How Do Platelets Stimulate Regeneration?

Platelets are cells in your blood that respond when a blood vessel is damaged.  In addition platelets play an important role in healing by releasing growth factors and stimulating a cascade of processes that lead to tissue repair.

Platelets also assist to stimulate Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in the skin to change from resting to active phase.  The MSCs will form new tissue such collagen, elastin, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, etc., thus assisting to restore the structure of your skin.

The Right Cells At The Right Concentration

To deliver effective rejuvenation the platelets must be concentrated to around five to nine times the baseline level found in your blood.  In addition, red blood cells must be removed and nutrients such as amino acids, electrolytes, saccharides, and other micro-nutrients must be present in the right amounts.

White blood cells such as neutrophils and monocytes also play important roles in skin rejuventation treatments.  Neutrophils assist in the removal of damaged tissue in preparation for new tissue regeneration.  Monocytes are white blood cells that convert into two types of macrophages in skin tissue (M1 or M2). M1 will remove debris, pathogens, bacteria and fibrotic tissue, allowing for a new layer of healthy collagen and elastin. M2 send messenger chemicals to stimulate fibroblasts to repair and regenerate the skin. 

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Typically an initial course of three treatments spaced over 6 to 12 weeks is recommended.  In order to counteract ongoing ageing of the skin a regular maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months will assist to maintain results.

Emcyte Pure-PRP® can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies such as Fractional Resurfacing, IPL, Skin Needling, and more. 

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

One of the advantages of Emcyte Pure PRP® is that sample collection, processing and treatment injection can occur in a single appointment.  Most treatments will typically  be completed in 30 to 60 minutes.  There is typically no down time, with mild swelling for a day or two.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Within a week of treatments many patients notice improved hydration in the skin.  Changes such as improved skin volume and structure generally occur within 30 days and improvements can continue for up to 90 days.
