An extremely loyal consumer base that reorders over and over proves Cellese hit the mark in the anti-aging market. Now, medical practitioners are reporting that Cellese’s AnteAGE products are of significant benefit in improving healing after laser, dermabrasion, chemical peels, and medical microneedling.

“We’re not surprised” says Dr. John Sanderson, the CEO of Cellese and a former medical director at Johnson and Johnson. “A special population of stem cells controls healing in all tissues. They originate within the bone marrow and patrol the body via the blood stream. When injured tissue is encountered, they can differentiate into muscle, bone, cartilage, or skin cells, but their more important role is to act as command and control of the entire healing process, telling all the other cells what to do.”
Cellese cultures these special cells in sterile laboratory containers and harvests the pro-healing bio-signals they produce. The bio-signals, called Stem CytokinesTM by the company, are the primary active ingredient in AnteAGE products. The spent cells are discarded so the products are cell free.
“The key to AnteAGE being so effective is it replenishes the bio-signals that are abundant in our youth. Our healing slows because our population of these cells plummets with age. The skin acts younger because the effect is like having lots of stem cells again” explained Sanderson. “Of particular importance in aiding healing following aesthetic treatments is these cells also produce powerful anti-inflammatory signals, and as everyone knows, too much inflammation is definitely a bad thing.” Inflammation is pro-aging in all tissues and linked to most diseases and debilitating conditions in the elderly. In skin, it leads to wrinkles, scarring, and too much or too little pigmentation.
Early adopters of AnteAGE began reporting healing benefits following cuts and scrapes, burns from stoves and the sun, and even “road rash” from bicycle falls. Users with rosacea reported reduction or elimination of their flare ups. The first true medical usage was following fractional carbon dioxide laser resurfacing of the face.
Allen Howes, the President of Lasering USA, a national laser distributor, compared AnteAGE MD to another product in a split face trial on himself with highly positive results. Further clinical tests demonstrate up to a 40% reduction in post-laser recovery time. The company now includes AnteAGE products as part of its recommended post-procedure protocol.
More recently, Dr. Lance Setterfield, author of the Concise Guide to Dermal Needling, became intrigued by the science behind AnteAGE, noting that it addresses the negative effects of inflammation on skin healing. Anti-inflammatory bio-signals are abundant in the fetus, whose skin regenerates without scars. Making adult healing more like the fetus is, by definition, anti-aging.
Dr. Setterfield will be demonstrating and lecturing about microneedling at the AnteAGE booth at the International Esthetics, Cosmetics, and Spa tradeshow in Las Vegas, June 21-23, 2014. In the booth with him will be Dr. John Sanderson and Dr. George Taylor (physician/scientists of Cellese) and Ms. Debora Masten, former Chairwoman of the Oregon Board of Cosmetology and a licensed esthetics instructor.
