What Are “Human Growth Factors”?

Human growth factors (HGF) aid in wound healing. In addition to this crucial role, HGF have proven to be extremely beneficial for skin rejuvenation. Over time and with age the production and level of natural growth factors and collagen decrease. This leaves the skin vulnerable and unable to quickly repair itself, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Growth factors participate in skin rejuvenation at many different levels. SkinMedica manufactures the only products containing a professional concentration of HGF- NouriCel(TM). NouriCel contains a physiologic blend of many natural human growth factors and other compounds produced by healthy new skin. Together, these compounds help reduce the signs of aging by repairing sun damage, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping to increase skin elasticity and texture. Collagen breakdown diminishes, resulting in an anti-aging phenomenon. A concentrated, professional-strength formulation of NouriCel, called NouriCel-MD, is available exclusively in SkinMedica’s TNS Recovery Complex and TNS Essential Serum.
