Platelet–Rich Plasma

Naturally You

Harness your body’s own healing and regeneration processes.

The abundance of growth factors and signaling molecules found in platelets and blood plasma have made PRP a highly effective and popular treatment method.

Plasma contains many factors essential for cell survival such as nutriments, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes and proteins.  Among the plasma proteins, there are the essential molecules for the coagulation process and generation of the fibrin polymer that will serve as a scaffold for cell migration, differentiation and proliferation.

Platelets are key factors of hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms.  They provide the essential growth factors (FGF, PDGF, TGF-ß, EGF, VEGF, IGF) involved in:

  • Stem cell migration,  differentiation and proliferation
  • Stimulation of cells such as fibroblasts and endothelial cells, to induce new extracellular matrix deposition and neovascularization

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Defy the aging process.

PRP is a wonderful alternative for patients looking for a natural treatment result without the use of foreign substances such as botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid.  When PRP is injected intradermally, the regeneration process is initiated by the release of growth factors which stimulate the breakdown of sun-damaged elements and initiates the synthesis of collagen.

A-PRP® Technology

Behind the science.

We use only the highest quality, medical-grade centrifuge and PRP kits in order to deliver superior results.  Regen Lab is a Swiss R&D and Manufacturer in Biotechnology and is recognized as the leading provider of a patented technology to produce Autologous Platelet – Rich Plasma (A-PRP).  The technology processes the patient’s own blood, to use the platelets, cells and proteins for indications in various medical disciplines such as sports medicine, wound care and aesthetics.  A-PRP is also used in combination with freshly extracted cells such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, and skin cells.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

A natural alternative.

RegenACR (autologous cellular rejuvenation) is an aesthetics treatment that uses the healing potential of the patient’s own blood to bio stimulate skin cells.  RegenACR uses the richness of growth factors contained in A-PRP® and the process of mesenchymal stem cell stimulation to regenerate and revitalize damaged skin.

  • Less painful
  • Less downtime
  • Is a safe and simple procedure (no allergic reaction, no infection)
  • Shows faster reaction to reduce fine wrinkles with enhancement of skin texture
  • Improvements in texture
  • Increased hydration & specific local improvements
  • Improvements in skin quality,  complexion and overall tone

Aesthetic Applications of PRP

Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss.  At some point in our lives, everyone experiences hair loss.  Alopecia is often used as an umbrella term for diseases such as alopecia areata (spot baldness) and alopecia totalism (hair loss all over the head).

Fine lines are small and shallow lines that appear on the face as early signs of aging.

The eye area is a particularly fragile region in which may appear bluish coloration due to a microcirculation disorder, sometimes associated with a darker area under the lower eyelid.

Localized treatment by injecting a gel preparation of A-PRP restores harmony and proportions in the volumes of the face.  Growth factors present in A-PRP stimulate the microcirculation around your eye, its brightness is improved.

Fine lines turn into deeper wrinkles.  As you age, the collagen and elastin beneath the surface of your skin begins to break down.

Analgesic and anti inflammatory effects of A-PRP help to fight the pain and significantly improve the speed of wound healing after laser or chemical peel treatments.

PRP & Microneedling

The Vampire Facial.

The skin rejuvenation treatment made famous by Kim Kardashian, is a combination of micro needling and PRP.  Studies have shown that this combination leads to better clinical results and higher patient satisfaction.  Overall, treatment with PRP results in improved skin texture and increased glow, along with volume improvements.

U225

Harness the healing power of your own blood.

The U225 mesogun is a French revolution in mesotherapy.  Using a very fine needle, it creates thousands of tiny punctures into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin), through which platelet – rich plasma is delivered.

PRP Hair Restoration

Promote hair growth. Prevent hair loss.

Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (A-PRP) injections rely on a safe and simple technique using the regenerative and healing properties of platelets. Platelets have the ability to locally release growth factors. Growth factors are small molecules that act as messengers to initiate the process of cellular regeneration. From just a few millilitres of blood, Dr. Mazzuca isolates your platelets using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in a small amount of plasma. This is then injected through a thin needle in the skin of the scalp.  PRP injected into the scalp stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells in hair follicles.  The growth factors stimulate dormant hair follicles as well as the blood supply to the hair follicles, causing a significant increase in the diameter and thickness of the follicle.  A-PRP injections in the scalp stimulate bulb cells at base of the hair and the surrounding microcirculation.  Vitality, color and brightness of your hair are enhanced; their loss is slowed and their growth is activated.

Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

Injury & pain relief.

In addition to aesthetic medicine, PRP has also been used in orthopaedics and sports medicine for many years in order to treat muscle and tendon injuries, as well as arthritis.  It has also been used successfully by many team physicians, including those of renowned soccer and basketball teams, to get players back in the game sooner.  PRP is quickly gaining popularity amongst elite athletes for it’s ability to aid in recovery and facilitate a faster return to activity.  That being said, PRP is not just for professional athletes.  It’s applications and benefits are vast!

  • Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Cartilage lesions
  • Tendinous, ligamentous & muscular lesions
Promotes and accelerates the healing process, providing significant improvement in symptoms
  • Significant reduction of pain
  • Rules out the risk of immunological reactions & contamination by transmissible diseases
  • Reduces the need for alternative treatments like medications, cortisone injections, surgery etc

Wound Care

ULCERS

The application of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (A-PRP) in gel form is particularly effective in the treatment of ulcers (neuropathic, venous and pressure ulcers), triggering the healing process even in chronic non-responsive wounds.  It decreases pain and inflammation and reduces the hospitalization time.

STERNOTOMY WOUND

A study evaluated that the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) applied inside the sternotomy wound would reduce the effect of sternal wound infections, both superficial and deep.

DIABETIC FOOT ULCER

In patients with diabetic foot ulcers and concomitant Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), RegenKit A-PRP Plus Autologous Thrombin Serum successfully reduces ulcers and contributes to avert amputation in 89% of limbs treated.
