Using growth factor is extremely important as we get older. Growth factors are messenger proteins that are inherent in our bodies and play a role in maintaining healthy skin. They are specifically formulated to stimulate collagen.
Skinmedica has our absolute favorite growth factor serums! It uses neo-natal foreskin as a growth factor from the same donation 18 years ago. They have replicated it and housed it in endless different environments during their studies.
Growth factors help to sends signals to skin to produce more collagen & elastin and to look and act younger! They help to soften fine lines, wrinkles, and texture.
