An interesting study worth reading again : )
Gene expression of aged skin more closely resemble young skin with the use of Sciton BroadBand Light treatment
PALO ALTO, Calif. — (November 12, 2012) – A new study recently published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology shows that Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatments can change the expression of genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble young skin. The study supports the hypothesis that regulators of aging can be altered in human skin using BBL technology to provide a functional change, rather than just a cosmetic mimic of youthful appearance. BBL treatments promote the appearance of youthful skin. This study reveals that the appearance of younger skin may be due to the differences observed in gene expression patterns of aged skin becoming more like young skin. Treatments from the study were performed on the FDA-cleared Sciton Joule using the BBL module.* Read more

With a record-breaking number of sunny days, we have a lot to be thankful for this summer in Vancouver. If you spent the past few months in the beautiful outdoors, there’s one part of you that may not be so thrilled: your skin. Even though your Vitamin D levels have been topped up and your flip-flop collection was put into full-use, the sun’s UV rays will have taken a toll. So to recover from the past couple months of sun damage, we have a simple, effective, and pain-free solution: Osmosis Replenish.
Too much sun exposure causes skin to age because it can’t keep up with free radical damage caused by the sun. When this happens, we naturally give up antioxidants to combat them. Hence the more sun we get, the more antioxidants are depleted.

Osmosis Replenish: Here’s Why We Love It (and why you will too!)
