WHAT IS Natural Growth Factor?

Natural Growth Factor is the preparation of your own blood that contains only the platelets and plasma. Natural Growth Factor contains a super-concentrated source of growth factors that can be applied directly to the face, scalp, or body to address flaws and help with the signs of aging.


Botox is a highly effective treatment for frown lines, worry lines, forehead wrinkles, and Crow’s feet. It will give your skin a soft, smooth, natural appearance. Botox can also be used to decrease extreme underarm sweating and provide relief to some nerve conditions. Botox and Dysport neuromodulators work by causing a blockage between the nerves and the muscles. This blockage causes the skin to relax, thus providing a softer, smoother look.

The sensation associated with this procedure is minimal, and most patients compare it to a bug bite. This procedure can be done relatively quickly [i.e., during a lunch break], and a patient may return back to work with no downtime.

Dysport temporarily relaxes the facial muscles between your eyebrows so that you won’t feel frozen in place. The muscles in untreated areas of your face can move normally.

Neurotoxin injections such as Botox or Dysport are best recommended for individuals with fine wrinkles caused or aggravated by facial expressions. The formula that’s right for you will be determined during your consultation.

Face wrinkles, lines around the eyes and lips, neck wrinkles, and chin wrinkles are treated with Botox. Dysport treats lines between the brows.

It typically takes between 24-and 48 hours for the results to become visible.

Preparing For Your Treatment

What is Natural Growth Factor for Hair Restoration?

Natural Growth Factor therapy for hair restoration is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s own blood is drawn, processed, and then injected or applied to the scalp.

Natural Growth Factor injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications/supplements.
