What You Need to Know About Natural Growth Factors

There has been a lot of recent buzz about various cosmetic procedures that contain natural growth factors. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta uses this advanced technology for a variety of reasons that enhance the results of treatments. Our dermatology providers would like to share certain relevant information about growth factors with our patients.

What You Need to Know About PRPWhat Are Natural Growth Factors?

The beauty of growth factors lies in how they use a patient’s own body to complete the procedure. An experienced, licensed provider at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta will begin the process by safely drawing blood and placing it in a centrifuge that separates it into specific components. Afterward, the growth factors can be extracted, which is the useful component for various types of treatments.

Which Treatments Utilize Growth Factors?

Natural growth factors are highly versatile in their use. Patients can enjoy improved results with the following types of procedures:

Because growth factors come from a patient’s own body, there is a significantly decreased chance of an allergic or adverse reaction occurring during the procedure. Results are also enhanced because the body doesn’t have to adapt to a foreign material.  

Advantages of Natural Growth Factors for Sexual Health

Growth factors further prove their versatility by quickly becoming an effective way to treat conditions that pertain to sexual health. Complications with male sexual arousal can be safely helped with a P-Shot®. Erectile dysfunction is a common problem that can cause issues with mental health and self-confidence. With the P-Shot®, men may reclaim their control on their sexual ability.

How Growth Factors Benefit Your Skin

One of the most common applications for growth factors is skin restoration and rejuvenation. Since they rebuild collagen in targeted areas, this process has a unique ability to substantially reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Patients can enjoy their younger and firmer skin after pairing natural growth factors, Restylane®, Juvéderm® and more.

For patients who have acne scarring, it’s common to feel that it’s too late to have clear and healthy-looking skin. Thankfully, this feeling is proven wrong when biological growth factors are combined with fat transfer because of this combination’s success with greatly reducing the appearance of scar tissue on the skin’s surface.

Hair Restoration with Natural Growth Factors

Growth factors are now widely used to combat hair loss in both men and women. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta has frequently used this technique with some of our hair loss patients for years because of the clear improvements that are made. Our experienced providers administer growth factors through micro needling, which entices the body to stimulate the hair follicles in the scalp. For best results, patients can receive procedures every six weeks. Results can be noticeable after a few treatments.
