For Facial Rejuvenation and Enhanced Healing Technique
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF®)
The aesthetic treatment with Plasma Rich in Growth Factors PRGF® is one of the latest advances in facial rejuvenation (Facial Antiaging). It is a new technique that allows the surgeon to isolate and use the growth factors (biostimulating substances) from a patient’s own plasma in order to stimulate, potentiate, and accelerate tissue regeneration. The patient’s isolated plasma (specifically, the Epidermal Growth Factor) is applied to the face, neck and neckline skin in order to stimulate tissue regeneration, producing an increase in the skin’s thickness, smoothness and luminosity, and mitigating the effects of the aging process. PRGF® is also used during surgical procedures as an enhanced healing technique to reduce scarring.
Stem Cells (AmnioMTM™)
AmnioMTM™, is a cryopreserved amnion allograft, derived from the placenta of live, healthy donors. The human placenta, besides playing a critical and fundamental role in fetal development, nutrition and protection, represents a significant source of multipotent stem cells and fetal healing components. AmnioMTM™ provides a three dimensional extracellular matrix, which acts as a natural scaffold for cellular attachment in the body. AmnioMTM™ also contains multipotential cells that are capable of differentiating into all three germ layers of the human body. The ECM houses and provides structural support to cells while regulating cell adhesion, cell division, cell differentiation, and cell migration. Together in this complex, dynamic bone and wound healing system, AmnioMTM™ delivers osteogenic, osteoconductive, and osteoinductive elements to enhance and proliferate wound and bone healing and repair. Amniotic allografts have been scientifically documented and clinically proven to be efficacious in a wide array of surgical applications ranging from: anti-adhesion, anti-inflammatory barrier in spinal laminectomies, ocular surface ophthalmic procedures, and diabetic wound care management.
Dr. Todd Sawisch is the only Maxillofacial surgeon in south Florida incorporating the use of amniotic stem cells into facial plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation procedures. Combining stem cells and plasma rich in growth factors from a patient’s own blood, has resulted in advanced healing and virtually undetectable incision lines. Dr. Sawisch also uses stem cells & PRGF for facial rejuvenation through an injectable treatment completed in the office in one hour. This procedure promotes collagen regeneration, as well as improved skin tone and texture.
