RETINOL C SHOT
With its regenerating and rejuvenating properties, the Retinol C Shot exfoliating treatment restores skin firmness, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, and eliminates local discolorations. The treatment involves the application of two products: the ampoule with the VITAMIN C SHOT serum and the RETINOL SHOT mask, which work together to intensify and accelerate the process of cell renewal, additionally purifying the skin and minimizing large pores. After the treatment, the skin is firm, bright, and glowing.
VITAMIN C SHOT + RETINOL SHOT = RETINOL C SHOT
Each ampoule of the VITAMIN C SHOT serum contains a unique combination of antioxidants and natural plant extracts that effectively inhibit the oxidation processes directly causing the skin to age faster. Ascorbic acid in a high, 15% concentration minimizes the amount of free radicals, which are responsible for damaging lipids and proteins, including collagen and elastin fibers, and thus cause faster cell death and progressive skin aging. The product also contains marigold extract — a rich source of flavonoids and carotenoids with antioxidative and antibacterial properties, which promotes the skin healing process. Acerola extract is a source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. It intensifies the anti-radical properties of the product, helps eliminate inflammation, and additionally strengthens blood vessels, thus reducing skin redness. Bisabolol sooths irritated skin and supports its regeneration. The combination of antioxidative and regenerating ingredients in the VITAMIN C SHOT serum makes it highly effective in terms of eliminating free radicals and restoring the skin’s healthy glow. It also perfectly preps the skin for the second step of the treatment.
The RETINOL SHOT mask contains exfoliating retinol. It stimulates a number of skin renewal processes, thus improving its density and elasticity, reducing discolorations, and minimizing the appearance of persistent wrinkles.
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that belongs to a group of compounds called retinoids. Once applied on the skin, it undergoes a number of transformations: first into retinal and, in the final stage, into retinoic acid. After binding with specific receptors in tissues, it activates a cascade of restorative reactions. In the first stage, retinol accelerates the cell renewal process and enables quicker removal of dead structures (corneocytes), which helps improve skin tone and reduce superficial blemishes. Additionally, the stratum basale of the skin is stimulated, so the live layers become thicker. Retinol contained in the RETINOL SHOT mask gradually suppresses the transport of melanin to the upper layers of the epidermis, which means melanocytes (pigment cells) become smaller, ultimately eliminating the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Retinol effectively stimulates fibroblasts, increasing their activity and accelerating cell divisions, thus intensifying the synthesis of proteins, such as type I and II collagen, responsible for making the skin firmer and denser. The vitamin A derivative contained in the mask accelerates fibrillin secretion. Fibrillin is involved in the formation of elastin microfibers which ensure the skin is firm and supple. Retinol has the ability to inhibit the activity of metalloproteinases, specific enzymes activated by UV exposure, among other factors, which degrade skin protein structures and accelerate aging processes. The product also helps stimulate angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels, thus ensuring a better supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Retinol Shot effectively reduces skin inflammation and large pores, which means the skin can regain its healthy glow and even texture.
