2021 № 5 Modern methods of prevention of aging, antiage programs
u s t i f i c a t i o n : Aging is a natural process. Skin aging is the result of both internal aging due to the passage of time, and external aging – as a consequence of environmental damage, primarily due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Chronologically aged skin of the body has fine wrinkles, thin, relatively flattened, dry and unblemished with some loss of elasticity. It shows a General atrophy of the extracellular matrix, which is reflected in a decrease in the number of fibroblasts. In addition, the levels of collagen and elastin are reduced, and their organization is disrupted due to a decrease in the synthesis of collagen types I and III in the dermis and increased breakdown of extracellular matrix proteins. G o a l : to improve and analyze modern programs against skin aging.
M e t h o d s : the subjects performed the skin care procedure twice a day for 28 days. The face was divided along the midline, and Group 1 applied placebo cleanser and placebo moisturizer to the left side of the face and test cleanser and test moisturizer to the right side of the face. Group 2 applied a placebo cleanser and placebo moisturizer to the left side of the face and a positive control cleanser and a positive control moisturizer to the right side of the face. The parameters of TEWL hydration, degree of stretching, elasticity, skin recovery, depth, number and frequency of wrinkles were measured.
R e s u l t s : the study demonstrated that the new skin care system, which is suitable for use on sensitive skin, has a positive effect on several signs of aging, including skin hydration, skin elasticity and wrinkle size, without any side effects for 28 days. These parameters are expected to improve further in future use.
