ABOUT Biomedical products…
Our passion derives from proven dermatology products that have a real impact on skin and health. Extensive research and development by Dr Judey as well as the Department of Human Biology at the University of Cape Town has led to incorporate the first and very unique tertiary structure tissue-protective peptide technology, that promotes advanced cellular turn-over rates as well optimal skin densification and dermal hydration.
Intrinsic and extrinsic environmental factors are taken into consideration during the formulation of all cosmeceutical products. Some products are formulated specificaly based on the client’s or patient geographical location as skin oxidation rates differs from area to area.
How is this science applicable today? What do we have to do to obtain skin cell harmony?
We need products that will address all the mechanisms of aging – a product of a “cosmeceutical” nature. In other words applying a product that works on cellular and molecular level in order to be potently effective and safe and to ultimately stimulate a therapeutic response.
Microneedling is a procedure whereby thousands of tiny holes are punctured in the skin. It is ‘controlled skin injury.’ These holes or ‘micro-wounds’ trigger the body to fill in these holes by producing new collagen and elastin in the dermis along with new capillaries. The new blood flow and collagen production results in improvement of scars and rejuvenation of the skin. The texture, firmness and hydration of the skin are improved. Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT) which is a very accurate description of what is happening. The depth of the needle penetration dictates the level of injury to the skin and the potential results to be achieved.
