Microneedling with Human Growth Factors builds on the cell and collagen generating dynamics of traditional microneedling, providing advanced skin rejuvenation and restoration through the introduction of active peptides, growth factors, and proteins into the skin.
Growth factors are specialized, naturally-occuring proteins that stimulate cellular division, increasing the rate at which cells grow and encouraging new blood vessel formation. Found naturally in the body’s cells, they help to stimulate the skin’s own renewal mechanisms, promoting the elimination of toxins and naturally balancing the skin.
Skincredible uses the patented AQ Recovery Serum from AQ Skin Solutions® – a pharmaceutical grade serum containing the highest concentration of natural Human Growth Factors (TGF-Beta, GM-CSF, & PDGF), cytokines and interleukins available to medical providers.
These growth factors – rich with the extensive signaling pathways found between the dermal and epidermal layers of skin – are naturally derived from the body’s cells. They include vital fibroblasts – the cells responsible for the synthesis of the ECM (the “extracellular matrix”) and collagen.
During treatment, serum is topically introduced into the skin via the microscopic channels created by the microneedling device. When introduced at the beginning of the restorative process triggered by the microneedling device, the human growth factors stimulate fibroblast growth, facilitating cell replication, collagen synthesis, and tissue repair.
Skin Based Growth Factors and Cytokines have been clinically shown to:
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
- Fade and reduce age spots
- Reduce the appearance of “crow’s feet”
- Repair sun-related damage
- Lighten dark circles under eyes
- Firm, tighten and lift the skin
- Reduce the appearance of “neck rings”
- Reduce mild to moderate acne
- Reduce symptoms of rosacea
- Reduce the appearance of scarring
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
Pre and Post treatment care and recovery from a Microneedling with Growth Factors treatment is similar to traditional microneedling. Patients may see their healing period shortened and experience less redness and irritation due to the use of Human Growth Factors during the treatment.
While some patients see improvement in a single treatment, most patients require a series of treatments to achieve the desired result. Your Skincredible provider will work with you to develop a treatment plan for your particular skin type, concerns and goals.
