With the cosmetic industry growing more synthetic by the minute, Guna Made (goon-nah maa-day) and Guna Collagen are the natural light at the end of the tunnel!
Widely used and trusted throughout Europe since 1983, Guna Made and Guna Collagen injections have given many people a successful alternative to synthetic fillers and Botox. The natural, homeopathically derived ingredients stimulate cellular respiration, collagen production, a faster cell turnover, an increase of hyaluronic acid production, and preventive defenses against age-related skin degeneration. Guna Made and Guna Collagen push your skin to rejuvenate itself and the success of the products are undeniable based on the results seen on aging and damaged skin around the globe!
So, what is this magical, homeopathic concoction made of?
Guna Made consists of a high dilution of several ingredients, which are noted at the end of the article. Among them, the most particularly innovative components of Guna Made are hyaluronidase low dose and collagen low dose. Hyaluronidase is known as the “spreading factor”, allowing Guna Made’s collagen, catalyzers, vitamins, antioxidants, and trace elements deeper into the dermis. The localized injection of hyaluronidase stimulates the activity of autologous hyaluronidase and hyaluronic acid. This reaction helps keep the extra-cellular matrix compact. Collagen low dose promotes the production of autologous collagen and increases elasticity and strength of connective tissue. As a result, the extracellular matrix becomes firmer and plumper, which leads to a visible reduction of wrinkles and signs of aging!
Guna Collagen contains diluted and dynamized collagen D6, a pure collagen extract of animal origin (Guna S.p.a., 2011). Guna Collagen gives the added boost of protein that will dramatically improve the compactness of the extra-cellular matrix. Collagen strengthens the dermis by improving the structure of microfibrils, elastin fibers, and anchor cells that connect to other connective tissue within the skull and facial area. The stronger the connective tissue is within the dermal layer, the less likely you are to form deep wrinkles and sagging areas of skin. Guna Collagen will help you maintain a lifted appearance as you age!
Isn’t it ironic? Homeopathic remedies are purposeful in their irony. The phrase “like cures like” is used often within homeopathic medicine to explain these paradoxical effects. You can see clearly that Guna Made’s ingredients are a wonderful example of this. To further explain, hyaluronic acid levels within the body decrease over time causing the age-related symptoms of loosened and wrinkled skin. You would imagine that adding more hyaluronic acid would be the answer. However, in homeopathic medicine, the opposite is true! Hyaluronidase, the significant ingredient in Guna Made, causes further destruction of hyaluronic acid. In response, the body begins to rapidly produce large quantities of hyaluronic acid to replenish what has been lost (Jung, 2020). Therefore, the loss of hyaluronic acid “cures” the loss of hyaluronic acid! Stimulating the body’s natural abilities is amazing, isn’t it?
Guna Made and Guna Collagen injection sites align with the main facial acupuncture points that range between 12 to 16 points. Occasionally, your acupuncturist or injector will add a few more injection sites to symptomatic points, or problem areas, to give the skin an extra boost. At Omni Balanced Life Center, our acupuncturist, Dr. Luann Pham, suggests pairing Guna Made and Guna Collagen injections with a facial acupuncture treatment to experience fast-acting results. The results that can be seen from the combination treatment of facial acupuncture, Guna Made, and Guna Collagen injections are face and neck rejuvenation, skin tone improvement, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, more plump and hydrated skin, as well as a tightened, lifted, and more defined jawline, midface, forehead, and cheekbone areas! Non-surgical facelift, anyone?
Each day we hear of swelling, rashes, the formation of nodules, granulomas, blindness, ptosis, tissue death, vascular complications, and other side effects caused by poor reactions to synthetic fillers and toxic injections. With such a high possibility of harmful side effects from synthetic ingredients, why would we continue to insert them into our beautiful bodies? If you are ready to make the switch to a natural and homeopathic alternative with undeniable results, Guna Made and Guna Collagen are trusted choices!
Guna Made and Guna Collagen injections are offered at Omni Balanced Life Center.
