Skin cell growth factors (epidermal growth factors) virtually function as an intensive cure for the regeneration of your skin. In contrast to autologous fat injections and treatment with stem cells or stem cell-enriched autologous fat, therapy with growth factors is suited for regular applications at home. Your face will be rosier, firmer and visibly regenerated.
How Is Treatment with Growth Factors Carried out?
Skin cell growth factors are administered as a serum. Different types of serums have different effects (e.g., skin rejuvenation, breaking down fat, depigmentation, hair growth). You use the serum indicated accordingly, which is optimized to your specific requirements and wishes. It is also possible to use combinations of several serums.
In general, treatment cycles of several weeks are recommended. You can choose if you want to have individual treatments performed in our clinic or carry them out yourself at home after receiving instruction on them from us.
The procedure is simple: After disinfecting the areas to be treated, you can, if required, anesthetize the facial skin locally with an anesthetic cream. After a short period during which the cream takes effect, apply the serum to your face and work it into the lower layers of the skin using a very fine, short micro-needle roller. Treatment is usually carried out several times a week, in the evening before going to bed.
According to the type of serum used, skin regeneration and firming, cellulite treatment, depigmentation, fat reduction and/or hair growth can be achieved with regular applications over a longer period.
Small bruises, reddening and slight swelling may occasionally appear after this so-called micro-needle mesotherapy treatment with growth factors. You will be fully mobile immediately after each treatment session and can work as normal. We recommend carrying out facial treatment in the evening before going to bed. You can then usually apply make-up again the next morning.
A combination with other treatments is possible. In individual cases, growth factors can also be useful to enhance the effect of stem cell treatment. Combined with hormonal regeneration cures, local application of growth factors often shows very good results when treating cellulite and skin regeneration for the face and body.
