The latest in hair restorative treatments is undoubtedly Acellular Autologous Growth Factor concentrate. It is an advancement over Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and encompasses the following:
An appropriate amount of blood is withdrawn into the patented GFC vacutainers and allowed to stand for 30 mins after which they are subjected to centrifugation at 3000 rpm for 10 mins.
Once the GFC is ready, it is transferred into syringes for injection into the zone of hair loss/thinning which would have been cleaned and prepared with numbing cream (anaesthetic cream) in advance, so as to ensure minimal pain during therapy.
Studies have shown an average of 70% increase in hair thickness and 21% increase in hair count after 3 monthly sessions of GFC therapy.
It is indicated for Androgenetic Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata and other hair loss conditions.
