You may have heard about using drones in warfare, now "drone" technology is being used to target aging.
During the Face and Body conference and Expo being held this week in San Jose, California,Christine Heathman, CEO of GlyMed Plus and medical master aesthetician, revealed the effect of drone technology on the skin. "It extends the cell life span, it boosts the collagen production. These are super powerful peptides," Heathman said during her talk "Bringing Skin Cells Back to their 20s."
She told the audience the delivery system of the peptides targets pigmentation, wrinkles and lifts sagging skin. "It breaks down the desmosomes, which makes it more accessible to active ingredients."
The drones create a reaction from the cellular level. "It targets the specifics of the fibroblasts [the cell in connective tissue that produces collagen and other fibers]," she said. And it goes after the melanocytes, the melanin-producing cells located in the bottom layer (the stratum basale) of the skin's epidermis.
"In order to be successful in what you do, you have to target the skin cell," said Heathman. "I highly recommend you use a product that helps support stem cell health."
Other technology used in the cellular anti-aging battle that Face and Body featured included LED technology as well as microcurrent technology, which is said to balance cellular energy levels. The sub-sensory stimulation is said to clear energy blockages, promote skin health and provide muscle reeducation.
