What are Growth Factors Treatments?

Growth factors are a non-surgical method of treating the patient with his or her own blood. Growth factors have been used in many different medical specialties, not just for treating hair loss. For instance, growth factors have been a successful treatment for tendon injuries and other orthopedic applications for many years. This is due to the way the blood is prepared and used to stimulate growth in the body.

Once the blood has been drawn, it is put through a process known as centrifugation, which involves separating the growth factors from the red blood cells. By concentrating the growth factors count in the remaining growth factors, the resulting growth factors can help patients grow hair, recover from injuries, or reap other medical benefits. When used for hair loss, the growth factors solution is injected and microneedled directly into the scalp to stimulate hair follicles to produce more hair growth.

Growth factors are a non-surgical method of treating the patient with his or her own blood.

About a year ago, I was discussing my receding hairline with my primary care physician when she mentioned Dr. Rubinstein. I decided to give him a call, and from that point on, I never looked back. Beginning in April, Dr. Rubinstein started his growth factors hair restoration treatment, addressing my hair loss. I just finished up two months ago and am already so pleased with the results. Everything looks better than expected. I feel absolutely wonderful and so much more comfortable with my appearance. From the minute you walk into the office, the staff makes you feel like part of the extended family. Without question, I recommend Dr. Rubinstein and his team for growth factor hair restoration treatment.

I’m a long-term patient of Dr. Rubinstein’s. I recently had growth factors injections for hair loss due to my thyroid condition. My experience was so great. I tried everything under the sun and nothing worked until I had the plasma injections. Dr. Rubinstein delivered amazing results once again. He’s the best. Without hesitation, I would recommend him to other patients.

Dr. Rubinstein just performed my fourth Clear & Brillant Laser and growth factors for hair loss procedures. I’m in my 50’s and blotching and uneven skin tone was really making me look older. Hereditary hair loss, which I was very unhappy about, wasn’t helping my cause either. I’ve been coming to Dr. Rubinstein for skin care and Botox for a long time, probably about 15 years now, so I made an appointment as soon as I was ready. I’ve always been satisfied with Dr. Rubinstein, his staff, and my results, and this time was no different. My skin looks 100% better and my hair has completely grown back. I’m so glad I have a great physician to help me with my problems. I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied. Thanks so much, Dr. Rubinstein.

My hair has been thinning and I started seeing my scalp showing since my early 40s. Today, at 60, my hair is full and my scalp is no longer showing. I have done PRP before at a different facility, but the results were not visually noticeable. My experience within the last year with Laser and Cosmetic Surgery and their use of micro-needling has been phenomenal. The results are obvious to my family and friends; I could not be happier.

Who is an ideal candidate for PRP?

The best candidates for growth factors treatments are men and women with thinning hair, optimally when hair loss is just beginning to become apparent. While growth factors can be effective in people who already have significant balding, it has proven most effective for thinning hair and further hair loss prevention. Patients should be in good health, and have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure. The effectiveness of the treatments can vary from one patient to another, and being aware of this can help prevent unrealistic expectations.

the procedure

The PRP HAIR RESTORATION Procedure

The growth factors treatment itself is very straightforward. The entire process takes about 30 minutes.  First, blood is drawn for processing. It is then refined to concentrate growth factors levels, making it suitable to stimulate hair growth.  Once the growth factors is fully prepared, the scalp will be cleaned, and the growth factors will be injected and microneedled directly into the areas affected by hair growth.  There is minimal discomfort as we offer Pro-Nox (inhaled nitrous oxide gas) during the procedure.  Sedation is not required, and patients can drive themselves home after each treatment.  Most patients will require 4 initial treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart followed by maintenance treatments 2 times per year.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS Procedure: Recovery and Downtime

Because the procedure is minimally invasive, patients are able to get back to their normal activities almost immediately. Patients may experience minor swelling, bleeding, and bruising of the scalp following Growth Factors treatment, due to the fine needles used to deliver the growth factors. However, these side effects should subside fairly quickly and are generally well controlled with Tylenol and ice as needed. There is almost no limitation on normal activity following growth factors; we only recommend refraining from exercise on the day of treatment following injections. This makes the treatment ideal for busy lifestyles.

