Dermaviduals® skincare line is based on the science of restoring and maintaining healthy skin, a concept called Corneotherapy. This is a customized dermatological skincare solution, designed to optimally maintain the natural skin barrier and prevent premature aging.
Corneotherapy’s core principle is the correction and restoration of the stratum corneum (the outer skin layer) and barrier defence systems. This is done by supplying the natural oils and moisturizing factors that belong in our skin; effectively maintaining, in particular, the stratum corneum, which consists of tightly-packed skin cells that keep unwanted irritants and antigens out, while retaining the moisture inside, serving as a protective shield. Aging and environmental factors can weaken this vital barrier, allowing viruses and bacteria to penetrate the skin and moisture to escape, leaving the skin dry, dull and lifeless.
The Corneotherapy approach is to work from the “outside in”, thereby first repairing the barrier, then working their way into the deeper skin layers. Dermaviduals® (lamellar) creams follow this outside-in concept. They are modelled on cell membranes; biocompatible with the skin and able to restore disrupted skin barrier membranes.
The 3 R’s
At DermaNuva our strategy for great skin is based on the 3 R’s of Corneotherapy: Repair, Replenish, and Regenerate. Skin rejuvenation is a process. From the first encounter with a new client during their consultation or Advanced Skin Analysis, we educate them on the fundamental steps that form the foundation of everything we do.
Every new client has a skin concern. Discoloration, redness, acne, wrinkles & reactive skin are all signs of a compromised skin. Without the skin’s barrier defence functioning properly, the inner world of the skin is open to the extremes of the outer environments that contain allergens and pathogens. By repairing the surface and underlying structure, the inner world of the skin will return to a balanced state.
Customized active ingredients ensure a healthy & viable cell membrane that helps replenish cellular activity in the skin. The advanced technology of Dermaviduals® skincare mimic the skin’s natural oils to restore skin barrier disorders & aid in skin health.
Once the outer layers of the skin are repaired & replenished, it’s time to address the deeper layers to regenerate cells and increase collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein in the skin and is the main building block for cells, tissues & organs. From the age of 25, we start to lose 1-2% collagen per year. The skin loses its natural elasticity & firmness, leading to fine lines, wrinkles & sagging skin.
