Stem Cells and Growth Factors

24/03/2016 at 09:50:08 | by Georgina Ireland
Stem cells and growth factors have now been used in skincare for a number of years. Clinical evidence shows that the use of stem cells and growth factors applied can repair damged skin by stimulating the cells to build new collagen and elastin; target pigmentation; protect the skin against environmental aggressors, such as UV damage; and replenish and regenerate dying cells and DNA damage. Stem cells can self renew and divide to form new stem cells or transform into different cells with a specialised function, such as skin cells. Stem cells play a key role in tissue development, regeneration, and cellular renewal so it is no surprise that scientists have wanted to harness their power to combat ageing.
