Application is done via injection of the persons own enriched autologous plasma (with high platelets concentration) to the areas of interest. These platelets release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. As a result, active acne lesions and scars heal faster.

Subcision & Dermal Filler
Subcision, also known as subcutaneous incisionless surgery, is a minor office surgical procedure for treating depressed scars and wrinkles using a tri-beveled hypodermic needle inserted through a puncture in the skin surface, and its sharp edges maneuvered under the defect to make subcuticular cuts. The principle of this procedure is to break the fibrotic strands, which tether the scar to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. The depression is lifted by the releasing action of the procedure, as well as from connective tissue that forms during the course of normal wound healing. It can easily be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers, laser, dermaroller and scar revisions for maximum efficacy.

This highly effective procedure is commonly used to treat acne and surgical scarring, facial lines and wrinkles (rhytides), sun damage, skin pigmentation associated with photoaging as well as stretch marks.
