Antiaging Through Exercise

skin medica Antiaging Through Exercise

This article  in the New York Times demonstrates histological benefits of improvement of the inner layers of our skin which is composed of collagen and elastin through exercise. It cites a McMaster University study of mice to see if exercise would help in antiaging.

According to the article, these were the results:

The scientists biopsied skin samples from each volunteer and examined them microscopically. When compared strictly by age, the skin samples overall aligned with what would be expected. Older volunteers generally had thicker outer layers of skin and significantly thinner inner layers.

But those results shifted noticeably when the researchers further subdivided their samples by exercise habits. They found that after age 40, the men and women who exercised frequently had markedly thinner, healthier stratum corneums and thicker dermis layers in their skin. Their skin was much closer in composition to that of the 20- and 30-year-olds than to that of others of their age, even if they were past age 65.

 While it clearly does not demonstrate reversal of chronic sun damage and wrinkling from the South Florida environment, exercise is important to your overall skin health.

To reverse the signs of aging, we recommend our antiaging skincare program with prescription strength Tretinoin  and medical grade Skinceuticals Vitamin C  and our newest potent skin antioxidant Resveratrol.

We also are offering a new product line, Skin Medica. To learn more about this, you can contact our aesthetician, Daphne  and also about TNS growth factors and topical vitamin C  which also complement our antiaging program.
