Frequently Asked Questions
What is microneedling?
How is Misti’s approach different than the ''derma'' pens?
IS THIS THE SAME AS PRP? IS IT AS EFFECTIVE?
When it comes to hair loss, Misti's approach is preferable to PRP, as PRP is considered a “shot gun” approach. There is no way to control what is in PRP to select those bio-signals most favorable to restore hair growth. Her efforts are more precise - utilizing products with selected bio-signals with proven efficacy - and a more targeted approach, because of the use of smaller, precise needles and the less invasive application.
Microneedling, (unlike PRP, which can be very painful), is mild to moderate, in terms of discomfort.
Is microneedling approved for all skin types?
What is stem cell regeneration therapy?
Stem cells contain two key components: growth factors, which play a role in cell division, the growth of new cells, and the production of collagen and elastin; and proteins, which regulate that stem-cell division.
Only one type of stem cell produces the correct signals to spearhead healing and drastically reduce inflammation - the bone marrow stem cell. Our stem cells come from healthy adult donors to ensure safety and efficacy. We take only a small amount, and then utilize these cells to isolate the exact bio-signals (Stem Cytokines™) needed for your skin to heal and recover.
The stem cells used in our treatments uses these specialized signals and communicate to them in their own language, convincing your body to produce patterns of skin healing, anti-inflammatory actions, and anti-aging growth factors throughout the skin. Our cytokines and growth factors are harvested and used separate from the cell, keeping our products 100% cell free.
What is a stem cell?
Do you actually have stem cells in your products?
All cells, including stem cells, have very active "social lives," where they communicate with nearby cells - by releasing special messenger proteins known as “cytokines” and “growth factors.” All cells (except red blood cells) "talk" to each other this way.
The stem cells we use are grown in the laboratory under conditions that mimic their native environment, which convinces them to produce and release these messenger molecules (bio-signals). We then filter out the cells and collect the bio-signals, which we use in a topical serum. Our products do not contain cells or cell parts.
