Growth Factors: The Secret That Rejuvenates Aging Skin

Everyone knows that the key to a healthy relationship is good communication. Without it, individuals grow apart and once close relationships inevitably come to an end. The same is true of your cells. These microscopic factories are responsible for countless functions to maintain your health and beauty, and they rely on external signals to know which tasks to perform and when. If vital communication is disrupted or cut off, the cell’s performance decreases and it will eventually die. This is where growth factors come in. 

What are they?

Growth factors are naturally abundant proteins and peptides (essentially small proteins) that move between your cells with the purpose of communicating important messages. They trigger receptors located on cell surfaces, this starts a sequence of chemical reactions for maintenance and growth.

You could liken it to a lock and key mechanism. When the growth factor turns on a cell receptor, it’s like inserting a key into a lock. Once in place, the cell is commanded to make the necessary building blocks (proteins) for division and restoration in a process called protein synthesis. When it comes to your skin, this flurry of activity includes generating healthy new skin cells and repairing existing damage, while encouraging the production of connective tissues like collagen and elastin to add strength and improve firmness.

It’s all genuinely amazing, but unfortunately the natural production of growth factors slows down with age causing a breakdown of this important communication. The result is fine lines, wrinkles, and the thinning and sagging of the skin.
