Simple Solutions for Skin Rejuvenation
- Posted on: Dec 18 2017
You are never too young to start caring for your skin and your appearance. With an objective of maintaining beautiful radiant skin, nourishing and protecting your skin every day from a very young age will help to ward off the deterioration in the smoothness, firmness, tone and pigmentation of your skin. This not only means using a sunblock of SPF60 or higher starting in childhood, but also in later years using a medically-effective skin care line. As we age, there are a series of physiological changes that our skin goes through as collagen production is reduced, our skin thins out and we lose some of the fat in our cheeks. Environmental factors and habits also impact the quality of our skin and appearance – sun, stress and smoking are the culprits of wrinkle formation and destruction of the intracellular matrix that keeps our skin “juicy”.
More and more men and women are spending time and money to improve their appearance as evidenced by a recent study, which estimated that over $60 billion was spent on cosmetic treatments in 2016. This is no surprise, since it is a well-known fact that a vibrant appearance can have a positive impact, for both men and women, in their social and professional lives. Depending on your age, appearance and condition of your skin, there are a full spectrum of solutions available, ranging from scientific skin care for home use on one side, through non-invasive and minimally invasive energy-based procedures, to actual cosmetic surgery on the other end of the spectrum. What is appropriate for each individual’s needs is something that requires an in-depth consultation with a qualified and certified professional, for example, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist who is well versed in the full spectrum of treatment modalities and medical skin care. Seeking a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to advise you rather than a general doctor or nurse, is similar to having your electrical advice given to you by a licensed electrician, and not by a construction specialist such as a plumber.
An Outstanding New Skin Care Treatment: DefenAge™
One of the first sets of solutions for skin rejuvenation involves penetrating below the skin and working at the cellular level, where the health and beauty of your skin begin. A fresh glowing face is a sign of good health and vitality. One of the newest innovations in skin care is DefenAge™. Created by a Russian Ph.D., DefenAge™ is a combination of three products designed to unlock the skin’s ability to rejuvenate itself through stem cells. Adult stem cells are found in many parts of the body such as the brain, bone marrow, fat, teeth, skin and hair follicles. Adult stem cells regenerate themselves naturally under specific circumstances
The scientists at DefenAge™ have identified how to unlock the key to youth with powerful, synthetically produced messenger peptides called Age-Repair Defensins™. These patent-pending peptides are the FIRST of their kind and available EXCLUSIVELY in DefenAge™ skincare. Age-Repair Defensins™ are an age-correcting discovery, transported in a special liposome system. Combined with specially selected skincare ingredients to create an ideal bio-environment, skin rejuvenates its appearance NATURALLY and EFFECTIVELY.
Most interesting is the fact that those stems cells that sit on top of our hair follicles are responsible for the formation of our skin in the womb. After birth, they return to a state of dormancy and are only called upon to create new skin cells when stimulated. The messenger peptides (called Defensins™ in DefenAge™) act to stimulate these stem cells to create new baby skin cells in the base layer of the skin rather than using other outside growth factors.
How Defensins™ Work
Patients use a special Balance Cream and an “8 in 1” BioSerum twice a day and a 2-Minute Reveal Masque twice a week. In a six-week clinical study of participants ages 48 to 68 using this regimen, DefenAge™ caused the skin to appear younger by 18 years on average per group. Participants realized an overall improvement in skin evenness (a global measurement of the skin surface roughness including pore and wrinkle size and the even or coarse texture of the skin) as measured using QuantifiCare™ Clinical Imaging System as compared to QuantifiCare’s Reference Population Database of normal aging skin for that age group.
Dr. Petropoulos noticed the results* personally with two senior and esteemed plastic surgery colleagues that she had not seen for some time. Dr. Petropoulos participated on an expert Panel on Thermi with Dr. DiBernardo and she did not see him again until seven months later at another panel at the annual Las Vegas Cosmetic Surgery Conference. She noticed that his jawline was significantly tighter, the texture of his skin was likened to baby skin, and the fine wrinkles had been dramatically reduced. It was clear to Dr. Petropoulos that it was not a result of surgery nor laser. When asked what he had done, Dr. DiBernado indicated that he had been asked to be a test subject for the DefenAge™ regimen – the results were dramatic. Another senior colleague, who attended the annual Las Vegas Cosmetic Surgery meeting also looked years younger. As a red head with previously thin skin, her skin had always tended to show fine lines and wrinkles along with brown spots. Again, DefenAge™ had made a dramatic difference, creating baby skin for her as well.
