Growth factors are proteins that play a vital role in maintaining healthy skin cell function and are plentiful in young skin. They increase collagen elastin production and improve wound-healing by repairing and regenerating healthy tissue. Their primary job is to signal fibroblast cells to produce collagen, which activates anti-aging pathways and builds a stronger dermis with a plump, smooth appearance. As we age, growth factors begin to dwindle and fibroblasts become sluggish, causing decreased production of collagen and the signs of aging become more apparent.
What do Growth Factors do?
They help your skin produce more collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin strengthen the dermis and provide better support for the epidermis!
How do growth factors work?
- They advance skin tissue repair and recovery.
- They promote the creation of collagen and fibers, which give the skin support and elasticity.
How do I choose which one to use?
Different formulas offer Growth Factor benefits for all skin types. In addition to Growth Factors, BioCream and BioGel by Neocutis are specifically formulated to aid in healing post-procedure skin. BioGel is a lightweight formula suited for oily skin types, and BioCream is deeply hydrating for dry skin. TNS Recovery Complex and TNS Essential Serum by SkinMedica contain Tissue Nutrient Solution with over 100 Growth Factors. TNS Essential Serum is a dual-chambered pump containing one chamber with TNS Recovery Complex Serum, and the second with APS Corrective Complex – a blend of peptides, vitamin C, and other antioxidants.
A balanced skin care program including growth factors will help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and restore youthful tone and texture.
