Growth Factor Treatments!

Calgary Growth Factor Treatments

Growth factors can be thought of as the skin’s personal cheerleaders, supporting its natural rejuvenation process. These naturally occurring proteins play a crucial role in regulating cellular activities, from promoting growth and renewal to guiding transformation. They act as communicators with cells, prompting them to increase the production of collagen and elastin. This leads to enhanced skin repair and renewal that outpaces many other treatments. When combined with other skincare treatments, growth factors elevate the results, improving skin texture and tone and reducing the appearance of fine lines. They are especially effective in addressing a variety of skin issues, including acne, sun damage, discoloration, melasma, rosacea, and visible signs of aging. Whether applied topically or introduced via injections, regular use of growth factors results in firmer, younger-looking skin that radiates both resilience and vitality. After cosmetic procedures, growth factors can also speed up the healing process. These factors can be sourced from various places, such as blood (as in vampire facials) or plants, as found in products like EXO|E exosomes.

Growth Factor Treatment Options

Microneedling Exosome Therapy

Not to toot our own horn, but we have outdone ourselves with this new cutting-edge plant-based technology! EXO|E Revitalizing Complex is a complete and perfectly formulated set of active natural plant cell factors. These tiny powerhouses derived from plant cells are like the beauty messengers of the cellular world. They send messages of regeneration from cell to cell. Because of their amazing capacity to send signals at a cellular level to boost repair, exosomes drastically improve the appearance of many concerns. With Microneedling, the microchannels resulting from the tiny pricks can carry the exosome serum, which is also packed with growth factors, peptides, amino acids, proteins, minerals and vitamins, deep into the skin to deliver healing nutrients to the skin.


An Exosome facial is an ideal and natural treatment to reduce and reverse signs of aging, sunspots, rosacea, acne scarring, dark circles under the eyes, hollowed face and skin integrity issues. It also treats stretch marks and hair loss. It doesn’t just temporarily mask the signs of aging; it promotes long-lasting cell rejuvenation. It’s like hitting the reset button on your skin. This treatment produces rapid rejuvenation results unlike any other growth factor therapy out there. NO JOKE! The results start to show immediately and are truly astonishing! This is why we are so excited about this. You will receive a 5-day pre-treatment detox exosome serum kit as well as a 5-day post-treatment repair exosome serum kit.

Microneedling Vampire Facial

Do not mistake this treatment for a bad Halloween costume! The idea of a microneedling vampire facial is that the growth factors in your blood will work their magic, stimulating collagen production, reducing wrinkles, and giving your skin that youthful glow. You might even catch a glimpse of your reflection and think, “Wow, I look immortal!” This growth factor facial is an add-on to your traditional Microneedling facial. Our qualified team will draw your blood (don’t worry, we leave some in you), spin it in a centrifuge machine which separates it into distinct layers, and take out the necessary serum containing high concentrations of growth factors, and apply them to your face during your Microneedling treatment. Microneedling creates tiny micro channels to enhance the penetration of the serum. Using your own blood is a very effective way to restore and repair your skin in a speedier fashion than traditional Microneedling. So, if you’re up for a skincare adventure and don’t mind a little blood, the vampire facial might just be your ticket to a frightfully fabulous complexion. Just remember to leave the garlic and wooden stakes at home!

Advanced Growth Factor Injections

Re-injecting your growth factor after separating it from your blood is like a VIP party for your body! We draw a small sample of your blood, spin it around in a special centrifuge to separate the platelets. We then mix it with special added growth factors and platelet activating solution and inject the growth factor mixture back into your body to help rejuvenate your skin and help it bounce back to its youthfulness. It is used to help with androgenic alopecia, skin rejuvenation of texture and elasticity, along with enhanced skin tightening and lightening skin tone, and the reduction of melasma and acne scars. This type of injection takes it up a notch. It’s like a red-carpet event for your face.

Growth Factor Treatments FAQs

Exosomes are generated by all cells, and are responsible for relaying signals from one group of cells to another. Exosomes work as messengers between cells, transmitting important information that affects regeneration. They’re like the motivational speakers of the skincare universe, encouraging your cells to produce more collagen, elastin, and all the good stuff that keeps your skin plump and firm. This makes exosomes an important part of anti-aging therapy. As we age, skin cells lessen their ability to regenerate. Exosomes slow the aging process by encouraging skin regeneration on a cellular level. This is why exosome rejuvenation therapy is so effective when applied back onto the skin.

Dot Calm’s EXO|E treatment kit has a concentrated dose of plant-based factors, anti-inflammatory factors, VegF and thousands of additional factors per application.

This specific Exosome facial treatment:

• Pairs best with Microneedling
• Has a blend that signals the skin to stop detrimental inflammation
• Up to a 3X faster recovery with Microneedling treatments
• 10X stimulation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in one treatment
• Offers 20X the amount of cell signaling

We recommend 2-3 Microneedling Exosome treatments to start getting optimal results with a yearly follow-up.

Wow, someone is certainly impatient, aren’t we? It takes one to know one because SO ARE WE! We are seeing great results as early as 14 days after initial treatment. Results will continue to improve for months to come. If this isn’t fast enough for you, then we suggest returning to your regularly scheduled programming of using over filtered pictures cus they’re ain’t no pleasing you.  <wink>

The Vampire Facial isn’t an instant transformation. You will not walk out of the clinic with a vampire fan club at your doorstep. It takes time for the magic to happen. Typically, you’ll start noticing some subtle changes in your skin within a few weeks to a couple of months. Maybe the fine lines will look a bit less prominent, or your complexion will have a slightly more youthful radiance. Of course, each person’s skin is unique, so the timeline can vary. Some lucky people might see results sooner, while others might have to be patient for a bit longer. Just think of it as a suspenseful plot twist in your skincare journey.

It takes time to achieve eternal youth. You will need 3-5 treatments depending on areas of concern, with one session being performed about every four weeks.

The injections themselves might cause a slight pinch or discomfort, but nothing too drastic.

Results vary from person to person, but you might start noticing some improvements within a few weeks of the treatment. However, it’s important to remember that these treatments work their magic gradually, so don’t expect an overnight transformation. Just hang in there and let the platelets do their thing – good things come to those who wait!

Side effects are typically minimal and temporary. You might experience some mild redness, swelling and bruising. These typically go away after a few days.

The options are endless with this. Most choose to inject under the eyes, smile lines, cheeks and jaw. If you are looking for a more all over treatment, we would suggest pairing with a Vampire Facial.
