Facial Structures

Basic anatomy

There are many layers to the face. At Array Beauty Company, treatments are based off of depth and desired client outcomes. Treating all layers of the face provides the best results!

EPIDERMIS (superficial skin)

    This is the protective, outer layer of skin where we see the visible signs of

    ageing. Generally speaking, the dead skin cells in this layer have migrated to

    the surface to be sloughed off. Cells have gone from their original hydrated, plump,

    cube-like shape to a flat and dehydrated cells that look dull.


Treatments: Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion,

Dermaplane, Nanoneedling

DERMIS (deep skin)

     This is the thick layer of living tissue below the epidermis that contains collagen,

     elastin, blood capillaries, nerve endings (this is why waxing hurts), sweat glands,

     hair follicles, and other structures that keep the skin firm and toned. 

Treatments: Microneedling,RF Skin tightening,

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), PDO Powder


     This area is made-up of a layer of fat, and connective tissue. It acts as protection

     and insulation over your muscles and deeper structures.

Treatments: RF Skin tightening, Fat Cavitation, PDO Threads


     The tissue that makes us move! In the face, muscles can create expressive wrinkles

     over time. Relaxing these muscles can reduce or remove wrinkles and fine lines. 

Treatments: Neurotoxin - Botox, Dysport, Xeomin


     Thick pads and bone that provide cushion, and supportive structure for our face.

     As we age, these tissues reduce in size and lose volume creating a tired, or

     hollowed look. 

Treatments: Dermal Fillers

As We Age

Fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and pigmentation

Over time, we lose elasticity, and subcutaneous fat around the cheeks, temples, and eyes. Gravity and deterioration of elastic fibers (collagen) also contributes strain on the skin and cartilage as they both begin to descend. We see the early signs of these changes in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, nasal labial folds, and descending skin over the eyes.

Fine lines and wrinkles can be softened with many non-invasive skincare services, but deep wrinkles or folds generally need a more advanced therapy, such as dermal filler or Neuromodulator (Botox). Dermal fillers are designed to add lost volume back to the face, while neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport minimize muscle movement, reducing  repetitive motion (expression) wrinkles. In some cases surgery may be the best option for addressing facial descent. 

Cosmetically speaking, minor hyperpigmentation can be treat with clinical-grade skincare, and Microneedling. Darker sunspots are usually treated more effectively with light therapies such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL), or Broad Band Light (BBL) laser treatments. It is important to consider all of the available options and consult with a professional to determine which treatments are best for you.

Treatments Based on Depth

At-Home Skincare

Bar Soap: Every skincare professional will cringe if you say that you use bar soap.

     Bar soap tends to leave residue, and strip skin it of its natural oils. This can

     cause your skin to feel tight, dry, and irritated. 

Foaming: Usually formulated for oily, acne prone skin. Typically these cleansers

     can be very dehydrating. However, there are several gentle foaming 

     cleansers on the market now for those of you who have sensitive skin, and

     like the the foamy feel. 

Cream: The best choice for dry skin types. Great for dehydrated, normal.

     combination, or aging skin, cream cleansers deposit moisture while removing 

     debris and makeup.
