Facial Aging and Stem Cells
Updated: Mar 30
What is so great about this product and why are bone marrow stem cells better than other types of growth factors?
The globally recognized definition of aging is the progressive accumulation of damage at the cellular level. A lifetime of tiny injuries eventually reshapes your face causing lines, wrinkles, and pigment. Eighty percent of the damage comes from the sun. It then comes from environmental toxins, certain ingredients used in skincare products, and most importantly the quality of our food. Our bodies do their best to rid of these harmful toxins and try to replenish any accumulating wear and tear. As we get older, the process slows down and our bodies no longer can reduce the damage.
The top layer of the skin (epidermis) starts to:
Cells lose their ability to shed dead skin.
The ability to absorb the much-needed nutrients, as well as oxygen and maintain a healthy blood flow is greatly diminished.
Collagen and elastin, the brick and mortar of our skin start to break down.
Skin collapses while lines, wrinkles, pigment, and inflammation begin to show, and the aging process begins.
Being aware of what we put into our mouths can greatly reduce inflammation in our bodies. This chronic inflammation rears its ugly head with redness, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne, stomach issues, and at its very worst, sickness and disease. When it becomes chronic it goes down to the cellular level where it can no longer repair itself. This is one type of inflammation and understanding that food is medicine is the best prevention. Our health is our vitality which gives us the energy to live our lives to the fullest which prolongs a youthful appearance.
Then we have “controlled” inflammation, which occurs when microneedling and other aesthetic treatments such as peels, microdermabrasion, and lasers cause inflammation that produces collagen. This type of inflammation is a prerequisite for the production of collagen and elastin. Along with using stem cells with microneedling, we are able to get to the root of the aging process at the cellular level where it all begins.
When participating in regular microneedling (with added stem) at least three to four times a year as well as incorporating growth factors into your daily routine, you will be amazed at what a difference these stem cells can make.
Stem cells are like conductors. Not only do they go around repairing aging cells but they also make all of the other products work in synergy.
Which products do you say?
Anti-oxidants (Vitamin C)
Retinol (Vitamin A)
They also work to strengthen your sunscreen
These are all scientifically proven products that improve, protect, and rejuvenate the skin. Along with adding growth factors, it is truly a fait accompli!
By microneedling, these bone marrow growth factors begin to wrap themselves around the damaged cells, giving off proteins and other nutrients that renew and replenish the aging cells.
These growth factors make all of the other non-negotiable products such as peptides, retinoids, and antioxidants work much more effectively, coming together to create a scientifically proven cocktail for cellular regeneration.
Where do the stem cells come from?
FYI - not all stem cells are alike and you should know the difference. These stem cells do not come from embryos. They are derived from bone marrow, which is considered the most intelligent stem cells because they can actually take damaged malnourished aging cells, repair, regenerate, and revitalize to its original youthful condition.
They are taken from paid donors (young women between the ages of 18-25) who go through a vigorous health screening process. These cells are stored in a regulated bone marrow bank and then cultured in a broth with the most beneficial nutrients for the skin.
It has been scientifically proven that most other growth factors create inflammation, not calm it.
Examples of these would be:
Plant stem cells are considered botanicals and because they are derived from plants, they cannot command a human stem cell - we are not plants. A microneedling treatment with growth factors imbeds them deep into the skin where they can divide and multiply, going after the damaged and aging cells to regenerate to a new, fresh, youthful cell. In summation, growth factors are used in all types of regenerative medicine and have worked wonders! This breakthrough for skincare is truly a game-changer and an add on for anyone that wants to put their best face forward. Aging skin has hope!
