  • 1.       Miracle  of  Jeunesse  Dr.  Newman  Presentation  Dr.  Newman:  “Let  me  give  you  a  little  bit  of  a  background  about  what  I  do  and  how  I  came  to  be  where  I  am  today  with  the  stem  cells.  When  I  first  did  my  internship,  I  was  very  interested  in  hormones,  fat,  diabetes,  and  obesity.  I  then  did  my  dermatology  residency,  which  also  related  to  these  same  areas  of  interest.  There  had  been  a  lot  of  surgeries  done  with  fat  in  regards  to  these  diseases  and  I  began  to  study  the  different  ways  that  people  where  conducting  these.  When  I  did  my  cosmetic  surgery  fellowship,  I  obviously  learned  all  the  traditional  ways  of  doing  surgery.  I  studied  under  different  teachers  and  different  doctors,  learning  how  each  one  would  administer  their  own  unique  treatments.    One  of  the  treatments  that  I  became  really  fascinated  with  were  the  fat-­‐grafting  treatments.  These  treatments  had  a  poor  reputation–the  fat  that  was  injected  was  not  very  well  received  by  the  body  and  would  only  last  about  three  months  before  disappearing,  leading  to  very  poor  results.  Therefore,  these  fat-­‐grafting  treatments  were  not  very  popular  with  the  public.    During  my  training,  I  learned  that  there  were  many  different  ways  of  doing  these  treatments.  One  of  the  ways  that  we  decided  to  use  in  my  practice  that  was  more  acceptable  to  me  was  to  manipulate  the  tissues  as  little  as  possible.  So,  a  lot  of  people  began  to  take  fat  out  of  the  body  and  put  it  into  sieves  and  gauze.  They  washed  it  and  did  many  other  things  to  it  but  weren’t  getting  very  good  results  once  they  put  it  back  in.  We  decided  was  to  take  a  different  approach  by  extracting  it  from  the  body,  putting  it  into  a  syringe,  and  then  injecting  it  back  in.    During  the  last  ten  to  fifteen  years  that  I’ve  been  doing  this,  I’ve  gotten  much  better  results  in  comparison  to  my  colleagues  who  were  not  doing  this.  Five  years  ago,  I  figured  out  why.  The  reason  that  my  procedures  were  getting  better  results  was  because  we  were  keeping  the  stem  cells  and  re-­‐injecting  them  back  into  the  body  instead  of  simply  washing  them  away.  When  I  figured  out  that  this  was  the  reason  why  our  fat  was  taking  better,  I  just  went  one  step  further  and  said  to  myself,  “Why  don’t  we  just  take  these  stem  cells  and  double  them,  triple  them  even,  and  then  inject  them  back  into  the  body  to  get  the  results?”  At  this  same  time,  we  were  also  using  fiberglass  on  wound  care  related  skin  grafts  for  patients  with  diabetes  and  ulcers;  we  decided  to  switch  from  fiberglass  to  stem  cells  for  the  fat.  The  stem  cells  from  the  fat  are  very  unique.  Fat  contains  the  most  concentrated  amount  of  stem  cells  than  any  other  body  part.    Stem  cells  from  fat  are  able  to  do  many  things  that  other  stem  cells  are  not  able  to  do.  They  are  able  to  become  muscle,  bone,  cartilage,  and  the  sheath  around  the  nerve  endings  without  us  having  to  manipulate  them  in  laboratory  because  this  is  how  they  are  programmed  genetically.  Stem  cells  from  other  parts  of  the  body,  like  the  blood  and  the  cord  blood,  are  not  able  to  do  the  same  thing  as  they  generally  become  blood  derived  products.  So,  when  we  took  these  stem  cells  from  the  fat  and  put  them  on  the  wounds,  we  saw  that  the  wounds  began  to  heal  and  the  skin  was  getting  better.  When  we  began  doing  the  stem  cell  lift  and  we  doubled  and  tripled  our  stem  cells,  we  also  observed  that  the  skin  was  getting  better.  Let  me  show  you  some  of  these  pictures  so  you  see  how  this  functions,  and  then  I’ll  talk  about  how  this  all  translated  into  what  Luminesce™  is  today  and  why  it  works.      (Slide  1)  So,  here  is  someone  who  has  lost  volume  in  their  face.  In  the  past,  we  used  to  think  this  was  because  of  the  bags  under  people’s  eyes.  We  now  know  that  everybody  has  bags  under  their  eyes  because  that’s  the  fat  that  supports  the  eyeballs.  When  we  change  our  weight,  especially  when  we  lose  weight  and  age,  we  lose  fat  on  our  cheeks,  which   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 2.      makes  this  fat  under  the  eyes  protrude  a  lot  more.  These  concepts  are  changing  cosmetic  surgery–we  realize  now  that  it’s  not  just  pulling  and  making  things  tighter,  but  rather  filling  and  adding  more  volume  that  gives  skin  that  youthful  look.  When  you  take  this  approach,  you  transform  a  person  into  a  much  younger,  healthier  looking  person.  This  is  just  12  days  after  and  she’s  not  bruised,  so  she’s  able  to  go  out  and  do  all  the  things  that  she  would  normally  do.    She  would  not  be  able  to  do  this  with  traditional  surgery.    Additionally,  she  would  need  an  eye  surgery,  a  cheek  implant,  and  a  lot  of  procedures  that  we  don’t  do  anymore.  The  stem  cells  are  just  starting  to  work.  It’s  going  to  take  about  three  months  for  those  stem  cells  to  incorporate  into  the  tissues  and  to  continue  to  give  her  improvement.  (Slide  2)  Here  is  another  patient.  She  has  a  lot  of  hollowness  here.  She  is  an  avid  marathon  runner  who  has  lost  a  lot  of  the  volume  in  her  face  because  she  is  very  athletic.  When  we  put  it  back  in  four  days  later,  she  looks  much  more  youthful.  If  you  take  a  look  at  her  nose  and  lips,  which  I  didn’t  actually  touch,  you  will  notice  that  the  proportions  have  changed  and  she  looks  a  lot  more  balanced.  