Growth factors? What’s it all about?
Young skin is a marvel of repair and recovery. It stays smooth and resilient because it’s able to nourish and heal itself from the inside out. However, all that work doesn’t happen magically. In fact, growth factors are behind the skin’s incredible ability to heal itself. As we age the growth factor levels in our bodies decrease. The consequence is skin damage and the visible signs of aging – fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, loss of elasticity and roughness.
Growth factors act as natural messenger proteins that allow communication between cells in our body. They are the control mechanism for all wound healing. One way in which they work is by repairing skin that is damaged from natural aging. As we age, our bodies produce lower levels of natural growth factors resulting in more breakdown of collagen. This is important for us, because collagen is the foundational support to the skin.
Facial serums are an excellent method for delivering highly concentrated nutrients deep into the skin. Products that contain growth factors can help improve the appearance and health of the skin by evening out blotchiness, enhancing elasticity, minimizing surface roughness, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
At Face Doctors Remuera we stock Medical Grade product Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum which is the first and only rejuvenating serum to combine the benefits of the proprietary growth factor blend, TNS Recovery Complex®, with potent antioxidants, peptides and other innovative ingredients to restore youthful looking skin. Do yourself a favour and help your skin be the best it can.
