We have all seen the difference good skin care can make on our face, but can it really help our bodies? Thin, crepey skin is one of the most common complaints among patients as we begin to age. Although the crepe-like appearance is caused by factors similar to wrinkles, it tends to affect a larger surface area of the skin. It is common along the inner arms, above the knees, inner thighs, and on the lower portion of the abdomen. This condition is largely caused by sun damage as well as dehydration, loss of elasticity, and weight loss.

 UV rays break down elastin and collagen in the skin. Once this framework is disrupted, the skin is left with loose, thin, and a wrinkled appearance. Aging is an unavoidable process in life and, unfortunately, is also a major cause of dull, inelastic skin.  Not only does it reduce the body’s natural ability to form new collagen but less oil is produced which is important to lock in moisture. Hormonal changes reduce estrogen in the skin which results in thin and lackluster looking skin. There are several treatments that have been recommended over the years to help combat this unwanted appearance. 

Dr. Rodgers has tried nearly every product on the market over her 30+ years in practice. She can confidently say that she has noticed improvements in her own skin with the help of Bodifirm’s revolutionary ingredients. This product was designed particularly for the skin on the body as it is vastly different from the skin on the face, neck, and chest. A blend of antioxidants, peptides, botanical extracts, and prebiotics target the body’s DEJ (dermal-epidermal junction) which is responsible for collagen and elastin production. 

Bodifirm helps to firm, tighten, and lift the appearance of loose and aging skin. It provides a visual overall brightening and strengthening of thin, crepey skin particularly around the elbows, inner arms, and above the knee. Hydration and tightening  of sun damaged skin improves as a result of increasing the barrier of the skin to environmental damage. In a 12-week clinical study, 97% of users showed improvement in skin crepiness, 90% revealed an increase in skin elasticity, 83% exhibited a rejuvenation of sagging of skin, and 83% displayed a reduction of  pigmentation in sun damaged skin. Application is recommended 2 times a day until you reach a desired level of improvement and then application can be dropped down to once daily. 

Patients who have recently undergone liposuction can benefit greatly as this will help keep their skin tight and toned. Mothers who  have noted loss of their skin tone and elasticity as a result of pregnancy changes in their skin have used this product with amazing results.  Anyone who has experienced thinner skin due to aging or the causes noted above will benefit from all that Bodifirm has to offer. Bodifirm was recently announced as the 2020 NEWBEAUTY Award winner, and we know why!
