The Growth Factors or Protein Rich Plasma are soluble protein substances contained within the platelets, capable of stimulating other cells, so that they begin to form a great variety of processes, such as forming new tissue, healing, repairing tissues, cure, in bones, ligaments, skin….
These factors bind specifically to receptors on the cell surface where they must act. They are a chemical messenger capable to induce, stimulate, and encourage their multiplication in case of injury and repair the specific tissue in each case. The adult stem cells need this stimulation of the growth factors to be able to produce specific substances and cells of the tissue that they must form.
The procedure to extract these factors is simple, safe, painless and without anesthesia. A small amount of blood is extracted as for an analytical, in order to obtain the necessary platelet, we perform a specific procedure with the blood, and once we obtain the RICH PLASMA IN GROWTH FACTORS, we inject it by means of some needles very thin in the area to be treated.
It has no side effect because it is an autologous implant, therefore there are no possible allergic reactions. Once the application is finished, ice and magnetic fields are administered ''in situ''. The patient can go home, where ice will be applied for a couple of days.
When we use the Growth Factors:
• In fracture consolidation.
• Bone grafts.
• Healing delay.
• Tendinous, muscular injuries….
• Facial rejuvenation.
Helping in each case to facilitate the recovery of the problem, repairing the injury and decreasing inflammation and pain.
