Kallgren Dermatology in Boulder is proud to give individual attention to each of our patients. We sell a number of products that help our patients and that we stand behind. One such product is the line of CeraVe SA product. We recommend this product to anyone who cares about youthful looking skin.

Ceramide Production

As time marches on, the aging process manifests itself in small ways. The body slows or stops the production of certain types of cells that have kept us young looking. One of these cell types is a ceramide. A ceramide is a bio-active cell in our skin. It performs an essential role in the structure and protection of the skin. It is found in the stratum corneum layer of the skin.

Stratum Corneum

The stratum corneum is the layer of the skin that acts as the waterproofing of the deeper layers of skin. This layer protects the deeper layers from dirt, chemicals and physical damage.  

Ceramide Loss

As you grow older, ceramide production slows down. By the time you are 60, production has slowed so much that the structure of your skin is 30% thinner. We’ve all seen older people whose skin looks thin and paper like. That is the end result of the loss of ceramides. But you can do something about it!

Ceramide Supplements

Besides being able to take ceramides orally, modern technology has made it possible to apply them topically as well. CeraVe’s secret is the Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE®) composition of its cream. This is a fancy way of saying it is a time release cream.

CeraVe SA

This renewing cream has ceramides as well as salicylic acid that aids in the removal of the rough upper layer of skin, leaving your skin looking replenished and young.
