Growth Factor Treatment
All of these treatments combined can have a powerful effect on your overall appearance, targeting the most visible areas for a full rejuvenation.
Growth Factor Treatment has received so much attention that it may seem as if we’ve finally found the fountain of youth. Despite the hoopla, there’s little evidence to show that it works — or doesn’t work.
If you’re considering getting a vampire facelift, here’s what you should know.
What exactly is Growth Factor Treatment?
We all have platelets in our blood. Growth Factor Treatment is 3-step procedure that involves having your blood:
-Drawn from your arm
-Placed into a machine that separates the platelets from the rest of your blood
-Re-injected into you (only the part of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets).
Orthopedic surgeons use Growth Factor Treatment to help athletes recover more quickly after an injury.
In dermatology, Growth Factor Treatment is being tested as a possible treatment for hair loss. Growth Factor Treatment may also speed up wound healing. A few dermatologists are using Growth Factor Treatment to give patients younger-looking skin.
If you have Growth Factor Treatment to treat signs of aging on your skin, here’s what to expect:
Blood drawn: You would have a small amount of blood (about 2 to 4 tablespoons) drawn from your arm.
Blood taken to lab: The test tube containing your blood would be placed in a medical device called a centrifuge, which separates your blood into layers. One of these layers contains a high concentration of platelets.
Blood injected: Your dermatologist injects the blood that contains the high concentration of platelets into your face or scalp, using a syringe or microneedling (device that looks like a lint roller with tiny needles sticking out of it). To give you immediate results, your dermatologist may also inject a filler.
The entire procedure takes about 45 minutes to one hour.
While Growth Factor Treatment may sound like something straight out of a science-fiction novel, some patients are finding that Growth Factor Treatment can:
Plump up sagging skin
Get rid of deep creases
Improve one’s complexion
Diminish acne scars
Another perk: There’s little to no downtime.
Few studies conducted in people
All these benefits have created high demand for a procedure that has little evidence to back it up.
Is Growth Factor Treatment safe?
While dermatologists still have many unanswered questions, the procedure itself appears safe.
You may have a bit of pain, bruising, and swelling afterwards. These tend to go away within a few days.
The biggest risks comes from the way your blood is handled. It’s essential that the blood removed from your body be kept sterile. Otherwise, you could develop an infection.
For your safety, the facility should also follow the same process that transfusion centers use to make sure that your own blood is injected back into you. If you receive someone else’s blood by mistake, you could become very sick.
How long does it take to see results?
If you get results, the full effects appear within a few weeks to months.
How many Growth Factor Treatment injections do you need?
Researchers have found that most patients who get results have 3 or more treatments. That means, you’d have to go to your dermatologist’s office 3 or more times to have blood drawn, treated, and injected back into you.
To give their patients more immediate results, some dermatologists inject a filler along with Growth Factor Treatment. This allows a patient to see immediate results.
Who can have Growth Factor Treatment rejuvenation?
While Growth Factor Treatment is considered safe for most people, it’s not recommended for anyone who has one of the following medical conditions:
- Hepatitis C
- HIV or AIDS
- Any type of blood cancer
- Cardiovascular disease, which requires taking a blood thinner
- Skin cancer in the area to be treated
These conditions affect your platelets, making them unable to deliver the expected results.
How long do the results last?
Results can last as long as 18 months.
Indications of Growth Factor Treatment in Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine
1) Growth Factor Treatment in skin lesions and wound healing
Growth Factor Treatment is defined as an autologous biological product derived from the patient’s blood, and in which after a centrifugation process a plasma fraction is obtained with a platelet concentration higher than that in circulating blood . Platelets play a crucial role in the wound healing process thanks to their hemostatic function and presence of cytokines and growth factors
2- Growth Factor Treatment In skin and facial rejuvenation,
Growth Factor Treatment can produce a dramatic improvement in skin quality, firmness, and glow. When injected into the facial skin, Growth Factor Treatment triggers the natural regenerative processes to restore skin quality.
A Growth Factor Treatment is a simple three-step process of drawing blood from the patient, processing the blood to separate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet rich plasma into the area needing regeneration and rejuvenation. Growth Factor Treatment can produce a dramatic improvement in hair growth when injected into the scalp to trigger hair growth. When injected into the facial skin, Growth Factor Treatment stimulates natural skin regeneration for a beautiful, natural rejuvenation becoming visible over the weeks and months ahead.
What Can I Expect
After the blood is drawn and processed to separate the platelet rich plasma, the Growth Factor Treatment is then injected back into the targeted areas using a small needle, similar those used to inject dermal fillers. The process takes less than an hour and involves very little discomfort.
Recovery from Growth Factor Treatment injections is immediate and most patients continue on with their day after the treatment. Patients may experience redness or pinprick bleeding at the injection site.
Results from Growth Factor Treatment injection treatment such as increased hydration and more even skin tone will begin to appear at about three to four weeks. Improvements in volume will become more noticeable around four to six weeks and continue for several months as natural collagen regenerates. To achieve optimal results in skin regeneration, two more treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart may be advised.
Growth Factor Treatment Works for
- Cheeks and Mid face
- Thinning skin on the neck
- Jaw Line
- Back of hands
- Knees, elbows, upper arms, post baby tummy
- sun damage
- skin health & rejuvenation
- skin texture around eyes, on neck
3- Growth Factor Treatment IN hair restoration, Hair Loss
Growth Factor Treatment is a revolutionary new treatment method for patients suffering from alopecia (a condition where men lose their hair at a particular age due to genetics). Growth Factor Therapy takes place by injecting activated serum into the scalp; with the objective of stimulating the scalp to endorse hair growth.
