Newest aesthetic breakthrough!
"My Cells" has hit our shores. Turn back the clock 10 years with the blood running through your own veins. In a simple 20minute procedure a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm then spun and prepared to produce pure plasma rich in growth factors, stem cells and molecules to attract fibroblasts. With a refined mesotherapy procedure it is injected back into the wrinkles, sagging and dull skin with amazing results. A dynamic rejuvenation follows. Lost volume is replaced with a plumping action, new collagen is formed with a firming action and new blood vessels appear with a glowing action. This procedure is now available in Gauteng for the first time. Contact Pure Retreat and Aesthetics where two physicians are using this procedure with great success.MyCells® - The product
MyCells® is a revolutionary method, based on using ingredients of your own blood, which can regenerate your skin. These ingredients reside within the fraction of your blood named "Platelet Rich Plasma" (PRP). PRP is enriched with platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Once injected into your skin, these substances will accelerate the normal healing process via new collagen formation at the injected area. This process brings to long lasting tissue rejuvenation by your own cells. PRP has been widely used for many years in plastic surgery, orthopedics, dentistry, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.
10 to 20 minutes prior to treatment, your physician will draw 10 to 20 milliliters of your blood, using a standard procedure, causing minimal pain (like taking a standard blood test). Thereafter, he will separate the blood into its ingredients, in a procedure that will last 10-20 minutes. MyCells® is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss and/or wrinkles. MyCells® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear after the first treatment session.
Treatment results will typically last up to (1-1½) years after the first treatment session in most patients. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.
What is MyCells® Based on?
MyCells® is a method based on using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP (Platelet Rich plasma) is a concentration of human platelets (PLT) in a small volume of plasma. PRP utilizes the patients own (autologous) PLT, derived from his/her blood.
Why is the excitement about MyCells®?
PRP usage takes advantage of normal the body´s healing pathways, only at an accelerated rate. During wound healing, many cells rush into the wound site. Among these cells, there are platelets (PLT).
What do PLT do at the injection site?
• Form blood clots (“PLT gel”).
• Release Growth Factors and proteins (see below).
• Stimulate Stem Cells to regenerate new tissue.
• Accelerate bone healing through Osteo-progenitor cells.
PLT must be intact, in order not to damage these processes!!!
