Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) in skin care activates the body's natural healing power to the degree that many call this remarkable peptide a natural “beauty factor”. Since the discovery of EGF and its role in cell growth, researchers have been enthusiastic about it as an ingredient in top anti-aging and skin rejuvenation formulations. Scientific studies provide evidence that EGF in harmony with cytokines and other growth factors help halt the aging process.
DECREASED EPIDERMAL CELL TURNOVER AND REDUCED COLLAGEN PRODUCTION MAKE SKIN LOOK OLDER
To better understand the effects of EGF in skin rejuvenation, let’s look to the normal aging process of skin. When you’re young, skin cells proliferate faster. Rapidly replacing cells are what give the skin its youthful radiance. Also, collagen and elastin fibers are well maintained in youth. These structural elements display as elasticity, resilience and plumpness.
With age, the rate of cell proliferation decreases. This results in skin thinning. Collagen production also drops, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Damaged elastin fibers make skin sag.
HOW DOES EGF INDUCE SKIN REJUVENATION?
Continuous EGF application diminishes wrinkles and age lines
EGF can be administered topically or by infusion. EGF based serums work best if applied to the skin after cleansing and toning, because this leads to maximum absorption. You’re probably asking yourself, “How can topically applied EGF induce skin rejuvenation?" The primary action of EGF is to promote cell growth by re-energizing a fading cellular mechanisms and by stimulating the cellular regeneration process. Once applied, EGF increases proliferation of epidermal cells and induces collagen production in the dermal layer. This diminishes wrinkles and age lines. Gradually, skin returns to smoothness, vibrancy and youthful allure.
ARE THERE OTHER USES OF EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR IN SKIN CARE?
EGF based formulations can accelerate the wound healing process
EGF based formulations can be used as a helpful attendant to cosmetic dermatology and surgical procedures. It has been demonstrated that EGF instantly soothes irritated skin and can also accelerate wound healing. EGF lotions or creams can be effective when used after cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, laser skin treatments or even plastic surgery.