4- Growth Factor Treatment in breast reconstruction
Vampire Breast Lift
A vampire breast lift (VBL) augments your breasts without surgery. Providers inject Growth Factor Treatment to improve skin texture and make your breasts appear fuller. Side effects are minimal, but may include bruising, swelling and tenderness, and there’s no downtime. Long-term complications
VBL uses injections of Growth Factor Treatment. This procedure is also known as a Growth Factor Treatment breast lift.
A vampire breast lift may help to:
- Increases elastin (a protein that allows tissue to stretch).
- Promotes growth of collagen (a protein that provides structure to your body).
- Stimulates new cell growth.
- Improve skin texture and tone.
- Make your breasts look lifted and fuller.
- Reduce the look of ⦁ wrinkles, ⦁ stretch marks and ⦁ scars.
What happens during a vampire breast lift?
During a vampire breast lift, your provider will take a blood sample, usually from your arm. They’ll spin the blood in a centrifuge machine to separate the Growth Factor Treatment.
Your provider will apply a numbing cream to your breasts to decrease your sensitivity during the procedure. Then they use a thin needle to inject Growth Factor Treatment into areas throughout your breasts.
The injections generally take about 20 minutes. The entire procedure usually lasts less than an hour.
5) Growth Factor Treatment in female sexual dysfunction Vaginal rejuvenation
Growth Factor Treatment aims to increase the self-healing ability of the human body by increasing neovascularization and collagen formation through the effect of high concentration autologous growth factors administered to the tissue(1). The most important advantages are it being autologous and reliable
Growth Factor Treatment has been used in atrophic diseases such as lichen sclerosis in the vagina, stress urinary incontinence, episiotomy scars, and lubrication disorders in the vagina
Improvement of sexual functions was reported with Growth Factor Treatment administration to the G-spot.
Growth Factor Treatment has the potential to be part of a non-hormonal approach in patients with sexual dysfunction with regenerative changes by increasing collagen formation and neovascularization in the anterior vaginal wall.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Growth Factor Treatment injections to the lower anterior vaginal wall on sexual function, orgasm, and genital perception of patients with sexual dysfunction.
Growth Factor Treatment as a vaginal rejuvenation treatment can help with symptoms related to Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). These include:
- Female Orgasmic Disorder – When you have difficulty reaching climax, even if you feel the drive to be intimate.
- Dyspareunia – Pain or physical discomfort during intercourse.
- Difficulty Becoming Aroused – This may happen for a multitude of reasons including vaginal dryness, lack of sensation, blood flow issues, and more
– Growth Factor Treatment In male sexual > Priapus Shot < p shot
- Improve sexual performance
- Enhance appearance, sensation and pleasure
- Increase in penis size
- Increase in sexual stamina – maintain a longer and more fulfilling sex life
Growth Factor Treatment in musculoskeletal regeneration: Growth Factor Treatment is becoming more popular as a nonoperative treatment option for a broad spectrum of medical disorders. Growth Factor Treatment is widely used in orthopedic and sports medicine to relieve pain through the natural promotion of healing in musculoskeletal diseases such as tendonitis, arthritis, ligament sprains, and tears. In particular, Growth Factor Treatment injections have been used for athletic injuries, resulting in exceptional healing, a rapid return to regular activities, and complete pain relief
What Is Growth Factor Treatment?
Growth Factor Treatment is in the category of regenerative autologous treatments, which means it comes from your own blood and can stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are one of the cells in our blood and when activated, they can release growth factors and other proteins.
What Benefits Can a Man Have from the P-Shot®?
- Stronger, firmer erections
- Easier to achieve and maintain erections (i.e., improved sexual stamina)
- Increased penile length and girth
- Improvement in or resolution of penile curvature from Peyronie’s Disease
- Resolution of penile pain with erection
- Increased sensitivity in the penis
- Better overall blood flow to the penis
Is the P-Shot® the Same Thing as Trimix Injections?
No. TriMix is a shot to produce an erection for a brief period of time and must be given every time you wish to have an erection; however, the P-Shot® is a treatment that revives and enhances your natural erections.
How Does the P-Shot Work?
The growth factors & proteins released by the high concentration of platelets in Growth Factor Treatment in turn activate stems cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occurs and further aids in tissue repair.
How Is Growth Factor Treatment for the P-Shot Acquired?
A small amount of blood is drawn in the office at the time of the procedure. Your blood is then spun in a specially designed centrifuge which separates the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelets are isolated and then injected back into the body wherever their benefits are needed. Along with numbing cream on the skin, a block is performed on the penis, so there is no pain.
How Long Does the P-Shot Procedure Take to Perform?
The Growth Factor Treatment injection is performed in our office. It should take about 60 minutes from start to finish but we do usually allow a little extra time. You may drive yourself home after the procedure.
7- Growth Factor Treatment in musculoskeletal regeneration.
Growth Factor Treatment is an autologous blood-derived product that has an increased concentration of platelets that are rich in growth factors, and has the potential to enhance the healing of tissue at the cellular level via the recruitment, proliferation, and differentiation of cells involved in tissue regeneration. There have been a number of studies on the effect of Growth Factor Treatment at the preclinical and clinical level in musculoskeletal medicine, some of which we will highlight in this article.
Growth Factor Treatment is becoming more popular as a nonoperative treatment option for a broad spectrum of medical disorders. Growth Factor Treatment is widely used in orthopedic and sports medicine to relieve pain through the natural promotion of healing in musculoskeletal diseases such as tendonitis, arthritis, ligament sprains, and tears. In particular, Growth Factor Treatment injections have been used for athletic injuries, resulting in exceptional healing, a rapid return to regular activities, and complete pain relief.
