Carson City, NV (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
With so many people affected during adolescent growth-spurts, yo-yo dieting, extreme overweight, weightlifting or during the late stages of pregnancy by scarring of fragile skin and disruption of collagen and elastic fibers within the dermis that shows on the surface of the skin as stretch marks it's no wonder why stretch marks removal and prevention are such hot topics.
But now there's hope with the use of natural skin products that include a naturally occurring serum that helps to strengthen skin and regenerate wounded tissues without abnormal scarring. The same can help to prevent and get rid of stretch marks.
The natural skin care serum is secreted as an essential component of the innate immune system of a little mollusk of the class gastropoda, species Crystomphalus Aspersa; or the humble brown garden snail.
How It Works? It "works in a way similar to how another surprising mollusk, the oyster, coats an irritant --which causes a state of inflammation triggered by cell lining damage-- by secreting a smooth, lustrous substance called nacre around the irritant to prevent it from disrupting its soft tissues. And in the process also yields something as precious as a beautiful Pearl: soft, healthy skin".
Two new products that are safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding: BIOSTRETCHMARKCREAM, and BIOSKINEXFOL (a home microdermabrasion version for old rough stretch marks) made by Andes Natural Skin Care, LLC, include the serum secreted for its own skin repair by this little creature with soft tissues, skin structures, cells and skin matrix molecules very similar to those of human skin. The creams help to strengthen and tighten loose skin, dissolve scar tissues with enzymes, and prevent and greatly diminish the unpleasant odd texture and appearance of stretch marks.
What causes stretch marks is still open to discussion among specialists. Dermal inflammation and dilated capillaries mark the initial presentation, which results in an irritated appearance with characteristic pink, lavender, and purple hues. Later, the marks appear silvery or white without pigmentation and fibrotic.
Continuous and progressive stretching of weakened skin apparently leads to an excessive discharge of inflammatory promoters by free standing mast cells residing within the connective tissues ready to react whenever skin is damaged. The immoderate inflammatory response, ingrained in our system during evolution and intended to quickly cope with damage that could become a thread to our survival, may severely injure collagen and elastin connective skin tissues. This response does not seem appropriate in today's hygienic conditions.
Moderating inflammation with synthetic steroid or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is not a viable option for the prevention of stretch marks because of their many undesired and dangerous side effects, including risks of malformation of the fetus during pregnancy.
Women have tried to condition their skin with moisturizer creams or lotions while they are pregnant to avoid stretch marks, but this only has very limited success.
Strengthening the skin while safely moderating the inflammatory response has a better chance to succeed in preventing stretch marks. And removing old scar tissues by collagenase enzyme activity, which also releases amino-acids, while nourishing the skin with oxygen transporting proteins that stimulate the formation of new collagen, can significantly diminish existing marks. Both can be achieved with the topical application of the natural biological serum.
The molecular basis for the regenerative properties of the serum have been established after screening and clinical trials by scientists from the Department of Biological Sciences, School of Natural Sciences, Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey; the Hospital Universitario de la Princesa, Universidad Autonoma, Madrid, Spain; and the Dermatology Service of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, as reported in the January 2008 issue of the Journal of Pharmacology and Physiology of the Skin.
The mollusk's innate immune support serum was discovered by chance and keen observation. It is collected from mature live snails at 10 day intervals without causing them any harm. The serum has been submitted to safety and toxicological challenges that warrant it is compatible with living cells, and thus safe with no side effects for human skin.
Nobody can patent and claim exclusive rights to this unique secretion because it exists by the biological workings of a living being and not by a man made chemical reaction. In other words, it is a naturally occurring substance designed by evolutionary processes.
Due to its complexity, geared by evolutions' beautiful mechanisms, the serum cannot be replicated even in the most sophisticated biochemical laboratory. In fact, no chemist can replicate the complexity of a solution furnished by the immune system of a living creature, which is capable of generating enormous chemical diversity through the processes of rearranging gene segments and somatic mutation.
Repeatedly, Mother Nature provides a better answer to synthetic solutions through a humble little creature in a way similar to another misunderstood living being with a soft body - the silkworm. The silkworm uses its saliva to build his cocoon of raw silk to protect itself during metamorphosis, and humans benefit by taking the very same material and produce luxurious silk fabric with exceptional properties and unlike all imitations.
