Among the latest buzz in beauty ingredients, Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) administered using a microneedling technique provides an eccentric, yet effective facial to aid in wound healing, revitalize texture and even out the skin tone.

Revered for its luminous effect on the skin, however, it is dubbed a rather unusual name—the “penis facial”. To better understand, EGF is a substance that is naturally occurring in human skin.

As reported, it can be obtained from the discarded foreskins of newborn babies in Korea. However, at Modern Aesthetica in Santa Monica, CA, foreskin is not a primary source of EGF. Rather, Dr. Daniel Moghadam notes that EGF is found in kidneys, urine, saliva, and even barley, as used by the brand Bioeffect.

Furthermore, given its ability to speed up cell turnover, EGF empowers skin to renew itself more frequently, providing enormous anti-aging benefits. At the same time, the exclusive microneedling technique allows for targeted anti-aging right where patients want it.

Using a small hand-held tool with hundreds of tiny needles that run over the surface of the face, tiny holes or “wounds” are created on the skin. This calls to attention the body’s natural healing mechanism, which includes the creation of new collagen.

The combined benefits of EGF and the microneedling technique boosts the body’s regenerative processes, providing a next-level age-defying solution.

The use of EGF and other growth factors in beauty products is not new. Yet, while serums and creams containing EGF can be applied to the surface of the face, molecules within the substance are rather large, making absorption into the skin difficult. Thus, microneedling effectively delivers the molecules into the skin.

For aging skin experiencing a decrease in cell activation, the duo of epidermal growth factors (EGF) and microneedling revive skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigmentation concerns.


Providing the ultimate in skin regeneration, EGF serum not only capitalizes on the body’s natural healing capabilities, it allows for personalized anti-aging results that suit an individual’s unique skin type and concerns. Simply put, EGF skin regeneration serum is a key ingredient in making skin better, from the inside out.

Specific benefits associated with EGF serum include:

  • Reduces visible signs of aging
  • Encourages skin to repair its own cells
  • Speeds up the process of skin healing
  • Repairs damaged and scarred skin
  • Stimulates skin cell turnover for a youthful complexion and glow
