Regenerative medicine in action: Age-Repair Defensins turn the table on facial aging

(BPT) – While injectables like fillers and botulinum toxins, energy-based devices and cosmetic surgery can soften wrinkles, improve skin tone and increase your supply of collagen, the right skincare can do all of that plus more, but without any downtime.

The principles of regenerative medicine are now being harnessed in topical skin care products that can hit the rewind button for your skin’s aging. By using a highly targeted skincare system consistently, you can regain a more youthful complexion in as little as six weeks.

The DefenAge three-step system reverses aging from the inside out by waking up the skin’s master stem cells, aka LGR6-positive stem cells.

Proprietary Age-Repair Defensins, a patent-pending peptide complex, activates the dormant reserve of ‘fresh’ LGR6-positive stem cells. Once activated, these potent stem cells migrate into the skin’s uppermost layer and form the skin’s barrier, which protects it from external threats, prevents moisture loss and creates younger, fresher-looking skin.

Many other skin care products rely on retinol to produce anti-aging benefits which, while effective, can cause irritation and sun sensitivity.

According to Nashville, Tennessee, dermatologist Dr. Natalie Curcio, M.P.H., ‘The DefenAge system relies solely on Age-Repair Defensins, so it offers the same benefits as retinol minus the potential side effects. In a recent clinical study, participants who used the DefenAge system, which includes the 2-Minute Reveal Masque, the 24/7 Barrier Balance Cream and an 8-in-1 BioSerum, had smaller-looking pores, fewer wrinkles, reduced oiliness and improved skin tone, texture, brightness and hydration after just six weeks.’

These findings appeared in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD). ‘The clinical study results showed that the defensin-containing trio of products from DefenAge offer most of the advantages of time-honored retinols as well as newer but widely used growth-factor containing cosmeceuticals, without irritation, inflammation or sun-sensitivity,’ says the study’s co-investigator, Dr. Vivian Bucay, a dermatologist in San Antonio, Texas. ‘The clinical results put DefenAge Skincare into the best-in-class category for age-reversing skincare. This truly is a landmark product,’ she adds.

DefenAge is exclusively available through leading physicians and select medical spas across the U.S.
