What are Growth Factors and Why are they so popular?

“Growth factors are signals that tell your skin cells to behave like young, healthy cells,”

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is a protein that naturally occurs in our skin cells. Its main purpose is to heal our skin by promoting DNA synthesis and cell proliferation. Typically, you can find traces of EGF in body fluids such as breast milk, saliva, and tears. Because they help with wound healing, epidermal cells also naturally release EGF when there is a wound.

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) main purpose is for boosting skin texture, firmness, and density. FGF stimulates collagen production and blocks collagen breakdown so that your skin will look naturally more youthful.

The discovery of EGF won biologist Rita Levi-Montalcini and biochemist Stanley Cohen the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1986. But it is only recently that medical advances have allowed Growth Factors to be commercially available in skincare.

The level of Growth Factors in your body experiences a sharp decrease when you reach around 29 years old. Studies have shown that when you’re in your 30s, the level of Growth Factors in you is less than 10% of the amount from when you were a child. This dramatic decrease slows down the speed at which your skin can repair itself, which in turn contributes to skin aging.

Using EGF skincare products can help replenish the low levels of these Growth Factors inside your body, which then helps heal the skin and prevents signs of premature aging.

We recommend using CellReju EGF Serum which is a 10ppm concentrated derma cosmetic product and also Oxytical Vial 3.98.

Using these serums together with Micro-needle Therapy System (MTS) creates great synergetic benefits as the Growth Factors can penetrate deeper into your skin. This powerful skincare combination massively rejuvenates your skin and fights against skin aging. You will experience obvious improvements to your pores, wrinkles and pigmentation!
