Growth Factor Treatment

It is a treatment for hair loss, facial rejuvenation and acne scars that uses the patient’s own blood.This treatment involves the injection of growth factors in the spots where thinning is observed or scars are visible.

What is Scarring?

Scarring is a natural process that occurs as wounds heal. If a lesion is more than 5 mm deep or takes longer than 3-4 weeks to repair, the healing process will leave a scar.

How does Growth Factor act against hair loss?

Growth factors are proteins that exist in our bodies. They have the ability to stimulate the production of various types of cells involved in healing processes. They can enhance the repair of damaged tissues by reactivating cells. With hair loss treatment, growth factors are multiplied, activating more cells. It restores the function of hair follicles in the area where the injection is done, resulting in the growth of new hair from re-stimulated, formerly inactive follicles.
