GFC Therapy

What is Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC)?

Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC) Therapy is a hair loss treatment derived from a person’s own blood that contains a high concentration of growth factors that enhance hair regrowth. Growth factors are proteins that play a critical role in cell growth, tissue repair, and wound healing. Growth factor concentrate (GFC) therapy involves injecting a solution containing growth factors and other nutrients directly into the scalp to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp and promoting the activity of hair follicles.

  • GFC Is best therapy for people suffering from androgenic alopecia, hair loss, reduced hair volume, post hair transplant
  • It is non-invasive therapy without side effects as there is no RBC’s being injected
  • This gives faster and better results, desired result can be seen in 3-6 sessions and maintenance session in every 3 months can be done
  • Platelets mediate effects through degranulation, in which platelet-derived GF (PDGF), transforming GF-β1 (TGF-β1), vascular endothelial GF (VEGF), basic fibroblastic GF (bFGF), and epidermal GF (EGF) are released from alpha granules
  • The growth factors in GFC offer consistent results without any side effects.

How GFC works:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) stimulates mesenchymal stem cells and activates hair growth.
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) promoting the growth of new hair follicles and stimulating the activity of existing follicles
  • Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 promotes hair growth and helps maintain hair follicle health.
  • Epidermal Growth Factor also promotes the production of blood vessels around the hair root, which increases hair thickness.


  • Blood collection: Collect 6ml blood each in 2 vacutainers provided in GFC kit
  • Platelet activation: gently invert the tube for 10 times and keep it upright for 30 mins
  • GFC separation: centrifuge the vacutainers for 10 mins
  • GFC collection: collect the upper layer of GFC from vacutainer
  • GFC injection: pure, acellular, autologous growth factors are then injected on scalp


  • Reduces hairfall
  • Increases hair volume
  • Strengthens hair shaft
  • Improves hair thickness
  • Stimulates hair growth

Precautions after GFC therapy:

  • You can resume your daily activity soon after the treatment.
  • You may shower or shampoo next day onwards.
