Growth factor concentrate (GFC) therapy, for hair is a treatment that involves using the patient's own blood to stimulate hair growth and improve hair quality. The concentrated growth factors are typically derived from the patient's own blood through the process of Anticoagulation, Sedimentation & Centrifuge. Plasma contains concentrated growth factors, platelets, and other bioactive proteins that are believed to promote tissue regeneration and healing.
In the context of hair restoration, growth factor concentrate therapy aims to stimulate the hair follicles, promote hair growth, and improve the overall volume of the hair.
During the treatment, around 20ml blood is drawn from the patient, centrifuged to separate the growth factors, and is then injected into the scalp in areas experiencing hair loss or thinning. The growth factors are believed to help promote blood circulation, increase cell proliferation, and prolong the growth phase of hair follicles.
GFC therapy for hair is a relatively safe procedure since it uses the patient's own blood, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions or infections. However, its effectiveness is still a subject of ongoing research, and individual results can vary. Multiple treatment sessions are typically recommended, and maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain the results.
If you're considering growth factor concentrate(GFC) therapy for hair growth, it's advisable to consult with a qualified Trichologist or Dermatologist who can provide you with personalized advice and determine if this treatment is suitable for you.
