+ Use of Ethocyn Serum

Q: What is Ethocyn?

A: It is a patented, clinically proven, unique ingredient that effectively stimulates increased production of important elastin fibers, which are crucial for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin. $20 million dollars has been spent on research and development over 19 years. It is a non-steroidal anti-androgen.

 

Q: How does Ethocyn work? (see Mechanism of Action)

A: Ethocyn helps reverse the signs of aging by stimulating an increased production of elastin fiber levels in the skin. It does this by acting as an anti-androgen, effectively blocking DHT from binding to the DHT receptor and hence preventing the signal to cease production of elastin from occurring.

 

Q: How is the level of DHT receptors determined?

A: Genetic predisposition

 

Q: Who is the inventor of Ethocyn?

A: Chantal Burnison invented the Ethocyn molecule and developed the Ethocyn Serums using the most up to date research and skin care ingredients. She is an American biochemist, inventor, and attorney, and the COO of BCS Pharma Corporation.

 

Q: Does Ethocyn work for all skin types?

A: Yes, Ethocyn has been tested and found to be efficacious on men and women of various ages and ethnicities.

 

Q: Does Ethocyn work equally well from women and men?

A: Yes, Ethocyn has been tested and found to be efficacious on men and women of various ages and ethnicities.

 

Q: What is the difference between Ethocyn and other skin aging products?

A: Ethocyn is the only skin care ingredient in the world that can safely and effectively return your elastin fiber levels to that of a 20 year old -- resulting in firmer, younger looking resilient skin, with less wrinkles.

 

Q: Does the Ethocyn serum penetrate the dermis?

A: Yes, Ethocyn is effectively able to penetrate into the dermal layer and move into the fibroblast cells.

 

Q: When will I start seeing results once I start using the product?

A: Clinical studies show that individuals will notice improvement in their skin between 4 to 8 weeks after starting correct application and usage.

 

Q: What happens when I stop using the product?

A: Once you cease using the Ethocyn serum, your elastin levels will gradually return to your original level. No damage will have occurred.

 

Q: How do I apply the serum?

A: Directly after cleansing, squeeze about 2 drops onto your fingertips and apply to the wrinkle-prone and delicate eye areas of your face, targeting the areas of most concern first. Repeat morning and evening.

 

Q: If I use more of the product than recommended will it work better/faster?

A: The Ethocyn serum metabolizes every 8-10 hours. Clinical studies show that using the recommended dosage and application will produce the best results.

 

Q: Do I apply moisturizer before or after I apply Ethocyn Serum?

A: You apply moisturizer (and any other skin care product) at least 1-2 minutes after applying the Ethocyn Serum.

 

Q: Is the Ethocyn Serum safe for sensitive skin?

A: Yes, Ethocyn Serum is safe to use on all skin types. Many clinical studies on safety and efficacy were performed and presented (please see the clinical trials section of our website). Ethocyn is hypoallergenic and compatible with other products used to treat intrinsic and photo aging. Ethocyn is completely metabolized in the skin within 8-10 hours to ensure that none is absorbed in active form into the bloodstream.

 

Q: Can I use the Serum on my hands, chest, and feet?

A: Yes, you can use the serum to target all areas of concern on your body. Keep in mind that the dosage is formulated for application on the face and neck area specifically and so you may find that you use the product more quickly.

 

Q: Can Ethocyn replace Botox?

A: Ethocyn serum targets intrinsic aging and the elastin levels of your skin. Botox is used to fill wrinkles to decrease their appearance.

 

Q: If I use the Ethocyn Serum less than twice a day, or I skip a day, how does this affect my skin aging?

A: The Ethocyn Serum works most effectively if applied twice daily, morning and evening. Try to avoid skipping your application to ensure maximum benefits for your skin.

 

Q: Will the product work if I apply it under makeup and other moisturizers?

A: Yes the product will work if you apply makeup afterwards. Ensure you wait 1-2 minutes before applying moisturizer, SPF, or make up after applying the Ethocyn Serum.

 

Q: Is Ethocyn a moisturizer?

A: The Ethocyn ingredient is not a moisturizer, but the Ethocyn Essence Serums contain other highly beneficial and nutritive moisturizing ingredients.

 

Q: Does sunscreen interfere with the effectiveness of Ethocyn?

A: No, sunscreen does not affect the performance of the Ethocyn Serum and protects your skin from sun damage.

 

Q: At what age should people start using Ethocyn?

A: After 25-35 years of age, no matter what our genetic make-up, we will have more DHT receptors than anti-androgens and that is when people should begin using Ethocyn.

 

Q: Can someone under 25 years of age use the products?

A: Yes, they can use the product to ensure maximum elastin levels are achieved and maintained. Clinical studies indicate that Ethocyn will not produce “too much elastin”: the skin adapts and the levels will plateau.

 

Q: How long after I stop using the product will my skin go back to looking saggy?

A: Your skin will gradually go back to its original elastin level; this can vary from person to person.

 

Q: What if I open the vial and stop using it for period of time and then want to start again, will the product still work?

A: Our Ethocyn Essence Vials are viable for 24 months after the initial opening.

A: Yes, clinical studies show that the Ethocyn Serum is safe to use on acne prone skin and sensitive skin.

 

Q: How should I store the product?

A: The serums are best kept at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

 

Q: What if I want to apply Ethocyn without cleansing beforehand?

A: Using a cleanser to ensure all dirt, oil, and impurities are removed ensures maximum efficacy of the Ethocyn Serum. If you feel like applying the Serum throughout the day, it will effectively moisturize and nourish your skin. However, for best results do not skip the twice daily cleansing plus application ritual.

+ Skin Anatomy and Care

Q: What are collagen and elastin?

A: Collagen: Structural fibers. Collagen is a protein forming the structural grid that holds other skin structures. It gives the skin its strength and durability. Like any other protein, collagen is composed of amino acids. However, it is unusually rich in a few specific amino acids, proline, hydroxyproline, lysine and glycine. Collagen does not stretch very well. Scar tissue is composed of collagen. Collagen is located in the reticular dermis.

Elastin is also a protein, the ‘Important youth protein’. It is more stretchable than collagen and helps maintain skin resilience and elasticity. It provides skin with snap back like a rubber band. Elastin contains two special amino acids, desmosine and isodesmonsine. When both elastin and collagen are abundant and undamaged, the skin easily regains its shape after being stretched or folded. Elastin makes smooth, firm and resilient skin. Just as collagen, elastin deteriorates with age, leading to wrinkles and facial sag. Elastin is located in the papillary dermis.

 

Q: Why do I need elastin?

A: Elastin fibers are recognized by leading dermatologists to be the important ‘Youth Protein’ needed to maintain skin’s elasticity and snap back and prevent skin from sagging. High elastin levels mean firm, younger looking skin with less wrinkles.

 

Q: Where can I test my elastin levels?

A: Your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can perform a simple punch biopsy to test your elastin levels.

 

Q: What is the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic aging?

A: Intrinsic aging: As we chronologically age our skin produces less elastin fibers, and this level of elastin depletion is genetically predisposed. Intrinsic aging is completely independent of photo (sun) damage.

Extrinsic aging: This is caused by environmental factors, i.e. sun, wind, smoke, pollution, free radicals, etc.

 

Q: What is photo aging?

A: Photo aging is damage caused by the sun; Ethocyn does not target this area. It is important to use a sunscreen to avoid further sun damage.

 

Q: What is elastin?

A: Elastin is a protein in connective tissue that is elastic and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting.
