Infusing the skin with Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is the most prevalent antioxidant in the human skin and it protects the facial skin from a wide variety of extrinsic factors. The vitamin can be found in large concentrations in the dermal and epidermal facial skin layers. Unfortunately, with age, the amount of Vitamin C and other antioxidants significantly decreases, and aged skin has approximately 70% less antioxidant concentrations compared to younger skin.
As the concentrations decrease, the facial skin becomes more vulnerable to harmful extrinsic factors such as pollution, smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol. These factors cause ‘oxidative stress’ which damage and age the facial skin.
During the NowMi Basic treatment, the skin is infused with virtually pure vitamin C. Once the skin has replenished its vitamin C supply, it is able to protect itself from the extrinsic factors. It is able to clear way the free-radicals caused by the extrinsic factors and also repair skin damage. As a result, the skin becomes healthier and its overall texture significantly improves.
Replenishes the skin’s vitamin E supply:
In addition to the vitamin C, the NowMi treatment infuses the skin with vitamin E. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cell membranes from oxidative stress and reinforces the collagen network. Importantly, research has shown that by combining vitamin C with vitamin E, the skin’s protection level quadruples.
