Platelet-rich Plasma Injection (PRP)
Is used for rejuvenation therapy because PRP contains several different growth factors that stimulate a stem cell response. These stem cells help you to grow new collagen and blood vessel, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging. In our clinic we use MyCells for this treatment.
How does MyCells work? MyCells extracts PRP from the patient’s blood and then injected to the affected areas of the patient. Degranulation takes place after injection when the growth Factors are released from PRP. During this process the content of the platelet-granules are being released by budding from platelet membranes and addition of side chains.
Thus, it is important that platelets remain viable and intact during the separation process to remain effective.
These Growth Factors bind to receptor of the cells that are being attracted to the wound. Acceleration of normal wound healing takes place when collagen production, cells proliferation and chemo attractant activity attracts Mesenchymal stem cells to the wound.
How much blood that needed for one time treatment is depends on which area do you want for your treatment. Usually 10cc of blood is used for 1 area such as face. The treatment took time around 1 hr including 30 min application of anesthetic cream

Skin rejuvenation procedures using machine laser therapy with Q-Switched Nd:YAG. Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment designed to remove skin blemishes and stimulate increased production of collagen which works to improve overall appearance of the skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation is done by projecting a laser light onto the skin blemishes treated.
The energy delivered from the laser causes the problematic cells to heat up and break down into substances which can then be absorbed and discarded via the blood stream. The blemishes treated are mostly found on the skin’s surface, the dermis, but the laser energy also heats up sub skin tissues, (the epidermis), this causes increased collagen production which does wonders towards improving overall skin complexion.
