As the first in Poland, we offer you this innovative solution representing a breakthrough in aesthetic dermatology – the Gravity Platelet Separation System. Owing to this modern method, you can even more effectively and for longer rejuvenate the skin, smooth out the wrinkles and furrows or stimulate hair growth. Already one treatment is enough to obtain spectacular effects of the skin rejuvenation and enjoy its healthier appearance without having to undergo plastic surgery.
What is the Angel System for?
The Genesis System is used for the separation of platelets and production of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which speeds up the biorestoration and regeneration of all cells. The Genesis System applies to the preparation of platelet concentrate with a small amount of the patient’s blood (max. 60 ml). Thanks to the coordinated work of specialized medical equipment, it is possible to recover over 90% of thrombocytes from a blood sample, as well as obtain from 9- to 14-fold concentration of platelets what has been confirmed in numerous scientific publications and randomized research works. All of this is done during one single visit, in front of the patient, and the preparation of the platelet rich plasma takes about 15 minutes. Ageing skin loses elasticity, has a reduced ability to retain moisture, contains a smaller concentration of hyaluronic acid and, most importantly, has decreased levels of collagen. The effectiveness of application of the PRP therapy which consists in stimulating the growth of collagen fibres in the skin is supported by a number of clinical trials.
What does it mean PRP?
PRP stands for a Platelet Rich Plasma, which is obtained from a small amount of the patient’s own blood. The Genesis System in real time „in front of” the patient prepares the formulation which has an individually selected, clinically effective level of concentration of platelets. Due to its autologous nature (originating from the patient’s own blood), the PRP does not provoke immunological disorders and does not involve the risk of allergic reaction. PRP application procedures are not painful, and patients can resume activity immediately after treatment.
What types of treatments can be carried out with the use of the Angel System?
- Needle mesotherapy the skin of the face, neck and body.
- Needle mesotherapy of the scalp.
- Filling in the furrows and wrinkles.
The needle mesotherapy using the PRP concentrate is a novelty on the Polish market. In Europe, however, it has been used for a long time. Initially the treatments with the use of platelet rich plasma were used in orthopaedics (in the regeneration of the damaged Achilles tendon and other ligaments, and during bone operations), rheumatology and dermatology as plasmapheresis treatments for some illnesses in order to speed up the process of wound healing. In dermatology it has been successfully employed in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, burns, scars, stretch marks and different types of baldness. The PRP concentrate is often used in plastic and reconstructive surgery, among other things after face-lifting, after blepharoplastic interventions and the breast augmentation.
Very popular also in lipo-filling, that is filling in wrinkles with the patient’s own fat tissue in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma. Benefits of application of the platelet rich plasma consist in reducing capillary bleeding, easing post-operative pain and oedema, shortening recovery time, accelerating healing of wounds, improving damaged sensation and promoting the regeneration of nerves.
What are growth factors?
The growth factors contained in the platelets take part in the process of cell renewal in the epidermis and dermis, activate the synthesis of collagen and elastin, and support repair processes counteracting the ageing of the skin or hair loss.
The platelet rich plasma stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts – this stimulation, according to scientific literature, is dependent on the concentration and number of growth factors that coat the platelets in the PRP. In platelets we can found dozens of different biologically active substances which are involved in the processes of tissue repair and regeneration. The concentration of platelets in the plasma is several times higher than in the whole blood (depending on the method of acquiring, from 2 to 9, and even 14 times), in the method proposed by us it comes to their 14-times the concentration! Therefore, the higher the concentration of platelets in the plasma, the greater the concentration of growth factors and the better the biostimulation. Hence the biostimulation effect of the platelet rich plasma consists in activating different cell types by the discussed growth factors. The more growth factors, the better the effect of regeneration, repair and rejuvenation.
What effects can I expect?
Progressing steadily processes of production of new collagen, noticeably improve elasticity, density and firmness of the skin, while its colouring and texture regenerate, and furrows and wrinkles are reduced. The PRP also supports the ability of the skin to retain moisture. The process of natural, biological regeneration using the patient’s own „material”, offers long-lasting results, is a real prevention against skin ageing, as well as it constitutes a peculiar breakthrough in the treatment of scalp disorders. Celebrities from across the ocean already know this …
For whom are allocated the treatments with the Genesis System?
For all patients, women and men of all ages. Regeneration of the skin and hair using the platelet rich plasma is a basic point in terms of planning treatments and activities that ensure the longevity of skin, and being “forever young”.
How is this happening?
Without blood, our body would cease to function. Each and every cell in the body receives the nutrients from the blood. A statistical adult man has about 5 litres (5,3 litres) of circulating blood throughout the body. It accounts for about 7%-8% of body weight. Of these 5 litres, a volume of approximately 2,75 – 3 litres – it is plasma, and the remainder are living cells – morphotic elements of the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and others).
Plasma is the liquid (90% is water). The red and white blood cells and other substances float in the plasma, because they are being distributed throughout the body. The plasma is a transporter for these cells.
The red blood cells are also called erythrocytes, they form the most numerous group of blood cells. These account for about 40%-45% of the blood. The indicated percentage of the blood which consists of the number of red blood cells is often measured and is called haematocrit. The average life cycle of a red blood cell is 120 days. The bones constantly produce new red blood cells complementing their stock.
The primary function of erythrocytes is the transport of oxygen from the lungs to all cells of the body and the “waste disposal”. The red blood cells contain a protein called haemoglobin which carries 97% of oxygen to the body’s cells. They are red due to the concentration of haemoglobin that actually is in red.
The white blood cells, also known as leukocytes, are part of the immune system and help your body to fight infections and infestations. When bacteria invade, the leukocytes can attack them in different ways. Some will produce antibodies that defeat the bacteria. Other surround and devour the bacteria. One drop of blood can contain from 7 000 to 25 000 leukocytes at once. When the number of leukocytes in the blood increases, this is a sign of the ongoing infection in the body. The average life cycle of white blood cells ranges from a few days to a few weeks.
The platelets are also known as thrombocytes, are viscid, irregularly shaped and colourless. They are formed in the bone marrow, and their life cycle usually lasts 10 days.
When it comes to interrupt the continuity of the tissues (e.g. at the injection site during mesotherapy) and to bleeding, the platelets gathers at this point and try to block the flow of blood. Calcium, vitamin K and protein called fibrinogen help the thrombocytes to create a blood clot. In this fibrin clot, formed at the injury site, the platelets disintegrate (the platelet degranulation), releasing the growth factors (GFs).
