What you can do now

Remarkable technologies that can rejuvenate your body, skin, and hair

Everybody knows that physical appearance isn’t the real measure of our worth — it’s what’s on the inside that makes us truly beautiful. But at one point or another, most people take a look in the mirror and find themselves unhappy with what they see staring back at them. Maybe it's sagging skin, a growing waistline, or thinning hair. Whatever it may be, one thing is for sure: time takes its toll on the body, and most of us care a good deal about our appearance, whether we like to admit it or not. 

Luckily, cutting-edge technology can rejuvenate your body, skin, and hair in ways that once seemed impossible. No longer do you have to be a movie star in Beverly Hills to experience cellular-level skin rejuvenation, or a millionaire to buy restorative hair products designed exclusively for you. 

But while there are hundreds of options to choose from, many of them don’t live up to the hype. The breakthroughs you’re about to read about have been highly vetted by the Life Force team of experts and have proven results.

How to Restore Lustrous Hair

The average person loses 50 to 100 hairs a day as part of the normal hair growth cycle. That’s not a problem unless the follicle starts to grow thinner hair in its place, becoming smaller and wispier in each cycle. Aging and genetics are usually the culprits of thinning hair, and by age 50, about 85% of men and 50% of women have experienced significant hair loss.

One company, Harklinikken, offers shampoos, conditioners, and night serums to help revitalize the hair follicle. What’s unique about Harklinikken is that the products — made from plant extracts and cow’s milk — are customized for each client based on their hair mass, hair quantity, and hair diameter. Results are impressive — in fact, clients who use Harklinikken typically see a 30-60% increase in the volume of their hair.

Stem cells can also be used to grow new hair. One company leading the charge is a Boston-based biotechnology company, Follica, which uses skin abrasions to stimulate the skin. It then introduces a topical compound that persuades the cells to form hair instead of forming epidermis. In other words, they’ve figured out a way to influence a stem cell on your scalp so that it decides to become a cell that grows new hair. 

In 2019, Follica reported the results of a pivotal trial, which showed an astounding 44% improvement of visible hair count after three months of treatment, compared to the modest 12% improvement of the two currently FDA-approved drugs in this field. What’s next for Follica? Phase 3 clinical trials.

The Secrets to Youthful Skin

Stem cells can also be used to rejuvenate your skin — and there’s white-hot interest within the beauty industry in developing anti-aging therapies like this. Wharton’s Jelly, a concoction made up of the connective tissue of umbilical cords, is being used by many to restore the fountain of youth. 

But if you don’t fancy the idea of having stem cells injected into your face, there are a handful of other cutting-edge therapies that can revitalize your skin, including:

  • Cryofacials: Just like cryotherapy is used to tackle inflammation in your body, it can also rejuvenate the skin on your face by kicking the natural functions of cells into high gear and boosting collagen production. The cold is no worse than a cold winter’s day, and you emerge with a smoother complexion, reduced pigmentation, and a red-cheeked glow.

  • Lasers & LED Therapy: Lasers deliver a small focus of high-intensity light and, as a result, minimize all kinds of skin damage. They have been reproduced in smaller sizes for home and are increasingly popular due to their impact on insomnia and circadian rhythms, seasonal affective disorder, and calming heart rates. LEDs have also been shown to help improve acne sun damage and reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. 

Some companies are creating skincare products that are tailored specifically to your body, lifestyle, and environment, including:

  • SkinCeuticals by L’Oréal: Their personalized product, Custom D.O.S.E, uses a patented diagnostic tool to assess your skin, and then in less than ten minutes, a compounding machine mixes and dispenses a “corrective serum” exclusively to you. 

  • Perso by L’Oréal: Perso is a smart device that cooks up customized skincare products in your own home. The Perso app uses AI to analyze your skin — taking into account your environment — and dispenses a single-dose formula on the spot, based on your needs that specific day.

  • LifeNome: LifeNome is an Award-winning Precision Health AI company that leverages biological, physiological, and behavioral data to help you choose the right products for you based on your DNA.

Losing Fat Without Exercise or Surgery

If diet and exercise have not helped reduce the stubborn body fat that accumulates once we reach middle age, CoolSculpting may be a good option. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technology that weakens fat storage cells by exposing them to extreme cold. The fat cells die, and the body then naturally eliminates the waste through urine. 

Other devices, like Thermage and Vanquish, take the opposite approach, using radiofrequency waves to heat and kill fat by melting it. One high-end device, Exilis Ultra, works its cosmetic wonders by combining radio frequency waves with ultrasound waves to melt unwanted fat while also tightening the stretched-out skin that’s left behind.

Isn’t it empowering to know that so many effective and painless solutions are available to you right now? So check out some of the companies we’ve discussed, research a few of their most innovative treatments and therapies, and then decide for yourself whether it’s time to reverse time by revitalizing the very cells of your magnificent body.
