Dermatologist Educates Breast Cancer Survivors on Benefits of Vitamin C on Damaged Tissue
Rx Systems PF is promoting breast cancer awareness in September and October bydisplaying a pink ribbon on each product label and donating 10 percent of its AgeDefense Antioxidant Serum C sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation(www.nationalbreastcancer.org). Rx Systems PF’s Serum C contains the finest USPpharmaceutical grade L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) antioxidant available for skin cellgrowth and collagen production necessary to repair tissues damaged by invasive breastcancer surgery and treatment. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“It should be no surprise that breast cancer, chemotherapy, radiation therapy andmedication required post-breast cancer treatment create a large free radical burden onthe body and skin, in addition to its negative impact on the immune system,” said RXSystems PF founder and dermatologist Dr. Lawrence Samuels. “The skin relies onantioxidants for protection against free radicals. Since the skin receives the most freeradical assault from ultraviolet light exposure, cancer and the effects related to cancertreatment, replenishing and increasing the antioxidant defense of the skin becomes anattractive strategy for wound healing and photo-repair.
“The wound-healing ability of our Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C is related to itspositive effect on collagen production and its antioxidant effect,” saidSamuels. “Collagen requires Vitamin C for hydroxylation which is a process that allowsthe collagen molecule to form a stronger molecular configuration. This strongercollagen molecule is needed to give support to the body and skin to enhance woundhealing and to maintain healthy blood vessels. In other words, Vitamin C protects smallblood vessels and has a profound effect neutralizing the free radicals generated by awound.”
Rx Systems PF’s Serum C, designed for all skin types and to use on any wound, isformulated with 20 percent L-ascorbic acid, other powerful antioxidants and advancedpH science. Applied directly on the skin following nightly cleansing, Serum C preventspremature signs of aging, lightens and brightens skin tone and helps accelerate thehealing of skin. Samuels said users can expect to see some improvement within 30days of beginning treatment.
“Once in the skin, studies show L-ascorbic acid stimulates collagen synthesis, providessun protection and protects the skin by reducing free radicals which otherwise woulddestroy skin cells and its components,” Samuels said. “The clinical benefits of theantioxidant activity of our Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C improves skin texture,reduces brown spots, improves skin tone and decreases the appearance of fine linesand wrinkles and helps prevent their formation.”
Rx System PF’s Serum C is also packaged in a unique New Age Bloc™ DeliverySystem which ensures that the user’s last application will be as potent and effective asthe first. L-ascorbic acid exposed to light and air oxidizes hourly and the socalled‘reduced-air exposure containers and liposome delivery systems’ only slow downthe process to a few days compared to Rx Systems PF’s new, innovative Age-BlocDelivery System with its complete protection from light and air.
“To produce an effective Vitamin C preparation, we use a temperature and lightcontrolledroom and expel as much free oxygen from the single-use, individual serumpackets as possible,” Samuels said. “When this process is completed, the serum iscontained in our single use Age-Bloc Delivery System packet which is sealed in an airtightfashion. The vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) with its optimal 20% free acidconcentration and appropriate 2.6 pH can be kept in the Age-Bloc Delivery Systemalmost without concern of oxidation since the packet offers permanent protection fromlight and air.”
