PowerDerm Triggers 88 In Minutes
POWERDERM KINETIC DISRUPTION
PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion uses kinetic disruption to remove several dead skin layers of the Stratum Corneum with each treatment. Kinetic Disruption is accomplished by transferring energy from the powerful rotating dermabrador bosses into the crystals within a special emollient crème compound.
CALCIUM ION GRADIENT (CIG) REMOVED
The calcium ion (Ca2+) is perhaps the most common intracellular messenger in neurons. Indeed, few neuronal functions are immune to the influence—direct or indirect—of Ca2+. Calcium ions are responsible for many important physiological functions, such as in muscle contraction, fertilization, and neurotransmitter release.
CLIPPING THE DESMOSOMES
Keratinocytes attach together via cell–cell junctions and associated to cytoskeletal proteins, which gives the epidermis its mechanical strength. These cell-cell junctions are called Desmosomes.
SIGNALING TO AND FROM THE BRAIN
Any Change to the permeability barrier affects the Calcium Ion Gradient (2 above) and is immediately signaled to the brain’s Hypothalamus that Homeostasis is no longer balanced, and repairs need to be provided.
FIBROBLASTS SECRETE COLLAGEN & ELASTIN AND GROUND SUBSTANCE
Within the Dermis reside Fibrocytes and Fibroblasts. These are special cells that form the backbone of the structural maintenance and excretion of the materials of the dermis, such as Collagen & Elastin and Dermal Matrix Ground Substance, a gelatinous, reticulated structure that houses all other vessels and metabolic processes, and grows with the body from natal to geriatric.
FIBROBLAST & MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL (MSC) PARENTAGE
Fibroblasts are responsible for synthesis of collagen and elastin and the ground substance which comprise the Dermis. They are believed by medical researchers to derive from the MSC’s since they are very similar. Thus, FibroBlast Stem Cell Parentage assures Collagen & Elastin Restructuring no matter how old our bodies get, as long as we get internal nutrients to the Dermis.
COLLAGEN & ELASTIN
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue, and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. The fibrocyte/fibroblast is the most common cell that creates collagen.
Elastin is a protein fibril rich in hydrophobic amino acids and is major component of connective tissue in the extracellular matrix that supports and gives many tissues in the body the ability to resume their shape after stretching or contracting
DERMAL MATRIX GROUND SUBSTANCE SECRETED BY FIBROBLASTS
AND COMPRISES 80% OF THE DERMIS
Dermal Matrix Ground substance is the amorphous material in which thickening, firming, and structural Collagen and Elastin elements are manufactured, and through which all nutrients are made available to the Epidermis. It is the major component of connective tissue in the extracellular matrix which supports a Youthful Healthy Vibrant Appearance.
VASODILATION (WIDENING OF BLOOD VESSELS)
PowerDerm Treatment induces vasodilation which increases blood flow and saturates the tissue with blood nutrients in the form of oxygenation and CO2 exchange, and plasma infusion into the interstitial tissues with a prodigious supplies of nutrients.
During and After a PowerDerm Kinetic Lymphatic Massage, the interstitial fluid can now bathe all the surrounding Dermal Matrix Ground Substance with OPTIMAL NUTRIENTS and RESUPPLY NUTRIENTS to the Epidermis by way of the Dermal Papillae Nipples.
THERMOREGULATION AND VASODILATION
Thermoregulation is the ability of the Brain to regulate body temperature by vasodilation, increasing the caliber of blood vessels. However, it is also accomplished through physical stimulation of the temperature and circulation of the skin such as through brisk rubbing OR through Kinetic Dermabrasion. An increase in blood vessel caliber and circulation is part of the process of increasing the interstitial fluid that PowerDerm treatments flush the Lymphatic Circulation System clear of blockages caused by stagnant cellular debris, hormones, toxins, etc.
CAPILLARY PLASMA NUTRITION SUPPORT
Interstitial fluid (or tissue fluid) is a solution that bathes and surrounds the cells of animals. It is the main component of the extracellular fluid, which also includes plasma and transcellular fluid.
PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion with Lymphatic Drainage Massage causes a Massive exchange of plasma into interstitial fluid and into lymph, and assures 100% Optimal availability of all essential nutrients to the Dermis and to the Skin cells above it, and assures the Optimal removal of all pathogens and metabolic waste products.
