Adopted by some of the UK’s top skin and aesthetic clinics, GF5 Growth Factor Serum has begun to change the industry’s beliefs in what a single serum can achieve, both in combination with aesthetic treatments and when used alone.
Featuring a high concentration of 5 unique Growth Factors that are bio-identical to the life-giving Growth Factors found in the human placenta. When these Growth Factors are applied directly to the skin, they help to reverse the ageing process and repair existing damage by triggering processes essential for repair. Other ingredients such as Vitamin B9 support and improve Growth Factor efficacy. Our neuropeptides help to minimise and prevent lines and wrinkles.

Growth Factors are key to our body’s ability to repair and replace damaged cells. By our late teens, our natural growth factor production begins to decline significantly. By our late 20s-30s, this is negligible. Thus, damaged skin cells are far less likely to be repaired leading to the first signs of ageing. The entire architecture of the skin changes and growth factors have the ability to effect a reversal of these changes.
One growth factor cannot do it all, however. GF5 incorporates an enviable blend of 5 key factors that collectively stimulate a holistic regenerative process in the skin. Blood vessel supply improves, skin thickness increases, collagen and other key structural proteins improve in quality and quantity, and much more. GF5 is a true all-rounder and may be used by any skin type for a whole host of concerns from scarring and skin trauma (not on open skin) to skin laxity and dullness.
Lecithin and sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) give GF5 its amazing hydrating ability. Lecithin is rich in fatty acids and reduces TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss). One study demonstrated an 84% increase in tissue hydration immediately after application.
Neuropeptides inhibit messages from nerves to muscles to reduce overactivity and slow down the formation of expression lines.
Acetyl glutamine (amino acid) and Vitamin B9 work in synergy with the growth factors, further enhancing efficacy.
Apply every morning and evening to cleansed, dry skin. Apply to the face and neck in an upward motion. If being used for pre- or post-procedure care, please seek advice of your skin practitioner.

Malgorzata, Lancashire – 5/5
This serum is absolutely amazing – I love everything about it. It has very nice packaging and a beautiful texture and is so easy to use. It will last a very long time just simply because you only need a little bit so definitely worth the money. My skin looks healthier and younger and it has a really healthy glow – this is what I love about it. Just amazing and so effective.
Jocelyn, Cornwall – 5/5
This is a dream to use! It applies easily without leaving my skin greasy. My skin looks so much brighter and smoother and my scars – some from acne and one from a dog bite – have reduced quite visibly over the last four weeks of using it. I will carry on using this and I can’t wait to see the results in the long-term. A very lovely product to use and my skin loves it.
Zaneta, Hampshire – 5/5
This serum is something else and really exceeded my expectations. It’s an unscented product, with great texture. One pump gives enough to cover the full-face. It’s definitely improved the texture of my skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are much less visible and my skin is much more elastic as well. My acne scarring is fading, so I absolutely love using this serum – I used it after a Dermapen treatment and noticed my skin was healing much quicker. Regardless of the price, this serum actually works on my skin so there is no need to find cheaper versions!
Emma, London – 5/5
This is scent free, which I love! It’s a clear gel-like texture which instantly sinks into your skin, so no waiting around to put your makeup on. After a few days of use, the breakout I had on my nose started to clear – it had been hanging around for a few weeks so I was very happy! After four weeks, my skin felt more hydrated and plump and the texture looked much smoother. I also had a session of radiofrequency microneedling and wow – the healing rate was much improved as opposed to my first session without!

Also known as Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), a growth factor that stimulates cell proliferation and wound healing.
Also called Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor. Stimulates fibroblast cell growth and proliferation which stimulates the synthesis of collagen. Reduces loss of water in the skin, reduces signs of ageing, improves skin hydration and accelerates skin healing response.
Also known as Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor. Stimulates the formation of blood vessels, supplying collagen-making cells with nutrients. Accelerates wound healing, improving the appearance of scars, wounds, burns and stretch marks.
Also known as Acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor. Stimulates skin regeneration, wound healing, and collagen and elastin synthesis. Improves skin elasticity so the skin will feel and look smoother and firmer.
