Beauty that comes from within:

Fast, well tolerable, 100 % body’s own substances.

Treatment usually lasts less than 30 minutes. Given very ne needles are used, hardly any bleeding occurs. As the procedure uses your body‘s own substances, it is comparably safe and well tolerated. 

 

 

Treatment
Your physician draws 15 ml of blood from you to isolate the platelets (thrombocytes). A medical device and centrifuge is used to perform this procedure.

He / she then injects these at the treatment site (e.g., your face, your hairline) to stimulate the body’s own regeneration processes. 1

The platelets contain growth factors that promote the production of cell-preserving substances, including collagen and hyaluronic acid. 2,3
The way platelets close wound and encourage healing also stimulates regeneration and cellular metabolism.
