What are biostimulator options?
PRP - works by using your own platelet cells, from a portion of your own blood. It is rich in growth factors and stem cells to regenerate the tissue, thus increasing your own collagen and elastin naturally. Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Injected platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate and stimulate repair, increase volume and rejuvenate the skin.
Additionally, growth factors boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity. PRP Injections are injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss and/or wrinkles and provide a gradual increase in skin thickness.
PROFHILO - Pure hyaluronic acid.
