5 pillars for youthful skin and fuller hair

SKINLONGEVITY

Junge lachende Frau symbolisiert Skinlongevity

Longevity involves a holistic approach based on preventive healthcare and health promotion. Certain strategies can be used to optimise various aspects of well-being in order to remain vital and improve quality of life in old age.

This beauty and anti-ageing concept can also be tailored specifically to our skin and hair: with Skinlongevity, also known as Skingevity. The goal: Better ageing for skin and hair, which ultimately has a positive effect on our entire body. This approach is based on biohacking, which involves influencing our epigenetic control system. Put simply, the ‘good’ genes are switched on and the ‘bad’ genes are switched off. The path to achieving this goal consists of five pillars.

Skinlongevity concept consultation

Each of our treatments begins with a comprehensive consultation. In a detailed consultation, we will inform you about the principle of Skinlongevity and provide you with insight into what a treatment tailored specifically to you and your needs could entail. We will answer all your questions and give you detailed information about the expected costs.

Analysis: Comprehensive diagnostics including DNA test

The next step is to assess the current condition of your body. We want to find out how your skin and hair are doing so that we can draw up a personalised treatment plan for a healthier and more vital life. The following diagnostic methods are part of this second pillar:

Epigenetic age test

We analyse epigenetic markers in your DNA using a saliva sample. This allows us to determine your biological age. Such markers can be influenced by lifestyle changes.

Hormone check

In collaboration with a specialised laboratory, we carry out a detailed analysis of your hormone levels. This makes it possible to identify any deficits and develop targeted treatment concepts.

Vital substance analysis

We analyse your status with regard to vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Based on your health and diet, we adjust your intake through a special diet or nutritional supplement if necessary.

Skin and hair DNA test

By taking a simple swab of the oral mucosa, we can analyse the factors that influence skin ageing and hair loss. Risk factors and preventive treatment options are identified in order to maintain or improve the appearance of the skin and hair.

VisiaScan

VisiaScan involves 3D imaging of your skin to reveal wrinkles, structural defects or pigment shifts, for example. We use this information as the basis for creating your individual treatment and care concept.

Body bioimpedance analysis

We measure body composition and BMI to get a detailed picture of your physical condition. The ratio of waist to hip circumference can provide information about possible health risks.

Food intolerance test

Do you have allergies or intolerances that impair your quality of life? We find this out through tests and an assessment of your skin.

Skin cancer screening

We use modern technologies and intelligent algorithms to analyse our skin cancer screening. In this way, risks can be effectively minimised.

Stool analysis

A stool analysis can be used to find out whether there are any intolerances or illnesses. A healthy gut is very important for your general well-being as well as healthy skin and strong hair.

Vascular ultrasound

A vascular ultrasound provides information about the condition of your veins and arteries. This step is crucial to prevent possible vascular diseases.

Sleep analysis

A good night’s sleep is essential for the regeneration of your body. We identify possible disorders and find a way to treat them.

Natural beauty boosters for a younger look

The third pillar focuses on active ingredients that are able to stimulate the skin’s own regeneration processes, alleviate inflammation in the skin and boost collagen and elastin production. Natural help for self-help: This is also what Skinlongevity stands for. There are various options in this context.

Biostimulators

Biostimulators are substances that work together with your body’s natural growth factors. They stimulate collagen production, which leads to tissue renewal. This process shows initial success after several weeks to months. Some of these active ingredients can also be effective against hair loss.

Biostimulators include the following substances and treatments:

  • Polynucleotides
  • Radiesse®
  • HArmony CA™
  • Sculptra®
  • UltraCol
  • PRP treatment

We determine which biostimulators are right for you on an individual basis.

Stem cells & exosomes

Stem and stromal cells are present in our body as a natural source of regeneration. They can be obtained using minimally invasive methods and used as biological fillers. They promote skin renewal and collagen formation and also have an anti-inflammatory effect. Exosomes – the smallest cells of released vesicles – can also contribute to skin rejuvenation.

Mesotherapy

As part of mesotherapy, we apply nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants under the skin. This can improve the skin structure and stimulate collagen production. The treatment is used for various skin problems and can also be part of the therapy for hair loss.

