What gives the body the natural ability to be able to heal itself? Can that healing ability be used for something else? The use of the body’s inherent growth factors for cosmetic purposes is one of the most underrated advancements in medical cosmetics.
This post gives you all the beneficial details about natural growth factor injections offered by Aion Aesthetics. We will discuss its desirable results, advantages over other treatments, and more.
What are Natural Growth Factors?
The blood carries oxygen, nutrients, red blood cells, and white blood cells throughout the body. It also carries growth factors known as platelets. These growth factors are responsible for repairing the body when injuries occur.
Getting a concentration of these natural growth factors and putting them in strategic places can expedite the healing of serious injuries. It can accelerate the repair of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
However, we can also use natural growth factors to reverse the effects of time on the skin. Natural growth factors can help minimize the appearance of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, worn and dull skin, and sagging skin. The advantages of natural growth factor injections in medical aesthetics include:
- Smoother skin texture
- More vibrant skin
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved elasticity and firmness of the skin
- Minimized scarring and stretch marks
- Tightened pores
- Evened skin tone and reduced hyperpigmentation
The Benefits of Natural Growth Factor Injections
Let’s discuss how natural growth factor injections achieve their aesthetic benefits.
The Benefits Occur Because of Collagen and Elastin
The natural growth factor injection restores the skin to its youth. Medical science discovered that growth factors expedite the healing process, but growth factors also have uses outside of healing. If the skin is undamaged and a high concentration of growth factors gets into it, then the skin will improve in appearance.
A significant part of the skin’s healing process is the production of collagen and elastin, two of the most important proteins that build the skin. Collagen is the fundamental building block of the skin, composing as much as 70% of the dermis, the middle layer of the skin. Collagen is known to form the skin’s structure, keeping it tight and smooth.
Meanwhile, elastin is the protein that ensures the elasticity of the skin. It ensures that the skin returns to its usual shape.
A natural growth factor injection will trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Together, these two proteins restore the skin’s youthful qualities. They will improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
For example, there are two major causes of fine lines and wrinkles; one of those causes is the decrease in collagen supply as we age. But because natural growth factors initiate a higher collagen production rate, they will help prevent and even reduce existing fine lines and wrinkles.
Erased Scars and Stretch Marks
Scars and stretch marks form when the skin tries to repair itself too quickly. When the skin gets damaged, the body releases the two all-important proteins, collagen, and elastin, to rebuild the broken skin. But the problem is that those two proteins will try to repair the damage too quickly to get the skin back to its condition before the injury.
Instead of laying the foundation for smooth and flawless skin, the two proteins will patch the damage and create scars or stretch marks. Injecting natural growth factors at areas riddled with scars or stretch marks will help restore the skin to its former glory.
Evened Skin Tone
Hyperpigmentation occurs because of many contributing factors, including acne scars or sun damage. But as we already discussed, natural growth factors repair the skin from damage. As a side effect of repairing various injuries to the skin, natural growth factors also help even skin tone.
The Advantages of Natural Growth Factor Injections
There are a lot of advantages to getting natural growth factor injections. These advantages include:
- Can treat practically any area
- Quick results
- Long-lasting results
- Minimal side effects
Natural Growth Factor Injection Can Treat Practically Any Area
Since the treatment uses platelet-rich plasma, a naturally-occurring substance, it is compatible with any area of the body. The treatment can address all areas that are susceptible to skin imperfection.
It can treat facial acne, scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, coarse skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and more.
The Treatment Produces Quick Results
It might take a few days for the natural growth factors to do their magic. However, you will see noticeable results within two to six weeks after the injection. The use of natural growth factors is proven to be more effective at treating certain skin problems than other cosmetic treatments.
Aside from producing quick results, you can also expect growth factors to maintain their effects for several months. Generally, the results of a growth factor injection can last between nine to eighteen months, depending on several factors. When the effects of the treatment begin fading, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to prolong the desired enhancements.
Minimal Side Effects
Other aesthetic treatments have several side effects associated with them. But with natural growth factor injections, you can only expect four potential mild and temporary side effects. These side effects are swelling, redness, bruising, and soreness.
Experiencing these side effects is no cause for concern. They are only natural and will not impede the results of the treatment whatsoever.
You can take action to minimize these side effects. Avoiding certain supplements and dietary items such as omega-3, alcohol, garlic, aspirin, and more will help reduce potential bruising. These supplements and foods often cause blood thinning and slow down blood clotting, making bruising more severe.
