As we age the natural and biological process of the body cause changes on the surface of the skin in the form of ageing issues like wrinkles, folds, fine lines, laugh lines, sagging skin, creepy skin. Skin loses its strength to protect itself from damage as it becomes thin and loses its elasticity and volume.
The results from a combination of a gradual decline in skin function over time and cumulative damage caused by factors like pollution , sun exposure, smoking, high stress levels, exposure to chemicals, and notably, ultraviolet (UVB) radiation. These factors lead to degeneration of collagen in skin resulting in the impairment of the structural integrity of the skin causing the skin to wrinkle. Ageing is law of nature. With advancements of science and technology, there are few measures which allow us to reverse or reduce the signs of ageing face. This may lead to immense psychological benefits enhancing the personal image and social interaction.
The Autologous Growth Factors (AGF) therapy is the latest & next generation measure, which utilizes the body’s inherent natural powers and capacity for regulation and self-healing resulting in the ultimate biological skin rejuvenation.
It’s an acronym for Growth Factor Concentrate, a pure, highly safe, highly concentrated growth factor preparation engineered from person’s own blood fir superior results in facial rejuvenation. Various growth factors thus harvested is placed in to own skin, thus delivering own growth factors; stimulating skin layers and its subsequent regeneration and repair.
Any individual who wishes to have rejuvenated face is the best candidate. AGF therapy is equally effective for both male & females. AGF therapy can be also ideal for the person who does not want any synthetic filler or any synthetic chemicals/toxins applied to their skin. AGF therapy could be used to enhance laser procedures and along with derma-needling too for faster and improved healing.
Acne scars are marks left behind after acne breakouts heal. Acne is a common skin condition that usually starts at puberty. It develops because of the pilosebaceous unit (the hair follicle and accompanying sebaceous gland) engorging with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria.
Inflammation of the follicles (or pores) leads to a disruption in the follicle wall. Deeper lesions develop when there is a break in the wall of the pore, triggering the discharge of infected material in to the adjacent skin. The natural tendency of the skin is to heal on its own. It attempts to produce new collagen fibers to repair the lesions. The process of repair may not always be smooth, which leads to the formation of acne scars. An estimated 95% of global population experiences acne during teenage years and end up getting scars on face, forehead, nose, chest and back. As scars are common skin complain, it requires medical attention. Acne scare usually lead to reduced quality of life and may lead to psychosocial implications. Person may experience anxiety, shame and lack of confidence, embarrassment, stress and impaired social contact.
There are many treatments available for acne scars which can improve and soften the appearance of the scarring, ranging from topical applications to intradermal injections to surgical procedures. A combination of treatments may also require in some cases. The AGF therapy is a next generation therapy, which utilizes the body’s inherent natural powers and capacity for tissue regeneration, self-healing and repair. AGF could be used in the management of acne scars and it can be combined with ablative lasers, micro-needling, subcision, scar excision and other treatment modalities for faster and improved healing.
High concentration of various growth factors present in AGF like TGFß, FGF, VEGF, PDGF, EGF, IGF have important roles in healing, including new natural collagen induction and formation of new skin cells and blood vessels. It triggers the enhanced natural healing process of the body, yielding a smoother appearance of the scars. Its results are apparent in all the skin types. Since it is derived from the patient’s own blood, is absolutely safe to administer without any long term side-effects.
