By extracting a sample of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge we can concentrate growth factors into a formula to be injected back in to the treatment area to improve, stimulate and strengthen skin to achieve anti-ageing benefits.
The most readily available form of growth factors are obtained directly from your own blood. We extract the blood, run it through a centrifuge and inject the product directly into the subcutaneous layer of skin.
