Welcome to our BEST procedures at Greco Dermatology in Sarasota! BEST (bio-enhanced skin therapy) offers patients skin rejuvenation and hair restoration by using growth factors derived from their very own blood via our specialized cytokine-rich plasma (CRP) solution.
The Three Main Components of CRP
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.
- Anti-inflammatory cytokines: 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.
