Jalupro Super Hydro – Jalupro Classic – Jalupro HMW

Jalupro provides a full range of tissue stimulators to address clients’ profiles and ages. HMW is targeted at older patients. All Jalupro products contain HA and Amino Acids; this dual approach provides more rejuvenation and hydration properties, thus resulting in longer-lasting and more noticeable results.

Jalupro Super Hydro was the latest offering in 2021; it is perfect for highly dehydrated skin and provides a lifting action.

  • 7 Amino Acids
  • 3 Peptides
  • 3,2% LMW-HMW HA

Protection and revitalisation of the extracellular matrix. Stimulation of ligament regeneration. Stimulation of fat pad’s structure. Each of the dominant amino acids in the collagen is vitally important for high-grade collagen fibrils formation.

Why amino acids?

Amino acids are the only substrate essential for promoting any protein synthesis. The adequacy of type and number of amino acids required for protein synthesis can be predicted based on the quality and quantity of amino acids present in each protein. But collagen synthesis is different because some of its amino acids should be provided in the precursor form to activate the fibroblasts. Therefore, collagen synthesis is efficiently maintained only when specific amino acids are continuously available and present in a particular ratio. Formulating hyaluronic acid and amino acids produces a far more effective product, preserving and strengthening connective tissue and stimulating collagen production.

Profhilo® was one of the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based products for treating skin laxity. Well know in the aesthetic sector it provides a solid option for practitioners.

Sunekos 200 – Sunekos 1200

Sunekos is an injectable treatment containing a patented formula of amino acids and Hyaluronic acid. It regenerates the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) by stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts to produce a complete mix of collagen and elastin.

Sunekos 1200

Sunekos 1200 is an injectable treatment with an antioxidant action for severe wrinkles and damaged skin. It promotes youthful, natural features by improving facial volume loss, reducing wrinkles and hydrating the skin. The patent-protected formula contains hyaluronic acid and a combination of amino acids, collagen and elastin.

Sunekos 200

This intradermal treatment with Sunekos 200 corrects and protects the dermis from the signs of ageing. Sunekos is a natural product that stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, restoring elasticity and volume to the skin.

Sunekos is a great option for people who wish to maintain a more natural appearance or those who do not want toxins or fillers, or as an add on to your procedures to improve the quality of the skin. Sunekos 200 is particularly effective in the periocular area, reducing dark circles, the forehead can also be treated. Sunekos can treat various indications, including; loss of tone, skin ageing and premature skin ageing, skin dryness, solar elastosis, acne scarring, sun damage, dark circles under the eyes and fine lines and wrinkles.

Restylane® Vital
Restylane® Vital and Vital Light are both skin boosters and are Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA) gel. A shallow microinjection technique is used. Restylane Skinboosters helps to improve skin smoothness, elasticity and appearance gradually.

Sculptra®
Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production. It can be used to treat deep lines, creases, and folds to give a more youthful appearance.

Ellansé S & M *
Ellanse S is a soft, resorbable gel (a Poly-ɛ-caprolactone-based dermal filler) composed of smooth polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres. It is a hybrid dermal filler that stimulates collagen production. It combines the benefits of immediate correction of wrinkles and folds and stimulating the body’s natural collagen generation.

Due to the nature of Ellansé S & M, there are additional requirements for practitioners wishing to train. Previous experience with dermal filler is required. Practitioners who want to train in Ellansé M will also have trained in Ellansé S with a minimum of 70 procedures.

Regenerative Skin Health

Skin boosters continue the direction of the aesthetic industry of regenerative skin health. As this sector continues to mature we do see and will continue to see dermal filler used in fewer procedures and usage in more specific applications for example liquid rhinoplasty. Combining procedures like PDO threads or Silhouette Soft with skin booster technology provides the patient with a more natural aesthetic outcome.

Retaining Ligaments

Regenerative skin health sets out to use the bodies natural ability to regenerate with a little boost to help things along. One of the very interesting developments in the industry is when AbbVie typically a medically focussed pharmaceutical company bought Allergan for €53 billion, which is a lot of zeros. With a strong cellular level research branch it sets the course of regenerative skin health onto a very interesting path. The results that skin boosters provide are at a level where patients come back time after time. We all know that patients that do not gain the expected aesthetic outcome do not return for the same therapy.

All procedures and products set out to:

Reduce skin laxity – Environmental factors that contribute to skin laxity include ageing, genetics, stress, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, and smoking which reduce the collagen and elastin in our skin.

Increase skin elasticity – Skin elasticity is the skin’s ability to stretch and return to its original shape. Loss of skin elasticity is known as elastosis. Elastosis causes the skin to look saggy, crinkled, or leathery. Areas of the skin exposed to the sun can get solar elastosis.

Restore volume – As we age and lose collagen and elastin, the skin starts to sag, a hollowing out of facial areas begins as we lose volume from the facial fat pads. Injectable collagen stimulators aid in the restoring of facial volume loss and are often incorporated with traditional dermal filler.

Skin tightening – Through complementary therapy such as combining micro-needling, PRP, and traditional injectables, a more youthful appearance can be achieved with immediately visible results in many cases.

Collagen production – Collagen is such a central building block of the body, contained in bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. The word’s etymology is Greek, “kólla,” which very aptly means “glue” there are at least 16 types of collagen in the body; we concern ourselves with the four main types, type I, II, III, and IV.

Transdermal therapy

Regeneration is the end goal of transdermal therapy, making the body better at its job as we age. One of the newer buzz words to the surface is ‘3D biomodelling’ due to the overall inside out rejuvenation that tissue stimulators provide through transdermal therapy.

Suitable for multiple areas

The face, neck, décolletage, chest, hands, arms, knees and feet can all be treated. Combining treatments allows the practitioner to design custom treatment pathways to achieve individual tailored results.

Hyaluronic Acid & Skin boosters

The role of hyaluronic acid is to help bind moisture in the skin and help produce collagen and elastin. As we age, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid; volume is lost from the fat pads, interconnecting tissues lose strength. The lack of hyaluronic acid production leads to a lack of skin hydration and skin laxity, leading to the formation of wrinkles in the skin.

Skin boosters contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, also depending on the brand cocktails of amino acids and peptides. Skin boosters tend to have the consistency of a gel-like substance, which enables them to be distributed very smoothly and evenly throughout the skin.

The purpose of the skin booster is to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin through the release of hyaluronic acid and other compounds specific to each skin booster brand. That is essentially what makes skin boosters different to many other skin treatments. The purpose of skin boosters is not to cover up or hide skin imperfections. All regenerative skin health treatments can remedy these imperfections by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin.

Skin boosters are all about skin tone texture hydration and improving skin laxity. It is why skin boosters are often referred to as injectable moisturisers and are becoming an increasingly popular treatment to improve the skin’s texture, create a better skin tone, treat skin laxity while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Complementing treatment

Combining treatments provides a treatment pathway more suited to many clients expectations. From PDO threads, chemical peels, dermal filler through to IPL all benefit from paring with skin boosters. Training with A.T.A.I opens your career to a world of options.
