In a world full of toxins and wrinkle fillers, autologous growth factor treatment offers a safe and natural solution to many skin problems such as aging, wrinkles, sagging, open pores, pigmentation, stretch marks, and even hair loss. Sounds too good to be true? Made famous by the Kardashians as the Vampire facial, this remains one of the most sought after treatments by celebrities around the world. Let us get down to know how it works and if this treatment is for you or not.
How is growth factor treatment useful??
Human blood contains plenty of growth factors which initiate healing after an injury. When blood is centrifuged, it separates into various components and helps in extracting growth factors. This extracted component is then injected into the skin to cause healing.
Since it is derived from one’s own blood, and no additives are added during its preparation, it is a very safe treatment. Studies have shown that it shows significant improvement in hair loss (both in men and women), non-healing ulcers, skin pigmentation, dark circles, acne scars, and non-surgical facelifts.
