AnteAge MD Serum Review

AnteAge MD Serum Review
The serums contains a concentrated dose of water soluble actives that flood the skin with the most anti-inflammatory and regenerative ingredients to prime the skin– optimizing the skin's ability to heal, regenerate, and produce quality types of collagen.

Growth Factors & Cytokines

The first ingredient key ingredient found in the Serum are the growth factors and cytokines harvested from the bone marrow stem cell. Growth Factors and Cytokines are found in the Serum at a very high, therapeutic, and efficacious dosage. Growth Factors and Cytokines are the body's natural tools to heal, repair, and regenerate itself. The body has an abundance of these growth factors in its youth, which is why it heals so well in its younger years. As the body ages, however, the amount of growth factors circulating the body declines which causes the body to heal less effectively. When these powerful protein molecules are applied topically, they instruct those skin cells to look and behave like they did in younger years. This process is anti-aging at its finest.

Carnosine

This ingredient aides in reducing anti-glycation end products. This is a body's ability for glucose or sugar molecules to attach to proteins, or in the case of skin, collagen molecules, allowing them to oxidize.

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7

These are two unique peptides composed of chains of amino acids that act as fragments of larger protein molecules– growth factors and cytokines. They have a similar mechanism of action to the Growth Factors and Cytokines as well– They attach to surface receptors on skin cells allowing and instructing that cell to produce a specific biological molecule or protein.

DefenAge Skincare - Revolutionary Technology for Getting Fresh, New Skin

DefenAge Skincare - Revolutionary Technology for Getting Fresh, New Skin
It comes as an extreme surprise to me that there is not more hype around DefenAge products/technology as it has quickly become one of my favorite medical skincare brands throughout my 11 years of managing/ownership in the medical aesthetics field. I believe in 5+ years DefenAge will be in most all medspa & dermatologist offices across the country. Secretly, I like that it is not a big, well-known brand yet because when I suggest it to someone who has never heard of or tried it, they think I’m a magician or a true skincare guru – it has provided such great skin correcting results!

When our owner told us she found a new brand she was obsessed with about a month ago, of course I trusted her skincare expertise.

Salmon Egg Skincare? Restorsea’s One-Of-A-Kind Aquatic Exfoliant

Salmon Egg Skincare? Restorsea’s One-Of-A-Kind Aquatic Exfoliant
Examining the hands of the East Norway salmon hatchery workers you would never believe that they were beyond their 20’s. Their hands, submerged within the salmon water all day long, did not reflect their true older age since they were receiving day-to-day benefits/exfoliation of the enzyme that would later be exclusively patented by Restorsea and called, Aquabeautine XL. The enzyme from the salmon roe demonstrated that it had the ability to correct uneven skin tone, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, increases elasticity, and not cause damage to healthy skin after extensive use.
