FlexEffect Skin Remodeling
Skin Remodeling is the process of replacing existing worn-out connective tissue with new collagen and elastic fibers.
Skin Remodeling Exercises
Up until now, the only avenues for skin remodeling exercises were either by way of topical remodeling agents or mechanical procedures. To bring about mechanical remodeling is to induce a small amount of controlled skin damage. Until now such procedures have generally been left to needling, dermabrasion, or laser. After such procedures, the body’s natural healing process takes over bringing in new collagen and elastin fibers!
Fibroblasts Cells… The Holy Grail of Skin Remodeling
Today, experiments and studies are now showing far more fibroblast activity resulting from mechanically stretched skin than the typical wound repair brought about from actual cuts, or cosmetically controlled procedures such as punctures, abrasions. laser etc. It is important to note fibroblast cells do not respond to everyday physiological strain on the skin i.e., massage, facial exercise, vibration, etc. To promote the highest level of fibroblast activity the skin must be stretched beyond normal levels. Remember, it’s all about wound repair, so your goal is to bring about microscopic levels of damage; again, microscopic levels not visible to the naked eye.
I am fully aware of the idea that deliberately stretching the skin beyond the norm could cause permanent damage. This idea comes from the die-hard misconception that any stretching of the skin will permanently stretch it causing sag; this is total nonsense. It is true that the skin can be stretched to increase the amount of skin needed for certain medical procedures (grafts) but the procedure for this type of stretching takes months and months of continuous stretching without any let-up in tension. Stretching and releasing the skin within a matter of a few seconds such as in Cross Stretching™ cannot and positively will not cause permanently stretched skin
|FlexEffect’s Cross Stretching™ is based on the same principle as Facial Resistance Training™ but instead of breaking down muscle, Cross Stretching™ breaks down weak, brittle, worn-out tissue that is no longer pulling its weight. Cross Stretching™ simply brings about the repair (wound healing) needed to build thicker, firmer, supple skin that you may have thought you had lost forever.|
The science behind FlexEffect’ Facialbuilding was confirmed in a recent study by the Tissue Engineering and Wound Healing Laboratory at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School; Tufts University School of Medicine; and the University of Padua, among other contributing authors. In the study, researchers noted that the “accumulation of neuropeptides in both epidermis and dermis were significantly increased after cyclical stretching of the skin.”
