Growth factors – the core of Skinmedica
Growth factors are found within your own body—they are proteins that promote cell growth and tissue repair. They are critical in maintaining firmness and elasticity in the skin. Growth factors can also be created and included in skincare products, so quality is a key factor. In the SkinMedica line, their edge is the quality of growth factors in combination with the types of growth factors.
What are the benefits of growth factors?
While growth factors are of course beneficial to the skin, they also promote critical cell growth and tissue repair throughout the body—including the lining of the blood vessels, the heart, the lymph glands, and body cavities. Growth factors also stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, which keeps the cells hydrated. As we age, the production of these growth factors lessens, contributing to the appearance of aging skin.
