Growth Factor Therapy is a relatively technological advanced technique for hair regrowth which involves separating the growth factors from plant based enzymes and injecting them into the scalp to facilitate hair growth.
Extending the vigor of human epidermal stem cells is now the cutting edge of bio technical research. Current in vitro experimentation demonstrates that active phyto (plant derived) compounds can stimulate the growth of human mesenchymal cells and help to protect them from free radical attack.
The plants keep growing or adapting to the changes in one form or the other. Unlike humans, their growth does not get easily stunted and hence the growth factors present in them retain their potency for long.
These suitable growth factors when injected into the human scalp provide the requisite nutrients which help in hair regrowth. First the scalp is cleansed and then growth factors solution applied over it. Then a device called dermaroller is rolled over the scalp to enhance the penetration of the growth factors solution. The whole treatment takes about 15-20 mins.
The Growth Factor promote new hair growth within 3 to 4 weeks of treatment*. The hair density increases by 30 to 40% by six to eight sessions of treatment*. On an average six sessions are required once in a week to 10 days along with which supplements are given*.
Anyone who has started experiencing hair fall not more than 5 years and has a bald patch no more than 3 inches is an ideal candidate for Growth Factor Therapy.
In the first consultation, the doctor will do a thorough examination of the scalp and hair.
After this the medical treatment is started which includes both the pre and post care in addition to the Growth Factor injection.
- The scalp is thoroughly cleaned and growth factors are applied
- Demarollers are rolled over the scalp to facilitate deeper penetration
- The entire treatment lasts for about 20 minutes. Post care instructions are given accordingly as per the person in question.
