Growth Factor Injections Q&A

What are Growth Factor Injections?

Blood contains red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets are an important compound that contain growth compounds and clot and heal wounds.

At Opulence Modern Medical Artistry, the team concentrates the healing value of platelets in Growth Factor Injections. They draw a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. They combine these platelets with your plasma to create an impressive compound that has the power to rejuvenate your face and give you a radiant, youthful look.

How do Growth Factor Injections enhance the skin?

The team at Opulence Modern Medical Artistry uses Growth Factor Injections in a procedure that includes microneedling. A device equipped with micro-needles glides across your face to create tiny wounds. Your provider then applies the Growth Factor Injection to your skin to enter through these punctures and nourish multiple layers of your skin. The result is greater skin regeneration and cell turnover.

The micro-wounds created during the Growth Factor Injections treatment are invisible to the eye, but still trigger your body’s natural wound-healing responses. Your cells use the PRP to build more collagen and develop stronger, more elastic skin. You also get a boost in antioxidants and hydrating properties to improve your skin’s look and function.

Am I a candidate for a Growth Factor Injection? 

If you have sun damage, premature wrinkles, or a dull, irregular skin tone, you’d benefit from a Growth Factor Injections or Vampire Facial. Growth Factor Injections also helps with the appearance of acne scars or large pores. Talk to the team at Opulence Modern Medical Artistry to determine if PRP is right for you.

What downtime should I plan for following Growth Factor Injections treatment?

Immediately following a Growth Factor Injections, you may have some swelling and visible redness. This resolves quickly – usually within a day or two. Expect full healing to take about five days, during which time you apply serums and balms to enhance your results.

Because Growth Factor Injections uses your blood, you aren’t at risk of rejecting it or having an allergic reaction. Recovery isn’t painful, and you can even put on makeup a day or two following treatment.