Fibroblasts are blind, so their only senses are biosignals from biochemical reactions caused by metabolic responses, injury, etc., in any given area of the skin. No matter the cause of the trigger, be it Dermabrasion, laser, a flame, carpet or chemical burn, an insect sting, a sliver, or a pimple, fibroblasts are alerted through biochemical reactions in the dermis, and migrate to the area.
Blood Capillaries are always open to the INTERSTITIAL TISSUE and to the venules that drain off excess interstitial fluid. The drainage exception occurs when the interstitial fluid contains large proteins and cellular debris that are too large for the venule side capillary openings to permit them to drain into them. Then, the draining capillaries will not be able to extrude plasma unless the lymphatic capillaries are fully functioning and draining off the large protein and metabolically dissolved and decaying matter and fluids, along with virus’ and pathogens.
ACNE CYCLE STARTS AT THE CAPILLARIES
PowerDerm works on acne by taking off the comedones and pumping the circulation to bring leukocytes (WBC), Hyaluronic Acid, and monocytes into the fester and inflammation. Multiple Treatments are performed in order to maximize clearing the clogged Stratum Corneum omedones, Pumping the Sebum out, and pumping the lymphatics to increase antigens and remove pathogens. Recommended length of intensive treatments are 3 times a week or until the client’s desired look is accomplished. Concerning the antibacterial function of the Acid Mantle, it is well established that resurfacing aids in a fully functioning acid mantle, which provides proper Bacterial and Viral protection and lubrication to be secreted from the sebaceous oil glands and hair follicles.
Lymphatic capillaries are tiny thin-walled vessels that are closed at one end (entry point) and are located in the spaces between cells throughout the body, except in the central nervous system, and in non- ascular tissues such as the Epidermis.
LYMPHATIC MASSAGE FROM POWERDERM KINETIC PULSE WAVE
PowerDerm Kinetic Lymphatic Massage opens up the tissue passages between Blood Capillaries to Lymphatic Capillaries to Lymph – increasing the blood plasma nutrient flow and the increase of interstitial fluid to cell tissue of the Dermal Matrix Ground Substance and by diffusion, makes all nutrients available to the Epidermis, and balances Hormones and Homeostasis ndocrine Responses.
DERMAL PAPILLAE NIPPLES FEED PLASMA NUTRIENTS TO BASAL MEMBRANE CELLS
Dermal Papillae Nipples are unique in their specific role to feed Blood Plasma – Interstitial Fluid nutrients into the Epidermis Strata layers. They are small, nipple-like structures at the intersection of the dermis and the epidermis. the papillary design provides for greater skin cell productivity on the other side of the Basal Lamina which guarantees a superabundant quantity skin cells in the keratinization process. In the surface of the skin in hands and feet, they show at the surface as Fingerprints, this appearance is actually the papillary ridges. The Epidermis gets its life supporting nutrients from the Dermis in a process called Diffusion.
LEUKOCYTES (L) (IMMUNE CELLS)
Leukocytes (L) (Immune Cells), commonly known as White Blood Cells, are involved in defending the body against infectious disease and foreign materials. They are carried through blood plasma and into interstitial fluid to the body and skin organ. Leukocytes react to pathogens or injury by producing inflammation and VASODILATION of the capillaries, releasing more leukocytes into the tissues, and stimulating the fibrocyte and fibroblast synthesis of collagen and elastin. LANGERHANS IMMUNITY CELLS Langerhans Immunity Cells are dendritic cells (antigen-presenting immune cells) of the skin and mucosa, are present in all layers of the epidermis, but are most prominent in the stratum spinosum.
CELLULAR MITOSIS BIRTH OF THE SKIN CELLS
BASEMENT GERMINAL CELL MEMBRANE: THE DERMOEPIDERMAL JUNCTION
The dermoepidermal junction is an undulating basement germinal membrane that adheres the epidermis to the dermis, and through which the interstitial fluids DIFFUSE nutrients and hormones into the Epidermis, and especially in support of reproduction of Basal Keratinocyte Cells that are attached to and germinate upon its surface. PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion triggers all the essential factors related to healthy cellular mitosis and healthy germination and maturation by increasing the Diffusion of abundant blood and lymphatic fluid plasma nutrients and oxygenation through the papillary dermis’ underside attachment to the basement membrane. Equally important is the removal of excess or blocked hormones, especially MSH-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone, which is the main instigator of persistent and deep Hyperpigmentation.