The  proportion  of  her  nose  to  her  cheeks  makes  her  nose  actually  look  smaller  even  though  we  didn’t  touch  it.  (Slide  3)  Here’s  someone  who  had  a  facelift  10  years  ago  didn’t  like  the  way  they  looked  when  they  were  on  television.  They  were  being  told  that  they  looked  tired,  unhealthy,  and  not  as  young  in  comparison  to  her  colleagues.  We  put  the  stem  cells  here  under  her  eyes  and  next  to  the  mouth,  and  didn’t  touch  her  lips  or  her  nose.  She  is  now  much  more  youthful  and  better  looking  in  appearance.  This  is  two  years  after  and  she  has  had  very  good  results.  She  looks  very  natural.  You  wouldn’t  see  her  in  the  streets  and  think  that  she  has  plastic  surgery.  This  woman  also  had  children  and  complained  that  she  didn’t  enjoy  things  the  way  she  used  to  before  she  had  them,  so  we  took  the  stem  cells  and  actually  injected  them  into  the  vaginal  canal–her  cells  were  rejuvenated  in  this  area  as  well.  Her  comment  was  it  should  be  mandatory  for  everyone  to  do  this  after  having  children.  (Slide  4)  OK.  Now  this  is  what  I  have  the  passion  for.  This  is  a  patient  who  has  skin  cancer  and  you  just  saw  the  video  for  him.  He  couldn’t  get  anyone  to  fix  him  using  the  traditional  methods  of  reconstructive  surgery  because  there  were  no  blood  vessels  here.  All  the  radiation  had  killed  off  his  blood  vessels  and  every  time  they  would  try  to  cut  into  this  area  to  fill  it  they  would  start  to  die  off.  The  skin  didn’t  have  enough  blood  flow  to  it.  What  we  did  was  to  bring  in  the  stem  cells  from  the  corner  here,  gradually  filling  this  area  in  and  building  all  the  necessary  blood  vessels.  It  took  me  two  years  to  do  this,  but  when  you  touch  his  jaw  now,  it’s  hard.  When  you  touch  up  here,  it’s  soft.  I  didn’t  do  that,  the  stem  cells  did–they  know  what  to  do.  Keep  in  mind  this  man’s  skin  was  very  damaged  by  the  radiation  and  it  looked  terrible.  His  skin  now  looks  almost  normal  because  of  the  stem  cell  treatments.  You  would  not  be  able  to  get  these  results  with  any  type  of  reconstructive  surgery.  Some  of  the  other  benefits  are  that  you  can  use  this  on  all  skin  colors  and  you  don’t  have  to  worry  about  any  type  discoloration  or  any  of  the  issues  with  keloid  scars.  (Slide  5)   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 3.      Here  is  someone  who  didn’t  have  a  lot  of  jaw  and  wanted  to  get  a  jaw  implant.  She  came  to  me  and  I  told  her  that  we  could  do  this  without  doing  any  type  of  surgery.  We  made  the  correction  using  the  stem  cells  instead  and  this  is  right  after.  I’ve  seen  her  a  few  times  since  this  and  she  looks  fantastic.  Her  jaw  will  move  the  way  she  wants  it  to  and  it  will  change  with  her  over  time  as  she  ages,  always  looking  in  proportion  to  her  body.  (Slide  6)  Here’s  another  patient.  She  had  some  aging  issues  and  lost  some  volume.  However,  what  really  struck  me  was  her  skin.  Look  at  the  texture  here  and  here.  That  is  the  result  of  stem  cells  that  communicated  with  the  body  and  told  the  skin  to  rejuvenate.  (Slide  7)  Here  is  somebody  who  has  a  lot  of  sun  damage  and  doesn’t  have  a  very  good  jaw  line.  Here,  we  used  stem  cells  and  she  got  her  jaw  line  back.  Her  skin  has  also  improved  quite  a  bit.  Keep  in  mind  though,  that  this  is  not  a  miracle  and  we’re  not  going  to  be  able  to  reverse  everything.  However,  her  skin  is  better.  You  would  not  be  able  to  improve  the  skin  and  get  everything  looking  like  this  just  by  doing  a  facelift  alone.    While  a  facelift  would  tighten  the  skin,  all  the  lines  would  still  be  there  because  they  are  creases  in  the  skin.    (Slide  8)  Lips–when  we  did  the  lips  and  the  laugh  lines  we  had  good  results.  Here,  I’m  showing  you  how  people  get  less  swollen  and  some  people  get  more  swollen  immediately  following  the  procedure.  (Slide  9)  We  can  also  use  the  stem  cells  on  men.  Men  don’t  like  to  have  anyone  know  that  they’ve  done  anything,  so  the  stem  cells  are  a  great  approach  because  there  are  no  scars  and  they  don’t  have  to  worry  about  hiding  the  hairline  and  looking  different.  (Slide  10)  We  can  also  do  the  hands–basically,  you  can  do  any  body  part  that  you  want.  The  telltale  sign  with  any  person  is  that  they  typically  improve  their  face  and  forget  about  their  hands,  so  I  generally  try  to  match  the  face  to  the  hands  so  you  can’t  tell.  (Slide  11)  Here  is  someone  who  didn’t  like  their  nose  and  had  a  little  loss  of  volume.  You  can  see  where  everything  sort  of  fell  down.  We  did  her  nose  and  her  under-­‐eyes  and  everything  got  lifted  back  up.  Her  nose  is  straighter,  but  it  doesn’t  look  bigger  because  the  proportions  have  changed–it  actually  looks  smaller.  The  whole  concept  is  now  focusing  around  proportions  and  volume.  All  this  was  done  without  any  surgery;  she  got  right  back  off  the  table  and  went  back  to  work.    She  was  actually  my  nurse.     primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 4.      This  is  how  we  got  to  here,  where  we  are  today.  We  continued  to  see  improvements  with  each  treatment  we  did  on  burn  victims  and  people  with  ulcers.  In  the  laboratory,  when  we  were  growing  all  these  cells,  we  saw  that  these  cells  actually  communicate  with  one  another.    