What is GFC Hair Treatment?

GFC stands for Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy. It is a highly safe, dedicated, and advanced treatment that uses growth factors extracted from the patient’s blood to treat hair loss. The treatment involves injecting the growth factors superficially into the scalp, where they reach the hair roots. 

GFC utilizes the healing abilities of the blood to repair damaged hair follicles. Once these damaged follicles start regenerating, they regain the ability to grow new hair which addresses the hair loss and thinning problem of the patient. Typically, 2 to 6 sessions are required of this non-invasive hair regeneration therapy are required to get the best results and accelerate hair growth.

Who is a Good Candidate for GFC Hair Treatment?

The growth factor concentrate treatment is suitable for patients who experience hair problems due to hormonal imbalance, such as PCOS, thyroid issues, androgenic alopecia, and who have had chemotherapy. 

The GFC Hair Treatment responds to different conditions in slightly different ways. For instance, the patients dealing with androgenic alopecia experienced 83% positive results from the treatment. The hair regrowth rate in PCOS patients was also above 80%. GFC treatment delivers superior results to PRP and other non-surgical hair loss treatments. 

Note- GFC hair treatment is also helpful in addressing hair thinning issues in children.

What Happens in GFC Hair Treatment?

The process of GFC Hair Treatment is carried out in the steps below- 

Step 1- Collection of Blood 

The process starts with taking around 15 to 16 ml of peripheral blood. The blood is then equally distributed into 4 tubes. 

Step 2- Platelet Activation & Release of Growth Factors 

To activate the platelets, the blood is gently mixed by inverting the tube 6 to 10 times. Then the blood is allowed to stand for approximately 30 minutes. As the platelet activates, the growth factors are released from the blood plasma. 

Step 3- Separation of GFC 

To separate the growth factors from the blood plasma, the tubes are placed in a centrifuge, and it is spun at 3400 rpm for 10 minutes. This completely separates the various components of the blood, including RBCs, WBCs, plasma, and other blood cells. 

Step 4- GFC Collection 

Once the centrifuge has done its job, the growth factor concentrate will sit separately in the tube. Then a syringe is used to collect the GFC. The syringe is used for this to allow maximum recovery of the GFC. Around 7 to 8 ml of injectable GFC is retrieved from the sample. 

Step 5- Usage of GFC

As the GFC is ready for use, the scalp is numbed using local anesthesia. Then the concentrated growth factor solution is injected into the scalp using microinjections. 

Multiple sessions of GFC Hair Treatment are required to see visible results. The sessions will take place with a gap of at least one month. After 2-3 sessions, the patient will start noticing the reduced hair fall and improvement in hair volume and thickness.

What are the Different Growth Factors Used for the Therapy?

Various growth factors are stored in the blood, all of which work together to regenerate and repair the damaged tissues. Each growth factor plays a different role in treating hair problems. The different types of hair growth factors are-

  • Platelet-derived Growth Factor (PDGF)- This growth factor helps to increase hair growth and works as a stimulant for vascularization and angiogenesis. It also promotes mitogenesis (increases the number of cells) of mesenchymal stem cells and endothelial cells. The fibroblasts are also migrated to promote cell repair and hair growth. 
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)- These growth factors plays an important role in the anagen phase of hair growth and regulates perifollicular angiogenesis. It is also responsible for increasing the vessel size during the anagen phase to make the hair growth process smoother. 
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)– This growth factor promotes hair cell proliferation and generation by stimulating the mesenchymal and epithelial cells. It also stimulates angiogenesis, i.e., the formation of new blood vessels, which helps in tissue healing. 
  • Insulin-like Growth Factor- 1 (IGF-1)-  This growth factor is a physiologic regulator of the hair growth cycle. It helps to prevent the hair follicles from entering the catagen phase, prolonging the hair cycle. 

All of these growth factors are extracted from the platelet at high concentrations and stored in injections to be used on the scalp to prevent hair loss.

How to Prepare for GFC Hair Treatment?

As the GFC Hair Treatment is non-invasive, extensive preparations are usually not required for it. Still, the patient might receive the following instructions to ensure that there are no complications associated with the procedure. 

  • Do not perform heavy exercise or exhausting physical activities a day before the GFC Hair Treatment. 
  • Increase the water intake to keep the body hydrated. 
  • Improve eating habits and take a healthy and balanced diet. 
  • Avoid eating junk food as much as possible. 
  • Shampoo and condition hair on the day of the procedure. If the scalp is oily and dirty, it can cause infection. 
  • Avoid coloring hair at least a week before the procedure. 
  • Stop drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes as they can dehydrate the body and impair healing abilities. 
  • Stop using blood thinning medications as they can make it difficult to get growth factor concentrate from the blood.

Benefits of GFC Hair Therapy

GFC hair treatment is the next-generation solution for hair thinning and hair loss problems. It has the following benefits- 

  • The treatment is highly effective and promotes natural and enhanced regeneration of the hair follicles. 
  • It is 100% safe, and there are minimal chances that the patient will experience side effects from the treatment. 
  • As RBCs and WBCs are separated from the growth factor concentrate, the chances of pain and inflammation are reduced significantly. 
  • With GFC, fewer sessions are required to get optimal results. 
  • It also strengthens the hair follicles and prevents them from entering the catagen phase earlier than usual. 


How long does the GFC Hair Treatment take?

Typically, the GFC Hair Treatment takes around 1 hour or so. Most of the time is spent waiting for the centrifuge to separate the growth factors from the blood. The actual procedure of injecting the concentrated growth factor solution only takes around 30 minutes.

How much does GFC Hair Treatment cost in India?

The GFC Hair Treatment cost in India ranges from Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 10,000 approximately. The treatment expense might vary for each patient depending on the number of sessions required, the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesia fee, etc.

When will I see the final results of the GFC Hair Treatment?

You will be able to see the final results of GFC hair treatment within 4 to 5 months. The actual timeline for hair growth will vary for each patient, depending on his/her individual healing abilities.

Is GFC Hair Treatment better than PRP?

Various studies have suggested that GFC Hair Treatment yields better results than PRP treatment. The concentrated solution of growth factors closely targets the hair follicles and improves hair growth in fewer sessions than PRP treatment.

How many sessions of GFC treatment are needed?

Typically, 4 to 6 sessions are enough for most patients. However, depending on the severity of hair thinning and loss, the number of sessions required for each patient will also vary.
