss. This is when discomfort due to dryness begins to appear. When the skin is dry, the barrier is not able to cope with external factors correctly, which weakens it and makes it more fragile.
Excessive cold also favours vasoconstriction, which causes the capillaries of the skin to contract to retain heat and therefore decreasing the irrigation of the skin. This causes less nutrients and oxygen for the cells, therefore, dead cells accumulate giving our skin a dull and less youthful appearance. In addition, the skin feels tight and sometimes red due to dryness, since these dead cells do not come off so easily and prevent a natural nutrition of the epidermis.
What are the main symptoms of dry skin?
The feeling of tightness, itching or burning, redness, inflammation, roughness, flakiness and even cracks, are some of the most common symptoms of dry skin. In the most severe cases, these discomforts can interfere with people's daily lives and even negatively affect their quality of life. For this reason, it is essential to take extreme care of the skin when the cold arrives.
At this time of the year, the skin suffers from dehydration and malnutrition due to the change in weather. Therefore, your clients will need extra hydration and nutrition to help them regain the beauty of their skin.
TOSKANI HydraNutritive treatment step-by-step
Before explaining which treatment forms the best "face coat" for this winter, it is important to remember the difference between hydration and nutrition.
Hydration means restoring optimal water levels in the skin while nutrition is nourishing our skin, that is, regenerating the cells of the epidermis and strengthening the protective barrier to prevent dryness.
Our solution? The HydraNutritive treatment. A professional protocol that consists of 6 cabin sessions, followed by a home care routine to increase hydration and nutrition and thus recover the beauty and health of the skin.
Skin preparation: removing keratinised dead cells from the epidermis is essential if we want to achieve the effectiveness of subsequent treatments. Therefore, the first step of the treatment will consist of a physical or chemical exfoliation, depending on the condition of the skin. Physical peels use small grains to remove dead cells while chemical peels use acidic components to promote skin rejuvenation.
Dry skin can be extremely sensitive, as it is already "damaged", so depending on the patient's tolerance, we recommend Nutritive Scrub or Lactic Peel 30%.
Nutritive Scrub is an exfoliating and nourishing mask with regenerating ingredients to renew skin tissue, free it of dead cells and oxygenate it.
Lactic Peel 30% is a 30% lactic acid chemical peel. Lactic acid is one of the softest and most tolerant acids and works by promoting the release of keratinised cells. Lactic Peel 30% improves the texture of the skin, providing luminosity and improving its hydration, which translates into greater elasticity. It also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, improving the structure of the skin and preventing water loss.
Hydration phase: after exfoliating the skin, we will continue the treatment with transdermal therapy for 3 sessions in the cabin, with the aim of reinforcing skin hydration with Regenerating Cocktail and 1% Hyaluron.
Regenerating Cocktail is a regenerating and repairing mesotherapy solution whose active ingredients act synergistically to rebuild the epidermal tissue, providing the skin with elasticity, softness and smoothness.
Hyaluron 1% is formulated with hyaluronic acid; ingredient with a powerful moisturising and anti-aging effect, capable of retaining water in a percentage equivalent to thousands of times its molecular weight, providing volume and promoting epidermal hydration.
Nutrition phase: after the 3 hydration sessions, we will continue the treatment with 3 more sessions to nourish the skin. In this phase, we will combine Regenerating Cocktail with Polivitamin BCAE, a multivitamin mesotherapy solution to provide the skin with all the nutrients and vitamins it needs to continue fulfilling its protective function correctly.
Both in the hydration and nutrition phase, we recommend applying the products with the TKN MesojectGun device. A device that offers an innovative, painless and needle-free technique for the administration of mesotherapy actives with maximum efficiency.
TKN MesojectGun uses Pulse Booster technology, providing a homogeneous square wave pulse to ensure uniform administration of active ingredients into the skin. This square wave is emitted at a low frequency, penetrating the deepest layers and ensuring visible and long-lasting effects. The low voltage of this square wave also promotes rapid tissue recovery, thus avoiding patient discomfort after treatment.
Home care maintenance:to maximise the results of the cabin treatment, don't forget to recommend a daily routine to your patients that they can follow at home to keep their skin clean and protected
-Morning: apply half an ampoule of Anti-Aging + HA ampoules, an intensive care for daily use with hyaluronic acid, peptides and growth factors to provide immediate and long-lasting hydration. After the ampoule, we recommend applying Aquabalance Cream, a cream whose innovative formula keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles immediately.
-Night: apply half an ampoule of Lipo-Proteoglycans ampoules. They contain proteoglycans and liposomal vitamins to intensively nourish and prevent water loss. In addition, they stimulate the production of collagen, providing firming and regenerating properties. After the ampoule, apply Total Recovery Cream, a cream rich in peptides and emollients with a powerful renewing effect to improve the appearance of dry skin
