For you Hydra fans, Suite 103 Aesthetics is excited to introduce the newly released treatment serum that can be added to the HydraFacial MD treatment. This Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) serum utilizes human derived growth factors that are rigorously tested for all known pathogens and do not contain any recombinant (bacteria derived) or bovine (animal derived) materials.
So, what are growth factors and what can they do for our skin??
A growth factor is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that plays a key role in maintaining healthy skin structure and function. They are proteins that regulate cellular growth, proliferation and differentiation under highly controlled conditions. Growth factors are secreted by all cell types that make up the epidermis and dermis layers of our skin.
As we age, are skin cell growth and division decreases. Also, the collagen content of the skin decreases at a rate of approximately 1% per year. As the collagen content decreases, it results in a 20% thinning of the dermis in the elderly.
Growth factors stimulate the biochemical pathways to promote tissue repair and regeneration and the formation of elastic fibers and collagen which makes our skin soft and supple.
Clinical studies with growth factors have shown a reduction in skin roughness, improved skin texture and elasticity, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improved skin roughness and tightness.
