Stabilization prevents acquired sensitivity to treatment while increasing the skin’s resistance to negative external and/or internal factors by repairing and maintaining normal cellular functions in both the epidermis and dermis. 

 

Epidermal Stabilization

 

Dermal Stabilization

 

Example

To understand the concept of stabilization, consider the person who becomes stronger and fitter through exercise and a healthy diet. They can perform routine tasks easier, recover faster after disease and injury, live longer and enjoy a better quality of life. Similarly, skin can become more tolerant and stronger if provided with the best nutrients and conditions. Such skin will actively renew itself, heal faster after injury or disease, remain younger looking and function at its peak.*
