Exosomes are a next generation subdermal treatment which is based on stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is centred around triggering more effective processes within existing cells. Exosomes are naturally released from cells, and help communicate genetic information, growth factors and proteins, while activating cells to work more efficiently. Providing powerful skin regeneration, Exosomes have the power to repair damaged and scarred skin, as well as improve the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation. And with anti-inflammatory effects, it is also highly effective as a treatment for eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, and psoriasis. Exosome therapy can also be used to improve thinning hair and other scalp conditions. This is super impressive scientific breakthrough stuff in the worlds of regenerative, restorative and aesthetic medicine. Watch this space!
In recent years, the holy grail of skin therapy is how to activate collagen production within the body. Several physical treatments are able to do this such as laser treatments or chemical peels but Lanluma is a brand new formulation which promises a highly effective boost from your own natural collagen process. An injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulant, Lanluma increases fullness and adds volume to both the face and very excitingly the body too, providing plumping and firming plus indigenous correction of deep lines or larger body divets. Excellent for smoothing out body cellulite, finally an actual solution to this previously, seemingly insolvable phenomenon! Lanluma treatment is virtually painless, with results appearing gradually over several months and effects often lasting more than two years.
As the name implies, this trend combines nutrition and cosmetics, with ingredients based on things that are usually introduced through nutrition and food. The name is new, but the practice is ancient. Even Cleopatra would bathe in goat’s milk, the lactic acid is great for making skin firmer and plumper. The popularity of ingredients changes as research into their efficacy for topical application grows. Vitamin C for example, is one of the current must-have ingredients, promoting healthy, radiant skin and improving skin pigmentation. If you’re interested in nutricosmetics, try a chemical peel, as these contain various acids and vitamins designed to nourish your skin and bring out your natural glow.
