Amy Forman Taub, MD of skinfo® chosen by DefenAgeTM Cosmeceuticals to offer patients the latest in anti-aging skincare with results visible in just 2 weeks.

Being on the cutting edge of skincare comes naturally to Amy Forman Taub, MD, who created in 1989. Always researching the latest advancements in cosmeceutical products to introduce to skinfo® Specialty Skincare Boutique led Dr. Taub to discover a scientific breakthrough in skincare. It’s no wonder that DefenAgeTM Cosmeceuticals chose Dr. Taub to be the first physician to roll out DefenAgeTM, a skincare line using the power of defensins to turn on our own stem cells. DefenAge SkincareDefensins are natural molecules in our bodies that fight off infection and reduce inflammation. Dr. Nikolay Turovets, a prominent stem cell scientist and founder of MediCell Technologies, discovered that these molecules can turn on very specific “sleeping” stem cells to make new skin when defensins are present. These sleeping cells are usually activated when we cut or nick our skin and spring to action to heal wounds. Using this same science, DefenAgeTM skincare can “turn on” this very specific so-called LGR6+ locus of cells, found within each pore.

“The science behind this product is remarkable. Previous growth factor products have included “soups” of many large molecules that may not be able to be absorbed in the skin and have many different functions. DefenAgeTM is made of a perfect copy of human defensins, which is small enough to be absorbed into the skin and is very specific for activating a highly targeted population of stem cells responsible for wound healing. I began using the product kit (consists of 3 products) on one of my upper arms and was really surprised to see a significant change within 2 weeks. The crepiness on my arm was visibly less that on the non-treated arm and the skin was tighter, smoother and brighter. Patients who have used it for 6 weeks have noticed a definite reduction in wrinkles and pores and a brightness that is striking.” Amy Forman Taub, MD.

A study performed by Greg Keller, MD a prominent plastic surgeon in California showed that there was significant improvement in wrinkles, evenness and pores after 4-6 weeks in 23 men and women aged 48-68 versus those who used a placebo consisting of the exact same products minus the active ingredients. This controlled study proved the clinical effectiveness of DefenAgeTM and confirmed the concept that one can use the body’s own natural defense mechanisms to activate stem cells and produce younger appearing skin. More studies are currently underway.

Additional ingredients in the products increase skin’s elasticity, tighten and sculpt the facial silhouette, brighten the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, comfort sensitive skin, minimize pores, support a natural detoxifying process, and produce a barrier on the skin, making it difficult for the aging process.

Currently, DefenAgeTM can only be purchased on a physician-endorsed site,, through select physicians and the company’s home page. Dr. Taub also offers the products at her skincare boutique, skinfo® Specialty Skincare Boutique, located in Glencoe and Lincolnshire, Illinois.
