Jessicat’s View on Skin Care and Anti-Ageing
I was using Botox at the time and beginning to experiment with the use of filler therapies such as Restalin to replace lost volume in my face. Although I was happy with the effects of Botox, I was not happy with the way the filler therapies made my face look. I felt it gave an unnatural fullness to my features and was taking away the contours that give my face its individual look. I was also using many products that beauticians told me I needed such as high potency vitamin C, products with Retin-A Tretinoin and other anti-ageing skincare that promised to give me firmer, smoother and clearer skin, but did not give me the effects I was hoping for.
The Answer To Thinning Skin
In the lead up to 40, my skin is continuing to improve as I perfect the areas that are still of concern to me. I am finding that good skin takes commitment and a little work, just like keeping the body in shape with a consistent routine of diet and exercise.
To thicken thinning skin and gain the firmer, smoother, softer appearance we are looking for, we need address cellular functionality (a big part of this is raising ATP production) to facilitate increased collagen, elastin, and blood vessel growth.
IN MY EXPERIENCE THIS IS NOT ACHIEVED WITH SKIN CARE PRODUCTS SUCH AS MOISTURISERS AND SERUMS.
So what are the cosmeceuticals and skin care products with active ingredients, and more importantly what can they do for the skin?
Some skin care products such as Retrieve, (containing tretinoin which is the acid form of Vitamin A) facilitate increased cellular turnover which works by regulating the growth and regeneration of the outer layer of the skin, but this will not thicken and lift sagging skin dramatically and will only mildly improve the appearance of the surface of the skin.
Topical skin creams containing endogenous (produced in the body) growth factors are used as cosmeceuticals. A cosmeceutical is a substance that exerts both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits.
Skin creams containing a physiologically balanced mixture of growth factors and other proteins are available and claim to reverse the signs and symptoms of:
-intrinsic skin ageing mediated by the process of natural ageing.
-extrinsic skin ageing mediated by environmental factors.
Although I wanted it to be true when I began using anti-ageing skincare, graduating onto more and more expensive medical-grade products, I discovered I was disappointed time and time again by the lack of effect they had on my skin.
The Jessicat Skin Care System:
Whilst my clients are having treatments that will dramatically change the look of there skin as well as define and lift the overall features of the face, I recommend using the above products to effectively clean, moisturise and protect their skin.
We have listed the products we recommend our clients use as part of a simple and effective skin care routine, inclusive of links for easy purchase online.
Hydrate Gel, comes in a 480ML bottle is rich in sault derived Hyaluronic Acid and is water soluble, so it is absorbed deeply into the skin. This is the only moisturising product that Jessicat uses on her skin other than Sunscreen due to it being high in sault derived Hyaluronic Acid and packed full of anti-oxidants. We provide Hydrate Gel to our clients for $80 per bottle.
An alternative to the cost-effective Hydrate Gel we onsell our clients is to purchase a Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum or gell directly from a compound chemist that will create the product. This will provide the skin with ultimate hydration possible and is far more effective than any Hyaluronic Acid rich serum created by traditional skin care companies. This is due to containing fewer additives and fillers in order to make the product last longer and be produced cheaply. On average this will cost you around $40-$50 per 50gm or $90-$100 per 100gm. We do onsell this product direct to Jessicat clients.
We recommend our clients use the cheap and effective $80 Hydrate Gel we onsell whilst keeping things cheap and easy in order to be able to have the correct number of treatments needed to gain dramatic and long-lasting results. It is then important to purchase the right at-home technologies in order to maintain and build on these results. Only then do we recommend our clients spend extra money on skin care products such as the Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum.
Technologies are able to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin far more dramatically than any skin care product. Why? Because they are able to trigger a powerful healing response within the bodies cells that enables the skin to repair and rebuild, becoming thick, strong and naturally youthful looking once more.
Spend Your Money Systematically
Stop spending your money on skin care you wish would gain you a more youthful look and put it into treatments that actually physically trigger the body into repairing and rebuilding the musculature of the face and skin of the face and body.
In order to provide treatments that achieve dramatic results by rebuilding, lifting and toning the musculature of the face and repair and rebuild thinning skin on the face and body, we must use processes that utilize many technologies that work in harmony with one another, targeting the problem of thinning skin and depleting musculature to reverse the physical effects of ageing.
Seeing is Believing!
The pictures below are just some of the results our clients have gained from our unique treatment processes.

After my clients have achieved the treatment outcomes they want using the powerful effects of our unique treatment processes, I advise them to continue to keep their skin care routine cost effective. Treating the skin with daily Microcurrent therapies that improve the ATP levels within the skin by up to 500% is the very best way to keep the skin looking youthful and will build on the treatment outcomes my clients have already experienced.
We refuse to make 30% of our overall profits from onselling expensive and unnecessary skin care!
When the Hydrate Gel is used in conjunction with the bt-micro it is pushed very deeply into the epidermis, enabling the Hyaluronic Acid within the Hydrate product to penetrate the skin cells more effectively. Every time the device is used on the Serum setting it will lift and tone the skin visually and continue to keep ATP levels high, providing, in my opinion, the very best in at home anti-ageing skincare possible.
Once you have achieved the treatment outcomes you are looking for and are set up with your at-home devices and following a regime of cheap and effective skincare, the rest is up to you!
You have heard the saying Healthy In, Healthy Out? It means that you must look after yourself, keeping your body healthy and strong, consuming foods that help your skin and body look its best and drinking 2-3 Litres of water every day.
Changing these habits is an inexpensive and very effective way to improve the look of your skin dramatically. Drinking 2-3 Litres of water ensures proper hydration to the skin and helps to improve cellar function.
I have included a link for you to follow that will show you just how powerful drinking enough water can be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD6dbwXdeh4
Fish oil is also a very powerful tool for keeping the skin looking its best. In a study published in “The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology” in 2008, omega-3 fatty acids were found to reduce symptoms of rosacea, those red blotchy patches on your skin and inflamed capillaries on your face. Taking fish oil capsules can benefit the look and health of your skin, especially if you have a skin condition like rosacea or eczema. Eating powerful anti-ageing foods such as avocado, blueberries, bananas, and cucumber provide powerful antioxidants that combat the free radicals that attack our body and skin cells through the exposure pollutants in our environment and the stresses of our fast-paced everyday lives. Smoothies are a great way to pack in larger quantities of these kinds of foods as well as creating dense nutrient rich salads. Try using baby spinach leaves instead of lettuce as well as including nuts and seeds in your salads and swap out red meat for a nice piece of salmon once or twice a week. The internet is a powerful tool for finding all the recipes and combinations of foods that will help you not only feed your body effectively but also your skin. Take the power into your hands and have some tastebud-tingling fun as you not only develop your culinary skill but strong healthy skin to boot!