I  don’t  know  if  anyone  has  heard  about  Latisse®  and  all  these  eyelash  products  that  have  come  out,  but  they’re  basically  all  here  because  of  prostaglandins.  They  took  all  these  things  that  the  cells  produce  and  they  said  “Oh,  this  one  does  this  and  this  one  does  this,”  and  they’re  all  chemical  reactions.  The  cells  that  we  used  to  make  Luminesce™  in  the  laboratory  are  stem  cells.  When  you  put  them  in  the  laboratory,  they  talk  to  each  other  using  a  language  called  chemical  language.  Our  bodies  and  our  cells  use  chemical  language  to  talk  to  each  other.  We  use  words,  and  our  cells  use  chemicals.    These  chemicals  include  cytokines,  interleukins,  prostaglandins,  and  growth  factors.  We  took  all  these  basic  language  materials  that  were  being  produced  in  the  laboratory  by  these  cells  and  we  bottled  it.  There  are  no  cells  or  live  tissue  in  Luminsce™,  but  it  is  a  live  product.      Here  is  the  difference:  there  are  no  cells  in  the  product,  but  everything  that  is  in  there  is  produced  by  a  cell.  When  you  grow  these  cells  in  a  laboratory,  no  two  cells  are  alike,  just  as  no  two  people  are  alike.    So,  every  time  we  grow  them,  we’re  going  to  have  different  batches,  and  every  time  we  do  a  cycle  in  the  laboratory  to  get  these  stem  cell  products,  we  are  going  to  have  a  little  bit  of  variation.  However,  the  variation  is  minimal  and  the  product  is  still  within  the  norm.  The  batches  are  tested  to  make  sure  they  contain  all  the  proper  amounts  of  ingredients,  but  there  may  be  a  small  amount  of  color  variation  from  batch  to  batch.    Luminesce™  is  a  live  product  and  this  is  the  reason  it  works.  When  you  apply  Luminesce™  to  your  skin,  the  cytokines  and  interleukins,  which  are  the  communication  methods  that  the  cells  are  using,  are  introduced  to  your  skin.  They’re  going  to  go  into  your  cells  and  tell  them  to  rejuvenate,  rebuild,  and  renew  themselves,  and  that’s  why  you’re  going  to  get  the  improvements.  A  lot  of  people  are  getting  improvements  in  their  pores,  skin  texture,  and  the  overall  feel  of  their  skin  as  well.  However,  it  takes  time  for  these  cells  to  replicate  collagen.  Although  it  takes  between  three  to  six  months  to  see  the  results,  some  people  feel  the  change  much  sooner.  Let’s  take  a  look  at  some  of  the  data  that  we  have–88%  saw  that  the  improvement  in  their  skin  got  better,  75%  saw  that  the  texture  was  smoother  and  nicer,  70%  said  their  skin  was  firmer,  though  that  does  takes  a  little  bit  longer,  and  70%  said  the  fine  lines  got  better.  We’re  not  talking  about  the  deep  lines  here–those  are  the  creases  that  I  showed  you  that  we  couldn’t  even  fix  with  surgery–but  rather  the  fine  lines,  and  those  will  get  better.  (Slide  12)  We  have  some  testimonials  from  patients  who  had  used  the  product  for  different  things.  This  woman  got  a  burn  and  eight  days  later,  after  applying  Luminesce™,  she  doing  much  better  and  she’s  healing.      (Slide  13)  Here  is  another  example  of  a  burn  that  improved  after  the  application  of  Luminesce™.    I’ve  seen  improvements  in  patients  with  rosacea,  acne,  and  all  sorts  of  inflammatory  processes.  They  apply  Luminesce™  onto  the  affected  area  and  it  reduces  the  inflammation.  The  cytokines  interact  with  your  cells  to  reduce  inflammation  and  improve  your  skin.     primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 5.      That’s  where  we  are  today  with  Luminesce™.  The  next  project  we’re  working  on  involves  using  the  stem  cells  to  make  the  rest  of  the  skin  care  product  line.  While  Luminsce™  is  doing  most  of  the  basic  things  that  we  want  it  to;  it  doesn’t  cover  exfoliation,  sun  block,  or  all  of  the  other  things  that  are  necessary  for  good  skin  care,  and  that’s  what’s  we’re  going  to  focus  on  in  the  future.  What’s  really  exciting–and  I’m  looking  forward  to  seeing  if  we  can  make  this  work–are  the  hair  products.  I’m  going  to  try  to  test  these  stem  cells  and  see  if  we  can  get  really  good  hair  growth  using  the  chemical  language  that  stem  cells  use  to  communicate.  The  goal  is  to  signal  the  cells  to  help  stimulate  hair  growth  instead  of  stopping  it  from  growing.    See,  the  reason  we  lose  our  hair  is  because  our  body  gets  a  signal  to  stop  the  hair  from  growing.  If  you  do  the  opposite,  or  block  that  action,  you’re  able  to  re-­‐grow  the  hair,  and  this  is  how  we  hope  to  achieve  this.     The  Miracle  of  Jeunesse  Questions  and  Answers   Presented  by  Dr.  Nathan  Newman,  M.D.  Dave  Phelps:  We  have  a  number  of  very  excellent  questions  that  all  of  you  have  submitted.  I’m  going  to  ask  these  questions  and  Dr.  Newman  will  provide  the  answers.  Dr.  Newman,  why  don’t  you  come  up  here?  Alright,  the  first  question  that  has  been  asked  is  the  following:  “Dr.  Newman,  you  have  discussed  the  stem  cell  lift.  Can  you  correlate  that  with  the  product  Luminesce™?”  Dr.  Newman:  Basically,  we  are  using  true  stem  cells,  meaning,  the  cells  themselves.  We’re  taking  the  cells  from  the  fat,  separating  it  out,  and  then  injecting  it  back  into  the  body.  The  cells  are  producing  what  is  in  Luminese™,  but  there  are  no  cells  in  Luminesce™.  Does  this  make  sense?  In  the  laboratory,  we  grow  the  stem  cells  and  the  language  we  talked  about  earlier  and  we  bottle  it.  In  the  body,  they  are  producing  it  naturally,  and  that’s  how  it  works.  