Joel Schlessinger MD discusses the importance of growth factors in skin careEvery so often a new buzzworthy skin care ingredient appears on the market. For the past several years, many people with anti-aging concerns have been turning to products with growth factors, which are known for their ability to rejuvenate skin. In this blog, Joel Schlessinger MD explains the power behind growth factors and why they’re a great addition to any anti-aging skin care routine.

Growth factors help diminish wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of aging, Joel Schlessinger MD says.

Growth factors are natural proteins that send messages between living cells. Their primary job is to tell fibroblast cells when to produce collagen. As we age, our bodies produce lower levels of natural growth factors, leading to a breakdown in collagen and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Topical growth factors help regenerate and repair aging skin tissue. These proteins essentially trick aging skin cells into behaving like younger, healthier skin cells. With continued use, topical growth factors can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven tone and a rough texture. The result is a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Joel Schlessinger MD recommends adding growth factors to your daily skin care routine.

Dr. Schlessinger suggests Alphaeon Beauty Epidermal Growth Serum, a new serum that pairs growth factors with hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants to help promote the appearance of youthful, rejuvenated skin. In clinical studies, more than 80 percent of patients experienced an overall reduction in the appearance of wrinkles with this serum.

SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum has a best-selling formula of growth factors, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides to hydrate, firm and revitalize aging skin. With continued use, you’ll see results after just one month with best results appearing in three months.

For the delicate eye area, try Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream (with PSP), which contains a proprietary blend of growth factors, cytokines and interleukins that help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This hydrating eye cream also minimizes puffiness and dark under-eye circles for a more youthful appearance.
