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.
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.
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 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).

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.
