Fountain of Youth Face Cream Released by Acclaimed Plastic Surgeon

Posted: 6th April 2017 09:06
Dr. John Zannis, creator of Rinnova Skincare by John Zannis, MD, says, "There is no fountain of youth, but our goal with Renaissance, was to get as close as possible."  The entire philosophy surrounding Rinnova Skincare is to heal and restore the skin to a healthier state and appearance as quickly as possible, and to protect it from further damage in the future.

"We created every product with the concept that nature's secrets augmented by scientific discoveries can be combined to produce truly effective products that feel great to use," says Zannis.  With an instant anti-aging formula, a few key ingredients are needed:  heavily moisturizing actives, antioxidants, and peptides.  Here are three of the more powerful ingredients in Rinnova Skincare's special moisturizer formula:

Sodium Hyaluronate - an excellent emollient humectant that moisturizes, lubricates and soothes the skin.  By improving the hydration of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles instantly erase.  This is the same concept behind dermal fillers which plump up creases and wrinkles in the facial skin.

Vitamins E, C & A - Antioxidants like vitamins E and C are critical to protecting the skin from free radical damage caused by the environment (UV radiation, chemical pollutants) and certain lifestyle choices (smoking, drinking).  Vitamin C is elemental in the production of collagen, which is what skin is made of.

Peptides - chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin.  They are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function.  When collagen breaks down in the skin, wrinkles form.  Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and you develop the appearance of more youthful, supple skin. Neuropeptides like the ones in the Renaissance moisturizing cream can relax facial muscles, therefore reducing the appearance of wrinkles, similar to the actions of BOTOX.

Dr. Zannis is a best-selling author and board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and is also the author of Body Contouring without Surgery (2015).  He is the founder of the Zannis Center for Plastic Surgery in New Bern, NC and the president of Rinnova Skincare by John Zannis, MD.
