Human Growth Hormone (HGH) combined with Microneedling

Recommended Posts

Hi,

New here but experienced in treating scars. I did extensive microneedling about 8 years ago with great results. I haven't really had to think about my skin since as the results were so good. I just hit 31 recently and am becoming interested again in scar treatments and maintaining the quality of the skin. I was surprised to see that nothing has really changed in 8 years. It seems to be the same old treatments being talked about. In any other industry a decade is a lifetime and many advancements are made. 

Anyway, I am thinking of doing a few more microneedling treatments (using a dermastamp) and was looking for something to add to my treatment protocol and came across some studies on Human Growth Hormone. It seems to have a significant effect on wound healing which is basically what scar treatments are all about - a controlled wound to the skin. This study on severe burn patents is interesting -

If you combined this with treatments such as microneedling or even laser treatments, it should help with both the recovery and the results. Of course this is just a hypothesis but I wish there was more innovation in this field. It would be interesting to see a double blind trial specifically for scar treatments to see if a difference is made. There is certainly a difference for burn patients so it would make sense that lesser wounds would benefit also. Just some thoughts really. I am having blood tests soon to check my HGH levels as my energy levels have been extremely low lately. Part of me is hoping that i'm somewhat deficient so I can test my hypothesis.
