AI, Cellular Aging and Facial Fat Loss, Chris Gibson Busts all the Myths and Misconceptions

Influencer, skincare expert, best-selling author, & licensed esthetician, Chris Gibson shares his 35+ years of expertise and advocacy for safe and effective skincare practices. With over 370,000 followers across YouTube and more than 54,000 on Instagram, Gibson leverages his platform to review products and educate his audience on the nuances of skincare and the importance of individualized routines. 

Artificial Intelligence, the buzzword has percolated in various sectors including skincare. Several companies are developing AI-powered apps that use your smartphone camera to analyze your skin and recommend personalized skincare regimens. These apps can identify factors like wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and pores, and recommend products that target your specific concerns. Yet, we know that skincare needs differ from individual to individual. On the other hand, it is necessary to recognize the strengths of ingredients in products both OTC (over-the-counter) and prescription for each individual. 

Gibson states, “Right now these recommendations by AI are very basic. Machine learning presents a way for professionals to curate information by skin type, skin disease, and general applications.” He further adds, “AI, in my opinion, is nowhere near replacing PERSONAL evaluations from an esthetician or dermatologist.” Furthermore, data privacy for AI is a work in progress with many agencies scrambling to reign in any potential misuse. This, according to Chris, has potential dangers in revealing personal information. 

Beyond conventional skincare practices, Gibson delves into the realm of cellular aging and its implications for skin health. Traditional topical skin care works on the surface of the skin to enhance the look and health of the skin. The inside-out approach of cellular anti-aging instead, focuses on things like better cellular health, collagen production, and activation of the cell’s mitochondria. Certain substances in the form of supplements, stem cells, and practices like intermittent fasting, address the aging process at the cellular level. Cellular aging products (Nicotinamide mononucleotide) strengthen cells and give them a longer life, thereby slowing the aging process, along with less inflammation, and measurable improvement in the melanin spots along with the amount and depth of skin wrinkles. There has been a real focus on these benefits for wound healing and several scientific studies have shown the efficacy of, for example, red light therapies. 

Chris Gibson shares supporting cellular aging products, “The long-term outlook for this type of approach to aging is very positive although we are still somewhat early in the research. The studies are also showing relatively safe applications for long-term use with measurable benefits for health and longevity.”

Another topic that has garnered attention in recent years is the potential impact of medications on facial appearance and health. Medications like Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, and Zepbound, are primarily prescribed for conditions such as diabetes and obesity. These medications are inaccurately used for the loose excess skin and hollow appearance of the face associated with weight loss. Gibson sheds light on the potential side effects of rapid weight loss associated with Ozempic usage, commonly referred to as ‘Ozempic face.’ “This term was coined by a New York dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank,” shares Gibson. He emphasizes the importance of medical supervision by endocrinologists and dermatologists who recommend gradual weight loss to mitigate these effects, especially for individuals at higher risk of loose, sagging skin.

As regulatory agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scrutinize the safety and efficacy of medications like Ozempic, Gibson advocates for greater transparency and accountability in the skincare industry. He applauds platforms like YouTube for implementing verification measures to ensure that only qualified individuals disseminate skincare advice, thus safeguarding consumers from potentially harmful practices.

Gibson’s journey to becoming a skincare expert was deeply personal. Struggling with severe acne in his youth, he embarked on a quest to find solutions beyond conventional treatments. Through experimentation with various products and dietary changes, he experienced firsthand the transformative power of holistic skincare approaches. This experience fueled his passion to share his knowledge and insights with others facing similar challenges.

His book, “Acne Free in Three Days,” resonated with audiences across North America, propelling Gibson into the spotlight of major news and radio networks. Building on this success, he founded the online community Skin So Fabulous, laying the foundation for his influential social media presence. 

In an industry inundated with misinformation and sensationalism, Chris Gibson stands as a trusted voice of reason and expertise. Through his books, online community, and social media presence, he continues to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their skincare and aging journey. As the skincare landscape evolves, Gibson remains committed to guiding his audience with integrity, authenticity, and a deep understanding of the complexities of skin care and aging.
