Growth factors are a type of protein which play a vital role in supporting the repair of damaged skin, maintaining firmness and elasticity to the skin while helping to maintain skin’s protective functions.
Aging and sun-damaged skin require growth factors to maintain itself.
In 1962, American biochemist Dr.Stanley Cohen discovered the epidermal growth factor (EGF) and the isolation of nerve growth factor, earning him the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1986. In June 2001, ulcer therapeutic agent – FGF started to be sold in Japan. Since then, various other growth factors have been discovered.
In Facia Ginza salons, we select growth factors because they promote the cell reborn cycle (turn over) which tends to weaken when we age. The ingredients play a necessary role to turn on the switch of cell-rejuvenation.
Daily use of skin care products containing growth factors are known to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture.
• Wove Style GF Moisture Lotion
• Wove Style GF Deep Moisture
Cells in aging skin make less growth factors than cells in youthful skin. One approach to support the levels of skin rejuvenation is to have regular anti-aging treatment “for cells” with GFs.
• Moisturising Care with GF Electroporation
Controlled clinical studies have shown that the application of skin cares containing growth factors:
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as a result of new collagen synthesis
• Improves the appearance of age spots and evens out pigmentation
• Reduces skin roughness
• Improves skin texture and elasticity
• Improves skin smoothness and tightness.
