Growth Factor (Vampire Facial)
What is Growth Factor?
Growth Factor is the world’s most advanced collagen stimulating skin rejuvenation treatment, developed right here in Australia.
It’s a form of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, which became instantly popular due to the collagen stimulating properties of plasma enriched with platelets. We harvest blood from your own body which is then taken through an incubator and centrifuge to draw out your very own plasma for enhancing fresh-faced, natural beauty.
What Can Growth Factor Treat?
Growth Factor can treat a wide range of skin conditions:
- Uneven skin tone

- Dark under eye circles

- Mildly sagging skin

Who Can Do Growth Factor?
There is no minimum age when you can do Growth Factor, and the therapy is suitable for all skin types.
Make sure that you let your therapist know of any medications that you are taking prior to treatment.
What Does Growth Factor Treatment Involve?
The Growth Factor treatment itself will take around one and a half hours
You will need to come in to have your blood taken a least one day prior to undergoing Growth Factor therapy. We extract around 30-40ml of blood per treatment, which is less than if you have ever given blood.
Before treatment we apply a numbing agent to the skin, so that the Growth Factor injections are completely painless. We then inject Growth Factor into the desired rejuvenation areas.
How does my blood transform into Growth Factor?
Your blood incubates for 6 to 9 hours, during which time the different components of your blood separate. The growth factors that separate out, are then spun in a centrifuge and filtered, resulting in a four times more concentrated serum.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
This all depends on the quality of your skin at present. While the therapy can be used as a one time treatment, most people will see the best results from Growth Factor after 4 sessions. You should wait for 1 – 2 weeks between each Growth Factor treatment session.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
You’ll be able to see results from each session of Growth Factor at around 4 weeks out from your treatment. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 18 months
Are There Any Side Effects Of Undergoing Growth Factor?
You may experience some redness to the skin for 12-24 hours, occasionally there can sometimes be very minimal swelling also.
Is Growth Factor Safe?
Because Growth Factor is harvested from your own blood, it makes the treatment a 100% safe and natural alternative to other anti-aging therapies.
How Long Does Growth Factor Treatment Last?
This all depends person to person, but generally the results of Growth Factor will last around 18 months, after which time you can come back into the clinic for a yearly top up.
How Much Does Growth Factor Cost?
Depending on the extent of the area to be treated, as well as the number of sessions required for treatment, costs can vary.