Now,  a  lot  of  times  I  tell  my  patients  to  use  Luminesce™  in  conjunction  with  a  stem  cell  lift  because  they’ll  see  faster  and  better  results.  The  skin  gets  better  and  that’s  how  they  correlate.    The  main  thing  to  understand  is  that  there  are  no  live  cells  within  the  Luminesce™.  Dave  Phelps:  Thank  you.  “Can  you  discuss  further  if  there  are  studies  showing  the  effects  of  Luminesce™  to  substantiate  the  results  that  we  are  seeing?”  Dr.  Newman:  I  don’t  know  if  you  remember  when  I  was  showing  the  slides  with  the  percentages.  That  was  actually  a  study  that  was  done  on  the  product  and  that  study  was  basically  showing  how  people  who  use  the  product  under  controlled  circumstances  benefited  from  the  product.    If  you  want  scientific  studies  in  terms  of  biopsies  and  looking  at  it  under  a  microscope,  it’s  hard  to  do  this  in  a  cosmetic  setting.  How  many  of  you  are  willing  to  have  a  scar  on  your  face?  Technically,  I  could  do  this  and  put  the  scar  on  their  arms,  but  for  cosmetic  reasons,  most  people  are  not  willing  to  have  a  scar.    However,  if  you  look  at  the  product  in  terms  of  the  other  things  that  we’ve  done–for  example,  wound  healing–there  is  a  lot  of  data  for  the  stem  cells.  There  is  a  lot  of  data  out  there,  but  not  on  the  product  for  cosmetics  by  itself.  If  you   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 6.      look  at  the  product  objectively,  which  is  what  occurred  with  the  clinical  study,  and  look  at  the  skin,  you  will  see  that  this  is  where  the  results  are.  Dave  Phelps:  “In  the  KABC  video,  the  results  of  your  stem  cell  lift  are  very  dramatic.  Can  we  say  that  the  same  technology  is  what  makes  Luminesce™  such  a  powerful  product?”  Dr.  Newman:  Yes,  absolutely–it’s  the  same  technology.  It’s  the  stem  cells  that  are  doing  the  rejuvenation.  The  difference  is,  when  I’m  doing  the  procedure,  I’m  also  putting  in  fat  to  give  it  volume.  Luminesce™  is  not  going  to  give  you  volume  or  make  you  plump  up  like  that.  What  it  does  do  is  tell  your  cells  to  renew  themselves,  making  your  lines  better  and  your  skin  smoother.  It’s  going  to  take  away  some  of  the  damage  that  has  occurred  over  the  years  from  aging,  lifestyle,  or  sun  exposure.  This  is  the  same  process  that’s  going  on  when  you  apply  Luminesce™  to  your  skin–you  are  telling  your  skin  to  make  new  collagen,  elastin,  and  blood  vessels  so  as  to  give  the  skin  a  more  youthful  appearance.  The  introduction  of  fat  into  the  skin  is  the  major  difference  between  the  product  and  the  stem  cell  lift  procedure.    Dave  Phelps:  “Anti-­‐aging  products  are  very  popular  with  people  in  the  baby  boom  generation.    If  younger  people  in  their  20s  and  30s  for  example,  use  Luminesce™  before  wrinkles  are  a  problem,  will  the  stem  cell  technology  of  Luminesce™  help  to  slow  the  onset  of  the  visible  signs  of  aging?”  Dr.  Newman:    If  you  notice,  there  was  a  wide  range  in  the  age  of  most  of  the  patients  that  I  showed  you.  Many  of  the  patients  that  you  saw  were  just  turning  back  the  clock  a  little  bit.  If  you  wait  until  you’re  50  or  60  to  try  to  start  taking  care  of  yourself,  obviously  you’re  not  going  to  do  as  well  as  if  you  had  started  earlier.  If  you  use  Luminsce™  at  a  younger  age,  you’re  not  reversing  your  age;  you’re  simply  starting  to  maintain  yourself  earlier.  This  is  why  maintenance  is  so  important.  Using  Luminesce™  will  help  you  to  better  maintain  your  skin  and  your  cells,  which  is  the  whole  idea  of  preventive  medicine–to  make  sure  we  don’t  get  the  damage  in  the  first  place.    You  and  can  use  it  anywhere  on  your  body.  We’re  using  it  predominately  on  the  face  because  that’s  where  most  people  are  worried  about,  but  I’ve  had  people  using  it  on  their  hands  and  necks  as  well.    Dave  Phelps:  “I  am  using  only  Luminsce™  on  my  face  these  days,  but  for  makeup,  etc.,  can  I  also  use  other  products  in  combination  with  the  Luminsce™?”  Dr.  Newman:  Absolutely.  Luminesce™  is  only  one  part  of  a  skin  care  line.  That’s  why  we’re  going  to  bring  in  other  products  to  compliment  Luminesce™  that  will  incorporate  this  technology.  I  currently  have  patients  who  use  Luminsce™  and  I  tell  them  that  they  still  need  to  use  sunscreen  and  moisturizer.  I  tell  them  they  can  continue  to  use  make-­‐up.  The  first  thing  that  should  go  on  the  skin  once  you  wash  your  face  is  Luminesce™.  After  that,  you  can  put  anything  else  you  want  on,  so  long  as  you  don’t  put  anything  else  between  your  skin  and  Luminsce™  because  this  will  prevent  the  product  from  penetrating.    The  important  chemical  language  I  spoke  about  earlier  will  not  be  able  to  go  through  another  cream  to  penetrate  into  your  skin.  If  you  want  the  effects  of  Luminesce™,  you  have  to  wash  your  skin,  apply  it,  and  then  put  everything  else  on  afterwards.  If  you  choose  to  apply  a  cream  on  top  of  that,  you’re  probably  going  to  get  better  results  because  it  will  drive  the  product  into  the  skin  and  you  will  get  better  effects.   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 7.      Dave  Phelps:  “Today,  Luminesce™  is  generally  promoted  to  be  used  on  the  face.  What  benefits  are  to  be  expected  if  we  use  Luminsce™  on  other  parts  of  the  body?”  Dr.  Newman:  Basically,  Luminesce™  is  going  to  rejuvenate  the  skin.  