As the beauty and skincare industry evolves, there has also been development in the formulation of effective anti-aging products, with breakthroughs that aim to improve the way we approach how our skin ages. The body’s cells have various mechanisms for repair, including detoxification processes and the generation of stem cells to replace damaged ones. These mechanisms are found in various tissues, including within the skin layers. Regeneration, therefore, focuses on harnessing the body’s natural healing abilities, going beyond replacing all the damaged parts and tissues and boosting the repair function to fight off diseases, including aging skin.
As part of achieving youthful skin and a glowing complexion, the right combination of skincare products plays a key role. We often rely on trusted and established ingredients like retinoids, sunscreen, and Vitamin C to help do the job. However, the anti-aging landscape is evolving, and there’s a growing understanding of the value of products containing exosomes and growth factors that can enhance the anti-aging arsenal and improve the appearance of our aging skin.
Growth factors are natural polypeptides or proteins produced by cells like fibroblasts, keratinocytes, and melanocytes. They stimulate growth, healing, and regeneration in living tissues, and are often complemented by cytokines, which are regulators of the immune system and contributors to skin repair. Many growth factors have been studied in clinical settings for their ability to boost collagen synthesis, improve skin firmness and elasticity, and promote skin repair and rejuvenation. Meanwhile, exosomes are small extracellular vesicles that are found in mammalian cells. They contain proteins, growth factors, and genetic information like RNA, micro RNA, and DNA. These exosomes facilitate communication between cells, making them vital for promoting healing, and are considered a breakthrough in regenerative medicine and skincare.
CALECIM® offers a powerful range of stem cell skincare and hair care products. The science behind their products has been clinically proven to help with skin regeneration, combat aging, and contribute to overall skin health and aesthetics, with visible results within a quick time frame. Their formulation contains growth factors, exosomes, hyaluronic acid, fibronectin, glycoproteins, and peptides in it, all of which are naturally secreted by their source of ethically derived stem cells. While there may be other exosome and growth factor products in the market, CALECIM® is the only brand that offers these powerful actives from their patented source of stem cells.
Clinical trials and studies with dermatologists have proven the positive impact that CALECIM®’s stem cell skincare products have had on patients and users, including reducing pigmentation, restoring skin fullness and elasticity, enhancing facial definition, and significantly decreasing fine lines. Notably, their solutions and serums have demonstrated efficacy in decreasing post-procedure redness and inflammation, making them a practical choice for both in-clinic treatments and at-home usage.
While the Professional Serum within CALECIM®’s range is widely used in clinics to accelerate treatment recovery and enhance results in skin procedures like microneedling and radio-frequency, it’s also extensively used for at-home skin maintenance. For example, there are several at-home skincare techniques and tools that can be employed alongside the Professional Serum, such as at-home laser devices that use strong wavelengths to penetrate the skin’s surface, targeting wrinkles and fine lines and promoting collagen production. Paired with the stem cell serum, it can further enhance the lifting and tightening of the skin. Their stem cell serum helps supercharge daily and customized anti-aging skincare routines, bridging the gap between clinical and personal care.
The intricacies of cellular repair and restoration within the body require an incredibly concentrated effort of multiple different types of naturally secreted growth factors, exosomes and proteins by the stem cells. CALECIM® achieves this through the ethical sourcing and composition of growth factors, exosomes, and proteins from stem cells, blending them in a potent and innovative mix to develop their patented ingredient, PTT-6®. The role of this ingredient is to empower the skin and its cellular mechanisms by reducing inflammatory reactions in the dermis post treatment, and promoting essential protein and nutrient production.
The extracts in CALECIM®’s PTT-6® ingredient contain over 3,000 active growth factors, cytokines, and substantial exosomes in just a single milliliter, making it especially rich in nutrients, collagen, and peptides. This results in a formulation that is conducive to skin regeneration, generating denser epidermal layers, and accelerated healing. In-vitro results have proven that outcomes are beneficial for the skin’s moisture and elastin production—skin cell production is triggered and old cells are shed off, leading to a more radiant and translucent appearance as the newer cells rise to the surface layer of the skin.
A handful of synthetically produced exosomes could never achieve this level of potency in their effects, and this is only possible with the unique PTT-6, CALECIM®’s proprietary ingredient. The exosomes and growth factors aren’t just added into the dermis, they also activate production of more of these proteins through intercellular communication, allowing the stem cells to benefit from a comprehensive mix which is already naturally generated from within.
With the right mix of exosomes, growth factors, and cytokines, CALECIM® is poised to revolutionize aesthetic skincare. The emphasis on understanding the source of and utilizing stem cells and exosomes for optimal benefits underscores the commitment to fronting advancements in cosmeceuticals and beauty. As these skincare treatment procedures continue to be enhanced and developed, it is essential to harness the potential of stem cell technology to help transform our skin’s behavior and further understand the aging process.
