Stem Cells
Stem cells are revolutionising both the medical and the beauty world. As we move further into the future regenerative medicine is taking the place of curative medicine as our bodies become resistant to drugs. This means that instead of treating a weak heart with blood thinners for example, the patients’ own stem cells are injected back into their heart in order for these blank canvas cells to receive signals from the surrounding cells to turn into the appropriate cell needed to heal the weak heart.


Stem cells are cells that can multiply and can turn into any different type of cell in the human body. Previously stem cells could only be harvested from embryos but now biotechnology has found a way of turning adult cells back into stem cells. Growth factors and cytokines produced by stem cells have just as much impact as the stem cells themselves.


Ageing appears when healthy cells and repair mechanisms decline. ReLuma’s Cytokine Core Technology uses the same cytokines that your body already produces to supplement these declining processes. Cytokines and growth factors are protein or glycoprotein molecules that signal cells to function at a healthier, younger level. In the case of Reluma, for example, cytokines and growth factors stimulate skin cells to produce more collagen, elastin, and matrix proteins that lead to smoother, younger, healthier looking skin. These cytokines and growth factors are simply proteins that are derived from stem cells. They send signals to surrounding cells to work more efficiently as cell reproduction and function slows with age.
