Stem cells can be a controversial subject today, mostly because they are not yet well understood and their initial origins were found by many to be morally questionable. Fortunately, the more one understands what stem cells truly are, what benefits they can bring and where stem cells now come from, the more one can appreciate what stem cells may be able to do for them.
What is a Stem Cell Facial
In order to understand the value of a stem cell facial treatment, one must first understand where these cells come from and what makes them so incredibly special. Stem cells are unique simply because they are great “doctor” cells and are also able to develop into many different types of cells depending upon what is most needed. They are also able to divide without definite limit, replenishing and repairing other cells for as long as the human, animal or plant in which they live remains alive. Stem cells that divide can either remain a stem cell and perform internal repair duties, or they can become a specialized type of cell, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell or a brain cell. Unfortunately, most stem cells were initially extracted from fetal tissue, which made their use rather controversial. However, scientists have since learned how to cultivate plant stem cells that are equally as beneficial to the human body.
Plant stem cells that are used topically on the epidermis of the body are able to not only preserve our existing stem cells but also repair them as needed so they are able to perform at their very best. Stem cells are ideal for face rejuvenation because they help to stimulate cell division and growth while also protecting and energizing current cells so as to repair the signs of aging. The result is that our skin looks fresh and youthful. Obviously, stem cells that work on the outer layer of the skin can prove beneficial, but stem cells that work on both the outer and inner layers of the skin are even more highly beneficial. This is why most stem cell facials include the use of plant-based comfrey root and argan stem cells, which together work on both the outer and inner layers of the skin.
Comfrey root stem cells work well to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore the skin’s ability to renew itself, which creates more youthful, radiant skin. Additionally, comfrey root stem cells activate natural epidermal stem cell production, which means that one’s skin becomes thicker, smoother and more resilient. They can also help to stimulate the growth of fibroblast, collagen, and elastin, and improve the skin’s hyaluronic acid content, which normally diminishes with aging.
Argan stem cells work well to energize, nourish, and protect our skin. They also help with the production of collagen and elastin so that our skin is firmer and more plump, creating the tighter and smoother appearance we most desire.
