How Lumity can aid healing

How Lumity can aid healing  image
13th October 2017

In order to fast-track healing, the body needs increased amounts of:

  • Energy
  • Amino acids
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Vitamins A, C, D and E
  • The minerals zinc, magnesium and selenium 

Lumity contains magnesium, coenzyme q10 and the amino acid acetyl-l-carnitine, which boost energy levels through ensuring more efficient energy production and transportation, ensuring the body can heal well and maintain optimum functionality.

The amino acids contained in Lumity play a vital role in maintaining a healthy immune system. They are critical in:

  • Reducing the risk of infection
  • Repairing damage
  • Regenerating new tissue

Glutamine - together with arginine and lysine - promotes the release of human growth hormone, which is crucial to the regeneration of damaged tissue. Human growth hormone also stimulates immune resilience.

Lysine, together with vitamin C, is essential in the production of collagen and elastin, which supports the growth, repair and maintenance of healthy skin, muscles and connective tissue, essential for the healing of wounds.

Omega-3 fatty acids, such as those contained in flaxseed oil, can greatly increase the number and activation of white blood cells, responsible for fighting off disease and infection. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and protect all cell membranes, enabling them to admit healthy substances whilst barring damaging ones.

Vitamin A stimulates growth of the base layer of the skin and so is crucial in wound- healing, whether of the external skin or of the body’s inner skin, which is made up of mucous linings.

By moisturising and maintaining the structural integrity of mucous linings which support healthy secretion, vitamin A helps the body fight off infectious agents. Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus – a key function in repairing fractures and breakages of bones as well as for normal blood clotting and heart function.

In order to assist with healing and to minimise clotting, vitamin E is a useful nutrient before and after surgery. It significantly assists in the repair of:

  • Skin lesions
  • Ulcers
  • Burns
  • Abrasions
  • Dry skin

and diminishes scars caused by injury or surgery. The presence of vitamin E and selenium can increase antibody formation 20-30 fold.

Zinc is an important nutrient in:

  • Healing mechanisms
  • Healthy growth and development
  • Muscle repair
  • Immune function
  • Protection from free radical damage

It also helps the body utilise and maintain levels of vitamin A. Through this action, zinc helps maintain healthy skin cells and generate new skin after injury or surgery. This function is strengthened by zinc’s role in collagen formation.

Curcumin has very strong antioxidant and antibacterial effects and is a powerful anti- inflammatory. It also supports the liver and detoxification pathways.

All the nutrients above are contained within the Lumity formula. Blended for optimum synergy, together they harness the superior healing processes of the body to ensure peak health and sustained youthfulness.

Thank you for working your magic and making me look years younger! Also a big thank you to your team for all their help and support. I love my new face!

Karolina is always a joy to work with - kind, considerate and very professional and creating an aura of trust. She makes the Ulthera treatment painless and that's not an easy task!

I have my Botox with Karolina. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and advises me on what would look good and not so good on my face. She is a person I can trust!

"I was very happy with my treatment experience. Mr Karidis , staff and facilities were excellent. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Karidis and his clinic."

"I am only three days into the recovery of my gynecomastia procedure, and already it has changed my life. I travelled from Cardiff to London to have this procedure and it was by far cheaper than having it done in my local area. Furthermore, Karidis' reputation exceeds expectations. I look forward to my follow up consultation so Karidis can see how he has changed my life. Communication from Karidis and his team - 5 star Professionalism - 5 star Results - 5 star."

For my first Velashape III treatment, Maxine made me feel really comfortable and explained exactly how the treatment would go and any after-effects I might have (I have had none). The process was smooth and painless and actually kind of relaxing. Most importantly, I can already see a MAJOR difference on the cellulite on my legs and butt. I am seriously impressed!

"My entire experience for an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation operation was faultless from a professional and caring team. I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough from the consultation, in establishing what I wanted, to his skilled work. I am absolutely delighted with the results."

"A seven week recovery journey with a couple of little detours, but navigated with care by Mr Karidis, Suzi & Martina. Explanations, reassurance & advice given from first consultation, day of operation, day one post op. and at all subsequent clinic visits, along with a good dose of friendly chit chat & laughter, (Always a good medicine!). Thank you Mr Karidis & team. No regrets here."

Brilliant consultation... I was very impressed with my consultation with Mr Karidis. Mr Karidis made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.

Outstanding in every way This is my second breast augmentation with Mr Karidis - my first experience was amazing as were the results! Second time around and once again my experience was faultless. The whole team are amazing from front of desk and Rose, to the lovely nurses pre and post-op! The after care given, which is also important, is second to none and I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and giving me back my confidence!
