Skin rejuvenation with autologous cells is a revolutionary treatment due to the fact that it stimulates the body's ability to regenerate and heal itself, thus leading to the formation of a more compact, firmer, younger skin tissue. The procedure consists of collecting venous blood, which, by centrifugation, leads to the separation of plasma with an elevated platelet concentration, a growth factor involved in the stimulation and formation of new collagen fibers. The obtained plasma is then activated and reinjected intradermally with a very fine needle.
It is a new approach that meets the needs of patients seeking a natural, safe method for skin rejuvenation, that uses autologous (from one's own body) cells.
This method is revolutionary in the sense that the stimulation of resident stem cells is done by growth factors released by the platelets introduced into the dermis following the injection of activated plasma. Scientific studies support the use of one’s own plasma for the augmentation and regeneration of hard and soft tissues, as the source of platelet concentrate present in blood. In addition to their role in blood clotting, platelets also release growth factors involved in tissue self-repair, which allows the body to heal more quickly and efficiently.
Moreover, because autologous plasma is used, there is no risk of disease transmission, anaphylaxis or neoplasia. The functions of the released growth factors can be seen in: the increase of collagen production, the recruitment of other cells at the injection site, the initiation of angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), the induction of cell differentiation, bone mineralization, the formation of extracellular matrix.
