Growth factors claim to stimulate the skin's stem cells to repair aging and sun damage, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.
Adult stem cells are found in every-ones skin and they are activated by injury, and Growth factors act to stimulate the stem cells as if they are injured. If you scrape your knee, there will be a scab within a few hours, but what about other types of skin injury? The ultimate goal of using Growth factors in anti-aging treatments is to get the stem cells to act in repair mode when there is damage caused by the sun and aging.
Currently, scientist and medical researchers are sure of one thing regarding Growth factors - they work. What is unsure is the best possible combination of the 350 natural Growth factors to ensure the proper skin injuries are treated, ie. wrinkles and sagging skin. Many products promise an effective combination, ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Creme, Neocutis Bio-Restorative Creme, Amatokin Eye Creme, Dior Capture R60/80 XP Rich Creme, Murad City Skin Night Treatment, and SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum.
