We are proud to feature a revolutionary epigenetic anti-aging face treatment at Koru Wellness Aesthetics. The Age Element Face Treatment is a relaxing, non-invasive face treatment that utilizes epigenetic technology to combat aging from its origin. The professional treatment acts by modulating epigenetic mechanisms to recover the regenerating and proliferating activity of the skin. The steps include a brief consultation, professional cleanse to prepare your skin, a gentle resurfacing solution to stimulate renewal and regeneration, a facial massage with customized Age Element balm, and alternating masques to increase the efficacy of the ingredients. The treatment corrects the visible signs of aging and provides a firmer, brighter and visibly younger skin.
What is the Age Element system?
Epigenetics covers the study of all chemical processes and reactions that modify DNA activity without modifying its sequence. “The genome has the instructions for our body: the epigenome allows interpretation of them.” Epigenetics defines how and to what degree genes must be expressed, facilitating or avoiding access to the “DNA instructions” to be translated.
Epigenetics: exposomes and aging
Aging is a complex, multifactorial process that depends on intrinsic and extrinsic factors (exposomes). Lifestyle and environment-dependent external factors favor the activation of epigenetic markers, becoming the main catalysts of aging. Understanding the language that encodes epigenetic mechanisms, which can regulate an adequate gene expression, is key to
prevent and reverse aging.
Environmental conditions, experiences and lifestyle are the main activators of epigenetic mechanisms, while also promoting and accelerating the main visible signs of age. The latest scientific advances are designed to act on these epigenetic changes and resynchronize the natural processes of skin protection and repair.
How does the Age Element system work?
The meso[epigen] system™ complex promotes cell regeneration mechanisms, enhances the production of essential proteins and longevity of cells and activates the “switch” that provides the skin with functions and elements that are lost with age to recover youth.
Shikimik acid – Increases Cell Longevity
SIRT1 prolongs cell longevity, improves the response to oxidative stress and is involved in DNA protection processes through an epigenetic mechanism: chemical modification of histones.
Maslinic acid – Protects DNA
[meso]epigen system™ avoids the telomere shortening caused by oxidative stress.
Isoquercetin – Improves Cell Performance
Isoquercetin stimulates proteins such as VMP1 that are important in the cell autophagy process, whereby toxic materials that can damage cells are removed.
What are the Age Element Boosters?
The Age Element boosters are used during the customized contribution phase and are chosen by
your skincare provider based on the degree of aging and visible signs of age in your skin. Your treatment can be customized with one or up to all four boosters.
- Revitalizing concentrate that moisturizes the skin and reduces visibly imperfections
- Brightening, revitalizing concentrate
- Moisturizes the skin and visibly reduces imperfections and expression lines

The Age Element Face Treatment covers all 5 essential steps of an anti-aging treatment:
Step 1 – Diagnosis: analysis the variables involved in the skin aging process, and defines a
customized protocol for each client
Step 2 – Preparation: cleansing and make-up removal phase.
Step 3 – Stimulation: phase of renewal to enhance epidermal regeneration and optimize
penetration of the active ingredients applied subsequently.
Step 4 – Activation: customized contribution phase based on the degree of aging and visible
signs of age in the skin. Enhances radiance and firmness. Reduces wrinkles and provides density.
Step 5 – Boosting: customized boosting phase to provide extra supplemental active ingredients
to those used in the activation phase.
Age Element Face Treatment by Koru
The treatment starts with a brief consultation and evaluation of your skin and skin goals. We then
proceed to a professional cleanse to remove impurities. Next, a gentle resurfacing solution
chemical peel is applied to prepare the skin and stimulate epidermal regeneration. The solution is
a combination of AHAs and BHAs: glycolic, maslinic, salicylic and mandelic acid to reduce
imperfections, improve texture and enhance skin radiance. The next step includes a relaxing
facial massage with a balm customized with boosters targeted for your skin condition and skin
goals. Lastly, enjoy a custom professional face masque that helps to boost the activation of the
targeted active ingredients while you experience a relaxing scalp and hand massage. The face
masques alternate between a firming and tightening masque and a hydrating antioxidant masque
when done as part of the optimal treatment regimen. Your treatment is then finished with custom
skincare for the rest of your day. Extractions may be added on as an enhancement; they are not
included in this age-management face treatment. This treatment is NOT recommended for
anyone pregnant or nursing. All prices + sales tax; no gratuity accepted.