Most  people  use  it  on  their  face,  neck,  and  hands;  however  you  can  also  use  it  on  other  places  such  as  your  chest.  Other  people  choose  to  use  the  product  for  other  reasons  besides  cosmetic.  Let’s  say  for  example,  you  have  a  lot  of  rosacea  and  the  redness  often  associated  with  it–Luminesce™  will  take  away  some  of  that  redness.  It  will  also  help  to  reduce  a  lot  inflammatory  acne,  which  is  often  very  red  and  painful.  If  you  have  eczema,  atopic  dermatitis,  or  a  rash,  it  will  help  to  reduce  the  inflammation  and  calm  the  skin  down.  This  is  what  people  have  used  the  product  for  most  often.      Other  doctors  have  told  me  they’ve  used  the  product  for  canker  sores  and  have  seen  positive  results.  I’ve  also  had  people  tell  me  they’ve  used  it  for  post-­‐neuralgic  pain,  which  are  nerve  endings  that  have  become  sensitive.  Most  recently,  one  of  my  patients  from  England  emailed  me  about  a  laser  procedure  she  had  done,  after  which  she  had  become  very  sensitive  to  the  sun.  After  having  done  these  treatments,  she  wasn’t  able  to  resume  her  normal  activity,  even  with  the  application  of  creams  and  the  sunscreens.  She  was  truly  suffering,  but  after  doing  the  combination  of  the  procedure  and  using  Luminesce™  on  her,  she’s  doing  much  better.  I  was  able  to  take  that  inflammation  away  and  re-­‐train  the  nerve  endings  to  recreate  new  ones  by  promoting  the  natural  cell  growth  through  the  stem  cells  in  Luminsce™.    Dave  Phelps:  “At  Jeunesse,  we  emphasize  the  adult  stem  cell  technology  that  makes  Luminesce™  such  a  unique  product.    Is  there  any  connection  between  Luminesce™  and  embryonic  stem  cells?”  Dr.  Newman:  Excellent  question–let  me  give  you  a  little  background  on  what  stem  cells  are.  Stem  cells  are  cells  that  can  become  other  cells.  They  are  basically  multi-­‐tasking  cells  that  fix  and  replace  other  damaged  cells.  The  term  “embryonic  stem  cell”  refers  to  a  cell  that  comes  from  an  embryo.  Human  beings  come  from  these  embryonic  stem  cells.  These  types  of  cells  can  become  anything–different  parts  of  your  body  or  different  parts  for  the  organs  in  your  body–and  to  date,  this  lack  of  control  with  embryonic  stem  cells  is  really  what  most  of  the  research  and  the  controversy  is  about.  There  are  many  ethical  concerns  about  the  use  of  “embryonic”  stem  cells.  The  technology  used  to  develop  Luminesce™  only  involves  adult  stem  cells.    There  is  no  connection  whatsoever  to  embryonic  stem  cells.  The  technology  used  to  create  Luminesce™  uses  adult  stem  cells  that  are  harvested  from  human  fat.  It  is  in  these  fat  tissues  that  the  greatest  concentration  of  stem  cells  may  be  found.  These  fat  tissues  come  from  people  who  have  been  screened  and  blood  tested  before  we  collect  the  fat  to  make  sure  they  don’t  have  any  diseases.  We  then  take  the  fat  and  grow  it  in  a  lab,  and  we  test  it  again  to  make  sure  there  is  no  contamination,  including  viruses  and  micro-­‐bacteria.  Once  we  do  all  this,  screen  it,  and  determine  its  safe,  we  can  use  that  product  in  your  bottle  of  Luminesce™.  It’s  natural,  it’s  safe,  and  it’s  perfectly  compatible  with  natural  body  processes.  It  is  a  perfect  product  because  it  actually  belongs  on  your  skin.  Dave  Phelps:  “Does  the  amount  of  Luminesce™  you  put  on  your  face  make  a  difference?    If  a  little  bit  is  good,  is  more  better?”  Dr.  Newman:  It  depends  on  who  you  ask.  There  is  no  limit  to  how  much  you  can  use,  but  the  logic  that  “the  more  you  use,  the  more  it  benefits”  is  flawed.  You  should  use  enough  to  cover  the  area  you  are  treating  and  you  should  do  it   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 8.      frequently  to  maintain  this  area.  You  have  to  do  this  twice  a  day  using  the  amount  that  is  already  measured  that  is  supposed  to  cover  your  face.  Honestly–no  one  I  know  uses  one  pump.  My  wife  and  I  use  two  to  three  pumps  to  cover  our  faces.  Use  however  much  covers  your  face.  I  mean,  if  you  feel  you  need  more  you  can  use  it.  Will  you  get  better  results?  You’ll  probably  get  faster  results  because  you’re  covering  more  of  an  area,  but  once  you’ve  covered  it  and  you  keep  putting  on  more,  I’m  not  sure  if  you’re  going  to  get  any  more  results.    Dave  Phelps:  “Will  there  be  any  additional  products  available  using  the  same  stem  cell  technology  used  in  Luminesce™  that  might  improve  or  remove  heavy  pigmentations  and  deep  age  spots?”  Dr.  Newman:  Regarding  the  age  spot  question–most  age  spots  are  from  sun  exposure,  though  some  skin  discoloration  is  from  different  post-­‐inflammatory  changes.  Let’s  say  for  example,  you  get  acne,  a  rash,  or  a  burn,  and  then  you  get  discoloration  afterwards.  Another  example  would  be  malassezia  or  other  spots  that  can  occur  from  hormonal  changes  that  are  causing  skin  discoloration.  These  spots  are  not  all  the  same  and  the  cause  will  really  dictate  what  the  results  will  be.  I’ve  had  some  people  and  patients  come  up  to  me  and  say  they’re  using  the  product,  their  skin  is  getting  better,  and  the  discoloration  is  going  away.    I’ve  also  had  some  people  tell  me  they’ve  used  everything  on  their  skin  and  it’s  still  not  going  away.  Again,  the  cause  will  dictate  what  the  results  will  be.  