Growth Factors – the “magic” at the core of SkinMedica products

Growth factors are a critical ingredient for maintaining firmness and elasticity of the skin. While many beauty products contain these growth factors, it is a combination of the quality and types of growth factors used that determine how beneficial they are in helping to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and improving skin tone and texture.

What are growth factors?

Growth factors are proteins created by the body that promote cell growth and tissue repair in the lining of the blood vessels, the heart, the lymph glands, and body cavities. They also stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for keeping the cells hydrated.

They are different from human growth hormone (HGH), which is a single protein produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates growth of the musculoskeletal tissue. While both growth factors and HGH are naturally produced by the body, production wanes the older we get.


The SkinMedica product line

The SkinMedica product line contains special formulations for virtually every concern. Its combination of growth factors, antioxidants, and other vital ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid have all been developed to provide you with highly effective—and clinically proven—skincare products to bring out the most beautiful you. With more than 40 products specially targeted to meet your needs, you are bound to create a regimen that works for you.

The SkinMedica line of products for home use

The categories of products for use at home include:

  • Cleanse
  • Correct
  • Moisturize and hydrate
  • Protect
  • Brighten
  • Targeted treatments for face and body

There is also a range of professional peels that delivered by Dr. Tirgari and his staff. Removing the top layer(s), the skin becomes rejuvenated and brighter, with diminished wrinkles and fine lines. It also stimulates the growth of new tissue, improving texture and improving elasticity.
