What is Growth Factor Hair Therapy?

Growth factor hair therapy is a cutting-edge injectable treatment for hair fall offered by Dr. Ravali Yalamanchili. The advanced GFC treatment in Hyderabad performed at the clinic can help repair and regenerate the damaged hair follicles, strengthening and thickening the fine, thin hair that grows from them. It is a non-surgical, safe, proven therapy that does not involve the use of repetitive everyday application of chemicals to grow hair. Instead, it involves the use of natural growth factors present in blood which are administered into the targeted sites of hair thinning or balding to repair the damaged hair cells and encourage hair growth.

How do Growth Factor Injections Work for Hair Fall?

Hair follicles are small tubular sacs that anchor individual hair to the scalp. When these shrink or get weak, the hair tends to fall out. The activating natural growth factors and other essential proteins that help in soft tissue healing that are derived from the patient’s blood sample helps improve the blood supply to these hair follicles and in turn increase the thickness of the hair shafts.

Hair Fall Treatment Procedure

The overall treatment lasts for about 30 minutes. It involves following steps:

Collection of the patient’s blood sample

The doctor draws the patient’s blood from the arm and transfers it into a centrifuge tube.

Processing of the blood

The collected blood sample is then spun in a centrifuge machine for about 10 minutes at specific high speed to separate out different blood components. At the end of this step, the doctor gets three layers within the tube (from top to bottom): the growth factor rich layer, low growth factor layer, and the RBCs.

Preparation of growth factor injections

With the help of a collecting sterile syringe, the growth factor concentrates are collected and then applied at the treatment sites of the scalp.

Which growth factors are beneficial for treatment of hair fall?

There are various growth factors within blood pla-tel-ets, that can help in repair and regeneration of the tissues and also special cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation.

Thus, each of the following growth factor have a role in combating hair fall/loss:

  • Pla-te-let-derived Growth Factor (PDGF): It helps enhance hair growth and stimulates vascularisation and angiogenesis.
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): It is expressed in the dermal papilla cells- cluster of mesenchymal cells lying at the bottom of every hair follicle, that lies in the anagen phase of normal hair growth cycle and regulates perifollicular angiogenesis in hair as well as increases perifollicular vessel size.
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): It encourages proliferation and regeneration of hair cells and induces mitogenesis of mesenchymal and epithelial cells. Moreover, it co-induces angiogenesis. 
  • In-su-lin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1): It maintains the growth of hair strands from the hair follicles, enhances overall healthy hair growth, and acts as angiogenesis stimulator.
  • Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGF-b): This aids the growth of the matrix in between the hair cells.
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2): It supports formation of specialised cells and new blood vessels.
