Skin

Basic anatomy

There are three main layers to the skin, the Epidermis, Dermis, and Subcutaneous Tissue. At Array Beauty Company, skincare services are based off of various treatment depths and desired client outcomes.

EPIDERMIS 

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

    ageing. Generally speaking, the dead skins cells in this layer have moved to

    the surface, from the deeper layers, to be sloughed off. Cells have gone from

    their original hydrated, plump, cube-like shape to a flat and dehydrated cells

    that look dull.

 

DERMIS

     This is the thick layer of living tissue below the epidermis which

     forms the true skin, containing blood capillaries, nerve endings,

     sweat glands, hair follicles, and other structures.

SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE 

     Subcutaneous tissue is the deepest layer of your skin. It's made up

     mostly of fat cells and connective tissue. The subcutaneous layer

     acts as insulation to protect your internal organs and muscles from

     shock and changes in temperature.

As We Age

Fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and pigmentation

Over time, we lose elasticity, and subcutaneous fat around the cheeks, temples, and eyes. Gravity also contributes strain on the skin and cartilage as they both begin to sag. We see the early visibility of these changes in the form of fine lines.

 

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 Botox. Dermal fillers are designed to add lost volume back to the face, while neurotoxins like Botox minimize muscle movement, reducing  repetitive motion (expression) wrinkles. 

Minor hyperpigmentation can be treat with topical products, and Microneedling. Darker sunspots are usually treated more effectively with light therapy such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL), or Broad Band Light (BBL).

Cleanser

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 most skin types. Great for dehydrated, normal.

      combination, or aging skin.
