About ReLuma

 
WHAT ARE GROWTH FACTORS?
 

Growth factors are very specific peptides that emit biological signals involved in the regulation of cell growth and function.1,3 Their function is to trigger cells to divide and grow, and to produce matrix proteins like collagen.1

In the skin, local skin cells produce and maintain most of its growth factor concentration levels. The TGF-b family (transforming growth factor-beta) is considered to be the most important growth factor group in skin because the majority of skin cells recognize their signals.2 TGF-b is a potent stimulator of collagen production, promotes the synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins, and inhibits matrix degradation (thinning of your skin).1,2,3

Other essential skin growth factors include PDGF (Platelet-derived growth factor) and GM-CSF (Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor), which can also stimulate extracellular matrix production, reduce inflammation, and promote the formation of new blood vessels.1,3
