Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC)
Hair Loss treatment
Inspired by the ancient Greeks, Monaris Hair Clinic brings the latest innovation of Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC) for hair loss treatment. This treatment is non-surgical that utilizes a person’s own growth factors that are found in their body, to rejuvenate their hair.
In this procedure, the blood is extracted from the scalp of the patient, and the growth factors are extracted from the platelets which are processed and then injected into the scalp with the precise tools. The total process is non-pyrogenous, secure, and organically regenerates damaged tissues with no platelet loss.
The GFC treatment is a very safe, concentrated growth factor preparation made from the candidate’s blood cells that provides excellent natural results.
Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy for Hair Loss
What are different Growth Factors associated with GFC treatment?
Blood platelets hold a variety of growth factors that aid tissue regeneration and repair, as well as stem cell proliferation. As a result, each GFC has a unique function to play in the fight against hair loss.
To name the following are the factors involved:
- Platelet-derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1)
What are the advantages of Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy?
- Extremely effective, promoting natural and increased regeneration of hair.
- Guaranteed statistically significant increase in hair count and thickness.
- 100 percent safe and made from the blood of the candidate.
- There are no RBCs or WBCs involved, lowering the likelihood of discomfort and inflammation.
- The technique ensures convenience and high quality.
- Fewer sessions are required to achieve optimal outcomes.
Is GFC different from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, was first used as a thrombocytopenia treatment in the 1970s, and then became popular in Cosmetology in the 2000s. PRP is a biological product or a fraction of autologous blood plasma with platelet concentrations above the baseline.
Many obstacles were encountered while using this therapy for hair loss treatment as it does not offer growth factors but platelets, there were no defined protocols involved, and there was no way of determining the quality and quantity clarity which led to contradicting results, and the technique was complex.
GFC treatments are similarly generated from the patient’s blood, with platelet activation providing only high quantities of growth factors. As a result, there is no platelet loss, and the process is simple to carry out. As a result, the overall results are optimal, with minimum pain, irritation, and infection risks, and the operation takes less time.
Who are the eligible candidates for Growth Factor Concentrate Treatment?
Males and females with early or late indications of alopecia benefit equally from GFC treatment. However, to be sure, you should get your scalp examined by a specialist who specializes in this area and they will advise you on the best remedy for your hair loss.
How much does GFC treatment cost?
Despite being a revolutionary hair loss treatment and superior to PRP, GFC therapy treatment is very inexpensive. Furthermore, depending on the treated area, it provides obvious effects during the first few sessions of therapy.
