Bone Regeneration and Facial Rejuvenation

Bone Regeneration

Our blood is rich in growth factors and plasma that are necessary for the creation of new tissues, depending on the area of their placement. In the event that a large extraction has to be done, usually of a molar or even a front tooth in the aesthetic zone, there is a risk that the bone will start to shrink and get smaller, thus weakening the jaw and reducing the future ability to place an implant. In such a case, a minimum amount of blood of 9-36 ml is collected in vials according to needs and the vials are placed in a centrifuge device, a special process that separates the blood plasma from its other components such as white blood cells, platelets and others. It is then kept ατ 36-37 °C in a sterile environment and placed on the bone where the tooth was located before extraction (alveolar bone). This offers better and faster healing, less pain, bone preservation so the jaw remains strong.

Facial Rejuvenation

The signs of aging are visible when collagen decreases. By following exactly the same procedure, we can regenerate areas of the face and the perioral area in a natural way, autologously, without the addition of foreign substances to the body, but exclusively from our own blood. This can be done with autologous mesotherapy where the plasma is this time placed on areas of the face where the skin shows stretch marks, dehydration, scars, discolorations and acne, giving instant firmness. The plasma when placed on the skin, it provokes the local cells to produce natural collagen, a substance that is naturally present in the body and will give youth to the face.


What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a medical method, in which the specialist injects various substances, such as vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes and amino acids, as well as homeopathic and medicinal substances either intraepidermally or intradermally, through small injections οn the skin. It was first applied by the French physician Michel Pistor (1924-2003), who observed a clinical improvement in hearing in a deaf patient after multiple injections of procaine in the ear region. In 1958, the first official reference and definition of mesotherapy was made. Multiple applications in various fields of medicine and dentistry have since followed. Since 2002 it has been officially recognized in France as a medical specialization (Diplome Interuniversitaire).

What is Autologous Mesotherapy – PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is the treatment that takes advantage of its healing components
blood to accelerate the natural regeneration of cells, to cause synthesis
collagen, to enhance blood circulation in the treatment area and restore
the damage that appears on the skin over time. In other words the skin becomes
firmer and more elastic.

What is the goal of Autologous Mesotherapy?

The primary concern is promoting the activity of the body’s fibroblasts, the
which will then produce new collagen and provide all the necessary
factors for the cellular plexus (such as elastin, glycoproteins, etc.), as well as hyaluronic acid
acid, which is responsible for the regeneration and hydration of the skin.

In which cases is it used?

– Replenishment of lost volume.

– Correction of superficial and deeper wrinkles on the face, neck and décolleté.

– Epidermal relaxation and loss of volume.

– Dull, dry and dehydrated skin to hydrate.

– Correction of acne scars.

– Treatment of discolorations on the face.

– Correction of stretch marks and dilated pores.

How is the process made?

With PRP, up to 36 ml are taken from the patient in a simple and painless procedure.
It is noted that a unit of blood such as that given in a simple blood donation weighs about 450
ml, an amount which is not felt when it is given, since it is quickly replenished by the
organism of the healthy blood donor. Then, this blood is subjected to centrifugation, so that
isolate the plasma containing a high content of platelets and growth factors
factors. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then activated by adding
solution of nucleotides (PRP with DNA activator) and calcium ions. Alternatively, it can be done
autologous thrombin activation, where the doctor uses the patient’s own blood,
autologous thrombin, without the use of additional solutions.

After the blood is activated what’s next?

The plasma is then injected periorally or even into the face, neck, décolleté and hands. This can
done locally, focusing on deep wrinkles, or using the mesotherapy technique. The plasma is placed in the epidermis or mesoderm, i.e. in the deeper layers of the skin. The duration of the procedure is maximum 10 minutes until the plasma gets too viscous.

Is it a safe treatment?

The treatment is very safe as it uses the patient’s own blood, eliminating
thus the risk of allergic reactions or any other complication. In addition, due to the quick healing caused
from the action of the platelets, the patient can return to activities and
his work the next day.

Results and duration

After the treatment, slight redness is expected in the area for two hours and the return to everyday life is immediate. The result is visible in 24 hours, reaching its peak after a week. For optimal results, repetition is recommended after 1 month and 6 months, in order to maintain the result for the maximum period of time.
