benefits

nature’s filler

Hyaluronic Acid, a wrinkle smoothing gel. Pure, non-crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid is a highly-effective skin moisturizing agent. Its particular ability to attract and bind water molecules serves to moisturize the skin and maintain the elasticity of dermal and epidermal tissues. When applied to the skin, Hyaluronic Acid forms a viscoelastic film, replicating its natural function of retaining water in the intercellular matrix of dermal connective tissues. This makes Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Smoothing Gel an ideal moisture base, facilitating the delivery of other agents to the skin. It is recommended for treating wrinkled, tired, sun-damaged and dried-out skin.

nsture’s liposculpt

nature’s liposculpt is also call Phosphatidylcholine, a Lipolytic Solution. Naturally abundant in cell membranes, this phospholipid, breaks down the fat stored in fat cells. Phosphatidylcholine Lipolytic Solution emulsifies the fat, allowing it to be absorbed into the bloodstream and transported. This makes it the ideal solution for eliminating localized adiposities.

scientific studies support the use of phosphatidylcholine about inflammatory levels, cellular membrane structure, development of the overall brain as a central nervous system. For this reason, your body needs phosphatidylcholine to synthesize the compound called acetylcholine. It is a chemical within the brain that helps the primary nervous system function for supporting your memory, preventing vascular dementia and other mental health difficulties.

Phosphatidylcholine can do a lot for the body based on decades of research. Here are some of the other benefits:

  • Improve Memory
  • Support Mental Health
  • Skin Health
  • Intestinal Health
  • Liver Health
  • Fat Metabolism
  • Weight Loss

nature’s brightening+ cocktail

Skin pigmentation is caused by the synthesis of melanin by the melanocytes through a process called melanogenesis. After the melanin pigments are synthesized, they are then transferred to the keratinocytes (the most abundant cells on the skin surface), in cellular vesicles called melanosomes. The more melanosomes that reach the keratinocytes on the surface, the darker the skin becomes. In fact, the skin produces two types of melanin: pheomelanin, in people with pale skin and red hair and eumelanin, in people with darker skin and hair and people with black skin.

Melanin synthesis is produced from the amino acid tyrosine. Tyrosine, in the presence of the enzyme tyrosinase and oxygen, is oxidized to dopa, which, in turn, is oxidized to dopaquinone. The dopaquinone then spontaneously converts to leucodopachrome, which easily oxidates to dopachrome. The dopachrome loses its carboxyl and is reorganised to form melanin.

The combination of active ingredients in BCN Lumen Advanced-Peptides acts on all stages of this process of melanin production in order to achieve a depigmenting, lightening and balancing effect on the skin, thanks to the synergistic and combined action of the three types of active ingredients: the new generation biopeptides (oligopeptides 51, 34 and 58, the decapeptide 15 and the acetyl-glycine-beta-alanine), the pigment-removing tyrosinase inhibitors (α-arbutin and extract of liquorice root) and the anti-oxidants, such as ascorbic acid, thioctic acid, vitamin B3 and glutathione.

This product also reduces melanogenic factors, inhibits melanin synthesis and increases cell detoxification. These actions have the following effects:

  • A reduction in melasma (excess pigmentation).
  • A reduction in age spots.
  • A reduction in hyperpigmentation during pregnancy.
  • A reduction in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

The function and mechanism of action of each component is as follows:

    • Biopeptides:
      • Oligopeptide-51, whose lightening effect is due to its inhibitory action at a cellular level of the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF), which is the master gene for melanocytic survival and a key factor in regulating transcription of the proteins which generate melanin in the physiology of normal pigmented cells, such as proteins related to type 1 and type 2 tyrosinases (TRP 1 y TRP 2). The result is a reduction in both the transcription factor and the tyrosinases. It also inhibits expression of the markers of melanogenesis and induces morphological changes in the melanocytes.
      • Oligopeptide-34, also acts by inhibiting melanin synthesis by reducing both the MITF factor and the tyrosinase-related proteins 1 and 2. This peptide also acts on the melanosomes, reducing their levels and blocking the transfer of pigment from the melanosomes to the keratinocytes. In addition, the oligopeptide-34 has an anti-inflammatory effect, as on the one hand it reduces the proliferation of activated T cells and lowers the volume of proinflammatory cytokines, as well as their level of transcription, translation and expression where the inflammation is due to the polysaccharide endotoxines. On the other hand, it reduces translocation to the p65 subunit nucleus of the protein complex, nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (Nf-kB), which plays an important role in inflammatory and immune responses. Finally, this peptide increases the expression of collagen and fibronectin and therefore has an anti-wrinkle effect.
      • Oligopeptide-58 and oligopeptide-68, just like the peptides mentioned above, inhibit the action (through the MITF cell pathways) and therefore, the transcription of the principal melanogenic proteins, tyrosinase 1 and 2, as well as protein kinase C-β (PKC-β). In this way, synthesis of melanin in the melanocyte is reduced. There is also a reduction in the formation of dendrites or extensions of melanocyte, the part of the cell that allows the melanosome to reach the keratinocytes in the epidermis.
      • Decapeptide-15 has the same mechanism of action as the peptides above.
      • Acetyl-glycine-beta-alanine is a peptide that inhhibits the two cytokines which stimulate the generation of melanocytes: the stem cell factor and endothelin 1, which are activated by UV rays and which modulate the melanocyte response. It also inhibits the expression of the MITF gene, it reduces the content of intracellular melanin, as well as melanophilin, both at the messenger RNA level and at the protein level.

