Does Slow CRF Make The Skin Look Older?

The CRF (cell renewal factor) is what keeps cells from building up. Cell renewal refers to the time required for newly formed cells to move from the base of the epidermis, where they are formed, to the surface, where they are sloughed off. This process slows down with age. The average rate of cell turnover for:

Babies, 14 days

Teenagers, 21 -28 days

Middle Aged People, 28 – 42 days

50 and Older, 42 – 84 days

The longer the process takes, the more apt the skin is to develop a dull, drab appearance. This slow cell transit can also adversely affect the barrier function of the stratum corneum so the skin loses moisture more rapidly and is thus more likely to become overly dry.

The process of removing excess accumulations of dead cells from the corneum layers of the epidermis can be accomplished mechanically (micro exfoliation), manually (scrubs), or chemically (peels). After treatment, skin looks and feels smoother and softer. The complexion is more radiant, youthful and healthy looking.


Peels improve the texture of the skin and increase the CRF, hydration, barrier function, moisture retention, elastin and collagen production.

Micro exfoliation benefits to the epidermis are similar to those provided by peels, except the effects are only on the top of the epidermis.

With a clinical treatment plan you can speed up CRF, dramatically improve skin health and achieve the glowing, radiant complexion you desire.
