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 natural aging of your skin is due to an imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen. By promoting the process of natural tissue regeneration, mesotherapy injections of PRP improve skin quality and smoothes fine lines of the face, décolleté and hands.
PRP injections in the scalp stimulate bulb cells at base of the hair and the surrounding microcirculation. Vitality, color and brightness of your hair are enhanced; their loss is slowed and their growth is activated.
The analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of PRP will also help to fight the pain and significantly improve the speed of wound healing after laser or chemical peel treatments.
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.
