COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
Fractionated Collagen Induction Therapy – is minimally invasive technology that employs graded disruption of the epidermis and upper dermis with multiple fine needles. The created micro-wounds start the cascade of skin regeneration and release of multiple growth factors. The procedure is well tolerated and can be used in patients with any type of skin with minimum downtime. Multiple published research papers showed its efficacy in the management of acne and other scars, skin rejuvenation, melasma, alopecia, hyperhidrosis, photodamage, and topical drug delivery.
SECOND GENERATION PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Our own body has the unique capabilities to regenerate and restore the function itself. Thus, the blood contains platelets or thrombocytes which are ones of the first blood cells attracted to the injury site and contains multiple growth factors that help to heal the body. PRP contains high concentration of various biologically active growth-factors including: Epidermal growth factor (EGF), Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), Transforming growth-factor-beta TGF-b), Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2), Insulin-like growth factor (IGF). The PRP technology allows to separate red blood cells and obtain the enriched with platelets, growth factors and other essential cytokines concentrate. The injection of PRP was initially used in Orthopaedic Surgery for treatment of tendon and muscle injuries and arthritis. For the last decade the PRP technology started to play significant role in the Dermatological treatment as well.
There is scientific evidence of using PRP in the following skin conditions:
