Hi, this is Tracey…
I hope that you find the information below on Growth Factors helpful in your understanding of what we are using to compliment treatments such as micro-needling and fillers, as well as in the skin care that we carry. They are an important part to daily anti-aging support. Next time that you come in…please ask us how we can incorporate Growth Factors into your treatments and at home skin care regimen.
WHAT IS A GROWTH FACTOR?
Growth Factors are proteins that bind to receptors on the cell surface, with the primary result of activating cellular proliferation and/or differentiation.
KEY ROLES OF GROWTH FACTORS
Increasing cellular turnover, promoting blood vessel formation, collagen and elastin production, minimizing scarring, reduction in inflammation, increases production of hyaluronic acid, activates immune cells such as natural killer cells and macrophages.
GROWTH FACTOR TARGETS
Collagen – The protein that gives our skin structure and strength. As we age, we lose that collagen and the firmness of our skin deteriorates.
Elastin – Is what gives our skin its resilience. As we age the elasticity diminishes especially in our faces since this area generally receives more sun exposure than the rest of our bodies.
New Cell Turnover – The skin, being the largest organ in the body, is constantly in a state of renewing skin cells as the dead ones shed. As we start to age this process slows down and causes the skin to thin and lose moisture.
Loss of Subcutaneous Fat – The protective fat of the outer layer of skin that helps give the body structure is lost over time. This is one of the causes in the appearance of sagging skin.
BENEFITS OF GROWTH FACTORS
