Laserless Anti-Ageing Option

Just about every week, a new product lands on my desk, and I do love trying them all out. Last year, I tried the Olay range for the first time in many years. Not only have I personally tested and like this range, but others appear to concur.
Since its launch in New Zealand five years ago, Olay Regenerist has become known as the alternative to drasti anti-ageing procedures such as laser, Botox & chemical peels. This year, Olay's most scientific, advanced and innovative range, and the anti-ageing choice of millions of women around the world, has undergone a complete transformation - including a formulation upgrade and new packaging. Laser anti-ageing treatments involve using energy from a light source to remove the top layer of skin, stimulating your skin's own natural wound-healing ability. When your skin is zapped with a laser beam, it rapidly heats up the skin, creating micro-wounds and triggering the wound-healing process of your skin. When skin cells are injured, a slew of amino-peptides are released within the skin, which instructs your skin to repair the damage. These signals cause your skin to produce collagen and elastin, which result in firmer skin and a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Olay's new Regenerist range has a similar mechanism of action to laser and is positioned as a laserless anti-ageing option. You can put the same important amino-peptides to work in your skin, helping to reduce the signs of ageing, without the drastic cosmetic procedure. Auckland appearance medicine specialist, Dr Garsing Wong, says that while in the past cosmetic laser procedures have been seen as the 'gold standard' for non-surgical revitalisation of your skin, the new improved Olay Regenerist range is a great option to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for younger-looking skin, without the use of a laser. "Overall, I believe the products in the new and improved Olay Regenerist range are scientifically advanced and innovative, and can work to help improve the signs of ageing on your face. The science behind the products is impressive," says Dr Wong. "This is a great laserless anti-ageing option for women who do not wish to take the next step to restore youthful skin."
The range contains an amino-peptide called pal-KTTKS, which is scientifically proven to boost collagen production and help to regenerate skin surface. It also contains another amino-peptide - Carnosine - which protects the skin as a powerful antioxidant. When the skin is impacted by environmental factors, collagen becomes damaged and takes the full brunt of the damage. A UV cream helps to decrease some of this damage, but the presence of Carnosine reduces collagen damage by half compared to unprotected skin. Basically, Carnosine is proven to protect collagen, and the end result is younger looking skin! The addition of Carnosine to the other antioxidants already in Regenerist (Vitamin E and green tea extract) boosts the antioxidant capacity by 30%. "The amino-peptide complex in Olay Regenerist can help to harness your skin's natural wound-healing ability to visibly regenerate youthful, healthy skin, leading to a dramatically younger-looking complexion. And with the introduction of Carnosine in new Olay Regenerist, skin can be even more protected," says P&G Beauty Senior Scientist, David Khoo. "Getting older is a part of life but counting the years doesn't mean you have to count the lines on your face," says Olay Beauty Expert Samala Robinson. "Being in the cosmetic industry for much of my career, I understand how important it is to feel good about how you look. And after starting my own company and having a child I've tried just about every anti-ageing product out there. The Olay Regenerist Range is different - it's pure science. The result is like you've had work done, but miraculously with none of the work! My favourite is the Daily Revitalizing Serum; I smooth a few drops over my face and instantly my skin feels nourished and hydrated. I started to notice a visible difference in my skin within days and when I kept using Olay Regenerist, my skin began to look cleaner, healthier and younger. Everyone noticed, and you just can't help but feel good.