Some  people  will  see  improvements  of  their  discoloration  and  their  tone  will  get  better,  while  others  may  need  to  add  additional  products–which  we  talked  about  coming  out  with–to  help  to  do  that.  Still,  some  other  people  may  need  laser  treatments,  chemical  peels,  and  stronger  treatments  to  target  those  areas  to  get  the  skin  color  to  be  more  even.  To  answer  your  question  of  whether  or  not  it  helps–it  absolutely  will  help  to  even  your  skin  tone.  Will  it  get  rid  of  everything?  No,  it  will  probably  not  get  rid  of  everything.  Dave  Phelps:  “Do  you  have  any  advice  on  how  we  should  store  this  product?  I’ve  notice  that  in  hot  weather,  if  the  product  is  in  my  car,  it  gets  a  little  bit  thinner,  but  the  slippery  texture  is  still  the  same.    Do  you  have  any  comment  about  this?”  Dr.  Newman:    Yes.    Oh,  you  want  the  answer?  OK.  We  talked  about  this  being  a  live  product.  So,  when  we  grow  this  in  the  laboratory  and  we  get  the  stem  cells,  we  want  to  put  it  on  the  skin.  The  skin  is  at  a  pH  of  5.5–  it’s  acidic;  7  is  neutral,  and  anything  below  it  is  acidic.  Your  skin  is  at  a  pH  of  5.5,  which  is  ideal–that’s  where  you  want  it  to  be.  If  we  want  to  put  a  cream  on  the  skin  to  make  it  better,  we  want  it  to  be  the  same  pH.  You  want  it  to  be  below  7  and  about  at  5.5,  and  you  don’t  want  to  go  too  far  below  this  because  you  will  start  to  peel.  If  you  want  it  to  improve  your  skin  tone,  you  will  need  it  to  be  around  5.5.      When  we  get  the  stem  cells  to  make  this  product,  that’s  where  we  are  ideally  putting  it  in–at  5.5.  If  we  take  this  product,  bottle  it,  and  put  it  in  the  refrigerator,  it’s  probably  going  to  maintain  longer  than  if  we  were  to  put  it  in  the  hot  sun  of  Tuscon,  AZ,  or  somewhere  that’s  really  hot.  If  you  put  it  in  the  sun  you  will  denature  the  product.  Like  any  product,  putting  it  in  extreme  heat  will  break  it  down  because  that’s  what  heat  does.  You  don’t  want  to  store  the  product  in  a  very  hot  location–instead,  try  to  maintain  it  at  room  temperature  so  that  it  won’t  change  the  pH  of  the  product  or  the  quality.  Does  the  product  still  work  if  you  don’t  do  this?  Yes,  but  it  might  not  be  as  effective,  depending  on  how  much  heat  exposure  it’s  had.  If  you  really  boil  it,  it’s  not  going  to  work  that  well.  Dave  Phelps:  “Due  to  the  live  nature  of  the  ingredients,  does  even  the  slightest  variation  in  the  viscosity  or  color  affect  the  efficacy  of  the  product?”   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 9.      Dr.  Newman:  The  color  changes  that  you’re  seeing  are  due  to  the  pH  indicator  that  we  put  in  the  product  at  the  laboratory.  We’re  going  to  take  that  indicator  out  so  that  no  one  has  to  worry  about  that  anymore.  The  main  thing  to  keep  in  mind  with  regards  to  the  pH  of  the  product  is  that  we  keep  it  within  the  proper  parameter  to  ensure  that  we  continue  to  get  the  same  sort  of  product  consistently.  Before  we  bottle  the  product,  we  check  each  batch  to  make  sure  that  these  parameters  are  correct.  Again,  if  you’re  going  to  expose  the  product  to  heat,  it’s  going  to  denature  it  and  cause  a  runny  consistency.  In  terms  of  efficacy,  it’s  going  to  be  as  effective  as  long  as  you  don’t  expose  it  to  heat,  regardless  of  whether  or  not  the  color  is  a  bit  whiter  or  pinker–this  doesn’t  make  any  difference.  Dave  Phelps:  “Is  it  possible  for  the  product  to  be  too  rich  for  the  skin?  Why  do  people  sometimes  have  red  spots  after  using  it?”  Dr.  Newman:  Remember  that  this  is  a  live  product  and  it’s  talking  to  your  cells.  If  you  have  some  issue  in  the  area  that  you’re  treating,  those  cytokines,  interleukins,  or  whatever  process  is  going  on  in  your  skin,  is  interacting  with  Luminesce™  and  the  product  is  trying  to  heal  it.  Luminesce™  is  trying  to  tell  your  cells  to  heal  themselves.  Sometimes,  one  of  the  ways  your  body  heals  itself  is  by  creating  an  inflammatory  reaction  to  something  that  it  doesn’t  like,  so  it’s  possible  that  you  could  have  a  micro-­‐infection  or  something  else  going  on  that  you  can’t  see;  once  you  apply  Luminesce™,  it  reacts  to  this  infection.  However,  it  should  go  away.  If  you  notice  blotches  or  redness  that  doesn’t  go  away,  then  this  is  not  normal–it’s  probably  this  type  of  reaction.  I  have  never  seen  this  happen  to  anybody  in  my  practice  who  has  used  the  product.  If  you  have  specific  people  who  are  experiencing  this,  I  would  like  to  know.  Dave  Phelps:  “Are  there  side  effects  or  negative  indications  that  can  be  expected  from  using  Luminsce™?”  Dr.  Newman:  Luminesce™  is  the  most  natural  product  out  there–it’s  as  close  as  you  can  get  to  applying  your  own  stem  cells,  so  any  side  effects  are  basically  how  your  body  reacts  to  these  cells.  Hypothetically,  you  can  have  reactions  to  anything  you  put  on  your  skin.  Generally,  because  its  such  a  natural  product,  I  have  not  seen  one  person  in  my  practice  whose  has  had  a  reaction  to  it.  Though  I  have  heard  that  a  few  people  have  had  some  redness  or  some  reactions  to  it,  again,  it  may  be  a  reaction  to  something  else  they  are  putting  on  their  skin,  or  pre-­‐existing  condition.  I’m  still  trying  to  figure  out  if  this  is  what’s  happening,  but  I’ve  never  seen  an  allergic  reaction  to  the  product,  and  I’ve  never  seen  anybody  have  any  problems  while  using  the  product.  