How Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) Serum Can Rejuvenate Your Skin
Why is it that skin gets wrinkled and splotchy as it ages? The short answer is that it is damaged by age and exposure to the sun, as well as other harmful elements. Over the years, this damage adds up, until the skin is unable to repair itself like it previously could. However, it's a little more complicated than that. In fact, even as you age, your skin retains the ability to repair and regenerate itself. The problem is that certain signaling proteins which trigger that repair process are diminished over time. These proteins - called Epidermal Growth Factor, or EGF -–as we age aren't replenished like they're supposed to be. Without EGF, your skin doesn't realize it needs to heal itself. So, it doesn't. This is the basis of the science behind Bellus Skin Rejuvenation Serum. Our EGF serum is designed to replenish the EGF beneath your skin, allowing your skin to once again begin healing itself and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
The Benefits of EGF Serum and the Bellus Skin ProcessIn fact, Epidermal Growth Factor goes beyond merely signaling that it's time for your skin to start repairing itself. It actually has several direct benefits for the skin. EGF will:
- Improve skin tone
- Soften skin
- Reduce appearance of scars, and
- Form new epidermis (the outer skin layer).
- Reduce wrinkles
- Improve skin moisture, and
- Produce collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are all the 'raw materials' of your skin.
