Recently launched in the UK and available from
www.pro-ferm.com - Dr Paul Clayton describes
here how this completely revolutionary new facial skin treatment using
Beta-Glucans works and how effective it can be:
PRO-FERM MODES OF ACTION
Aesthetic surgery has made a great deal of progress in the last 50
years, but has reached the point of diminishing returns. The
procedures are expensive, and getting more so as surgery becomes more
invasive. Stories of surgical error abound, as the increasing demand
for cosmetic operations has lured unqualified medical personnel into
the clinics. And now the rise of the so-called ‘super-bugs’, bacteria
resistant to all forms of treatment, has made even trivial procedures
Surgery, however, was always a crude approach to anti-ageing, based on
now out-moded concepts of what facial ageing actually is. Basically,
the theory held that as skin began to sag, all that could be done was
to cut, trim the excess material and stitch it back into place –
rather like re-upholstering an old chair.
That mechanistic model is now being replaced by something altogether
We now know that ageing of the face consists of at least three
distinct elements. The first is a deterioration of the texture of the
skin, which becomes thinner, less elastic and less able to retain
hydration. This is due to accumulating damage to the extra-cellular
matrix, a fine three-dimensional mesh of micro-fibers which determine
the strength, firmness, smoothness and hydration of the skin.
The second is sagging of the features and deterioration of the general
architecture of the face, due to loss of bulk and tone of the muscles
and ligaments that under-pin the contours of the face and neck. And
the third is a loss of bone (particularly affecting the upper and
lower jaw), which is primarily due to dental problems.
As these three elements in the ageing process are so different, there
is no single anti-ageing treatment – from creams to surgery – capable
of genuinely rejuvenating the face. Now, however, there is at least a
genuinely effective and profoundly innovative way to re-structure and
rejuvenate the fine texture and bloom of the skin and above is an
actual electron scan of the same wrinkle before and after 4 weeks use
of Pro-Ferm which contains a specially formulated beta-glucan.
SKIN TEXTURE: THE EXTRA-CELLULAR MATRIX
There are a number of products which claim to increase the rate at
which skin cells grow; and many of these use pentapeptides as their
main actives. These molecules can increase skin cell turnover, but are
relatively indiscriminate and may, unwittingly, act to promote the
growth of latent cancer cells. A safer and more physiological way to
achieve improved skin structure is to stimulate the skin’s own immune
system, an approach which leads directly to improved skin texture and
at the same time improves skin immune function; thus, it is believed,
reducing the risk of cancer and infection also.
This is the mode of action of the ProFerm range of skin care products.
These deep-acting agents contain high-end emollients and a patented
new molecular complex which combines 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans with
hyaluronic acid, called Glucaferm TM. Glucaferm TM is a highly
bioactive molecule with amazing physiological properties.
The 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans are the most potent immuno-stimulants known.
They activate immune cells in the body, instructing them to work
harder to catch and kill bacteria, and to accelerate tissue repair and
healing. Various Ministeries of Defence now give beta glucans in
tablet form to their troops to increase their resistance to
Beta glucans are not able to penetrate the skin; but when complexed
with hyaluronic acid (the skin’s natural hydrating agent), the
compound molecule of Glucaferm TM sinks into the skin like rain into
fertile soil. There is an immediate improvement in skin hydration due
to the hyaluronic acid, resulting in better bloom. Meanwhile, in the
background, the beta glucans get to work.
The beta glucans activate a population of cells deep in the skin
called the Langerhans cells (click
here for penetration tests). Langerhans cells are a key element in the
skin’s defence; they protect against microorganisms that could
otherwise cause disease, and clear away damaged skin cells. They also
promote the growth of new skin cells and stimulate the fibroblasts,
another key group of cells in the skin responsible for generating new
extracellular matrix. Once activated, the Langerhans cells and the
fibroblasts gradually overhaul the skin, giving it a spring-cleaning
from the inside and renewing the extracellular matrix. The overall
effect is a complete rejuvenation of the skin’s texture. There is a
rapid improvement in skin thickness, elasticity, strength and
hydration. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles fade and disappear.
PHASE 2: SKIN TEXTURE: PHARMACO-NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT
If everyone were well-nourished, the application of Glucaferm TM would
produce consistently excellent results. In some cases, however, the
effectiveness of Glucaferm TM is restricted by Type B malnutrition.
This condition is surprisingly common in the developed countries, and
can be described as multiple micronutrient depletion. In persons with
Type B malnutrition, the ability of the Langerhans cells to respond to
Glucaferm TM is reduced due to shortfalls in the catalysts and
building blocks they require to regenerate the skin. This can most
effectively be restored to normal with a Type B restoration programme,
in supplement form.
This comprehensive micronutrient repletion programme is the second
element in the ProFerm programme. Taken with meals, the Pro-Ferm+
supplement is absorbed into the bloodstream and reaches the Langerhans
cells and the fibroblasts through the sub-dermal capillary beds. Once
the Langerhans cells have been supplied with all the micronutients
they require in order to function properly, the arrival of Glucaferm
TM through the skin moves them and the fibroblast cells into an
optimal level of activity, and regeneration of the skin is

Pro-Ferm FACIAL REJUVENATION
Subjects who have experienced the bi-phasic programme (Pro-Ferm creams
and supplements) are overjoyed with the results. In the best cases the
effects are almost comparable to surgery except that there is no
bruising, scarring or risk of surgical and post-surgical
complications; and, of course, there is the huge improvement in skin
texture and hydration which surgery cannot affect.
Many who have had surgery report that their friends comment that they
look less tired – but not, usually, less old. Pro-Ferm users report
that they hear from friends and colleagues that they really do look
younger. What is more, as the broad spectrum Pro-Ferm micronutrient
replacement programme takes effect, hair and nail condition improve -
as does, in many cases, general health and well-being. The overall
effect leaves Pro-Ferm users looking and feeling younger, and
