What is the IAL System?
The IAL System is a dermal treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin. It is an injection which is designed to be administered to larger areas of skin in the face and neck. It is not a filler type treatment intended for plumping out lines and wrinkles; instead it aims to hydrate the skin and improve its elasticity. The IAL system should be considered as a skin improvement treatment, rather than a treatment intended to fill areas where lines and wrinkles have occurred.
How the IAL System improves the Skin?
The IAL System is composed from a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural chemical found in various parts of the body including the skin. Within the skin it is crucial for repair and has a role in maintaining cell function. It has a composition much like jelly; it fills up the spaces between elastin and collagen, trapping water, allowing essential substances to pass into the skin cells, and acting as a protective cushion for skin cells. Hyaluronic acid production is depleted by exposure to UV rays (sun damage) and naturally diminishes with age. This depletion is a factor in ageing of the skin, as elasticity is compromised which leads to the formation of wrinkles. The IAL System stimulates the skin to naturally produce hyaluronic acid and the fibroblasts crucial for producing collagen, elastin, and maintaining the matrix of the skin. It stimulates blood vessel development which leads to an increase in the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skins matrix, and it protects the skin from radicals which are highly damaging to cells. The result is a visible improvement where the skin appears more youthful, healthier, and replenished in tone and hydration.
