AQ Skin Solutions GF Technology was originally discovered through wound healing and cell regeneration therapy in 3rd degree burn victims. Consistent medical research has proven that when formulated correctly, patented GF-technology holds the potential to reverse the cell aging process, fade scars, and boost the body’s natural repair process regarding skin, hair follicles and vaginal walls. AQ’s breakthrough research revealed how to effectively maximize the retention of GFs for greatest penetration and effectiveness.
Consequences of environmental exposure in addition to the normal processes of aging result in excessive free radical damage and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. This type of damage eventually impairs growth factor function, reducing the body’s ability to repair oxidative damage and prompting the need for supplementation.
Supplementing the diminished production of growth factors with AQ’s patented Human Growth Factor Technology has clinically proven to unleash the potential of reversing the cell aging process and boost the body’s natural repair process. AQ Skin Solutions GFs are formulated with specificity and maintained stability.
Using the highest quality of GF media worldwide, AQ revolutionized the approach to skin rejuvenation by enhancing the body’s ability to defend itself after surgery, burns, wounds, and UV exposure. This invention allowed the generation of specific growth factors to be more effective with tissue regeneration and cellular repair and complement energy-based devices with reduced side effects and downtime.
What are Growth Factors?
AQ’s GF technology refers to an advanced, innovative method of producing human growth factors and employing them in topical cosmeceuticals. Growth factors (GFs) are a group of specialized, fragile proteins that act as chemical messengers between many cell types. Critical for the activation of cellular functions, GFs are found naturally in the human body, specifically fibroblast cells. Selective growth factors play a role in increasing cell production, cell division, blood vessel production, and collagen and elastin production.
Combining authentic research with advanced clinical experience, AQ employs a proprietary blend of the appropriate combination and concentration of applicable GFs in Growth Factor Induced Therapy (GFIT).
Medical research has found that GF can speed and improve healing when applied to areas of the human body damaged in surgery, burns, wounds, or accidents. The mechanism behind the benefits is facilitation of changes at the cellular level to revert damaged cells to a younger state, healing the damaged skin in the process. GF-technology is now being shown to improve the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin and to help restore normal hair growth. Cosmetic patents of early GF-technology were first issued in 1994.
In 2001, two independent double-blind studies testing topical serums containing either natural or bio-engineered GF were presented to the Society of Investigative Dermatology. The results were surprising—when applied to skin twice a day for four–six weeks, both types of serums produced better results than Botox! Each study showed significant increases in production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, fibroblasts, and epidermal thickness.
AQ Active Serum – Daily Topical System
Enhance your body’s ability to defend itself – without a prescription.
- Helps decrease wrinkles and fine lines
- Aims to build collagen naturally
- Improves the appearance of skin texture and pigmentation
- Can fade stubborn sun damage, age spots, and scars
Perceived skin aging, such as wrinkles, roughness, pigmentation, and loss of elasticity, is largely due to damage caused by environmental factors. In fact, researchers have found that almost 90% of skin aging is due to exposure to UV light from the sun. This process is known as photoaging. Air pollution, smoking, and irritable toxins are among other factors contributing to perched aging. Repeated exposure to these factors result in skin that is unable to maintain its structure and health due to the breakdown of collagen and decreased production of growth factors.

- Aims to relieve vaginal dryness and help soothe irritation
- May improve elasticity and circulation
- Can tighten vaginal walls and help with lubrication
- Can enhance female sexual arousal and intercourse
Despite the high number of women experiencing symptoms related to vaginal dryness, it is still a silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends, and even doctors. Vaginal dryness is a common symptom experienced during the premenopausal and postmenopausal years. Although inadequate vaginal lubrication can occur at any age, vaginal dryness is a hallmark sign of vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) – the thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall due to a decline in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, women may also experience itching and stinging around the vaginal opening, and in the lower third of the vagina.
AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System (VRS) is a hormone-free system that aims to increase vaginal cell renewal and rejuvenation. Designed to combat vaginal dryness and firm the vaginal walls, AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System (VRS) uses patented growth factor technology to help increase lubrication, improve elasticity, and potentially enhance arousal.
