1.What is EGF?
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) was first discovered by American scientist Dr. Cohen. In 1986, Dr. Cohen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology for his outstanding contribution to the study of EGF.
EGF has a wide range of biological applications, it promotes a variety of epidermal tissue growth which has been used in medicine scald, ulcer, and various types of trauma.
2. What is the effect of EGF in the field of aesthetic medicine?
(1) Rejuvenation effect
EGF can stimulate the ectodermal and endodermal origins of a variety of cells, such as endothelial cells, epidermis, dermal cells, so it can proliferate to increase metabolism to achieve the effect of rejuvenation.
(2)Moisturizing the skin
EGF can promote DNA, RNA and functional protein biosynthesis. Also, it promotes the synthesis of extracellular macromolecules, enhance skin moisture, therefore increasing skin elasticity and moisturizing the skin.
(3)Treatment of dry skin
EGF can stimulate extracellular hyaluronic acid, increase the hydrophilicity of the skin, promote epidermal cell proliferation. It can be very effective in the prevention and treatment of dry skin, keep the skin moist.
(4)Inhibit dark spots
EGF on the epidermal cells have a strong promoting role. The epidermal cells become younger after use. The proportion of newborn cells increased, and the content of melanin and pigmented skins reduced. Therefore, the dark spots gradually fade away. If FGF is used to effectively repair and stop the recurrence of pigmentation in the treatment and recovery of laser speckle, you will have perfect skin without foundation.
(5)Repair the skin
EGF can activate and secrete bioactive protein, make the rapid regular growth of epidermal cells, so cosmetic, cosmetic surgery, other skin wounds, other wound healing and repair have a significant effect. It can reduce and make scars disappeared.
EGF can increase the intracellular nutrition and promote the secretion of dermal cell synthesis to the collagen fibers, glycoproteins and other functional molecules. The senescent cells become keratosis quickly, fall off, break down, and deform collagen fibers and elastic fibers are repaired. The skin elasticity increases and eliminate wrinkles.
(7)Treatment of damaged skin
The main function of EGF is to promote the growth of epidermal cells, differentiation, and accelerate the generation of new cells. For peeling failure, long-term skin swelling, viral scar (commonly known as shingles), and other skin wounds, EGF can improve the regeneration of skin tissue. Experiments have been proven that the use of EGF, the wound healing rate can be increased 3-4 times.
(8)White and rosy
EGF can promote the metabolism of skin vascular wall cells, increase the density of capillaries, improve skin microcirculation. It makes the blood flow smoothly, so that making the skin become rosy and white.