Results of PRP Procedure

Though most people see at least some hair regrowth with growth factors, the results are not instantaneous. Due to the hair growth cycle and the natural stimulation provided by growth factors treatments, most patients should expect to see results within 3-6 months. It’s important to note that results will vary based on the individual and the stage of hair growth they were in when starting treatments. For best results, patients must be committed to undergoing regular treatments.

FAQ about PRP Hair TREATMENT

Are all growth factors treatments the same?  

No, not all Growth Factors treatments are the same.  There are many devices on the market that concentrate growth factors.  For optimal hair growth, growth factors have to be concentrated at least 4 to 6 times from baseline.  Dr. Rubinstein uses the Eclipse system which produces a high concentration of growth factors.

Can growth factors treatments be combined with other hair treatments?

There are several adjuvant therapies that when added to your Growth Factors hair treatments, can further enhance results. These include the use of topical minoxidil (Rogaine®) and LED laser light therapy, a complimentary in-office service offered to patients while their Growth Factors is prepared. Additionally, we recommend all patients take Viviscal Professional®, a natural medical grade hair loss supplement clinically proven to significantly increase the number of terminal hairs and decrease hair shedding (1). Certain patients may also benefit from oral minoxidil and/or finasteride.* The need for oral therapy will be assessed during a patient’s personalized hair loss consultation.
*finasteride may be prescribed to male patients only

Does adding microneedling to my growth factors hair treatment have added value?

Yes, adding microneedling to Growth Factors hair treatments has been clinically shown to enhance the result and requires fewer maintenance treatments over time in comparison to Growth Factors injections alone(1).

Are there any risks to growth factors treatments?

Since the procedure uses the patient’s own blood, there is no risk for allergic reactions. The procedure itself is minimally invasive, and the only expected side effects are minor bruising, swelling, and bleeding. Growth Factors is a very safe treatment with few risks for healthy patients.

How many treatments will I need to see good results?

Most surgeons recommend at least 4 treatments, though more may be required. These treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Once this initial series is completed, patients should receive a maintenance treatment every 6 months depending on their surgeon’s recommendations.

Can I undergo growth factors while I’m receiving chemo treatments?

Yes. While the treatment is most successful for patients who have diffuse hair loss or thinning hair, it can also be successful for people with inactive follicles.

How long does each session take?

Treatment times vary, but each session typically does not take more than 30 minutes.

Can growth factors be used with a hair transplant?

Absolutely. By combining Growth Factors with a surgical hair transplant, growth is stimulated and patients often see superior results than if a single procedure is used.

Are the results permanent?

Unfortunately, hair loss is an ongoing problem. It’s important to undergo regular maintenance treatments to help reduce hair loss over time, especially as aging progresses. Growth Factors treatments aren’t a permanent solution—they’re part of an ongoing effort to circumvent hair loss.

Is the treatment different for women than it is for men?

No, Growth Factors works the same for both men and women. Growth Factors is often very successful in women, because the hair loss pattern is typically more diffuse, which is the ideal condition for Growth Factors success.

Does the growth factors treatment hurt?

There is minimal discomfort. If necessary, icing is helpful for those who experience discomfort with the injections. When Growth Factors is combined with microneedling, we offer Pro-Nox (inhaled nitrous oxide gas) to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. Note that patients can still drive themselves to and from their appointment if using Pro-Nox. Swelling and bruising can cause some discomfort after the treatment, but subside quickly. These symptoms can be managed effectively at home with Tylenol and topical ice.

Could growth factors be dangerous for some patients?

Some patients should not undergo Growth Factors, including heavy smokers or drinkers, people with low growth factors counts, recent sepsis or cancer patients, and patients who have blood clotting problems. Unstable low blood pressure and cortisone treatments may also make patients ineligible for treatment.
