We specialize in Nutrition-Based Aesthetics and CorneotherapeuticTreatments.
What does this mean?
We approach the skin from a WHOLE BODY perspective using skin repairing products, treatments, & nutrition to build healthy skin. Integrating both wholistic therapies & diet into a comprehensive treatment plan.
We know that skin is a site of response, & we take each response into consideration to determine the root cause. By understanding the root cause of a skin condition we are better able to create a treatment program that will actually result in the repair & rejuvenation of the skin. Root cause may be topical or it may be internal.
As a member of the International Association for Applied Corneotherapy, our wholistic therapies adhere to the principles of Corneotherapy which are:
"To correct & restore the stratum corneum & barrier defence systems, & to keep the epidermis intact at all times."
"Corneotherapy is an innovative & progressive skin treatment methodology that has proven it is possible to achieve a healthy skin with an optimally functioning innate immune system by preventing or reducing structural inflammation.
This approach leads to homeostasis & the improved function of the entire integument; protecting against harmful substances & microorganisms, while keeping the epidermis intact at all times." ~ The IAC
Recently, researchers discovered the importance of maintaining the skins protective functions, also known as the “skin barrier”, as an effective strategy in the treatment & prevention of various skin conditions. The strategy was coined Corneotherapy. In a nutshell, Corneotherapy is aimed at repairing the skins most outer layer, the stratum corneum, & above all, at improving the barrier function & subsequently the health & balance of the entire skin, restoring homeostasis.
For the purpose of preventive Corneotherapy treatments it is essential to avoid skin care products with harmful substances such as irritants & allergens, to select the appropriate skin care substances & treatments, to individually adapt the skin care products & treatments to the specific skin problems and possibly change nutritional habits following a Corneotherapeutic consultation.
