How do Stem Cells Work?
Ask any beauty expert about the latest skincare innovations and he/she will likely bring up stem cells in the conversation. They’ve also probably seen some of the ingredients show up in various serums and skin creams. But how do stem cells help your skin look young and refreshed? We’re here to answer your burning questions by taking a closer look at the ingredients so you can make the most informed decision.
According to the California Stem Cell Agency, researchers in the medical profession have studied how stem cells can treat chronic diseases by regenerating cells in the body. Lifeline Skin Care has studied stem cells for their anti-age fighting properties. This has resulted in them delivering products with strong results in the cosmetic industry.
There are two very distinct reasons stem cells are different from other cells in our bodies. First, they can be influenced into performing other functions. Secondly, they have the ability to renew themselves. Stem cells, for those reasons, have become crucial to biological research on treating certain diseases. These regenerative properties have become staples in many scientific labs across the world.
Research has also shown that skin products containing stem cells actually boost collagen production and stimulate cell turnover. By applying Lifeline Skin Care lotion, for example, the application stimulates the growth of more stem cells. Aging causes cells to go into a state of dormancy. This topical stem cell lotion can awaken and duplicate them.
What Happens to Our Skin Cells as We Age?
If you’ve ever noticed how youngsters or even newborns heal quickly from scratches or cuts, then you’ve seen stem cells doing their work. Most of these injuries heal overnight. As we get older, damage to our skin from injuries take longer to heal.
A small scratch or bruise can take anywhere from five days to over a week to properly vanish in the older crowd. Also, just by stepping outside into the South Texas heat, our skin is susceptible to damage from UV rays and environmental toxins. Basically, skin renewal starts to decrease as we get older and your once-healthy-looking skin starts to lose its youthful glow.
Peptides, proteins and other nutrient-rich factors are the engines behind skin repair. They’re responsible for proliferation, cellular growth and repair. Healthy skin structures and functions are the result of all of these factors coming together to protect the skin. They’re immediately dispatched at the first sign of a wound or any kind of skin damage. The reproduction of collagen and increase of healthy tissues are just a few other benefits of these nutrients. Ultimately, they all come together to make your skin look younger and healthier by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Is There Any Natural Way of Getting the Same Effect?
There has been talk in the medical community of plant stem cells producing some kind of benefit to human skin. It’s important to note that plants do have stem cells located in their meristems that help leaves grow faster, among other things. Yet, the jury is still out on whether plant stem cells actually stimulate human stem cells to grow.
According to Ronald L. Moy, MD, former president of the American Academy of Dermatology, “While there’s evidence that human stem cells, when harnessed with growth factors, stimulate epidermal stem cells to thicken skin, which leads to tightening, there is no scientific evidence that plant stem cell growth factors work in the same way.”
Lifeline Skin Care Products
With the use of Lifeline’s Skin Care products, stem cell extract can increase anywhere from 42 to 55%. The key ingredient in Lifeline’s stem cell extract is elastin. It’s responsible for keeping the skin smooth, firm and tight. Lifeline’s products have helped increase elastin by up to 46%.
Helping Produce New Skin Cells
When skin gets damaged, stem cells divide to help bring its natural glow back. As we age, this process slows down. Lifeline’s stem cell extract helps increase epidermal growth factors (EGF) by 436%. This helps in the production of new skin cells.
Helping Repair Damaged Tissue
Keratinocyte growth factors (KGF), which help stimulate cellular proliferation to damaged skin, increased 58% with Lifeline. Wound-healing fibroblast growth factors (FGF), which play an important task in repairing damaged tissue, can be increased to 200% with Lifeline’s stem cell extract.
