Platelets are key factors in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms. They provide essential growth factors which are involved in stem cell migration, differential and proliferation. Additionally, platelets also stimulate fibroblasts and endothelial cells to induce new extracellular matrix deposition and neo-vascularization respectively.

Plasma contains many factors essential for cell survival including nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, growth factors (such as IGF and HGF) and proteins. Among the plasma proteins, themolecules vital for the coagulation process and for the fibrin

polymer formation will serve as a scaffold for cell migration and new tissue generation.

The eye area is a particular fragile region in which may appear bluish coloration due to a microcirculation disorder, sometimes associated with a darker area under the lower eyelid. Growth factors present in PRP stimulate the microcirculation around your eye, its brightness is improved and skin around the eyes recovers its tonicity.

Localized treatment by injecting a gel preparation of PRP (PRP remodeling) restores harmony and proportions in the volumes of the face in the below areas:

– Nasolabial folds

– Cheeks and jaws

– Periorbital areas

– Crow’s feet

– Area of the upper lip

– Nose and forehead

PRP injections are also an effective treatment of stretch marks, acne scars or hypertrophic scars.

Approximately 8-10 cc of blood will be collected from the patient to initiate the PRP preparation. Only 5 minutes is needed for spinning in the centrifuge to separate plasma and platelet sediment from the remaining cellular composition. The Regen BCT tube prepares 5-6 ml of PRP with a platelet recovery greater than 80% and a concentration factor of 1.6-fold.
