Growth factors are aptly named proteins because they help skin grow — or more precisely, they increase cellular regeneration. Topical growth factors can help you look younger and repair damage in your skin.
What exactly are growth factors? They’re proteins naturally found in the body that communicate with your cells to produce more elastin and collagen. Growth factors renew skin cells and help to heal skin from environmental damage like the sun and pollution. They also help with recovery from skincare procedures like laser treatments and chemical peels.
When you’re choosing skincare for healthier skin from the inside-out, you may want to use products with topical growth factors. Here’s how growth factors in skincare work to reveal a more vibrant visage.

Growth Factors and Skincare
Epidermal growth factors were first discovered in the 1980s by Dr. Stanley Cohen and Dr. Rita Levi-Mantalcini, who received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery. Their research has had a major impact on our understanding of human growth and cellular reproduction and how it can be applied to skincare.
As we age, our skin cells produce fewer growth factors. That can result in less youthful-looking skin. Skincare products with growth factors in them can supplement growth factor loss and support skin firmness and elasticity.
Growth factors have steadily gained traction in the skincare industry as they can help you protect your skin from sun damage and aging.
With growth factors, you can repair skin while also protecting against further damage. Let’s learn more about why growth factors are such a powerful ingredient for your skin.
Growth Factors Work
Growth factors are your body’s natural response to heal damaged skin and reduce inflammation. Think of them as part of the building blocks that promote cellular growth.
Since they’re naturally found in the body, topical growth factors can be used in skincare regimens for all types of skin, including sensitive skin and skin with acne. Their use has been clinically proven to enhance skin tone, texture and luminosity.
Growth factors are beneficial to use if you want to improve your skin’s appearance now, delay cosmetic procedures or extend the benefits you get from procedures. In a 12-week clinical study, Biopelle Tensage Growth Factor was clinically proven to help:
- Enhance skin tone
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reveal more youthful-looking skin and a healthy glow
- Significantly improve the appearance of crow’s feet
Additionally, patients saw a:
- 78% reduction in sallow appearance of skin
- 46% reduction in deep wrinkles
- 40% reduction in irregular pigmentation
As a testament to the healing power of growth factors, the Tensage Intensive Serum 40 also dramatically reduced healing time after a 25% TCA Peel on the face.
The Tensage Intensive Serum 40 can help shorten healing time and optimize skincare procedural outcomes.
