How Long is a Beauty Angel Session?

Each session is 12 minutes.
Why does my skin age?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Skin aging is influenced by numerous factors. The supply of nutrients to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) already starts to decline from the age of 25 onwards, resulting in a tired, sallow and uneven complexion. As people get older, fibroblast (cells that produce collagen) metabolism slows down, resulting in a continual decline in the collagen content of the skin. Since collagen is the primary filler in connective tissue, the skin loses tautness. The reduced cell regeneration also causes a loss of moisture and elasticity, ultimately resulting in the formation of wrinkles.

Beauty Angel at SunScape helps to reduce and counter effect this.
How does skin rejuvenation using red light work?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
SunScape is leading the way in skin care solutions with Beauty Angel.

Beauty Angel uses light in special ranges of effectiveness to rejuvenate the skin naturally. The so-called Beauty Light is absorbed by the skin cells (fibroblasts), where it stimulates the body's own production of collagen, elastic and hyaluronan. Small wrinkles are reduced and the skin becomes visibly tauter and smoother. The treatment also enhances the absorption of cosmetics into the skin, making them more effective. Enjoy a soothing session in the Beauty Angel and simply feel good in your skin!
What is collagen?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Collagen is the most important protein in our body. It is a fundamental building block of connective tissue and is found not only in the skin, but also in tendons, joints, ligaments, bones, blood-vessel walls - and even in the cornea in the eye. As it is collagen that determines the firmness of connective tissue, it is also called the body's "filler". Sufficient collagen content is therefore the main requirement for skin to have a firm appearance - and indeed the whole body. But collagen is also vitally important for the health of bones, tendons, joints, ligaments etc.

The red light emitted by the Beauty Angel lamps is absorbed by your skin and collagen is produced.
What is elastin?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Elastin is a so-called structural protein and part of connective tissue. Because it can stretch, elastin gives the skin its elasticity. Along with collagen and hyaluron it contributes significantly to having an attractive and youthful skin tone.
What is hyaluron?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Hyaluron (also known as hyaluronic acid) is a natural substance in the body, and just like collagen and elastin is an important component of skin connective tissue. Like a sponge hyaluron can store large amounts of water and this gives the skin a plump and fresh appearance.
What are fibroblasts?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Fibroblasts are cells which occur in the connective tissue and are responsible mainly for the production of collagen, but also of elastin and hyaluron. As we grow older the metabolism of the fibroblasts slows down, which means the collagen content of the skin drops by on average 1% per year. This process is speeded up particularly during the menopause. Since collagen is the primary "filler" in connective tissue, the skin loses its tautness. The reduced cell regeneration also causes a loss of moisture and elasticity, ultimately resulting in the formation of wrinkles. The special light of the Beauty Light lamps stimulates the fibroblast metabolism and so increases the creation of collagen, elastin and hyaluron.

It's a great SunScape solution for younger looking skin.
What kind of results can I expect?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
The results of the redlight treatment are directly related to your age, your lifestyle and the current state of health of your skin. Many users report a relaxing effect and a fresher, softer skin even after just one treatment. Best results are obtained from regular use over a longer time period. In a broadly-based study 80% of those surveyed had softer skin after one month, and over 60% other visible effects. After the second month all the results had clearly improved again. Users had a firmer skin, less wrinkles, finer pores and generally more even skin tone. 

Short-term results

  • Soft, supple skin
  • Increased moisture
  • A more glowing complexion
  • Increased resistance
  • Refines pores and improves skin texture
  • Relaxing, feel-good factor

Long-term results

  • Reduces small wrinkles on the face and décolleté
  • Age and pigment spots fade
  • Reduces swelling around the eyes
  • Replenishes the collagen and elastin in the connective tissue – for visibly tauter skin on the whole body
  • Positive influence on hair and nail growth, bones and tendons
  • Improved regeneration capacity of muscles
How can I reach my goals?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Most users report a relaxing effect and a fresher, softer skin even after just the first few treatments. For the best results it should be used regularly over a longer time period. SunScape recommends  going 2-3 times a week for the first 90 days and then 1-2 times a week for maintenance.

Depending on the reason for the treatment, various different treatment plans can be recommended:

For youthful skin with the aim of toning the skin, reducing impurities and protection from environmental factors 10 treatments may be enough. To freshen the skin and combat the first signs of skin aging about 20 treatments should be applied over two months. For more mature skin, and to actively combat skin aging and wrinkles, about 30 treatments over three months are recommended. 
Of course recommended treatment plans may vary in individual cases. Results can be further improved by the additional use of top quality skincare products. Ideally you should support your treatment by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Make sure you get enough sleep, cut out smoking, eat a balanced diet and drink at least two litres of water per day. You will see - your body and skin will thank you for it! 

SunScape offers 3 Beauty Angel products that will improve your results and can be addressed with any SunScape associate.
How can I maintain the results?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
The process of collagen and elastin synthesis continues for a period after completion of the sessions. You can easily preserve the results with two or three follow-up sessions a month and the use of special skincare products. For best results the Beauty Angel can of course be used once or week, or more often, after your course of treatment has been completed. There is no risk of overdosing. 

SunScape offers extremely affordable maintenance packages so please inquire with an associate for the best one to suit your needs.
