Hi

I´m very excited today, have just bought my first dermaroller, one 0.5mm to the face and hands and one 1.5 to the body:) I also bought the vit c powder, some needles and the copper mask and vit a and d creme. I can´t wait to get started:-)

But my question is about secretagoques, a growth hormone creme or what is it? I have read about it on Dr. Lam´s homepage, what do you think about it, and were can I buy it?

Certain secretagogues could stimulate the production of growth hormone, which may benefit the skin.

I'd have to read how much the currently available "natural secretagogues" actually work, and in how far this will benefit skin, if at all.

I doubt that much, if any research has yet been done into secretagogues and skin health, but there is promising research:
