When it comes to skincare, it can be difficult to know which products work best for you. Whether you are searching for a brightening serum or an anti-aging moisturizer, there is one ingredient that could do both and more: growth factors.
Growth factors have been used for decades in research, but are making a bigger breakthrough in the skincare field. Kim Chang, a licensed medical aesthetician with Baylor College of Medicine, explains why incorporating growth factors into your daily routine can help support your skincare needs.
“Research has been substantial on growth factors when it comes to reducing lines and wrinkles,” Chang said. “They also work by adding hydration and decreasing tactile roughness in the skin.”