Hypothetically,  anybody  can  be  allergic  to  anything,  including  any  sort  of  topical  cream,  but  it’s  highly  unlikely  with  this  product.  Dave  Phelps:  “Sometimes,  when  I  watch  infomercials  on  television,  some  products  seem  to  promise  immediate  results  that  seem  too  good  to  be  true.  In  your  medical  opinion,  how  long  should  people  who  are  using  Luminesce™  expect  to  see  benefits?”  Dr.  Newman:  Good  question.  Actually,  there  are  products  that  can  give  you  immediate  results,  though  they’re  only  topical  and  not  in  the  skin.  These  products  are  made  so  that  they  will  tighten  up  the  skin  right  away  once  they  are  applied,  but  once  you  wash  them  off  or  after  a  few  hours,  the  effects  goes  away.  The  effects  are  not  in  the  skin,  but  rather  on  the  skin.  The  difference  here  is  that  we’re  affecting  inside  the  skin  and  not  on  top  of  the  skin.  With  Luminesce™,  we’re  penetrating  into  the  skin  and  cells.    It  takes  time  for  processes  to  happen  in  your  body.  Nothing  happens  right  away.  I’ve  had  people  see  improvements  in  their  skin  within  just  one  to  two  weeks,  and  I’ve  also  had  people  using  it  for  months  and  months  who  keep  getting   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 10.      more  and  more  improvements.  The  reason  that  improvements  often  take  a  bit  longer  is  that  it  takes  three  months  for  collagen  regeneration,  starting  from  the  time  you  apply  the  product.  This  is  simply  how  our  bodies  work–  no  cream,  dermatologist,  or  laser  is  going  to  change  this  because  we  cannot  change  nature.  So,  if  you’re  seeing  changes  right  away,  these  are  topical  changes  resulting  from  the  turnover  of  the  cells;  this  can  happen  in  about  a  week.  However,  the  more  permanent  and  long-­‐lasting  results  that  are  occurring  in  the  deeper  layers  of  the  skin  are  going  to  take  three  months.  Therefore,  if  you  really  want  to  test  a  product  on  the  skin  for  long-­‐term  results,  you  should  wait  until  at  least  three  months  after  application.  Dave  Phelps:  “Is  there  a  shelf  life  to  Luminesce™?”  Dr.  Newman:  Yes,  two  years.  Audience:  Are  there  any  preservatives?  Dr.  Newman:  The  product  has  natural  preservatives.  It  has  to  have  a  natural  preservative  because  it  is  a  live  product;  otherwise,  it  would  only  last  two  days.  There  are  no  chemical  preservatives.  Everything  in  the  product  is  natural.  Dave  Phelps:  “Will  there  be  any  future  for  stem  cell  technology  to  make  eyelashes  grow  longer  or  fuller??  Dr.  Newman:  Yes,  that’s  what  we’ve  been  working  on.  Dave  Phelps:  “Does  the  quality  of  the  product  change  under  any  conditions  other  than  what  you’ve  already  talked  about,  such  as  exposure  to  high  heat?”  Dr.  Newman:  The  quality  of  the  product  doesn’t  change,  but  the  results  can,  depending  on  what  you  are  actually  doing  to  your  skin.  If  your  skin  is  at  the  right  pH,  meaning,  if  your  skin’s  at  a  healthy  pH  of  5.5,  you’re  going  to  get  a  better  result  than  if  your  skin  has  inflammatory  areas  that  are  not  doing  well  and  your  skin’s  pH  is  6.5–it’s  going  to  take  longer  to  get  the  result.  If  you  have  a  lot  of  things  to  heal  in  your  skin,  it’s  going  to  take  you  longer  to  get  the  long-­‐term  results.  If  you  have  good  skin  to  begin  with,  you’re  going  to  get  results  faster  and  be  able  to  focus  on  maintenance.  Dave  Phelps:  “It  seems  like  Luminesce™  has  fantastic  results  with  fine  lines,  wrinkles,  and  color  spots–what  about  more  significant  issues  such  as  turkey  neck?”  Dr.  Newman:  Thanksgiving?    OK.  Dave  Phelps:  Is  that  a  clinical  term,  or  is  that  a  colloquial  term?  Dr.  Newman:  Well,  “turkey  neck”  is  the  result  of  one  of  two  things:  it’s  either  an  accumulation  of  fat  under  the  neck,  which  would  need  to  be  taken  out  because  it  is  hypertrophied  and  there’s  too  much  in  there–in  which  case  Luminsce™  is  not  going  to  help–or  it  could  be  your  skin’s  elasticity.  When  you  lose  elasticity,  your  skin  gets  loose  and  droops,  and  no  longer  has  the  ability  to  snap  back  like  a  stretched  rubber  band.  Instead,  it’s  as  if  somebody  stretched  it  and  it  just  stayed  that  way.  In  these  cases,  cream  is  not  going  to  help  and  neither  is  the  serum–even  the  stem  cells  by  themselves  are  not  going  to  be  of  any  help.  You  will  have  to  go  through  the  process  of  doing  a  more  dramatic  cosmetic  procedure.  But,  the  whole  idea  is  to  start  using  Luminesce™  when  you’re  younger  instead  of  waiting  until   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 11.      you’re  at  the  point  where  your  turkey  neck  is  hanging  down  to  here.  You  want  to  prevent  you’re  skin  from  getting  so  saggy  that  it  loses  its  elasticity,  and  work  towards  maintaining  its  youthful  memory.  When  I  pinch  my  skin,  it  goes  back  to  where  it’s  supposed  to–that’s  the  idea.  Dave  Phelps:  In  network  marketing,  we  have  boundless  optimism.  I’m  very  sorry  for  “turkey  neck”.  Here  is  the  next  question:  “I  have  used  Luminesce™  for  about  two  months.  The  blackheads  around  my  nose  never  go  away.  Some  days  there  are  less,  some  days  there  are  more.  Please  explain.”  Dr.  Newman:  Good  question.  Blackheads,  whiteheads,  cysts,  and  milia,  are  not  going  to  go  away.  All  these  things  are  not  going  to  go  away  by  using  Luminesce™  because  they  are  the  result  of  clogged  pores.  Clogged  pores  need  to  be  opened  up.  