How Do Stem Cells Impact Aging, and Can We Enhance Their Effects?



Did you know that scientific research shows that the natural production of stem cells decreases by 10-15% every decade! In addition, cells can develop a "memory" of past exposure to stress or toxins, this process is known as "stress memory" and is thought to involve changes in the expression of certain genes and proteins that can change the cells' ability to cope with stress.


Many of you have been following me since I solely worked in med spas as a medical aesthetician trained in injectables, primarily performing laser treatments, chemical peels, and microneedling. The main reason I left that part of esthetics was that after many years of treating my patients with laser for hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, or aging, I started to see that the results were only temporary. After a while, they had the same problems all over again. The reason is that we never strengthened or rebuilt the cell from previous damage. So, the cell only knew to continue producing what it was programmed to do. It's important to understand that temporary fixes can only provide temporary results, and addressing the root cause of the problem is key to achieving long-term, sustainable improvements in skin health.


A damaged cell would remember the harm done to its DNA, and hence continue producing the same outcome. With DMK Enzyme Therapy, we are strengthening and building the cell from prior damage. With DMK Stem Cell Therapy, we can now introduce new cells that have never been damaged before. Introducing new cells to an area where it is needed will counteract the effects of the previously damaged cells. By focusing on building healthy cells that can function optimally, you can achieve healthier, more radiant skin that lasts 5 to 10 years from now.


How do Stem Cells effect the skin's function?

Stem cells are important for proper skin function because they play a critical role in maintaining the structure and functionality of the skin. The skin is composed of several different layers of cells, each with specific functions that help protect the body and regulate body temperature.


The outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, is responsible for protecting the body from external factors like UV radiation, pollutants, and pathogens. The epidermis is composed of several layers of cells, including keratinocytes, fibroblasts, glial cells, Merkel cells, melanocytes, Langerhans cells, and subcutaneous fascia.


The basal layer of the epidermis contains epidermal stem cells, which are responsible for producing new skin cells to replace damaged or dead skin cells. These stem cells are crucial for maintaining the thickness and integrity of the skin. If the body is unable to produce an adequate amount of stem cells, the body's ability to repair and regenerate tissues and organs can decline, leading to dysfunction and disease.


For example, if the body is unable to produce enough epidermal stem cells in the skin, the skin's ability to repair itself after injury can be compromised, leading to persistent wounds or even skin cancer. In addition, sunburns can cause damage to the cells in the skin, including changes to the DNA that can lead to alterations in gene expression and protein (collagen) production.


As we age, the number and function of epidermal stem cells decrease, leading to a thinning of the skin and a decrease in collagen production, which can result in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Stem cells also play a role in maintaining the hair follicles and sebaceous glands in the skin. The hair follicles contain hair follicle stem cells, which are responsible for producing new hair cells. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, a natural oil that helps keep the skin moisturized and healthy.


Types of Stem Cells and their function

  • Embryonic Stem Cells- Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent, meaning they can give rise to every cell type in the fully formed body except the placenta and umbilical cord.


  • Adult or Tissue-Specific Stem Cells- These stem cells can generate different cell types for the specific tissue or organ function.


  • Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC)- MSC refers to cells isolated from stroma, the connective tissue surrounding other tissues and organs.


  • Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells- These stem cells have been engineered in the lab by converting tissue-specific cells, such as skin cells, into cells that behave like embryonic stem cells.



Can we activate our own stem cells?

Yes! Through our latest treatment, DMK StemZyme therapy you can activate your own stem cell production naturally. DMK's holistic approach of strengthening and rebuilding cells, as well as introducing new, undamaged cells to counteract previous damage, can help to achieve long-te



rm results. StemZyme Therapy helps refine the skin cell life cycle at every stage. It helps aid in the process of adult epidermal stem cell renewal, successful stem cell differentiation into proper various skin tissues, immune response, skin age management, and so much more.


DMK's StemZyme 50 Day Therapy is a comprehensive, multistep skin rejuvenation program designed to improve skin health and appearance. The therapy involves the use of a combination of DMK's enzyme therapy and stem cell technology to stimulate cellular communication, increase cellular metabolism, and improve the overall functioning of the skin.


This 50-day program consists of 5 treatments spaced out every 10-12 days. After the stem cell activation treatment, the next 50 days are crucial in the differentiation process of the activated stem cells. During this time, your skin will be vulnerable, so it is essential to be mindful of UV exposure. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for the first 72 hours and limit outdoor activities as much as possible. To ensure optimal results, stick to your prescribed at-home skin regimen and do not skip any steps. It is also important not to miss any follow-up appointments and not to combine any other skincare products during the 50 days.





Here are the steps involved in DMK's StemZyme 50 Day Therapy:

1. Consultation: The first step is to undergo a consultation with your DMK paramedical technician to assess your skin concerns, determine your skin type, and recommend the appropriate treatment plan.


2. Stem Cell Activation: The second step is to undergo DMK's Stem Cell Therapy. The therapist will apply a potent cocktail of plant stem cells that are designed to enhance the skin's natural regenerative abilities. These stem cells help to repair and regenerate damaged tissues, improve cellular communication, and stimulate collagen and elastin production.


3. Home Care: The third step involves using DMK's home care products to support and maintain the results of the therapy. You will receive a customized home care kit that includes cleansers, serums, and plant-based supplements that are tailored to your specific skin type and needs. During Day 1-3, you will begin taking 2 capsules of StemZyme supplements daily, 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the evening. Immediately after the first treatment, a 3-step regimen will commence every 8 hours for exactly 72 hours. After the first 72 hours, a different 3-step regimen will be initiated for the following 47 days.


4. Follow-Up: The fifth and final step is to schedule Enzyme Therapy treatments every 10-12 days. At this point the therapist will monitor your progress, assess your skin's needs, and adjust the treatment plan accordingly. The therapist will work with you to achieve your desired results and maintain your skin health in the long term.


Overall, DMK's StemZyme 50 Day Therapy is a comprehensive and effective program that can help improve the health and appearance of the skin by addressing the root causes of skin concerns and promoting cellular regeneration and repair.
