What In The World Is A Stem Cell And What Can It Do For My Skin?
The last few years in beauty has brought some seriously fantastic products to the market. We’ve known about Retin A’s benefits for over 25 years now and even Antioxidant knowledge has been percolating for some time. The newest player in age reduction is most certainly stem cells, also known as growth factors. This new class of topical serums has seriously shaken up the market and truly reversed or stopped the aging process on many faces. Quite frankly, if you only chose to put one product on your face to improve many facets of your skin, this would be the one I would choose.
Stem Cells That Heal The Body Turn Into Anti-Aging Products
Stem cell and growth factor products originated in the medical world as a way to quickly repair serious burns, deep wounds and ulcerated skin on the body. Human stem cells could actually heal the skin significantly faster with far less scarring and permanent skin damage. But in the process of finding this they also noticed a significant reduction in how old the skin tissue looked afterwards, additionally a boost in collagen and tightness of the skin. Due to this breakthrough, the cosmetic world jumped on board.
Now instead of boring you to death with a full explanation of how stem cells reduce aging, why don’t you check out a little video explanation:
Benefits Of Stem Cells
Stem cells have more benefits than just reducing wrinkles. When you are topically replacing your dead cells with healthy, rejuvenated stem cells, you see significant benefits to all parts of your skin. Specifically you will see:
- Reduction in redness of complexion, it even significantly reduces Rosacea issues
- Significant reduction in acne of all types
- Reduction in pigmentation including melasma and age spots
- Reduction in texture problems such as bumps and razor burn issues
- Provides a youthful luminosity to the skin
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Refreshes collagen and elastin
- Helps maintain smooth skin texture
- Replenishes skin’s natural stores of proteins to sustain a youthful, firm appearance
Stem Cell Product Selection Is Critical
If you search for stem cell products you will find a multitude of options. I think it’s critical to clear up that research shows that only In Vitro and Adult Stem Cell products deliver clinical results. You will find many inexpensive Plant Stem Cell products, but study after study proves little to no effectiveness. The down side to this is that you will definitely pay a higher cost to find a quality product, the upside is that they work very well. Over time I have found my personal favorites, products that actually do what they say they can do. Here is the only 3 that I truly recommend:
Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuvenation Serum
Personally I have found the Jeunesse product to be both highly effective and at a great price point. It is literally $50-120 less in cost than it’s closest competitor. With over 200 growth factors, it is loaded and effective. It will not break out your skin (it actually works amazing on acne as well.) It is the serum that I have switched to personally and the compliments that I have been getting on face lately verify it’s effectiveness. To use this product, simply wash your face and apply it immediately after, followed by the rest of whatever regimen you choose. If you’re interested in testing a week’s worth of this product, simply email me and I can get some to you to try. You can definitely see a difference in just a week of use!

PS Jeunesse actually has a Stem Cell lotion for the body that is fantastic too. How about improving ALL your skin? Check it out here…
SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
TNS was my “go-to” growth factor product for more than 5 years. The way this product was developed was absolutely revolutionary. Created from infant stem cells, they claim the purest version of growth factors available on the market. Advantages to this product are not just the stem cell base but all the additional anti-aging products built into it. It includes antioxidants, peptides, a skin brightener, a pigment remover and hylauronic acid to plump the skin. If you are super low maintenance and want a product that will do it all, this is the one you should get. It’s down side is cost, because of all that is built into it you will pay a pretty penny for it. But it definitely works and I have many customers using it. For more information click here…. but please don’t buy it from this website, we sell it much cheaper in my office!
Neocutis Intensive Anti-Aging Serum
Neocutis is the final company I recommend to get a quality stem cell product. Effective growth factors and potent strength makes this an excellent runner up in the race for a good product. It is also infused with an algae extract (a personal favorite of mine) and hylauranic acid to plump this skin. I definitely recommend it as an alternative to the other 2 products. It has a hefty price point but you will definitely see a difference in your skin if you use this. Read more about it here…
On a side note, Neocutis makes by far the best stem cell product for the eye area. I highly recommend either the Neocutis Lumiere or Lumiere Riche product over any other eye cream on the market. See more about them here…
I expect this technology to only improve with time. I’ll do my best to keep you updated with it’s progress. For now these products are the best on the market.
