WHAT: Suneva Medical Introduces ReGenica™, the Next Generation of Growth Factor Skincare

When we got an email introducing us to the new 3 product ReGenica skincare, healing/anti-aging collection-the Advanced Rejuvenation Day Repair SPF 15-1.5 fl oz., and  Overnight Repair  1.5 fl oz (there's also the  Facial Rejuvenation Complex Post Procedure  1.0 fl oz )...

---what commanded our eyeballs---immediately-was the name of the company's leading light, Dr. Gail K. Naughton-a pioneer in the field of regenerative medicine and the "inventor" of a key ingredient in the potent and effective anti-aging serum, imho-TNS.

For those not clued in, Skin Medica's TNS is one of the few anti-aging cocktails for the skin that's used by a lot of guys we know in the medical field...and we've used for many years now----with its funky odor and all. 

We think, now, they will swear by ReGenica™'s trio...

We got an invite to test out the Advanced Rejuvenation Day Repair and Overnight Repair. from privately held Suneva Medical (the products were created by Histogen, Inc.) and of course, we jumped at the chance.

A bit of background---ReGenica™ (btw-scent free practically-we barely smelled a citrus-y thing go-in' on) was developed courtesy of many years of research and serious clinical studies (randomized, double blind)--- by respected medical pros-that scientifically proves the uniquely formulated products  synergistically help to reverse the signs of aging-reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles AND improve/smooth facial kickstarting one's own skin cells to rejuvenate and regenerate skin. 

Something called the Multipotent CCM Complex™ is the basis of the formulations...itself created by growing new fibroblasts (safe and non-controversial stem cells) in a stimulated embryonic lab environment---with the created secreted proteins, growth factors and other byproducts-harvested...resulting in the key ingredients of the company's products...aka...

 "...ReGenica contains a diverse mixture of actives, including  human growth factors such as Keratinocyte Growth Factor, soluble human ECM proteins such as collagen, and embryonic proteins which support the epidermal stem cells that renew skin throughout life." 

All naturally derived...not freakishly conjured up like Dr. Frankenstein's efforts.

NOTE: In a press release we was pointed out that ReGenica™ differs from TNS primarily-in "the environment in which the cells used to prepare the Cell Conditioned Media are grown..."

And the odor.

Important to us anyway, the readily absorbed, (kinda of a thinnish, white lotion) -ReGenica's products we tried stimulate dermal cells...without animal anything in the mix, or genetically engineered growth factors--- or phytoestrogens in the formulations...none of which we want to put on our skin.

Does it work?

We've been using both the Advanced Rejuvenation Day Repair (that basically we cannot detect we have on, once it sinks in-in about 2 seconds) once a day, first thing on cleansed skin--- and the (greaseless moisturizing)  Overnight Repair at night ...for about three weeks now. 

Given the summer assault our skin is going through as we train outdoors for triathlons...we are thrilled with how our skin looks---...something we really appreciate/ notice compared to the sun damaged, aged facial skin of the other gals at these races. And that includes women 10 years younger than us. 

Used as aforementioned, we figure the  two products, smartly packaged in a pump container that prevents contamination---should last us about 10 weeks to three months ---as we only need one serious pump per-to cover our skin.
