DefenAge is a new skin care product line that rejuvenates the skin by activating the stem cells found in hair follicles. Age-Repair Defensins™ are the regenerative messenger peptides contained in DefenAge. They work by triggering the production of new skin cells by the stem cells they target.
This process leads to cell renewal that results in more youthful appearing skin. The barrier surface layer of skin cells, known as keratinocytes, are restored leading to enhanced protection from environmental skin stressors and improved skin hydration. The clinical trials that were performed showed diminished wrinkles, enhanced skin tone and texture, and reduced dryness.
Dr. Forley is using DefenAge in combination with the Fractora micro needling and radio frequency energy treatment to maximize skin improvement. Enhanced penetration of the stem cell stimulating Age-Repair Defensins™ through the channels created by the Fractora procedure may potentiate their effect on skin cell renewal.
