What is Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC)
Therapy for Hair?

Are you suffering from hair loss? Is it affecting your confidence and everyday life?

If the answer is yes, you should consider Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy for hair. Mumbai residents suffering from hair loss can contact us at the Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic today, to find out how this innovative therapy can change your life.

Growth factor concentrate therapy is a breakthrough treatment for hair loss. Scientists at Wockhardt Ltd. (a global pharmaceutical and biotechnology company) have devised a way to create a highly concentrated growth factor preparation, engineered from a person’s own blood.

The growth factors that are found in our platelets are extracted in high concentrations and then injected into the scalp stimulating the repair and regeneration of hair. The key factor is that a patient is receiving high concentrations of their own growth factors, right into the hair follicles which is why results are so effective. The following growth factors are extracted:

  • Epidermal growth factor
  • Platelet-derived growth factor
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor
  • Fibroblast growth factor

Is Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy For You?

Both men and women suffering from hair loss are suitable for GFC therapy.

However, those suffering from hair thinning or loss as a result of hormones, hereditary conditions or patients in their early or late stage of Alopecia are the best candidates.

Causes of Hair Loss

There are a number of different factors that can cause you to lose your hair:

  • Stress
  • Medical conditions
  • Hormonal changes
  • Hereditary
  • Medications
  • Certain hairstyles and hair treatments
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Alopecia
  • Weight loss

How Does it Work?

There are three stages to the treatment:

Blood Collection

Firstly blood is drawn, most likely from your arm, as if you were having a normal blood test.

Growth factors

The blood is then separated and the growth factors are collected and prepared for treatment.

Inject Treatment Area

This Growth Factor Concentrate is then administered to the affected areas, using micro-injections to deliver them right into the hair roots.

Length of the Procedure

The procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours depending on how many areas are being treated.

Pain and pain management during the procedure

There is virtually no pain at all during the procedure but topical numbing cream can be applied to minimise any pain.

Recovery Time

The recovery time after the procedure is very short. Some patients reported feeling a mild headache and slight pain after treatment but this only lasted for approximately an hour.

Expected results from GFC treatment for hair

Hair Growth

New hair growth can sometimes be seen as early as 30 days after treatment. However, most patients start to see the full results after 3 to 6 months.

Possible side-effects

As GFC is a pure substance taken from a patient’s own blood, it doesn’t contain any unwanted cells. As a result, the risk of any side effects is minimal. Any pain or inflammation is usually a result of the injection but these resolve very quickly, normally after 24 hours.

How many sessions of GFC are required?

In order to get the best results, we recommend having 3 to 4 sessions of GFC approximately every 45 days.

Homecare and healing after GFC

One of the great benefits of GFC for hair is that there is virtually no downtime and you can resume your normal activities immediately. You can wash your hair as normal and carry on with your daily routine. However you should avoid coloring or perming your hair for the first 3 days after treatment to avoid any unnecessary issues.
