What To Expect
How it works
Growth factor injections use a cocktail of growth factors is isolated from a sample of your own blood. The platelets normally present in your blood play an important role in healing, allowing these injection treatments to help proliferate cell growth. For this purpose, we offer either a formula with at least twice the platelet concentration of regular blood, or a formula with five times the platelet concentration. The specialized formula is most commonly injected into the scalp for the purpose of stimulating follicular regeneration and hair growth, but is also used on the face and body to improve skin texture, tone, stretch marks and scarring. The exciting and powerful science behind this treatment is at the cutting edge of many medical specialties.
How we do it
This treatment usually involves a 30-60-minute appointment in our office, where we will first draw a sample of your blood and spin it to the appropriate platelet concentration. We use a topical anesthetic as needed to minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
The injections are quick and relatively painless, and you can feel free to return to your daily routine immediately following scalp treatment. There may be 1-5 days of redness after treatment of the face or body. We recommend avoiding wearing makeup for 24 hours in any treated areas.
Time to full effect
Depending on your particular needs, Dr. Day will recommend the best treatment protocol for you. We also frequently use the plasma as an enriching topical that can be applied during rejuvenating microneedling treatments. Patients are thrilled with the transformative effect this treatment can have on their hair growth or skin rejuvenation journey.
