Face Aging with the Science of Beauty – Rachel Varga – #668
By: Dave Asprey
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, the topic of skin gets to shine. Caring for your largest organ can take many forms. What’s right for you could range from skincare to rejuvenation procedures to lasers or light therapies. It’s all about your individual aging goals.
In this judgment-free show, I talk with skin rejuvenation and anti-aging expert Rachel Varga, BScN, RN, CANS. She’s been a Board Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist since 2011. She’s an international clinical trainer, speaker, podcaster, and academically published award-winning author in the field of plastic and aesthetic nursing.
Through education on skin care, rejuvenation procedures, non-surgical solutions, and healing lifestyle practices, Rachel helps inspire others with her unique toolkit. “It’s all about the science of beauty, and it’s half art, half science,” she says. She helps people optimize aging through aesthetic medicine.
Understanding the biological happenings and the underlying science of again can help you decide what to do about it—if anything. “Three facets—the changes in the skin, the bone, and the fat—are really some of the key players that result in facial sagging and everything kind of going downwards,” Rachel says.
Listen on to learn practical tips about product safety, treatments to avoid, and how you can choose the skin rejuvenation options that match how you want to age.
