Utilising Your Own Cells To Stimulate The Body's Natural Regenerative Mechanisms

What is Emcyte Pure PRP®?

 Emcyte Pure PRP® is a rejuvenation therapy that concentrates the cells found in your own blood to create anti-ageing treatments to stimulate regeneration in your skin.

What Can Emcyte Pure PRP® Be Used to Treat?

Emcyte achieves natural-looking results including restoring natural volume, improving dull and tired skin, and skin tightening. Treatments include:

  • Total Face Rejuvenation
  • Jaw Line Definition
  • Neck Tightening
  • Peri Oral Lines (lines around the mouth)
  • Peri Orbital Lines (lines around the eyes)
  • Lip Regeneration
  • Post Pregnancy Concerns
  • Hands and Arms
  • Ageing Knees
  • Decollete

Emcyte can also be used for post-menopausal women's health treatments, female sexual enhancement, hair restoration, and sports medicine treatments such as tendon injuries, ligament damage and osteoarthritis.

How Do Platelets Stimulate Regeneration?

Platelets are cells in your blood that respond when a blood vessel is damaged. In addition platelets play an important role in healing by releasing growth factors and stimulating a cascade of processes that lead to tissue repair.

Platelets also assist to stimulate Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in the skin to change from resting to active phase. The MSCs will form new tissue such as collagen, elastin, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, etc, thus assisting to restore the structure of your skin.

The Right Cells At The Right Concentration

To deliver effective rejunvenation the platelets must be concentrated to around five to nine times the baseline level found in your blood. In addition, red blood cells must be removed and nutrients such as amino acids, electrolytes, saccharides, and other micro-nutrients must be present in the right amounts.

White blood cells such as neutrophils and monocytes also play important roles in skin rejunventation treatments. Neutrophils assist in the removal of damaged tissue in preparation for new tissue regeneration. Monocytes are white blood cells that convert into two types of macrophages in skin tissue (M1 or M2). M1 will remove debris, pathogens, bacteria and fibrotic tissue, allowing for a new layer of healthy collagen and elastin. M2 send messenger chemicals to stimulate fibroblasts to repair and regenerate the skin.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Typically an initial course of three treatments spaced over 6 to 12 weeks is recommended. In order to counteract ongoing ageing of the skin a regular maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months will assist to maintain results.

Emcyte Pure-PRP® can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies such as Fractional Resurfacing, IPL, Skin Needling and more.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

One of the advantages of Emcyte Pure PRP is that sample collection, processing and treatment injection can occur in a single appointment. Most treatments will typically be completed in 30 to 60 minutes. There is typically no down time, with mild swelling for a day or two.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Within a week of treatments many patients notice improved hydration in the skin. Changes such as improved skin volume and structure generally occur within 30 days and improvements can continue for up to 90 days.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek  a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Why Emcyte Pure PRP® is Different From Other Systems...

Earlier generation 'test-tube' style PRP systems were not capable of concentrating platelets to the correct concentration necessary for optimal and effective rejuventation. Emcyte's unique separation system delivers better cell extraction including:

  • The highest recovery of platelets
  • The lowest levels of red blood cells
  • The highest levels of monocytes
  • The ability to accurately tailor white blood cell levels to the desired treatmentoutcome

Emcyte Pure PRP® allows your practitioner to deliver consistent results and tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
