• The 411 On Collagen

    Posted by DRMTLGY Blog

    What is collagen?

    Collagen is the latest buzz - it can be found in smoothies, supplements, injections, topical products, etc. It's everywhere and for good reason.

    Collagen is the substance that holds the body together by providing strength and structure. It's mainly found in the skin, bones, and connective tissue throughout the body. 

    Being a skin care company, lets focus on the skin.

     

     

    Different types of collagen

    There are at least 16 different types of collagen, but 80 to 90 percent of them belong to types, I, II, and III. 

    Collagen I and III are very similar in that they both support skin, muscles, bone health, hair health, and nail growth. Over 90% of the collagen in the body is made from these two types of collagen.

    Collagen II makes up the fluids and function in the cartilage and joints.

     

     

    The life cycle of collagen

    Over time, collagen levels and production start to decline. Research has shown that after the age of 20, one percent less of collagen is produced in the dermis each year.*

    Environmental factors and lifestyle choices also play a role in the degeneration of collagen. Smoking, UV rays, and pollution all play a factor in premature aging.

    Topical, non-toxic ways to boost collagen

    Our Needle-less serum employs multiple revolutionary active ingredients to boost collagen and elastin levels within the skin. 

    This multi-active formula is composed of the industry-leading hyaluronic acid, which boosts the skin's natural moisture content, providing a "plumping" effect.

    Aside from the hyaluronic acid, you will also find a specialized copper complex that naturally stimulates and promotes collagen production quickly and effectively.

    In just two weeks of using the Needle-less Serum, our studies support an increase in volume by 190%. With Needle-less, you have the ability to turn back the hands of time by applying this serum twice daily to affected areas.

  • Dark Spots, Sun Spots, Age Spots

    Posted by DRMTLGY Blog

    What are dark spots, sun spots, and age spots?

    These spots are the result of excess production of melanin, or pigment, in your skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas of the skin. Natural aging, sun exposure (UV light exposure), and hormonses are all likely causes of these spots.

    The most common areas of the body that these spots will occur:

    • Face
    • Back of the hands
    • Upper back/Shoulders
    • Forearms

    Products that fade dark spots, sun spots, and age spots

    DRMTLGY has several products that are clinically proven to fade dark spots, sun spots, and age spots quickly. Our combination of active ingredients, which includes hydroquinone and retinoids, provide noticeable differences in as little as 2 weeks of use.

    Do these products permanently lighten pigmentation?

    While our products dramatically lighten pigmentation, the results are not permanent. Your pigmentation might remain lighter than previous use of the product, but sun exposure and hormones may still contribute to the production excess melanin, resulting in pigmentation.

    The most important part of treating pigmentation issues, and preventing them, is to wear ample sunscreen that both protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays.

    Preventing dark spots, sun spots, and age spots

    Completely preventing them is nearly impossible, but if you follow the steps below, your chances of getting them will be significantly reduced.

    • Avoid the sun during peak hours (10AM - 3 PM)
    • Wear sunscreen everyday. Make sure that it contains UVA and UVB protection
    • Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply after entering water and every two hours.
    • Wear protective clothing

  • How Needle-less Serum Works

    Posted by DRMTLGY Blog

    About Collagen

    As we age, collagen production within our skin starts slowing as early as your 20s. Collagen is the abundant protein found within our skin that provides structure, such as elasticity and volume. In addition to the natural aging process, collagen deteriorates as a result of damage caused from harmful UV rays.

     

    How Needle-less Serum Works

    Our Needle-less Serum effectively boosts and stimulates the collagen production within the skin, resulting in an increase in volume, which improves the laxity of the skin. This multi-active formula is composed of the industry-leading hyaluronic acid, which boosts the skin's natural moisture content, providing a "plumping" effect.

    Aside from the hyaluronic acid, you will also find a specialized copper complex that naturally stimulates and promotes collagen production quickly and effectively.

    In just two weeks of using the Needle-less Serum, our studies support an increase in volume by 190%. With Needle-less, you have the ability to turn back the hands of time by applying this serum twice daily to affected areas.

    As always, DRMTLGY highly recommends the use of daily sun protection, in addition to an antioxidant, to combat free radicals and harmful UV rats that cause premature aging.

  • The special needs of your neck and décolleté

    Posted by DRMTLGY Blog

    Décolleté is French for the upper area of a woman's torso, mainly the neck area. This area of the body is often ignored, or overlooked by most skin care routines. We're here to tell you why not to overlook it!

     

    The Décolleté

    Most clothing leaves the décolleté exposed to damaging UVA and UVB rays, more so than other parts of our skin. This causes premature aging around the neck and chest area - sun spots, wrinkled skin, redness, and skin creases.

    The décolleté is thinner, has fewer oil glands, and is more sensitive than most parts of the body. This makes it very susceptible to premature aging.

    Specialized Products

    Due to the thinness and sensitivity of the area, it is important to use products specifically designed for the neck and décolleté. This includes specialized moisturizers and SPF protection.

  • What is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)?

    Posted by DRMTLGY Blog

    What is an AHA?

    If you've been looking into skin care products, there's a great chance that you've seen 'AHAs' in the product descriptions. To put it simply, an AHA, which is an abbreviation of Alpha Hydroxy Acid, is a dead skin "detacher."

    Mainly derived from milk and fruit sugars, these "detachers" loosen up the glue that keeps dead cells and debris on your skin. They help to reveal healthier, brighter, and plumper skin. 

    The most common AHAs are Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid.

     

    Glycolic Acid

    This acid, which can be derived from Sugar Cane, has the smallest molecular structure. It's small molecular structure allows it to have the greatest effect on the skin.

    Lactic Acid

    Most commonly derived from milk, lactic acid has a slightly larger molecular structure. This makes it a better ingredient for sensitive skin types.

    Why choose AHAs

    Alpha Hydroxy Acids are a great choice for dry skin because of their ability to hold moisture. They are water-soluble and work best on bare, clean skin. They are also a great choice for addressing advanced signs of aging.