Once the snail secretions are collected, they are stabilized by biotechnology and included in liposome vessels so that their enzymes, copper peptides, antioxidants, oxygen transport proteins (haemocyanin) and messenger and healing proteins are not degraded by hydrolysis and can be readily available when applied topically to human skin.
Because of this surprising natural solution, these powerful products are able to:
· Be applied safely on abdomen and breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding without side effects to the mother or child.
· Soften and dissolve existing damaged tissues that show up on the surface of the skin as stretch marks with collagenase enzymes.
· Nourish the dermis with both the oxygen transporting protein haemocyanin in the serum, which helps to initiate new collagen production, and with the amino acids released from the breakdown of damaged tissues.
· Trigger the rebuilding of collagen and elastin levels by activating fibroblasts, the cells responsible for the production of all the elements of healthy skin structures.
· Stimulate the formation of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, the molecules that give skin its capacity to hold in moisture - true skin moisturizing.
· Keep pathogenic skin bacteria at bay, including acne by the action of anti-microbial peptides
· Act as a potent antioxidant with multiple modes of action at the level of free radical production and also sequestering free radicals.
· Stimulate extracellular matrix assembly and the regulation of metalloproteinase activities in dermal fibroblasts, the enzymes responsible for the balance between deterioration of damaged tissues and their replacement with new ones, contributing to the repair of skin lesions and the regeneration of healthy skin.
These scar and stretch marks treatment products operate through a removal process called hydroxylation. By continued daily application for a period of time, depending on the depth of the scarring and on how early they are treated, the natural enzymes consume, digest and breakdown the damaged skin proteins into their basic building blocks (the amino-acids) while haemocyanin brings new oxygen into the cells. The serum also triggers and speeds up the proliferation of fibroblasts that are the cells responsible for the production of all the elements of the skin matrix, repair of wounded tissues and regeneration of healthy skin.
What customers say?
Many customers send rewarding feedback about their use of the products, although results may vary from person to person; and we must warn you that they are not intended to represent what may happen to you.
"I was resigned to the fact that my stretch marks which started off as reddish and purplish in color and then became glossy and appeared streaked in silver and white were permanent and can't be fixed, but yours is a revolutionary way to make them almost invisible".
"This cream is amazing! I could see results even after the first month and I have tried lots of products. I have used it on my entire belly and thighs area. In both places I had really deep stretch marks. It's been 4 months since I started applying it, and I can't believe my eyes."
"Already having stretch marks on my breasts and hips from puberty, I knew I was prone to them and did not want them on my belly or back so I decided to give your product a try and I was hooked after 6 weeks, for the existing marks from adolescence started to disappear and they continued vanishing to almost nothing when I gave birth to my beautiful girl."
"I have been living with stretchmarks since I was 10 years old and have found it a bit depressing come summer time when everyone is pulling out their bikinis. I started using the cream last November and was applying it three times a day. As I finished my fourth bottle, I decided to take some time off since it had already faded my marks so drastically. Amazingly, they were still fading two months after my last use… Not only do I feel sexier, but my husband can't stop buying me lingerie…".
BIOSKINEXFOL, is a skin resurfacing cream or home microdermabrasion cream for stretch marks treatment. It includes micro-crystals to polish away the upper most microns of rough damaged skin to make it look and feel softer and more even. The abrasion also helps the enzymes of the serum to penetrate further to dissolve scar tissues, while its activators of skin regeneration enhance the natural healing process.
The company recommends: "BIOSKINEXFOL for four to six months for people whose stretch marks are older and the surface marks are rough or white and no longer red as is with newly formed striae, and the use of BIOSTRETCHMARKCREAM from the sixth month of pregnancy to prevent stretch marks and during 3 to 6 months to treat newly formed scars and stretch marks". "The improvement of existing scars or stretch marks with these products may persist for almost nine months after discontinuing their application".
As in nature, solutions do not emerge overnight and usually there's no such thing as a quick fix with chemical imitations of nature's gifts. Only with repeated use on the affected areas to strengthen skin and dissolve damaged tissues little by little, beauty can be restored safely and naturally with a routine regimen.
