Growth factors are natural proteins abundant in young skin and diminish with age. A cocktail of these are used during Needling or other procedures to support new cell generation.

Multi-Peptide Growth Factor is based on the latest research into the healing and anti-aging effects of growth factors. Each serum contains high concentrations of growth factors, peptides, and other skin nourishing ingredients targeted towards improving aging and sun-damaged skin. You will see fast, visible results! Growth factors are natural proteins abundant in young skin that are essential for healthy skin function. They are involved in cell turnover and generation, collagen production, and elastin production. These functions help keep skin firm and smooth. As skin ages or suffers photo-damage, it produces fewer growth factors. Skin looks dull as cells age and are not replaced as quickly. Areas of the face and neck begin to sag as collagen and elastin production slows, and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Multi-Peptide Growth Factor Serum contains multiple growth factors to replenish the skin’s supply of these proteins and fight signs of aging

Epidermal Growth Factor helps encourage new skin cell generation to replace dull, aging skin with a more youthful, smooth, radiant complexion. Fibroblast growth factor helps to increase the production of fibroblasts, which synthesize collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient, youthful skin.

Fibroblast Growth Factor also aids in blood vessel formation, which is beneficial to healing damaged skin cells and improving circulation of nutrients and oxygen for visibly healthier skin.

Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media contains multiple growth factors present in healthy, young skin, including insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) to promote cell growth and multiplication, transforming growth factor (TGF-B2 and B3) to stimulate collagen secretion, keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) to stimulate epithelial cell growth, and others.
