Epidermal Growth Factors

Houston Epidermal Growth FactorsSkin is our largest organ and operates as a barrier that provides physical resistance to outward stress of the elements like UV radiation, pollution, and trauma. Everyday we constantly abuse our skin, most of the time unintentionally and unknowingly.

Most of us fail to realize that constant unprotected exposure to the sun, alcohol, smoking, lack of sleep, stress and even prescription drugs run our skin through a wringer, causing cell damage, which in turn causes brown spots, fine lines, acne, and large pores to appear as well as thinning of the skin. When Retin A became known about 20 years ago, it was a remarkable find that helped with all these issues by creating new epidermal growth factors (EGF). However, the side effect that was not so appealing to most patients was that it temporarily caused mild peeling, redness, and sensitivity. Many patients were not willing or able to look like they had a peel and gave up.

Now with new technology from NeoCutis, a Swiss Medical skin care company, human fetal epidermal growth factors can be introduced into the skin without irritation, sensitivity, and/or peeling. EGF’s are small protein molecules made up of about 53 amino acids and send signals that stimulate the skin cells to grow. What does that mean to you? Basically your cell renewal speeds up and new healthy cells are able to start growing which brings back the skins thickness, luster and glow that you had when you were younger. Pore size improves, fine lines are reduced, and pigment is not as noticeable. NeoCutis offers a full line for all skin types. They even offer a specialized formula for the delicate eye area that has 30% more epidermal growth factors (also referred to as PSP) that hydrates the skin under and around the eyes, reduces puffiness and dark circles and refreshes the skin.

NeoCutis discovered these anti-aging properties while using human fetal skin to heal burn wounds without scarring. Years of research has led to the discovery that aging skin has its own specific needs that are comparable to the same needs of wounded skin. This proven and clinically tested research makes the treatment safe and effective for wound healing, skin rejuvenation, post procedure skin care and even care for sensitized skin of all skin tones.

Timeless beauty is achievable without irritation and sensitivity like what medical grade topicals in the past once caused. Human Epidermal Growth Factors are the skin care of the future and get you on your way to healthier younger looking skin.
