The Toll Aging Takes on Your Skin

The Toll Aging Takes on Your Skin

With all of the creams, facials, and treatments on the market that claim to slow the aging process, it’s no wonder that anti-aging is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Yet, it’s not just about glamour and being fabulous. Looking and feeling your best specifically comes down to having more energy and firmer skin. 

Our staff of warm professionals at Wellness Nashville just south of Nashville, Tennessee, is committed to helping you look and feel your best with a variety of treatment options, but our signature service is our NAD drip therapy. Like the anti-aging industry itself, NAD has a number of excellent benefits, and supplementing your skin’s health is one of its best. 

What is NAD? 

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, or NAD, is a molecule naturally produced by our bodies. The purported benefits of increasing NAD levels include increased energy, better sleep, improved immunity, and better metabolism. NAD has even been shown to be effective in treating age-related diseases, metabolic disorders, and mental health issues. Aside from these benefits, the existence of NAD in every cell, including collagen and elastin, helps improve the appearance of your skin.  

What does the aging process do to my skin? 

It’s often discussed how aging affects our vision and hearing, yet no one misses the effect that aging has on our skin. The older we get, the more likely we are to notice signs of aging on our faces, including:

How does this happen? As we age, our skin starts to lose its natural ability to produce and maintain two of its major components: collagen and elastin.

Collagen is a protein that helps the skin maintain its structure, keeping it taut and wrinkle-free. Elastin, another protein, allows the skin to bounce back into place after being tugged or pinched. We lose both collagen and elastin due to age, stress, damage from the sun, and health-compromising habits, like drinking and smoking. 

Can NAD help with my aging skin? 

NAD is an essential molecule in the proteins of the body, including collagen and elastin. NAD is similar to Vitamin B3 in that it optimizes the body’s use of its vitamins and minerals. 

Increasing NAD levels in the body is a natural and effective way of supporting collagen and elastin production, which can protect your skin against environmental damage and the effects of aging. 

I’m interested in starting NAD therapy. 

Before we recommend any therapy to you, we start with a consultation. We go over your medical history, confirm that NAD therapy is appropriate, and review any medical conditions that you may have. No matter your age, ethnicity, or weight, we may have a solution for you. 

If you’re interested in the benefits of NAD therapy, call us at 615-334-0167, or book an appointment online today.
