At its core, my work as an aesthetician is a way for me to heal my clients from the inside out. I’ve always said that your skin’s health is a good indicator of your overall health; whether you’re stressed or sick or even feeling really great, your skin is going to reflect that fact. And while I get a lot of great work done right here in my treatment room, your at-home skincare regimen is just as important in helping you get the results you really want to see.
Believe me, beauty–I’ve tried just about every skincare product known to man. When I choose the products I want to recommend to my patients, I take into account their effectiveness, their applicability to a variety of skin types, and the way they make you feel. After all, if it doesn’t feel good to apply, you probably don’t want to do it twice a day! After lots of research and use, one product line checked all the right boxes: FACTORFIVE.
FACTORFIVE skincare is at the forefront of cutting-edge aesthetic technology, which is where I like to be, too! These products use ethically derived adult stem cells to combat the signs of aging and improve the overall health of your skin. Here are just a few of the things I love about this line:
1. Ingredients are cruelty-free and ethically sourced.
Seeing the phrase “stem cells” in an ingredients list can cause a little confusion, but stem cells are incredibly powerful tools to help combat aging. FACTORFIVE uses adipose stem cells, which are ethically harvested from adult human fat. Stem cells in their skincare products help to promote healing of any imperfections, reduce inflammation, and increase your body’s collagen production to help fill in and plump up any fine lines and wrinkles.
2. They don’t use any additional harsh chemicals
On the FACTORFIVE site, it notes that their products are “free from parabens, mineral oil, sulfate, detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA, or TEA.” Lots of over-the-counter skincare products include these ingredients that can cause a lot more harm than good. For example, sulfates are harmful especially to people with sensitive skin, as they can clog the pores and cause acne. Many of FACTORFIVE’s ingredients beyond the adipose stem cells are derived from botanicals and other gentle yet effective ingredients.
3. Their products really work!
You know I wouldn’t recommend a product to you if it didn’t work! According to the site, patients across the board experienced a 73% improvement in texture, 53% pore reduction, 61% redness reduction, and 73% wrinkle improvement. I’ve seen it work before my very eyes! FACTORFIVE products are the perfect complement to treatments like microneedling and Plaxpot as they help support your skin’s healing functions and improve your skin’s overall health.
If you’re looking for somewhere to start when you’re getting into FACTORFIVE products, I’d recommend starting with the regenerative serum. This powerful yet gentle product addresses sun spots, wrinkles, texture, and more, and will leave you feeling refreshed almost instantly. Want to learn more about my favorite products?