KERATINOCYTES GERMINATED FROM BASAL STEM CELLS
Keratinocyte Basal Cells are Stem Cells, and as such, will produce new cells throughout the body’s life, they do this without fail, unless malnourished or genetically altered by UV Radiation – hence Basal Cell Carcinoma is named after the cells that mutate into carcinomas. The Stratum Basal or Germinativum is constantly reproducing new Keratinocytes consisting of keratin, a tough, protective protein that makes up the beginning stages of a skin cell, although the mitosis process can be delayed or speeded up based upon changes in barrier protection signals. In the reproduction process, nutrients are needed from the Interstitial Fluid, for it is here that the health of this cell will create either a healthy Epidermis or a deficient and blemished one. PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion stimulates regeneration and PowerDerm Lymphatic Massage stimulates Nutritional Support and Flushing of Stagnant toxins and hormones that degrade the health of the new Skin Cells.
Once the Keratinocyte is activated by mitosis and cell division, it will continue to be pushed up by new keratinocytes being germinated on the basal layer. As it moves up through each strata layer it synthesizes more keratin protein to its structure and creates an integrated and tougher Skin Cell. Each layer participates in its development and this process is called Keratinization. Their ultimate death is in a process called DESQUAMATION, where they are flaking off the epidermis as Dead Skin Cells, except they are not declared dead until they fall off or are rubbed off the skin. The human body sheds over 1 Million skin cells a day.
Melanocytes are melanin- producing cells that are located in the bottom layer (the stratum basal) of the skin’s epidermis. Melanin is the pigment primarily responsible for skin and hair color. The purpose of Melanocytes is to protect the human body from UV-A and UV-B DNA damage by covering each skin cell nucleus with MELANIN. Typically, there are 1000 and 2000 melanocytes per square millimeter of skin. Melanocytes comprise from 1% to 10% of the cells in the basal layer of epidermis depending upon where they are located on the body.
PowerDerm Treatments assist with hormonal balancing in the tissues, vitamin and nutrient supplementation, and the overall healing process by bringing Power Circulation of Hormonally Balanced Plasma to the impaired area, which eventually brings pigmentation hormone levels of MSH and Tyrosinase, back to Normal Endocrine Levels. Normal HYPER-Pigmentation has blocked up MSH signals and overproduction of Tyrosinase which is found inside melanosomes which are synthesized in the skin melanocytes. Melanocyte- Stimulating Hormones (collectively referred to as MSH or intermedins) are a class of peptide hormones that are produced by cells in the intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland, controlled by the Hypothalamus. They stimulate the production and release of melanin (melanogenesis) by melanocytes in skin and hair
Blocked MSH needs to be flushed out and the tissue hormones balanced. PowerDerm Lymphatic Massage effectively flushes it, but 4 – 8 weeks of treatments are typically required. HYPO- Pigmentation, is a lack of MSH signals getting through, and is resolved by unblocking nutrient flow and restoring MSH balance in the Papillary Dermis, unless there is an underlying endocrine or immunity problem that destroys the Melanocytes on the Stratum Basal.
DESMOSOMES PRICKLE ADHESIVE LAYER
The Stratum Spinosum is directly above the Stratum Basal. After undergoing cellular mitosis, the keratinocyte cell will rise to the Strata Spinosum layer acquiring necessary Cell Junctions or Cell to Cell connection, beginning the first stage to Keratinization. Desmosomes Connections are similar to a root structure that grows out of each side of the cell’s walls, and physically and chemically entangle and adhere together. It is these connections that PowerDerm “clips” as its microcrystalline compound is pressured against the skin by the Bosses on the Dermabradors.
Keratohyalin Granularization occurs in the Stratum Granulosum. It is the layer above the Stratum Spinosum. Keratohyalin is a protein that forms dense cytoplasmic granules that promote dehydration of the cell as well as aggregation and cross- linking of the keratin fibers. Dehydration will make the Keratohyalin surround the Keratin fibers.
GLYCOLIPIDS BARRIER LIPIDS
Glycolipids reside in the Stratum Granulosum and take part in the Keratohyalin Granularization process. Their primary role is to provide energy, serve as markers for cellular recognition, and are waterproofing of keratinocytes. Glycolipids join the Keratinazation of the skin cell by supplying waterproofing lipids & intracellular hydration in the stratum granulosum layers, just up to when the corneum cell reaches desquamation.
