Growth Factor Sydney

Natural, non-surgical treatments such as Growth Factor are fast becoming the preferred choice for men and women who want to improve the appearance of their skin without the need for surgery or foreign substances.

Growth Factor Sydney

Growth Factor is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses the natural proteins in your body to slow the ageing process. To improve skin texture and elasticity, reduce pores and promote a more youthful complexion, you’re going to need more than topical skin care products. As we age, it’s natural for skin cell regeneration and collagen production to slow down but advancements in cosmetic medicine are making it possible to achieve healthier, suppler skin.

What concerns can Growth Factor help to address and what patients need to know.

It’s important to remember that every individual is unique and so too are their needs and desired outcomes for cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering a procedure, it’s essential to have a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. They can help you understand whether you’re a suitable candidate and what you can realistically expect from the surgery. The information provided here is meant to help guide you, but it’s not a replacement for professional medical advice. Always organise a consultation for personalised advice.

If you are concerned about the way you look or are thinking about cosmetic surgery for confidence reasons, there are alternatives. Talking to a counsellor or psychologist may help you overcome your concerns about your appearance.

Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Skin Plumping: Growth Factor treatment can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while plumping the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Skin Texture and Pigmentation Improvement: The treatment contributes to pore tightening and improved appearance of uneven skin pigmentation, resulting in refined skin texture and even skin tone.
Scar Reduction and Hair Growth Stimulation: The visibility of acne and surgical scars can be reduced using this treatment. It also aids in stimulating and promoting hair growth for patients struggling with hair loss.
Non-Surgical Approach for Overall Rejuvenation: Growth Factor provides a non-surgical, minimally invasive option for overall skin and hair rejuvenation.
Multiple Sessions for Desired Outcome: To achieve the optimal results, most patients will require 4 treatments every 7 to 10 days. Top-up treatments once or twice a year are also recommended to maintain the results.
Suitable for All Skin Types: Growth Factor treatments can benefit all skin types and tones, offering versatility in its application.
Mild Side Effects: After treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, redness, and occasionally bruising for 2 to 4 days, which can typically be concealed with makeup.
Wide Range of Treatment Areas: In addition to the face, Growth Factor treatments can be used for addressing skin concerns on the neck, décolletage, and hands, broadening the scope of its application.

What to expect

To create your unique Growth Factor formula, a few small samples of your blood will need to be withdrawn and incubated for 6 – 9 hours using a specialised scientific technique.

Following the incubation period, the plasma will be separated from the red blood cells, leaving you with a unique formula that is filled with growth factors and cytokines. This formula can be used immediately or stored for future treatments.

If you are ready to administer the Growth Factor formula, the plasma will be added to a microneedling device which will penetrate the deeper layers of your skin, ensuring these powerful growth factors can get to work at a deep level. Since all of the ingredients in your Growth Factor formula are naturally found in your body, there is no risk of an allergic reaction.

Following a Growth Factor treatment, your skin’s natural regeneration and repair process will be activated and collagen production will increase, which will gradually rejuvenate your skin.

Growth Factor treatment general risks and complications may include:

Injection site reactions: Some patients may experience swelling, redness, tenderness, bruising or slight discomfort at the site of the injections. These are generally mild and temporary.
Infection: As with any procedure involving skin penetration, there is a risk of infection, although it is minimal due to the sterile technique used and the fact that your own blood products are being used.
Allergic reactions: Very rarely, patients may have an allergic reaction to the anticoagulant used in the blood collection tube.
Inconsistent results: Everyone’s body is different and results may vary from person to person. Not everyone will see the same level of improvement and some people may need additional treatments to achieve their desired results.
Scarring: Though extremely rare in cosmetic injections, there is always a risk of scarring from any procedure that penetrates the skin.
Temporary skin discoloration: There may be temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening) or hypopigmentation (lightening) of the treated area.
Unsatisfactory results: The treatment may not achieve the desired improvement in skin tone, texture, or appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Possible transmission of disease: Even though Growth Factor treatment uses your own blood, there's a theoretical risk of disease transmission if the clinic does not follow correct sterilisation procedures.

How much does Growth Factor Sydney cost?

Your personalised quote will be prepared following an in-depth evaluation by our expert surgeon. This includes a thorough assessment of your individual needs, detailed explanation of the procedure, and a tailored approach to best achieve the desired outcomes. The quote considers various elements including surgical supplies, hospital requirements, and the specifics of the surgery itself.

Potential rebates might be available if the procedure is deemed medically necessary by relevant health authorities. Conditions for this include providing evidence supporting the medical necessity of the surgery and a referral from a healthcare professional. Your private health insurance may also provide coverage, so it’s essential to discuss this with your provider.


After your first Growth Factor treatment you can expect to see improvements after a couple of weeks. While results vary, most patients see the best results after they have 4 treatments every 5 to 10 days. For optimum results, we suggest you have top-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
After your Growth Factor treatment, your skin may be red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days. Some patients may experience mild swelling and sometimes bruising. It is important to stay hydrated and leave your skin make-up free for at least 12 hours post-treatment. To minimise any swelling or bruising, avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
Factor4 and PRP are considered similar, however, there are some differences. Both begin with blood extraction and involve separating the liquid to concentrate the healing factors. However, PRP is often activated by the addition of certain liquids, such as thrombin or calcium chloride. Growth Factor uses only the compounds that came from your own blood.When you undergo PRP therapy, blood samples are usually taken each time you arrive for treatment. Although extracting blood is fairly painless, many people would prefer to limit the procedure if possible.Finally, Factor4 can produce four times as many growth factors as PRP treatments. The additional growth factors may deliver results more effectively and quickly than PRP.
