It is no secret that Sculpt Spa Las Vegas is a premiere destination for those wanting fantastic and healthy skin. Our services for your total skin health and wellness both prevent skin decay and rejuvenate damage to your skin that may already be done.
Some of our offerings help in both areas at once. We’re a leading user of Restylane facial fillers in Las Vegas!
How Facial Fillers Help Preserve Skin
As we age, it is natural to lose elasticity in our skin and facial volume. Restylane facial fillers can restore volume using naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Our expert estheticians are highly skilled in creating natural balance and symmetry to your face. Facial expressions also cause wrinkles in our overlying skin, and these too increase with age.
Sculpt Spa uses anti-wrinkle neuromodulators to block nerve impulses that stimulate muscle contractions, which can soften lines that have set in and even prevent lines from forming in the first place.
What exactly is skin, though?
12 Must-Know Facts About Skin: The Body’s Largest Organ
It is the body’s largest organ and part of the integumentary (body’s outer covering) system. It protects you against germs and regulates your body temperature. It enables the sense of “touch”.
Its main layers include the epidermis, the dermis and hypodermis. It is made of water, protein, fats and minerals.
Here are some amazing facts about your skin you may not know:
1. It starts aging when you are 20
Collagen levels start depleting earlier than most people think. Antioxidants help!
2. Its size is surprising
The average person’s skin covers an area of over 7 square yards. It accounts for about 15% of your body weight, and has about 300 million skin cells, and 11 miles worth of blood vessels.
3. It sheds… a lot!
Your skin sheds about 35000 cells every minute, 9 pounds a year. It is completely renewed every 28 days. Wonder where all that dead skin goes? More than half the dust in your home is your dead skin cells. Our collective dead skin cells comprise about a billion tons of dust in the earth’s atmosphere.
4. It toughens up at times
When it is severely damaged, skin reacts by forming a thick scar tissue that is different than normal skin tissue. It lacks hair and sweat glands. With repeated friction or pressure, skin also toughens up and forms calluses. Thick skin on your elbows are calluses due to years of elbow-leaning. Skin on the bottom of your feet is thicker due to evolution and protecting you when you walk. The thinnest skin is around the eyes.
5. The nerves in your skin are not all the same
Some of your nerves in the skin go to your brain, others go to your spinal cord and react more quickly to pain or heat. There are at least five different types of receptors reacting to pain and touch. When we scratch an itch, the pain caused by scratching temporarily blocks the nerve signals to the brain that were causing the itch.
6. It is our evaporation protection
Our body is 60% water. Without our skin, we would literally evaporate.
When we are cold or feeling a strong emotion, goosebumps appear. These are not actually caused by the skin, but rather, from the muscles. When muscles tense up (from being cold or in reacting to emotions) it causes pores to protrude outward instead of inward.
8. Your skin can switch types
Hormonal imbalance, climate change and age can alter your skin type.
9. Don’t blame Mom and Dad for your aging skin
Many people blame genetics for how their skin ages. The main factor is actually right outside their door. It is the sun. Sun exposure can account for 90 percent of premature aging. Other factors include pollution and smoking.
10.Dry skin is actually unhealthy
Your skin is a barrier to prevent infections from entering the body. When it is dry and cracked, that barrier is broken and makes you susceptible to bacteria, viruses and fungi.
11.Your skin shows your stress
It is not just your expressions that show you are stressed out. Your skin can show that all on its own. Stress triggers cortisol and inflammatory cytokines molecules. These send enzymes throughout your skin that break down collagen.
12.Your skin is a virtual billboard of underlying
Many health conditions and infections trigger responses in your skin, and sometimes these may be your first indication that you have an underlying health issue. These can include rashes, hives, itching, redness or swelling. Such reactions can indicate an allergy, fluctuation hormones, heart disease, diabetes, liver disease and nutritional deficiencies.
Help Your Skin Stay Its Best at Sculpt Spa
Here is the most important fact about your skin: Sculpt Spa Las Vegas is here to help you make sure it is the best it can be. Besides our menu of facial injections with the hyaluronic acid based Restylane family, our infrared sauna in Las Vegas and our vitamin injections should be part of your healthy skin regimen.
One of our infrared sauna sessions provides a skin care benefit while you relax and burn some calories, boost your immunity, and recover from a workout. By stimulating the sweat glands, your infrared sauna session in Las Vegas accelerates the release of accumulated toxins in your skin.
It also stimulates the production of collagen and increases the blood flow to the skin which improves your complexion. It is important to rinse your skin right after your infrared sauna to keep toxins from soaking back into your skin.
Your skin also needs nutrients, and Sculpt Spa is known for its b12 injections in Las Vegas. Check out the detox injection which contains the “master” antioxidant glutathione. It fights free radicals and slows aging by supporting immune function and removing toxins from the body.
Our glow injection is specifically recommended for healthy skin by also combining biotin with glutathione. This combination reduces oxidative stress and promotes healthy nails and hair as well as your skin.
Sculpt Spa Las Vegas also offers NAD+ injections. NAD+ is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a vital coenzyme that makes cells function at optimal levels. It reverses the body’s natural decline and affects the function of sirtuins that inspire a resistance to aging effects.
