For over 15 years, the Greco family has successfully implemented regenerative medicine in Sarasota. Dr. Joseph Greco offers some of the most advanced techniques and treatments in regenerative medicine in Sarasota. This includes cytokine-rich plasma-based therapies for hair regrowth and facial rejuvenation.
What is Regenerative Medicine/Dermatology?
Regenerative dermatology in Sarasota is an important part of what we do at Greco Dermatology. It’s utilized in our hair restoration treatments and our bio-enhanced skin therapy (BEST) procedures for cosmetic concerns. Our regenerative dermatology uses cytokine-rich plasma (CRP) in a natural protein-rich matrix as part of our bio-enhanced facial therapy, topical therapy, and our patented and proprietary biologic treatments for hair loss. CRP is a powerful solution derived from your own blood and contains an optimal concentration of essential growth factors.
What Regenerative Dermatology Can Address
- Photo aging
- Loss of collagen
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Volume loss
- Sagging skin
- Abnormal skin texture and tone
- Large pores
- Androgenic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss)
- Alopecia from inflammatory conditions (alopecia areata, lupus, psoriasis, etc.)
The Three Main Components of CRP/Matrix
The unique and natural CRP/Matrix contains three main components, all autologous and derived from each patient’s own blood:
Growth factors with anabolic properties
The growth factors that are derived from the body’s platelets exert an anabolic and regenerative effect on the skin by stimulating enhanced growth and function of stem cells, keratinocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and epithelial cells. This translates to new cellular growth in the skin, collagen and elastin formation, angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), enhanced wound healing, and repair of damaged tissue.
Through their effects on cellular signaling, the anti-inflammatory cytokines can block the harmful inflammatory molecules that are linked to premature aging and hair loss.
The inflammatory blockade restores a more balanced, natural environment, stimulates hair growth, and aids in wound healing.
Natural protein matrix
This is the key differentiating factor with the CRP/Matrix. We use a proprietary technique to create a natural protein-rich matrix to serve as a biological scaffold to concentrate the growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the target tissue at far higher levels than can be achieved without it. It provides an optimal environment for tissue remodeling and regeneration. The concentrated protein-rich matrix resides in the target tissue for long periods of time, which yields longer-lasting effects.
Hair Restoration Treatments with BEST Regenerative Medicine
The BioScalp CRP/Matrix treatment is one of our key therapies at Greco Dermatology and is utilized alone or in conjunction with hair transplantation (bio-enhanced FUT and bio-enhanced FUE). Our patented and proprietary biologic treatments for hair loss target the reversal of the miniaturization process that is seen in male and female pattern hair loss, as well as inflammatory-induced alopecia.
During hair transplant procedures, the CRP/Matrix is utilized to provide optimal growth and wound healing conditions, as well as achieve the greatest chance of survival and growth potential for the hair follicles. The enhanced blood flow around the hair follicles that is induced by the growth factors — along with the cytokine-driven reduction in inflammation — catalyzes hair regrowth.
This is why the CRP/matrix is an essential component of our surgical hair restoration procedures.
At-Home Topical Treatment with BEST Regenerative Medicine
We’ve developed a way for you to incorporate your very own growth factors into a personalized, take-home serum to be incorporated into your daily skincare routine. Your bio-enhanced topical therapy will help to regenerate collagen and reduce the appearance of small pores, fine lines, and dark spots that result from photoaging.
After we draw some blood from your arm, the cytokine-rich plasma will be extracted from it and combined with a take-home Nova™ Skin Serum Kit for application into your daily skincare regimen.
The bio-enhanced topical therapy can be used either on its own, or to enhance and maintain results following any of our bio-enhanced skin therapy procedures.
Greco Dermatology: A Regenerative Dermatology Center in Sarasota
Joseph F. Greco, M.D. is a third-generation doctor who, after a lifetime immersed in medicine, now offers his own patients the same quality of care that he learned from watching his grandfather and father practice.
