What is PGF?

Plasma Growth Factors (PGF) is a cutting-edge treatment that’s free from chemicals and other irritants. It’s highly effective for regenerating new cell growth.
With PRP, the medical team at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness harnesses the power of platelets, rich in growth factors, from your own blood to help you achieve anti-aging effects without surgery, pain, or downtime.

What is PGF used for?

The practitioners at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness use PGF for facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, and O-Shots® to enhance sexual function. It helps:

  • Increase hair growth
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve your complexion
  • Diminish acne scars
  • Plump sagging skin
  • Reduce deep facial creases
  • Restore a youthful appearance
  • Improve sexual sensation and function
  • Decrease urinary incontinence
  • Reduce symptoms of vaginal atrophy including loss of sensation, urinary incontinence, and vaginal dryness among others.

PGF encourages new cell growth to replace older, damaged cells. Platelets in PGF enhance your body’s natural healing abilities.

What should I expect during PGF treatment?

Before PGF treatment, your provider reviews your medical history and symptoms to let you know if PGF injections are right for you. If you’re a good candidate for the procedure, your practitioner takes a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the PGF.
We then inject the Plasma Growth Factors at strategic points just beneath your skin for facial rejuvenation.
If you desire hair restoration, your provider injects PRP into several areas of your scalp. To achieve vaginal rejuvenation, orgasm enhancement, or improvements in urinary incontinence with the O-shot, your doctor injects PGF into the vaginal area.
Your doctor numbs the area before your PGF injections to make the procedure comfortable. We let you know how often to schedule PRP injections to achieve optimal results, which last about 18 months or longer.
If you receive PGF as part of facial rejuvenation, your practitioner might recommend additional aesthetic treatments, such as microneedling or dermal fillers, to enhance your results.

What happens after the procedure?

There’s virtually no downtime after PGF treatment, so you can resume regular daily activities within 12-24 hours. If you receive the O-shot, your provider might ask you to abstain from sexual activity for the remainder of the day.
Don’t let thinning hair, urinary incontinence, and other signs and symptoms of aging hinder your quality of life or make you self-conscious. Call Thrive Med Spa & Wellness To learn more about PGF or schedule an appointment online today.

What happens after the procedure?

After each appointment, there’s no downtime so you can resume a normal everyday routine right away. You might experience temporary redness that soon subsides. Schedule your treatment about every month or so to maintain long-lasting results.
