What are Biological Growth Factors?

Biological growth factors have long been used to help speed recovery from injuries. It has regenerative properties that are very useful in helping the skin heal itself, allowing for increased collagen production, which in turn plumps and firms the skin. Collagen is essential for repairing the skin and keeping it elastic, and biological growth factors can help kick-start collagen production.

Biological growth factors is formed from the patient’s own blood, meaning that you don’t need to worry about an allergic reaction. The process involves taking a blood sample from the patient, then using a centrifuge to separate out the plasma. This plasma can then be used as a topical solution to help with any number of skin issues.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure in which tiny needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin, allowing topical solutions, such as biological growth factors, to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Microneedling is safe and effective, and a great way to smooth and brighten the skin. It also stimulates collagen production, creating micro-injuries that push the skin’s healing powers into high gear.