LAMELLAR MEMBRANE REPLACED
The Lamellar Membrane is composed of Lamellar Granules, and is not a singular membrane construct, but the byproduct of overlapping secreted disks or plates, thus Lamellar refers to overlapping membranous forming disks in design. Lamellar granules are specialized epidermal organelles containing stacks of membranous disks that are extruded by the Keratinocytes into the intercellular spaces in the uppermost layers of the Stratum Granulosum.
flattened along with the maturing Keratinocytes as they enter the Stratum Corneum.
In its response to trauma the Lamellar Granules fully activate and “pump-up” its glycolipid defense of the moisture shield barrier. During this hyperactive phase, the Lamellar Granules will continue to produce membrane disks and Keratohyalin until homeostasis signals turn them off.
This exponentially increases its output in order to replace the loss of barrier protection at the
top of the skin’s surface.
COLLAGEN VI STRUCTURE: SCAR TISSUE, ACNEIC 1-4 – SCAR & WRINKLE
There is no Collagen in the natural Epidermis. Keratin is the protein synthesized within skin cells. Collagen and Elastin are the structural and elastic components of the Dermis. Fibroblasts that reside in the skin are signaled to migrate to the inflammation at the injury site, and secrete Collagen VI peptide strands into the damaged area. The Collagen VI peptide strands will extend through the extracellular matrix of the Epidermis and create a wall around the injured site, joining the natural collagen in the Dermal Matrix with itself.
PIGMENTATION — DEEP HORMONAL & SUPERFICIAL
Hyperpigmentation can show up in all Fitzpatrick levels, primarily as Pregnancy Mask. Some chemicals peels (Jessner, etc.), sandblasting microdermabrasion and lasers will spread this hyperpigmentation because of trauma effects on certain Fitzpatrick levels that are susceptible to Hyperpigmentation. Also Known as Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion deals with both types, Deep Hormonal and Superficial, and they are relatively easy to fix when multiple and very frequent treatments are performed.
DEEP HORMONAL HYPERPIGMENTATION
Deep Hormonal Pigmentation Originates in the Dermis, and is caused when the dermis does not have a balance in nutrient supply to the Melanocyte surrounding the Basal Keratinocytes. Typical blockage is caused by Post- Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation OR by an overabundance of hormones- such as during pregnancy or puberty, and these hormones cause breakouts in the skin, but in the dermis, they have shut down interstitial fluid circulation in these areas. This shut down blocks Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (MSH) from circulating, and it continues to signal melanocyte pigmentation production through diffusion into the basal keratinocytes in the Epidermis. This vicious cycle will not stop until the Dermis is flushed of all blocked hormones. Two to three Kinetic Dermabrasion Treatments weekly over a period of 6-8 weeks will remove all deeply pigmented layers of the Epidermis as they are forced by new growth up to the surface.
The second type of discoloration is superficial hyperpigmentation. This type of pigment resides only in the Stratum Corneum and is observed as discoloration spots, freckles, and liver spots. From the age of 40 onward, the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure, and liver spots are very common in this age group, particularly in those who spend time in the sun. Basically, the area under the spot is unable to reproduce effectively and the spot acquires aging discoloration. This type of sun damage is a cosmetic concern unless it shows characteristics of basal, squamous, actinic, or melanoma cancer. Unless a person is born with basal resident melanin freckles, the freckles are sun damage from UV-B that has destroyed the DNA of the Keratinocyte. All brown spots on hands, face, arms and body are DNA damage in the Stratum Corneum. It is important to remove this damage because damage of this type leads to Oxidative cellular stress and an increase in future potential damage.
MICRO MOLECULAR COSMECEUTICAL PENETRATION—DIFFUSION
The Stratum Corneum is generally impermeable, especially to brief encounters with water or other fluidic oils, chemicals, or Cosmeceuticals. The Exchange Of All Cellular Nutrients is accomplished by Diffusion. Diffusion is the movement of atoms or molecules from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. Many molecules diffuse across cell membranes, such as the basal lamina. When the Corneum Barrier is removed, cosmeceuticals can gain access to the interstitial tissues by diffusion. PowerDerm Kinetic Dermabrasion lowers the surface barrier shield—so cosmeceuticals can be diffused effectively into the living keratinocyte cells below and into the dermal interstitial tissues.