If  you  have  people  that  can’t  wait  for  us  to  get  the  next  line  of  products  that  will  help  them  with  their  blackheads  out,  I  would  suggest  that  in  the  meantime,  they  either  get  facials  to  remove  the  blackheads  or  use  exfoliants  like  salicylic  acid  that  open  up  the  pores  and  remove  the  blackheads  in  conjunction  with  Luminesce™.  Also,  a  lot  of  people  who  think  they  have  blackheads  on  their  nose  actually  don’t–they  have  little  hairs,  however  these  will  not  going  to  go  away  by  using  Luminesce™  either.  Dave  Phelps:  “One  thing  that  appears  to  be  so  special  about  Luminesce™  is  that  it  seems  to  be  one  of  the  only  products  on  the  market  that  uses  adult  stem  cell  technology.  I  have  seen  some  other  similar  sounding  products  advertised,  but  when  I  looked  into  them,  they  really  had  nothing  to  do  with  stem  cell  technology.    Can  you  tell  us  if  our  product  is  the  only  product  using  stem  cell  technology  today?”Dr.  Newman:  Luminesce™  is  not  the  only  product  using  stem  cell  technology,  but  it  is  the  only  product  using  adult  human  fat  cells  and  that’s  what’s  unique.  There’s  a  lot  of  hype  right  now  because  of  changes  in  the  American  government  policies  on  stem  cell  research.  The  government  began  to  allow  stem  cell  research  to  take  place,  and  suddenly,  overnight,  everything  had  to  do  with  stem  cells–stem  cell  apples,  stem  cell  plants,  and  stem  cell  everything.  All  these  ideas  are  more  of  a  gimmick  than  true  science.    There  are  a  lot  of  stem  cell  products  that  are  in  development  right  now.  The  main  benefit  that  we  have  with  Luminesce™  over  these  other  products  is  that  it  is  very  unique–it  uses  human  and  not  animal  stem  cells,  taken  from  fat  and  not  anywhere  else.  These  types  of  stem  cells  are  the  best  type  to  use  for  your  skin  and  provide  the  most  benefits  with  the  most  natural  results.  Are  there  other  companies  who  are  going  to  try  to  mimic  us?  I’m  sure  there  will  be,  but  this  type  of  product  takes  years  to  produce.  Luminesce™  is  not  an  easy  product  to  produce–it  is  actually  very  difficult  product  to  produce  because  it  contains  live  product.      A  lot  of  people  will  tell  you  that  they’re  doing  the  same  types  of  things  that  we  are.  I  don’t  know  if  any  of  you  do  research  on  some  of  these  other  products  that  are  out  there,  such  as  the  stem  cell  creams  with  the  apples,  but  the  problem  is  that  nobody  regulates  these  things  and  consequently,  you  have  to  be  very  careful.  Often,  they  simply  write  “stem  cell”  on  the  bottle,  but  you  have  to  ask  yourself  questions  like  “what  lab  is  it  being  made  in  and  what  types  of  tests  are  they  doing?”  It’s  very  difficult  to  know  how  true  these  product  claims  are.  I  can  tell  you  right  now  that  we’re  the  first  ones,  we’re  the  only  ones,  and  we’re  the  best  ones.  Dave  Phelps:  “I  really  like  your  explanation  that  the  cells  communicate  with  each  other.  Does  this  mean  that  our  product  actually  stimulates  the  production  of  collagen  when  you  put  it  on  our  face?”   primbon.MantraUANG.net
  • 12.      Dr.  Newman:  Yes,  that’s  exactly  what  happens.  It  not  only  stimulates  collagen,  it  tells  your  cells  to  renew  and  build  new  blood  vessels.  The  whole  idea  of  using  the  stem  cell-­‐like  language  is  to  get  the  stem  cells  to  repair  themselves.  In  terms  of  Luminesce™–once  you  apply  this  product  to  your  skin,  it’s  going  to  penetrate  and  interact  with  your  cells.  It’s  going  to  tell  the  cells,  “Listen,  you  need  to  get  better.”  You  may  have  an  inflammatory  process  that  is  occurring,  like  in  rosacea  or  acne–  in  these  cases,  Luminesce™  is  going  to  go  in  tell  your  cells  to  work  to  fix  this.  Dave  Phelps:  This  is  the  last  question.  “We  consider  it  to  be  a  great  privilege  that  you  are  helping  Jeunesse.  What  is  the  most  exciting  thing  that  you  can  tell  all  of  us  about  stem  cell  technology  that  will  help  us  to  build  our  business?”  Dr.  Newman:  The  most  exciting  thing  is  that  this  is  no  longer  science  fiction–this  is  a  true  and  clinically  tested  product  that  is  not  just  in  the  laboratory  anymore.  We’re  using  it  and  we’re  doing  it.  Science  has  come  a  long  way  in  the  last  five  years  with  regard  to  stem  cells.  Things  have  changed  a  lot  and  the  face  of  medicine  will  continue  to  change  because  of  stem  cells.  Most  of  you  have  already  heard  about  Randy’s  knee–what  he  had  done  to  him  will  be  standard  medical  care  in  five  or  ten  years.  We’re  not  talking  about  your  parent’s  generation  when  they  didn’t  even  have  lasers;  we’re  talking  about  things  changing  very  quickly  here.  In  the  next  five  years,  stem  cells  will  become  a  very  important  and  integral  part  of  medicine  and  we’re  on  the  forefront  of  that.  We  have  very  good  products  that  have  come  from  stem  cell  technology  and  we  also  have  a  lot  of  experience  with  reconstructive  and  cosmetic  procedures  that  are  also  based  on  this  same  technology.  We’re  working  on  developing  the  next  product  that  will  come  from  this  technology.  Hopefully  we  can  achieve  success  with  the  hair  products  I  mentioned  before;  as  this  will  definitely  revolutionize  what  we’ll  be  seeing  is  cosmetic  treatments  as  well.  Dave  Phelps:  Ladies  and  gentlemen,  please  join  me  in  thanking  Dr.  Newman  with  a  round  of  applause.     primbon.MantraUANG.net
