What is Biorepair?
Biorepair is a treatment to restore cellular structures of the skin damaged by oxidative stress caused by the influence of harmful environmental factors. Biorepair emerged as the next evolutionary step of the popular and widely-used technique, called biorevitalization. Biorepair is designed to overcome the shortcomings of the latter, serving as a more effective and more versatile instrument for the cosmetologist. Its aim is to start the process of real rejuvenation of the patient's skin and using one drug to solve several aesthetic problems.
The key to biorepair drugs is a unique method of solid-state modification of hyaluronic acid (HA): various active ingredients (vitamins, amino acids, trace minerals, peptides) are attached to HA molecules under high pressure. This innovative technique allows to achieve two goals simultaneously: a) make the molecule of HA "unrecognizable" for hyaluronidase (enzyme in human body, responsible for breakdown of HA), which protects the molecule and significantly increases its lifespan inside the skin, and b) to deliver specific substances into the skin, along with HA. Biorepair drugs retain all useful functions of biorevitalizants (based on unmodified HA): creating an optimal environment for the functioning of fibroblasts, as well as stimulating their proliferation

Biorepair is the next step in the development of aesthetic medicine and at the moment nobody has yet discovered or even understood its full potential. We are not claiming it to be a miracle cure to revolutionize medicine, as many new techniques are traditionally heralded, only to fall short of the expectations in ninety-nine out of one hundred cases. However, we are acknowledging that this technique has an enormous potential and may yet become something much bigger than it currently is. Biorepair is only one application of a radically new delivery method of nutrients into the organism, accomplished though a patented technique of binding various biological molecules to hyaluronic acid (protected by five international patents), which is then injected into the skin, attaches itself to fibroblasts, and proceeds to slowly release its “cargo” into the dermis over a period of three weeks. The effects of the treatment can vary greatly, depending on the “cargo” hyaluronic acid is carrying, and new possible applications still await discovery.
Key differences between biorepair and biorevitalization products:
I. Ability to provide long-term presence of active substances in the skin, ensuring a longer-lasting effect. (As a consequence, the frequency of injections can be reduced to once in three weeks)
II. Biorepair products contain another active substance grafted onto GC molecules. This can be a vitamin, an amino acid, or another peptide.
III. Biorepar products are more versatile than biorevitalizants and can be used to address several aesthetic problems.
The principles of biorepair:
1. Create an optimal environment for the fibroblasts to function.
Modified HA remains within the dermis for 3 weeks, moisturizing it from within and providing a comfortable environment for the functions of cells.
2. Delivery of active substances into the dermis and the creation of a “depot” from where these substances disseminate throughout the skin.
HA serves as a carrier for a large variety of active substances. It is able to serve as an effective transport due to its ability to bind to specific receptors on the surface of fibroblasts. Since the modified HA molecule is also unrecognizeable by hyaluronidase, it remains within the dermis for a long time, attached to a fibroblast, and continues to release the components bound to it gradually. When the process is complete, HA molecules are digested by hyaluronidase as normal.
3. Prolonged stimulation of the fibroblasts.
Since modified HA molecules tend to remain attached to fibroblasts much longer than the unmodified ones, contained in all other drugs, their stimulatory effect on fibroblasts also significantly prolonged. Consequently, proliferation of fibroblasts increases and new collagen is synthesized.
Biorepair products are an ideal choice for skin rejuvenation among several categories of patients, such as:
- The elderly patients, whose skin has long exhausted its natural resources and no longer can maintain an equilibrium of nutrient exchange and tissue regeneration. For these patients, biorepair provides the strongest possible boost to revitalize their skin and restore the youthful appearance.
- Patients leading an active lifestyle, constantly engaging in activities that stress the skin. This can be anything from long-term UV exposure, routine exposure to other harmful environmental factors (cold, strong winds), and even life in the heart of a modern city, filled with pollutants.
- Patients with severe time constraints, unable to visit a cosmetologist more frequently than once in three weeks, and/or needing to address several problems at once.
