Platelet-Rich-Plasma: Utilising your own cells to stimulate the body’s natural regenerative mechanisms….
Platelets are cells in your blood that respond when a blood vessel is damaged. They also play an important role in healing by releasing growth factors and stimulating a cascade of processes that lead to tissue repair.
Platelets also assist in stimulating mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the skin to change from resting to active phase. The MSCs will form new tissue such as collagen, elastin, muscle, nerves, blood vessels etc., assisting to restore the structure of your skin.
Introducing Emcyte PurePRP®
At The Skin Clinic Fremantle, we are proud to offer the GOLD STANDARD in platelet rich plasma. PurePRP® by Emcyte is a rejuvenation therapy that concentrates the cells found in your own blood to create anti-ageing treatments that stimulate regeneration in your skin. In comparison tests, PurePRP® has been continuously outperforms all other PRP concentrating systems in performance and clinical outcomes.
The right cells at the right concentration
To deliver effective rejuvenation, the platelets must be concentrated to around 5-9 times the baseline level found in your blood. As well as concentrating the platelets, the processing system must remove red blood cells and make sure that nutrients such as amino acids, electrolytes and saccharides are present in the right amounts.
White blood cells such as neutrophils and monocytes also play important roles in skin rejuvenation treatments. Neutrophils work to remove damaged tissue in preparation for new tissue generation. Monocytes are white blood cells that convert into two types of macrophages in skin tissue (M1 & M2). M1 macrophages will remove debris, pathogens, bacteria and fibrotic tissue, allowing for a new layer of healthy collagen and elastin. M2 macrophages send messenger chemicals to stimulate fibroblasts to repair and regenerate the skin.
The unique separation system of Emcyte PurePRP delivers better cell extraction than earlier generation “test-tube” style PRP systems, including:
- The highest recovery of platelets
- The lowest levels of red blood cells
- The highest levels of monocytes