 

    • Pigment-removing non-peptidic enzymatic tyrosinase inhibitors:
      • Alpha-Arbutin is the glycosylated derivate of hydroquinone, which is the standard depigmentation agent used in dermatology, but it is better tolerated, so can be used in cosmetics. Its depigmentation effect is produced because it effectively inhibits tyrosinase activity and, therefore, the production of melanin. It accelerates the decomposition and elimination of the melanin. Thanks to structural similarities with the tyrosinase substrates, the arbutin acts by following a competition mechanism, binding itself to the active areas of the enzyme. It is also able to inhibit the DHICA polymerase (5,6-dihydroxyindole-2-carboxylic acid), a product resulting from the oxidation of the tyrosine by the tyrosinase. It also inhibits the maturation of the melanosomes, therefore, resulting in a reduction in the synthesis of melanin.
      • Extract of Glycyrrhiza Glabra root, which contains glabridin, a molecule which is structurally very similar to hydroquinone, as well as liquiritin and isoliquertin. It disperses the melanin and affects melanogenesis and skin inflammation. It reduces the dopa-positive melanocytes (a dopa-positive reaction occurs when dopa is added to a tissue that contains melanocytes with tyrosinases). It also shows anti-inflammatory (cortisol-like) and healing properties.

 

  • Principle anti-oxidant active ingredients:
    • 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid, is a more stable acid than Vitamin C. It has an anti-oxidant action for reactive oxygen species (ROS) related to melanogenesis. It inhibits the activity of tyrosinase by binding itself to the active site of the copper-containing enzyme. It also reduces the oxidized dopaquinone.
    • Thioctic or α-lipoic acid, which, additionally, is also a non-enzymatic inhibitor of the tyrosinase. It acts by inhhibiting the expression of MITF. Its anti-oxidant capacity is the basis of its depigmenting action. It has both an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory action.
    • Vitamin B3, niacin or nicotinamide, acts similarly to the above, as an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, it prevents photoimmunosuppression and the transfer of the melanosomes (containing the melanin) from the melanocytes to the keratinocytes, so that the melanin is not released into these epidermal cells.
    • Glutathione neutralizes the free radicals, increases cellular detoxification and changes the production of dark pigmented eumelanin to light pigmented pheomelanin. It inhibits the tyrosinase indirectly by binding itself to the active site of the copper-containing enzyme.
    • Vitamin E, through its powerful anti-oxidant action slows down the ageing of the skin cells. It also combats free radicals which contribute to the deterioration of skin tissue and which are resonsible for the early appearance of wrinkles. It also offers protection from the sun as well as regenerating skin that has been damaged by the sun, due to its regenerative and healing properties. It protects the skin from environmental toxins caused by pollution and harsh weather conditions.

BCN Lumen-Peptides also contains other ingredients, among which it is worth mentioning retinol and adenosine, which promote the loss of pigmented keratinocytes through peeling, so improving the appearance, luminosity and softness of the skin. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other components of the product act together to help overall to maintain a healthy skin, that is well-nourished, perfectly-hydrated, clear, blemish-free and younger-looking.

application

Purify skin and sanitize devices first with time traveler. Apply micro-infusion to clean, bare skin on smaller areas by evenly distributing with the micro-stamp on the face, neck, and chest or wherever your chosen area of treatment is and allowing the product to sit on the skin until it is completely absorbed. For optimal results this treatment can be paired with a dr. pen or my large microneedling stamp.. The results are undeniable! The first noticeable result is a beautiful glow to the skin. I recommend applying raspberry elixir in the days following a treatment to protect new skin from sun exposure and to keep skin bright and free of sun spots. I recommend pairing this treatment with TURMERIC + GINGER + FRANKINCENSE or nature’s pain reliever + antidepressant to speed healing of the tiny little micro-channels you have created. These products should not be used if pregnant, breastfeeding, or if you have liver, kidney or autoimmune diseases.
