COLLAGEN THERAPY

 

PURIGENEX’s flagship products are collagen-based intensive skin therapies: 

ICS Intensive Collagen Serum  

ICM Ionized Collagen Mask.

Collagen of this quality has never before been offered in topical cosmetic preparations. ICS and ICM are FDA-registered, preservative-free formulas that are highly tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals. These products are indicated for all who are seeking to prevent and repair their skin from aging, sun damage, discolorations, and acne scarring.

Therapeutic Benefits of ICS and ICM Collagen

Skin Lifting

Skin recovers elasticity after using PURIGENEX collagen.

ICM Ionized Collagen Mask penetrates cells and increases the strength and tone of loose or aged skin tissue. This mask also potentizes the skin for deeper penetration of ICS Intensive Collagen Serum.

ICS Intensive Collagen Serum nourishes and fortifies the skin and activates the body’s own collagen generation.

Prevention and Improvement of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Cell aging is delayed by collagen and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients smooth and fill fine wrinkles in the epidermis, and promote cell regeneration in the basal layer of the skin. Wrinkling of the neck and around the eyes will appear to be reduced as the improvement to the epidermis lifts and conceals deeper creases in the dermal layer.

Pore Minimizing

Collagen and hyaluronic acid increase the hydration of the skin surface, absorb excessive sebum, and weaken the sebaceous glands. Together these compounds work to regulate sebum secretion, activate the regeneration of cells close to the broadening pore, and gradually, minimize the pore.

Diminishing of Acne Scars

Collagen promotes tissue regeneration in areas of the skin affected by scarring and acne. One of collagen’s functions is to create a matrix that holds the dermal cells intact and helps them migrate up to the surface layer of the skin. When new cells move upward, deep pockets in the skin tissue are filled, and the appearance of depressed scars is diminished. Collagen will also help to augment the integrity of the dermal cells by combining with the connective tissue in the skin to improve elasticity and organization. The movement and processes of healthy new skin cells are possible through this collagen reaction.

In addition, hyaluronic acid suppresses the dark pigmentation and discoloration caused by acne, laser treatment, and the interaction of oxygen free radicals with ultraviolet rays.

 

The Ionized Collagen Mask will be applied during your 8 one hour appointments at our office.  These appointments will be scheduled twice a week for 4 weeks.  $55.00/session

 

A Probiotic Cleansing Bar will be provided to cleanse the face before each treatment.  The entire face and neck will be treated after hot steam is applied to open the pores.

 

The Intensive Collagen Serum will be applied twice a day at home for 4 weeks.  $210.00

 

 

A Collagen-antioxidant supplement and Calendula facial oil will be available for purchase to complete the therapy.

We are now scheduling treatment appointments. (717)450-5364

 

 

 

 

Now offering SpectraCell Intracellular Testing

http://www.spectracell.com/patients/

 

Micronutrient Testing
SpectraCell's Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body's deficiencies.

 

Cardio Metabolic Testing
Research has shown that there are different sizes of LDL and HDL particles and some are much more dangerous than others. Having a detailed Lipoprotein Particle Profile™ (LPP™) gives your doctor the information needed to make more effective treatment decisions to reduce your risk for heart disease and even a heart attack.

 

Telomere length
Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in the telomere. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.

 

MTHFR Genotyping
Certain mutations in the gene coding for MTHFR produce an enzyme that has reduced activity.
Reduced activity can lead to elevated levels of homocysteine (a.k.a. hyperhomocysteinemia), especially when folate levels are low.
High homocysteine (>13umol/L) may double the risk of developing illness or complications.
MTHFR genotyping can provide information about potential causes of elevated homocysteine and approaches for addressing it.
Based on MTHFR and homocysteine results, physicians can develop dietary and medical recommendations - increased intake of folate alone or in combination with vitamins B6 and B12 are recommended.
All insurance accepted!
