Do you suffer from dry, flaky skin, Acne, Rosacea, Dermatitis, psoriasis, or some other skin condition?
Does it simply not have the glow it once did?
If so, you may not be giving the largest organ in your body the nutritional support it needs to function at its peak.
This IV was formulated to provide the key ingredients in the formation of skin’s most important components: collagen and elastin. It includes amino acids and minerals and even powerful antioxidants. These nutrients are important in building new skin, protecting the skin you already have, and mitigating the oxidative and inflammatory damage that is keeping your skin from the healthy, beautiful glow you desire.
While this IV alone can be an effective treatment for your skin, optimal results are obtained when you combine it with dietary changes (such as 6 weeks on an organic Paleo Diet for example), oral supplementation, and stress modification. We can guide you on these interventions in our clinic.
Beautiful skin starts with an understanding of how healthy skin is made. So let’s take a look at some of the key biochemical reactions that govern the creation and maintenance of healthy skin.
Collagen and Elastin Synthesis
Elastin is a relatively small part of the dermis of the skin (the thick layer of tissue below the epidermis). As its name suggests, it is an elastic protein that is integral in the skin’s ability to stretch and return to its original shape and position. Elastin along with microfibrils such as fibrillin builds extensively cross-linked elastic fibers throughout your skin tissue. Both of these molecules,elastin and fribrillin—are made of simple amino acids such as glycine, valine, alanine, and proline. When you don’t get enough of these amino acids, your body has a more difficult time producing elastin. This has additional downstream effects on your health as elastin is very important in the maintenance of the aorta in your lungs, the ligaments between your joints and more.
Collagen comprises 70 to 80 percent of the skin’s dry weight and gives the dermis its structure. As we age, collagen production gradually declines, and our skin becomes thinner.
If a person is Vitamin C deficient, this reaction will not occur and adequate collagen cannot be made.
These levels can easily be achieved with IV administration of vitamin C but not with oral intake.
Another fascinating point is that vitamin C was shown to independently DOUBLE the DNA to collagen transcription, meaning that vitamin C actually “talks to” your DNA telling it to make more collagen.
As important as it is to keep healthy synthesis or collagen and elastin it is also important to prevent their damage and degradation.
