NATURAL GROWTH FACTORS WITH/WITHOUT MICRONEEDLING
THE SCIENCE BEHIND GROWTH FACTORS
Natural Growth Factors are simply our bodies’ own “liquid gold.” The growth factors are derived from our whole blood, consisting of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, all suspended in a liquid base called plasma. Plasma is rich in proteins, immunoglobulins (antibodies made by the immune system to fight bacteria), electrolytes, coagulants (mostly fibrinogen), and numerous growth factors. Using a process called centrifugation, we are able to separate whole blood and plasma.
These cells carry and recruit growth factors. These factors promote local blood vessel growth, decrease inflammation, and recruit local stem cells and fibroblasts to sites of damage or injury. Once injected into the tissues, it sends signals to the area to begin the healing process. The activated growth factors signal additional growth factors and stem cells to the area.
NATURAL GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS WITH MICRONEEDLING
Using Natural Growth Factors is the most natural way to rejuvenate the skin. Using plasma from your very own blood, this procedure restores youth and a healthy glow to the skin by stimulating new cell growth while also healing damaged tissue.
- Quick and convenient treatments
- Minimally invasive with minimal discomfort
- 100% natural (no chemicals)
- FDA-approved for safety and efficacy
- Ideal for all skin types
- Can be done any time of year
- Very little downtime
- Skin that is healthier, more radiant, and more youthful
EXOSOMES WITH MICRONEEDLING
Microneedling with exosome therapy uses the power of your cells’ messaging centers—your exosomes—to rejuvenate the skin in a manner that is more specific and direct in treating concerns like uneven skin tone, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, large pores, dullness, and more.
During your treatment, exosomes are extracted and added to a special growth-activating serum, which is injected into deeper skin layers using a special microneedling device. Skin becomes smoother, healthier, and a lot more radiant over time.
As with standard microneedling, the procedure takes about 45-60 minutes and produces smoother, dewy skin that appears healthier and feels firmer.
NATURAL GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS FOR HAIR RESTORATION
Natural Growth Factors are created through concentrating platelets found in whole blood. It can aid in tissue regeneration and bone regeneration and can even promote hair regrowth! When it comes to hair restoration, natural growth factors have also been proven to promote hair growth by stimulating inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase called the Anagen phase. Numerous growth factors can be found in our plasma, however the ones most important for hair growth include: Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor (CSGF), Transforming Growth Factor (TGF), Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) and other key proteins and cells are believed to stimulate resting hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
People experience hair loss for a variety of reasons, some of which include hormone imbalances such as estrogen/testosterone or thyroid irregularities, stress (physical/physiological/mental) or trauma (pulling the hair and chemical or mechanical damage). However, the most common cause is genetics, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA); affecting up to 50% of men and 40% of women by the age of 50.
Similar to all other growth factor procedures, blood is drawn, and the plasma is separated from the whole blood. The growth factor serum is then injected into the scalp, where the hair thinning is most obvious. For optimal results, a series of 3-4 treatments are recommended, with continued maintenance twice a year thereafter. Additional medications may also be recommended to treat the root cause of hair thinning and loss.
