BOOSTING STEM CELLS’ ACTIVITY IS THE SECRET TO YOUNGER-LOOKING SKIN
In today’s world nobody wants to look their age anymore and many people seek to restore their skin’s natural beauty.
What is unique about Dr LEVI Switzerland’s® New Intense Stem Cell Line is that his Booster Cream and Serum are the World’s first cosmetics to have scientifically been proven in vitro to activate and vitalize both epidermal and dermal skin cells.
Skin stem cells have unique anti ageing properties, since they renew themselves as well as repair, replace and regenerate damaged skin. Cells are like a time machine; they not only remember their youth, but can actually go back in time. The potential is in your cells; all they need is a gentle wake-up call.
This is what French scientists successfully proved in 2011, when they turned age-worn skin cells in people over 90 – including a centenarian – into rejuvenated stem cells indistinguishable from those in embryos. Not only did they prove that ageing is reversible, but they demonstrated that the key to turn back time was already present within our own cells.
For decades, skin specialists have considered dermal stem cells to be the Holy Grail to stop – and reverse – skin aging. This is because dermal stem cells are the mother cells of fibroblasts, the skin’s natural factory of those essential anti-wrinkle fighters; collagen & elastin.
Yet, treating dermal stem cells remained a dream until 2009 when their “reservoirs” were finally discovered by a team of Canadian scientists.
With this discovery, Dr. Phillip Levy knew he now had at his reach the tools necessary to revolutionize anti-aging skin treatments, the same way Botox® and pain-free hyaluronic acid transformed aesthetic medicine.
Donation of £10,000 to be used to save lives in Tanzania
Healthxchange and the ASC pledges to help Tumaini Fund
Tumaini Fund founder Dr Susan Wilson and Healthxchange Pharmacy’s chairman Dr John Curran, accompanied by the other directors shake on the deal which will see the charity receive £10,000 this year and next. It will be used to train Tanzanian orphans to become primary school teachers and dispensers.
ORPHANS in Tanzania will be trained to become primary schoolteachers and medical professionals after a donation of £10,000 to the Tumaini Fund from The Aesthetic Skin Clinic and the Healthxchange Pharmacy.
Dr John Curran, chairman of the Healthxchange and lead physician at the ASC has been working with Dr Susan Wilson, the founder of the Tumaini Fund, on how the money would be spent.
It will award a further £10,000 to the charity next year.
Dr Wilson said she was grateful to the company because essentially it would prevent children from dying.
‘This year we have been able to send 8,000 orphans to secondary school and that is in a region where only 7% of young people can access it.
‘We have set up sustainable funds for those who have finished their secondary education to now train to become either primary school teachers or dispensers,’ she said.
‘Dispensers are partly GPs and partly pharmacists and can treat things such as malaria, but they are not qualified doctors.
‘Both of these jobs are very much needed in the area and it was only recently that one of my friends over there died of an epileptic fit because there was no medical care at all.’
The sustainable funds will act as student loans because the cost of sending each person to be trained will be repaid over four years.
Dr Wilson said that meant the money could then go towards sending someone else for training and it would be a continual cycle.
