Cytokine Growth Factor TreatmentAuthor: Dr. Gordon Sasaki
Cytokines which are commonly referred to as growth factors are naturally-occurring molecules that boost communication between cells. As you age, your body’s natural production and preservation of growth factors decreases significantly. This results in the loss of your natural collagen, collagen-preserving chemicals, and natural anti-oxidants. While many skin care regimens are designed to boost collagen and anti-oxidant levels, growth factors are designed to increase the production of collagen, collagen-preserving chemicals and anti-oxidants within your skin naturally. It has been shown that when cytokines are applied topically to the skin they may help to promote new skin cell growth and multiplication while increasing blood vessel growth. As new cells are able to develop at a faster rate it has been noted that cytokines can dramatically help lessen fine lines and wrinkles and promote faster wound healing after laser and microneedling treatments.
