Natural Growth Factor Injections contain special cells called platelets that can theoretically cause the growth of hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle.
These special platelet cells accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and rejuvenation and respond to injury and the formation of new cellular growth. For example, natural Growth Factor Injections in hair restoration stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
The beauty of natural growth factors is that they come from your body and give you little risk of allergies. First, you will have blood drawn from your arm, and the blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the platelets from the blood cells. Once the platelets are separated, they inject into the hair follicles, stimulating hair regrowth.
The treatment is usually a series of 3-4 treatments every 4-6 weeks to allow hair to regrow. The best results can be achieved over 4-9 months. You will need to stay hydrated during, before, and after treatment.
How well you respond to this treatment may depend on your age and scalp conditions. You may experience soreness, and bruising will resolve in 3 to 5 days.
