This month we are the featured ambassador for the company Omni Bioceutical Innovations of Phoenix, Arizona. Check out Omnibioinnovations.com to see our practice featured there. Omni has been our vendor and supplier for the last decade for our human growth factors that we use with our signature microneedling procedures. Many people ask about growth factors, often confusing them with human growth hormones which are something completely different.
Growth factors are specialized proteins within the skin cell that function as messengers. The messages they carry are needed to help the skin cell repair itself. I like to think of a growth factor as a great “normalizer” of the skin cell, communicating to the cell that another behavior is needed to create homeostasis. Our own growth factors often get depleted and less functional by our thirties resulting in our first signs of aging in our skin. This is not the beginning of aging…it is when we first start to notice the results of years of environmental damage and other exposure that has been accumulating. Obviously, every person is different here…our lifestyles, where we spent our childhoods, whether we wore sunscreen, our genetics etc. all play a part but eventually, we all visibly age.
Growth factors are a best friend to the aging process. We need them to function in order to combat the visible signs of aging skin. Our patented growth factor products we use from Omnibioinnovations are hand selected for this purpose from neonatal skin cells in order to achieve the highest function for the best results. No other company or product can do this.
Not all growth factors are created equal. Many have extra, toxic and unnecessary ingredients that can be irritating to the skin. Others are not even from human sources, which weakens their function for a human skin cell. With our serums, we have the highest concentration of the best, patented, hand selected growth factors that you can find all from another actual skin cell. I have been researching other products for a decade and there is not anything close to the quality, concentration and effectiveness of the Omni product line.
