Growth Factor creams are the most modern component of a good anti-aging skin care regimen. They feature synthetically manufactured proteins that encourage Collagen and Elastin growth in the skin.
The most-commonly-used proteins include:
EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor)
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor)
PDGF (Platelet- Derived Growth Factor)
Scientists in the laboratory setting for over 20 years found that injecting into skin cultures the Fibroblasts (Collagen/Elastin producing cells) in these skin cultures were stimulated to produce increased amounts of Collagen/Elastin, which give the skin a tighter, firmer, more hydrated and toned appearance. Sophisticated skin care companies, such as Regenica® and Neocutis® have incorporated these growth factor proteins into cosmetically-elegant creams and have been able to prove:
Penetration into live human skin
And their ability to grow Collagen/Elastin
Proven by skin biopsy and microscopic evaluation of live human skin!