Hormones

Hormones are essential for a large number of bodily functions. They have an influence on the appearance and health of skin and hair. The following hormones play a decisive role when it comes to the longevity of hair, skin and body:

  • Oestrogens
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Melatonin
  • Growth hormone (HGH)
  • Pregnenolone
  • Vitamin D (hormone precursor)

In the event of an imbalance, we do not want to interfere with nature, but offer effective support through targeted hormone therapy.

Nutrition and gut health

As already mentioned, a healthy gut is essential for our well-being. The so-called microbiome, an association of countless microorganisms, is essential for the defence of our immune system. The psyche and skin health can also be influenced. The fourth pillar of the Skinlongevity concept deals with nutrition and gut health.

Blue zones and avoidance of silent inflammation

The blue zones represent areas where the world’s oldest people live. They strive for a healthy lifestyle, without smoking, with only moderate alcohol consumption and a plant-based diet. Social engagement can also have a positive influence on longevity and Skingevity. In contrast, an unhealthy diet can fuel a silent inflammation that often goes unnoticed and can lead to various diseases.

Pre- and probiotics

Prebiotics, often called dietary fibres, can maintain the balance of the intestinal flora. They are found in many foods, including fruit with high pectin content and root vegetables. Probiotics are living microorganisms that feed on prebiotics. They are primarily found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut and yoghurt and support our skin health. An individual analysis is essential for compiling personalised preparations.

Fasting

There is no such thing as the perfect diet for youthfulness and pure happiness. However, you can positively influence your metabolism by making a few adjustments. A moderate reduction in calories can reduce inflammation and support the body’s repair processes. The decisive factor is a sustainable change in diet that is suitable for everyday life. Based on a thorough medical history, we can develop a nutritional strategy tailored to your needs.

Drip spas

Especially in stressful times, the supply of vital nutrients can be a challenge. Infusion therapies, also known as drip spas, can be a helpful way of supplying the body with valuable nutrients. Following a detailed micronutrient analysis, a personalised cocktail of vital substances is put together to promote certain aspects of health.

Skincare

For youthful radiance, a suitable skincare regiment that takes effectiveness and skin compatibility into account is crucial. Our fourth pillar. There are some substances that are recommended when it comes to skincare.

Peptides and growth factors

The body’s own peptides, known as fibroblast growth factor (FGF), keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) or epidermal growth factor (EGF), can promote tissue healing and stimulate skin cell renewal. They stimulate the production of connective tissue fibres, which leads to a firmer and smoother skin texture.

Vitamin A (retinol)

Vitamin A is considered a powerful anti-ageing agent. It stimulates the formation of elastin and collagen fibres, while simultaneously blocking collagen-degrading enzymes. Different retinoids are suitable for different skin types.

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide)

Niacinamide is known for its anti-inflammatory and pore-refining properties. The active ingredient promotes the formation of ceramides, which play an important role in the skin barrier. It is very well tolerated and offers many benefits for different skin types.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is the protective shield against free radicals, which can lead to premature skin ageing. This vitamin strengthens the immune system, supports fat burning and produces a lightening effect on pigmentation spots.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid binds moisture in the skin and can thus ensure a plump skin appearance. Natural hyaluronic acid production decreases with age. Here it is important to increase the amount by using appropriate skincare products.

Fruit acids

Thanks to their peeling effect, fruit acids can remove loose horny flakes from the skin and lead to a finer, smoother complexion. They are moisturising and particularly effective for sun-damaged skin and blemishes. Different forms are used depending on the skin type.

Stem cells

Stem cells in cosmetics are always plant-based. For example, they can be extracted from roots, shoots, bark or fruits such as raspberries or apples. Their strengths lie in the stimulation of cell regeneration, the protection of cell DNA and the inhibition of inflammation. This allows you to maintain youthful skin.

Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is essential for energy production in our cells. It has an antioxidant effect and supports collagen formation. It can also have positive effects on hair growth.

Facials & Massages

Touch, as in the case of facials and massages, can influence messenger substances in our body. Such applications therefore have a direct influence on our health and well-being. The messenger substance oxytocin, also known as the happiness hormone, plays a special role. The release of oxytocin has a calming and anxiety-relieving effect – an effect that can also have a positive impact on the skin.
