GFC is an abbreviation of Growth Factor Concentrate. It is a pure, highly safe preparation of natural growth factors that are derived from the patient’s blood growth factors.

GFC therapy is an innovative hair growth and hair loss treatment in Hyderabad used by hair fall specialists at Eternelle Aesthetics to increase hair thickness and density in patients who have started losing hair and whose scalp has become more visible through their hair. It is a popular, scientifically proven therapy for reducing hair fall in 90% of cases of female pattern hair loss.

What growth factors does GFC contain?

GFC has a variety of natural growth factors, including:

  • PDGF (P-Derived Growth Factor): It stimulates new blood vessel formation and vascularization while even boosting hair growth. In addition, it helps in the proliferation and chemotaxis of fibroblasts and the mitogenesis of endothelium and mesenchymal stem cells.
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): It increases the mitogenesis of mesenchymal and epithelial cells and encourages the regeneration and proliferation of hair cells. Moreover, it simultaneously promotes angiogenesis.
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): It is expressed in dermal papilla cells during the active growth phase of a hair growth cycle. It is responsible for encouraging perifollicular angiogenesis in hair. Furthermore, it increases the size of the perifollicular vessels.
  • I-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1):  It induces angiogenesis, encourages hair growth of the entire scalp, and sustains the hair growth.

How is GFC hair treatment performed?

Just 5 steps and the GFC hair treatment session is over.

Step 1 (Blood collection): The patient’s peripheral blood is withdrawn from the left arm using a sterile syringe and equally transferred into 4 GFC tubes.

Step 2 (Activation of Blood growth factors): The patient’s blood is gently mixed by inverting the GFC tubes 6 to 10 times. After mixing the tubes are left undisturbed in a vertical position for around half an hour. At the end of this step, the blood growth factor get activated to release the natural growth factors.

Step 3 (Separation of GFC): Next, the four GFC tubes are centrifuged for 10 minutes at 3,400 rpm. Centrifugation results in separation of all the blood cells from pure growth factors.

Step 4 (Gathering of GFC): The growth factors are concentrated just under the GFC tube cap. They are collected using a sterile syringe by inserting the needle just beneath the tube’s cap. The GFC output can be of varying colour, notably yellow, orange, yellowish brown, and reddish.

Step 5 (Application of GFC): The gathered GFC is now ready to be injected into the target areas of the scalp.
