Growth Factor Lift


Growth Factor Lift is an emerging treatment that offers a promising solution to rejuvenate skin naturally.

How does Growth Factor Lift works ?

The science behind Growth Factor Lift is to utilize our body’s natural ability to heal itself. Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets suspended in plasma. Platelets play a fundamental role in wound healing because it releases growth factors to stimulate soft tissue healing and repair. Growth Factor Lift involves the application of concentrated platelets to the skin, which releases growth factors to promote skin rejuvenation and recovery.

How is the procedure like ?

Platelets are derived from your own blood by taking a blood sample and then processing the blood via centrifugation. This separates out the platelet rich component from whole blood. Local anaesthetic cream will be used to numb the skin prior to treatment. This concentrated source of platelets when injected back to the skin, will initiate collagen synthesis and skin rejuvenation. The whole procedure takes about an 30 minutes.

Who are the best candidates for Growth Factor Lift ?

As Growth Factor Lift is a minimally invasive procedure with a short recovery time, most patients with signs of aging and who cannot afford to take a lot of time away from work or social life are good candidates. It is most suitable for patients who wish to look younger but do not want any drastic changes to their appearance and who prefers a “natural” approach (using our body’s natural ability) to rejuvenate their skin. In addition, younger patients in their thirties can also receive PRP injection as a preventative and maintenance treatment.

How soon can I see the results from Growth Factor Lift ?

The patient will be able to observe skin textural changes as soon as the mild swelling & bruising has subsided (usually one week). Early visible changes include smoother, more glowing and brighter skin. As collagen remodeling may take up to 6 months, the skin will gradually become firmer and naturally improve over time. In most patients, it would be best to wait for at least three months for the skin firming and wrinkles reduction effects to be noticeable.

How long does the effects from Growth Factor Lift last ?

Depending on the patient’s age and skin condition, the effects usually last up to a year. There will be variations from one person to another person depending on factors such as smoking, sunlight exposure and general health status.

What are the possible side effects from Growth Factor Lift ?

Because the growth factors are derived from our own blood, it is considered a natural product and there is minimal risk of an allergic reaction. Common side effects are bruising, local pain and swelling that may last from a few days up to a week.
