Anti-Aging Skincare Goes to the next Level!

Steppie_MD_BLOG_JULY2014-DNA-REPAIR

Those who are savvy about skincare and sunshine are adamant about protecting their skin from premature aging, skin cancer and other potential sun-exposure damage by slathering on a high SPF sunscreen before venturing outdoors. But it’s critical to understand that no amount of sunscreen will ever be able to undo sun damage that has already been done. That damage ultimately will manifest as prematurely aged or discolored skin, or even skin cancer.

Exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays does far more than burn and wrinkle your skin. It literally damages your skin cells at the DNA level. Fortunately, our bodies are designed to defend themselves from harm, and in the case of sun-driven DNA damage, respond by deploying special repair enzymes to the damage site. However, as we age, the body’s ability to repair and defend itself weakens. Plus, though skin cancer can hit anyone of any ethnicity or skin tone, those with lighter complexions can be more susceptible to cancer and other damage caused by the sun’s rays.

But good news is on the horizon. Taking a cue from the body’s natural defense mechanisms, scientists specializing in skincare are developing skin creams infused with the same DNA-repairing enzymes that our bodies produce in response to sun exposure. Research published in major medical publications like the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal shows that DNA repair is emerging as a the newest, most promising anti-aging solution. In fact, it has proved key validation of Dr. Michael Steppie, MD‘s years of skincare research and collaboration with world renowned research centers.

In 2012, Dr. Steppie released his patent-pending Pro Organic Complex™ supercharged with cutting-edge rejuvenating ingredients. Now what we are about to explain is going to get a little “technical”, but today’s skincare users are more discerning and enjoy getting into the science behind product breakthroughs. No more simply taking a brand’s word for it! Here’s an attempt at condensing nearly 100 pages of scientific data into just one paragraph!

In clinical studies, one of Dr. Steppie’s active ingredients, a unique kelp extract, was shown to lower the progerin level and increase the activity of proteasome in aging cells. Progerin is a degraded form of the nuclear architectural protein Lamin A, found in healthy, younger skin. Proteasome is one of the body’s vital protective mechanisms that involve breaking down and eliminating damaged skin proteins, allowing for the creation of healthy essential proteins like collagen and elastin and helping continuously regenerate. Clinical researchers found that this unique kelp extract remarkably reduced the progerin production in aging cells from 66-year-old donors by upward of 71%, returning them to levels found in cells of 35-year old subjects!

If the term “progerin” sounds familiar, you may have seen the film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, starring famed actor Brad Pitt playing a man with an extremely rare genetic disease called Progeria wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age. The word progeria comes from the Greek words “pro” meaning “before” or “premature”, and “gēras” meaning “old age”. Those born with progeria typically live to their mid teens to early twenties.

While the film certainly took some creative license with the condition’s manifestations, the idea of reverse-aging mechanisms, such as portrayed in this “fantasy” story might have inspired scientists.

Now, scientists Dr. Steppie has joined forces with have proven that progerin’s essential functionality can be harnessed and used in expertly formulated skincare products to visibly “turn the clock” back!

As this recent Skin Cancer Foundation Journal article mentions, research proves that DNA repair is a crucial factor in keeping skin healthy… and the powerfully restorative qualities of this never seen before kelp extract* help achieve that! It’s why Dr. Steppie selected this breakthrough ingredient when formulating his Pro-Organic Complex™-infused Ethereal Beauty™ Anti Aging Cellular Serum. It’s also infused with rare skin-rejuvenating Sequoia tree stem cells, clinically proven to boost DNA repair by 42 percent!

Among participants’ self- evaluations studies, 90 % reported an improvement in their skin’s firmness; 80-85 % saw and improvement in skin texture, tone and wrinkles; and 70 % say their skin was more radiant.
