Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins in the human body that regulate cellular processes. They bind to receptors and act as a messenger when it comes to cellular processes. As we age, collagen located in the dermis is being produced in lower quantities. This causes the skin to break down, leading to lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Adding growth factors to your skin routine encourages the skin to repair itself by producing collagen and elastin and speeding up cellular processes.
When applied topically in skincare, growth factors trick aging skin cells into behaving like younger skin cells by jump-starting processes such as collagen production or cell division to repair damaged skin. This technology provides the building blocks necessary to rejuvenate itself and allows you to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to anti-aging.
Skincare products containing growth factors are great multitaskers when tackling issues such as wrinkles, dark spots, laxity, and uneven tone and texture. Because growth factors are found naturally in the body, they are gentle on the skin. Most people experience little or no adverse reaction to growth factors, so even those with very sensitive or post-procedure skin can use growth factors.
