Unveiling the Skin Secret: The Power of Defensins over Retinols!

If you’ve heard of retinol or microneedling medspa treatments in or around Santa Barbara, you’ll definitely want to try the DefenAge 8-in-1 BioSerum. This serum packs a serious anti-aging punch, with its high concentration of defensins. Like a medspa microneedling session, defensins activate new skin cells within the body, effectively addressing the appearance of fine lines.

The 8-in-1 BioSerum has the highest concentration of Age-Repair defensins with a light-weight application, making it the ideal final step of your daily skincare regimen. The best thing about incorporating DefenAge’s 8-in-1 BioSerum into your regular skincare routine is that your skin will receive all the benefits of retinol or microneedling, and works as an excellent complementary therapy in tandem with other skincare treatments, without any of the redness typical of retinol treatments. Read on to learn all about this new formula, and why it’s a must for your skincare toolkit!

What Are Defensins?

Defensins are peptides that can reactivate latent LGR6 stem cells in the basal layer of the skin. When defensins are applied topically, they reduce the typical signs of skin aging, and also increase dermal thickness, which declines with age and loss of collagen and elastin.

These peptides have benefits beyond anti-aging uses. Defensins can kill bacteria or inhibit bacterial growth through antimicrobial mechanisms, such as direct membrane disruption and inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Defensins can even reduce bacterial infection by neutralizing secreted toxins.

How Do Defensins Compare to Retinol?

Retinols and retinoic acid are frequently used in a number of anti-aging medspa treatments in Santa Barbara and beyond. Retinols work on the skin by activating old stem cells to regenerate existing skin cells. Unfortunately, many patients who undergo retinol treatments in a medspa or who use topical retinol products, report  experiencing aggravated skin with redness and inflammation.

In contrast, defensins actually manufacture new, younger skin stem cells (basal cells). No other product in skincare does this.

Defensins stimulate the skin to make brand new young skin stem cells (basal cells) that reverse skin aging like no other product on the market.

Defensins provide you with antiaging skincare results - but without any of the post treatment downtime or redness and irritation often caused by retinol use.

“The idea was can we use defensins in a topical to activate the stem cells without having to traumatize the skin — without having to do a peel or laser procedure. We showed, that’s exactly what happened,” says Dr. Bucay who is part owner of MediCell Technologies, of a recent study comparing retinol against defensins.

In a just published Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (the top journal of drugs in dermatology) peer reviewed article, most patients who used DefenAge products with defensins observed noticeable differences in all aspects of their skin aging (diminished wrinkles, smaller pores, diminished brown spots, etc). This is only one of almost a dozen peer reviewed journal articles that have documented the superiority of DefenAge over other products to actually reverse skin aging. One study noted an average apparent age reversal of 16 years with objective measures.

What Are the Other Ingredients in DefenAge 8-in-1 BioSerum?

In complement to its high dose of age repair defensins, the 8-in-1 BioSerum utilizes a number of powerful ingredients as effective delivery vehicles and to promote healthy skin.

  • Niacinamide boosts collagen production to improve skin texture and smoothness, erase fine lines and wrinkles, and help brighten and fade hyperpigmentation.
  • Hyaluronic acid helps skin retain its elasticity, and reduces wrinkles and lines.
  • Hyaluronic acid is also proven to accelerate wound healing, and can reduce scarring.
  • Sea Whip calms irritation while Algae nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
  • DefenAge’s fine blend of natural antioxidants, enzymes and hydrating technologies help protect the skin's surface from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV and pollution. Antioxidants are well known for having powerful anti-aging effects on the skin.
