Skin Benefits of Deep Hydration

| Dec 4, 2017

Dehydration causes skin aging. Visible Aging encompasses the loss of moisture, the reduction of firmness and decreased elasticity beneath the skin’s surface. Dehydration causes skin aging.

Hydration plays a pivotal role in reversing, minimizing, and treating visible aging, no matter how it happens. To understand how Skin Dehydration damages the skin structures which in turn leads to the signs of ageing – let’s take a closer look at skin fundamentals on a cellular level.

Visible Aging Defined: Cellular Senescence

Cellular Senescence is the scientific word for cellular aging. It describes the slow measureable decline in cell function after maturation is reached on a cellular level.

The natural production of compounds that create youthful skin such as moisture retaining Hyaluronic Acid decreases leaving our skin with a diminished capacity to hold hydration and maintain its plump, refreshed, youthful appearance.

3 Building Blocks: Fundamental Skin Cellular Function

Collagen is The Essential to beautiful skin. The collagen protein is vital as it makes up-to 35% of the content of the human body and is found in skin, muscle & bone. There is more than one type of Collagen inside our skin. Collagen is the key building block which helps to provide structure, texture & tone. Healthy collagen results in healthy skin.

Collagen can be built, supplemented, created, and changed. Healthy collagen can also be maintained. Aberrant collagen can be changed with Laser Technology. Skin Boosters and other Aesthetic Treatments can increase Collagen production.

Dehydration destroys Collagen. When it does not have enough water the collagen structure begins to crack which leads to fine lines and wrinkles.


Fibroblasts are a type of cell inside our skin structures. They create very important connective tissue by combining the intercellular matrix with collagen. This function is imperative for healthy skin and for wound-healing.

Dehydration impairs this process and can lead to weakened skin structure and extended healing times.


“You are as old as your Elastin” – Naren Vyavahare

This fibre is the ‘elastic’ that keeps our skin ‘tight’ underneath our skin. As we age, the level of Elastin in our bodies decreases. Elastin fibres degrade over time and this changes our skin texture and firmness. It was thought until very recently that we did not have a way of creating new Elastin or of allowing Elastin to be regenerated.

Science now suggests that substances such red wine and tea contain compounds called Polyphenols. These Polyphenols can bind with Elastin and help preserve them and may in some cases trigger Elastin production.

Discovering how to deliver these Polyphenols is under investigation; utilizing nano-robots is the current forefront of scientific study on Elastin. Further work in this area may offer new exciting breakthroughs in the world of Aesthetics!

Dehydration can hasten the demise of Elastins.

Dehydration Accelerates Visible Aging

Dehydration negatively impairs metabolism functioning on every level. It has a negative effect on the production and maintenance of the building blocks that create healthy glowing skin.

Enhance Moisture to Rejuvenate Skin 

Visible aging seen on the skin equals a reduction of regenerative cells in the skin. An effective way to reduce visible aging is to boost the regenerative cells and/or to increase moisture in the skin structures. SAI’s Aesthetic Treatments do exactly this – working to replace, increase, and supplement skin fundamentals. Restoring the skin’s ability to retain moisture is the key to healthy skin.
