G-Human Grow Factors
Growth factors are very active in the human body, or at least they are while we are younger. They are the body’s wound-healing mechanism. As we approach our late twenties, our growth factors gradually start to decline. The goal of using growth factors is to trick your skin into thinking it is younger, making it create more collagen than the body can naturally destroy. Using Human Growth Factors will smooth out skin texture and decreases fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinoids minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s thickness and elasticity, slow the breakdown of collagen (which helps keep skin firm), and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. Retinoids inhibit the breakdown of collagen and thicken the deeper layer of skin where wrinkles get their start.

As we get older, it is normal for our skin to gradually lose elasticity and thin out. However, there are a variety of factors that can cause the skin to start aging at an accelerated rate. A big part of this “premature skin aging” is the result of free radical activity in the body. Free radicals are molecules that are produced by environmental exposures like tobacco, smoke and radiation. This includes radiation from the sun and other sources of UV rays, such as tanning beds. Free radicals are also produced when your body breaks down food. Antioxidants are naturally occurring substances that may provide protection against the effects of damaging free radicals of the cells in your body, including your skin.

Sunscreens are products that combine several ingredients that help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching the skin. There are two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB. They damage the skin and increase your risk of skin cancer.
Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB from damaging the skin. Here’s how it works: if it takes 20 minutes for your unprotected skin to start turning red, using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening 15 times longer – about five hours. Most sunscreens with an SPF of 30 or higher do an excellent job of protecting against UVB.
S-Special Eye Cream and Serums
The skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and shows age and fatigue . Squinting and constant movement of the eyes also hasten the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Eye creams can address these issues. Specialized serums for different skin problems can help with over all skin health.
