HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator: A NEW ADDITION TO OUR FORMULARY TO KEEP YOUR SKIN YOUTHFUL

 

Our skin is the natural barrier that protects us from the environment. Some of the most important functions of the skin are blocking external pathogens and other substances from penetrating the body and preventing water loss. These functions are performed primarily by the epidermis by producing a protective highly impermeable layer. Unfortunately, skin barrier dysfunction is one of the trademarks of aged skin, placing it in a constant stage of water loss. A commonly used approach in the cosmetic industry for the past two decades is to temporarily improve the epidermal barrier function by externally replacing lost lipids or water. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the key molecule involved in the control of skin hydration. Although this approach has shown some effectiveness, it does not address the core problem: age related epidermal dysfunction. Additionally, externally added lipids must be protected from lipid peroxidation in order for them to provide any beneficial benefits by either using sunscreen or antioxidants. Skin Medica's HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, a product that restores epidermal function and skin hydration by improving the natural ability of the skin to rejuvenate itself. Results from an eight week clinical study demonstrated that HA5 used twice daily results in continuous improvements in fine lines/wrinkles and tactile roughness as well enhanced hydration. Restoring the skin's barrier function is a process that involves hydration and lipid composition which can be successfully accomplished by restoring the endogenous levels of epidermal HA. The restoration of epidermal health by HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, available now at Medical Skin Care, not only impacts skin quality but can also improve the outcome of other cosmetic procedures.

If you haven’t chosen Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC ) over AARP yet, you may want to reconsider. During the first Presidential debate, President Obama touted the support of AARP for ObamaCare several times.  While AARP immediately responded by saying, “AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party”, recently released emails between the White House and AARP operatives seem to indicate that AARP threw their tremendous lobbying power behind the legislation despite the fact they were getting calls overwhelmingly against it. Due to the emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that AARP worked through 2009-2010 as an extension of a Democratic White House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know that despite AARP’s awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill, the ‘nonpartisan organization’ chose to serve the president’s agenda. Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election.

AMAC is against the harsh provisions in ObamaCare that gives the Federal government complete control of our healthcare. It destroys the best healthcare system in the world, takes 716 billion dollars out of Medicare, and has the power to restrict and ration our medical treatment. AMAC is fighting to keep our right to receive treatment from our doctors without the interference of Federal bureaucrats. Big government experiments like the “stimulus” and ObamaCare have only increased the uncertainty and instability, and are core reasons for the persistently high unemployment rate and why the household incomes of Mature Americans have declined so much.

AMAC, The Association of Mature American Citizens, believes we can do much better. As a steadily growing alternative to groups like AARP, and with an expanding influence in the Nation’s capital, they aim to champion the interests of Mature Americans, seniors, and prospective retirees. Their believe is in religious freedom, free enterprise, and support common sense solutions to our Nation’s largest challenges.

Hyperhidrosis or over sweating is a serious problem that occurs daily and often at the most inopportune times. In the past there were many treatments for hyperhidrosis, most of which were ineffective, leaving the patients frustrated and unhappy. Several years ago, a dramatic breakthrough in the treatment of hyperhidrosis was discovered by injecting Botox into areas of increased sweating, including the palms, soles, face and axillae. This treatment proven to be very effective and safe. Typically one treatment will control sweating for months and many physicians have found that after several treatments the need for further injections lessens dramatically, leaving some individuals appearing to be "cured". To consult about this problem with a dermatologist call 265-2100 to schedule an appointment today.
