What are Growth Factors?
Growth factors are natural ingredients which promote the growth and repair of skin cells. These are naturally produced by the body, and in skincare products they may be sourced from stem cells, animal products, or plant material. The Skin Medica products that we carry at JanigaMDs are all human growth factors. These are shown to work the best. As we age, the skin naturally produces fewer growth factors. Using skincare products which introduce growth factors topically can reduce signs of aging, such as lost elasticity, and help promote a more youthful complexion.
Advances in skin care research have led to the development of antiaging ingredients and formulas. Growth factors have been proven to improve the appearance of discoloration and wrinkles, which are caused by the natural aging process as well as environmental damage. Janiga MDs offers professional-quality growth factor skincare products from SkinMedica®, including:
- TNS Essential Serum
- TNS Recovery Complex
Who is a Candidate for Growth Factor Skincare Products?
Growth factor products are typically recommended for those who have begun to see signs of aging in their skin such as wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots and age spots, or skin laxity. These products are beneficial for those with very early signs of aging as a preventative treatment, and in mature patients with more advanced photodamage.
