Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy

GFC treatment in Bangalore

Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy, often known as GFC treatment, is a focused growth factor preparation made from an individual's blood cells that are highly safe and dedicated, and offer superior natural results. 

Numerous growth agents have been added to blood platelets. The gathered GFC is then provided at the location for treatment with specialized equipment and tools. The entire procedure is non-pyrogenous, secure, and spontaneously regenerates damaged tissues without any platelet loss. 

Since the treatment is made from the patient's blood without any contamination, it has no adverse effects, it is completely safe, pure, and effective.

After a hair transplant, it is the best way to regrow lost hair. The most recent and cutting-edge hair loss treatment, GFC treatment in Bangalore, only requires 3–4 sessions to produce the desired outcomes.

Growth Factors associated with GFC Therapy

Blood platelets hold a variety of growth factors that support stem cell growth, migration, and differentiation as well as tissue regeneration and repair. As a result, each GFC has a different function in preventing hair loss. These are as follows:

  • Platelet-derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
PDGF stimulates angiogenesis and vascularization while also promoting hair growth. Additionally, it aids in the proliferation and chemotaxis of fibroblasts and the mitogenesis of endothelium and mesenchymal stem cells.
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
EGF increases mesenchymal and epithelial cell mitogenesis and promotes hair cell proliferation and regeneration. Furthermore, it simultaneously induces angiogenesis.
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
VEGF promotes perifollicular angiogenesis in hair and is expressed in DP cells during the anagen phase of hair growth. In order to speed up the process, it also increases the size of the perifollicular vessels even during the anagen growth stage.
  • Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1)
IGF-1 stimulates angiogenesis, promotes total hair growth, and sustains HF growth.

How is GFC being prepared?

There are a few steps for GFC to get prepared and these are as follows:
Step 1: Gathering of Blood
Peripheral blood from the patient is drawn, and 4 GFC tubes are equally divided to hold 15 to 16 ml of it.
Step 2: Activation of Platelet and Release of Growth Factors or GFs
The blood is mixed gently in this phase by the tube being inverted 6–10 times, and then they are left to stand for around 30 minutes. By releasing PDGF, VEGF, EGF, and IGF-1 from the platelets, the GFC treatment tube helps activate platelets.
Step 3: Separation of GFC
Following that, the four tubes are centrifuged for 10 minutes at 3,400 rpm to help with counterbalancing. Furthermore, it assists in the separation of pure GPs from RBCs, WBCs, as well as other blood cells.
Step 4: Gathering of GFC
GFC and Autologous growth factor concentrations are gathered in the tubes. GFC is collected at the tube cap and is subsequently collected using a collecting syringe. The needle's tip is inserted just beneath the tube's cover. Maximum GFC recovery is achievable.
Step 5: Application of GFC
The GFC that was gathered is now prepared for implementation. GFC output can be a variety of colors, notably yellow, yellowish brown, orange, and reddish.

Advantages of Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy

The next-generation hair loss treatment, GFC Therapy, supplies higher-quality growth factors in higher quantities to the patient. Several advantages of GFC include:
  • Highly efficient and encourages enhanced and natural regeneration.
  • Guaranteed statistically significant improvement in hair thickness and density.
  • made from the candidate's blood, completely safe.
  • There are neither RBCs nor WBCs involved, lowering the risk of discomfort and inflammation.
  • The procedure guarantees both convenience and quality.
  • The least amount of sessions are needed to achieve the best results.
Results of GFC therapy
  • It helps to reduce hair fall and rejuvenates hair follicles.
  • It strengthens the hair grafts and also promotes hair growth.
  • It improves hair volume and thickness.
It is also very important to remember that the GFC hair treatment takes about 3–4 sessions to start working. Moreover, it is combined with other oral or topical drugs to lessen pain and swelling. Within one week of the therapy session, most negative effects disappear.

GFC is highly effective for males and females with the late or early signs of Alopecia. In order to ensure this, it is important to get an individual's scalp diagnosed by the best dermatologist in Bangalore at Sakra World Hospital where the eminent doctors are going to suggest the best possible treatment for hair loss for an individual.
