Bioactive Cellular Facial Regeneration
What is bioactive cellular facial regeneration?
Bioactive cellular facial regeneration is a facial treatment option that has grown in popularity as a natural alternative to Botox or facial surgery. The therapy uses bioactive cells, which are made up of a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and growth factors, to stimulate natural collagen formation and skin renewal to improve skin texture, elasticity and tone.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used for cosmetic facial rejuvenation is now a mainstream alternative to Botox or facial surgery. PRP is made up of concentrated platelets and serum from the patient’s own blood. Because platelets are rich in growth factors, they are able to enhance the body’s ability to create new collagen.
At SCIMEDICA, we also use a natural gel filler called bio-matrix plasma filler (BMGF). BMGF is a putty-like filler that can be used in addition to PRP for deep wrinkles or laugh and frown lines. The substance is created from the patient’s own blood and is completely natural.
Why is bioactive cellular facial regeneration used?
Bioactive cellular facial regeneration is used to increase the cellular health of the face, encouraging a healthier, younger appearance. The therapy not only changes the appearance on the outside, but supports ongoing healthy aging, which can benefit the skin for years to come.
Some common facial aging signs that can be improved and rejuvenated with bioactive cellular facial regeneration include:
- Frown lines / laugh lines (wrinkles at the corner of the mouth)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Bunny lines (nose wrinkles)
- Crow’s feet (outer-eye wrinkles)
- Other skin imperfections or signs of aging
- Skin that looks tired, dull and dehydrated
What does bioactive cellular facial regeneration involve?
Before getting bioactive cellular facial regeneration, patients should consult with SCIMEDICA Health Group to evaluate current concerns and to determine whether this treatment option will help them achieve their goals.
During the therapy, your doctor will take blood from a vein and place it in a special centrifuge in order to create the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is created by your doctor from your own blood. Via an advanced method of processing your (drawn) blood, the concentration of platelets and bioactive cells is increased significantly. The concentrated solution is then inserted just beneath the skin on the face, after which cells begin to regenerate and collagen is produced. At SCIMEDICA, our doctors use a more advanced method to obtain PRP than many other available approaches.
