Why is the presence of natural antimicrobial peptides in BIOSKINREPAIR important in the treatment of scars?
The natural antimicrobial peptides in BIOSKINREPAIR destroy the pathogens present on the surface of the skin and in the skin pores and begins to act like a barrier between compromised skin surfaces and the environment. Pathogens such as bacteria and viruses enter the body through breaks in the skin, gaining access to the blood stream and causing an increased immune system reaction. This activity interrupts the repair and healing process, which interferes with the normal lay down of skin cells. Additionally, we see evidence of erythema (redness) around the affected site, as well as some superficial edema (swelling) and an excited production and lay down of collagen. By blocking the microbial pathway to the blood stream, BIOSKINREPAIR allows the immune system to heal the damage in an environment similar to that in which a broken bone heals inside the body.
