KO’AN PPCI (Pure Plasma Cell Infusion) Treatment
Our PPCI Treatment was designed by Dr. Kao to address both hair stimulation and facial rejuvenation.
The procedure involves the collection of a small amount of blood plasma (approximately 50 ml, standard blood donation amount is 250 ml) that is placed in an advanced centrifuge where proteins are separated and reintroduced into the patient’s target areas by injection and a medical grade needling process.
Unlike the “Vampire Facelift”, the red and white blood cells are removed from the patient’s blood during the centrifuge process, rendering concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is a potent stimulator of new collagen and elastin. This plasma is then injected back into the skin to re-energize and rejuvenate cells.
In the case of hair growth, inactive or newly implanted hair follicles are stimulated or “fertilized” by PPCI to increase growth. Micro-needling alone has been shown to promote collagen and elastin synthesis and improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and pore refinement, creating textural improvement overall.
PPCI provides a nutritional boost to skin and hair follicles to eventually reduce wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, redness, age spots, and encourage facial rejuvenation resulting in firmer, toned and overall, younger looking skin. Where hair follicles are treated, the procedure offers thicker, stronger hair growth in area’s that growth messengers have been shut off or interrupted, allowing the natural process of hair growth to be reactivated and stimulated to fill in balding and thinning sections of the scalp.
The process of cell regeneration takes time and multiple treatments. Improvements may become noticeable in 3 weeks and continue for the next 8 months. Results will vary between individuals and while good results are expected, the possibility and nature of complications cannot be forecasted. The PPCI treatment is not permanent, as natural degradation will occur over time. Patients may need 3 to 4 treatments per year for optimal results. It is necessary to consult with the doctor prior to scheduling your appointment.
