What is PFC Injection?
PFC Injection is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is customized from patient's blood. The procedure involves an extraction process of essential active ingredients generated from blood to be injected for an anti-aging treatment.
The treatment focuses on eliminating wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, as well as bunny lines, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, and neck lines.
How It Works
PFC Injection works by utilizing active ingredients that can be extracted from the autologous blood to inject and treat specific areas on the face.
Rich in PDGF (Platelet-derived Growth Factor), PFC is known to effectively activates the skin, even twice more than the amount of PRP made from an equal amount of blood. The skin activation is initiated by the action of growth factors; this stimulates natural collagen, elastin, as well as hyaluronic acid production for the beautiful skin restoration. The treatment is rather an underlying therapeutic effect with a long-lasting effect. There is no need to worry about allergies or side effects as no extra additives will be used throughout the process, only an original infusion material made entirely from the patient's own blood.
Other than that, PFC Injection helps in various factors such as FGF, EGF, VEGF, and TGF-Beta as well.
FGF (Fibroblast growth factor) - Potent regulator of cell proliferation and differentiation. This is critically essential in normal development, tissue maintenance, wound repair, and angiogenesis in somatic stem cells.
EGF (Epidermal growth factor) - A protein that stimulates cell growth and differentiation by binding to its receptor, EGFR.
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) - A protein that promotes growth and the formation of new blood vessels.
TGF-Beta (Transforming Growth Factor Beta) - A multipotent growth factor affecting cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis and matrix production.
How Is Customized PFC Made?
To successfully produce PFC, 50 cc of blood will be collected from the patient and sent to the CPC (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare registered cell manufacturing facility) for the safety inspection such as testing for any present infectious diseases as well as the overall condition. Once the compatibility is confirmed, the blood will then be used to proceed with extractions and fusions in a completely sterile environment.
Patients need not to worry about the human errors as each person's blood will be labeled with unique bar codes throughout the lab processes, including on the bottles and packagings.
Method Of Injection
From the patient's blood collected, there will be 6 PFCs bottles made in one set. It is possible to inject different areas such as under the eye and the streak line on the same day, and also possible to inject multiple times at only one particular area.
