The demand for non-invasive cosmetic procedures is constantly increasing, but the one treatment that has seen the most significant growth in popularity is non-surgical skin tightening.
Growth Factor Therapy is a non-surgical, natural treatment that uses the thrombocytes from your own blood to promote skin regeneration and stimulate the body’s healing abilities. These activated thrombocytes secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors that enhance the natural healing process of the skin.
During a Growth Factor Therapy treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and thrombocytes from the other blood components.
After a few minutes, the Growth Factor Therapy layer is removed and is ready to be reintroduced into the body. Using a very fine sterile needle, your medical practitioner will inject the Growth Factor Therapy in and around the specific area to be treated.
The production of new collagen induced by the Growth Factor Therapy treatment will brighten, rejuvenate and re-hydrate the skin even after the first treatment. To experience the full effects of this pioneering technique, a course of 3 to 4 treatments is usually recommended.
Microneedling treatment uses very fine needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These minuscule contact points or “micro injuries” encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs itself, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, resulting in an almost immediate plumping effect. Microneedling treatment can also help address other skin damage such as scarring, dark pigmentation, sun damage and the effects of aging.
