There is joy to celebrating your age and embracing your appearance for what it is. But for those who want to see a better version of themselves, either because of their jobs or simply because of personal desire, science can give a helping hand. After all, if science can make us live longer and healthier, it certainly can make all of us live more beautiful lives.
And it doesn't have to be painful. Between a no surgery wrinkle treatment and a non surgical face lift, anyone can achieve skin rejuvenation and look more youthful subtly and naturally. Here's how.
Plant stem cells
Plant stem cells are undifferentiated cells found in the growing tips of roots and shoots of a plant that have the ability to self-renew and repair other plant cells. They are responsible for a plant's new growth of leaves season after season.
In skincare, plant stem cells stimulate the regenerative capability of our own stem cells and protect human skin cells so they live longer. This is what makes Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum with Plant Stem Cells from Dr Sylvia Skin Care potent enough to make you look 10 years younger in 42 days.
Dr Sylvia Skin Care is a highly trusted brand developed in a Singapore aesthetic clinic that also offers evidence-based services customized to each patient’s needs.
Containing clinically-proven plant stem cells from Malus domestica (apple), gardenia and Centella asiatica (gotu kola), Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum stimulates new collagen formation and prevents collagen degradation, resulting to reduced wrinkle depth and fewer wrinkles.
Needle-free collagen and elastin filler
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that are used to remove fine lines and lift sagging skin due to volume loss caused by aging. However, for those who are not yet ready for a filler or wants a softer and 'needle-free' approach in reducing fine lines, they can benefit from using Needles No More Serum with Neodermyl and Voluform.
Neodermyl is an anti-aging ingredient known as “needle-free elastin” and collagen treatment that results to 15% wrinkle depth reduction and a more elastic skin based on clinical studies.
Combine it with Voluform, another anti-aging ingredient which not only targets wrinkles but also restores volume in the cheeks, and you get firmer skin with fewer creases. Voluform accomplishes this by targeting adipocytes (fat cells) to enhance cellular volume and firmness.
Needles No More can be layered on top of Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum before applying moisturizer.
Antioxidants have been around the anti aging industry for a long time, and remain highly safe and effective treatment against oxidative stress that results to various signs of aging skin. Some of the most potent antioxidants occurring naturally are vitamin C and E, which work synergistically to improve each of the vitamin's free radical-fighting effects.
In particular, vitamin C is a vital molecule to collagen synthesis and combats aging caused by UV-induced sun damage. Because natural vitamin C has a short shelf-life, it is stabilized by ferulic acid, a serum with its own depigmenting properties.
Vitamin E not only strengthens vitamin C's antioxidant properties but also protects the skin from scarring and age spots.
To boost the collagen regeneration ability of vitamin C, your anti aging serum should contain vitamin B5. Not only does it improve the hydration levels in the skin, but also accelerates its natural healing process. You also need niacin or vitamin B3 to lighten dark spots and prevent the movement of pigment from the basal layer of the epidermis to the topmost layer. Even better, niacin boosts the whitening potential of vitamin C.
All of these active ingredients you can find in one of the best anti-aging product in the market today: Vitamin C, B, E Serum with Ferulic Acid. It’s a medical grade anti-aging serum developed by Dr Sylvia Ramirez, a Harvard-educated skin care specialist in Orchard, Singapore.
