We are able to enjoy significantly longer life spans today due to permanently ongoing further developments in medical fields. Yet such an extended life also means we are faced with hitherto unknown age-related conditions impacting our physical activity and well-being.
This is precisely where today’s regenerative medicine comes in because we now have a broad range of possibilities and potential measures of mitigating a body’s signs of wear, of regenerating bodily functions, providing pain relief and maintaining physical and mental fitness, as well as using regenerative therapy forms to supplement classical medicine.
Skin aging is a visible outer sign of a person’s general aging; skin aging begins around the age of 25 and eventually becomes visible especially in the form of lines and wrinkles. Here again, we differentiate between biological aging and aging due to external factors and influences. In biological terms, the rate of cell regeneration is slowed down, the cell’s capacity for moisture storage will decrease. In deeper layers of the skin, the enzyme collagenase decomposes more and more collagen with increasing age – thus causing skin to lose its elasticity. The most important factor in skin aging is the effect of ultraviolet radiation, also called light-induced aging. UV radiation causes free radicals to develop which may destroy cell components and cause cells to die. This form of aging is amplified especially by extensive sunbathing and the use of tanning beds in solariums. Another sign of sun-exposed skin damage are “age spots”. Also, the use of nicotine, i.e. smoking, causes premature skin aging and the formation of wrinkles.
The cosmetics industry and cosmetic medicine, respectively are using the terms of anti-aging or pro-aging to offer a broad range of methods to fight wrinkles. The terms are also frequently used for measures in cosmetic surgery. The efficacy of all methods is limited to months or years, and the methods partly involve risks as well. They do not, in effect, actually influence the aging of organisms and skin.
Application of Sanakin® in aesthetics
Compared to other forms of treatment, the use of Sanakin offers the doctor a unique opportunity: the skin is treated purely biologically and completely naturally.
In contrast to passive substances botulinum toxin (Botox) and hyaluronic acid, the body’s own serum is actively used. By using the novel medical device Sanakin®, the attending physician uses a body’s own serum which has few side effects and is completely natural.
The aesthetic areas of application are the skin, the face, the neck and the décolleté area by means of injection of the wrinkles. For further applications, please contact your attending physician.
