Autologous Conditioned Serum

Autologous Conditioned Serum is a biological treatment used to target areas of active inflammation in the skin, such as acne, using the patient's own blood as a source for the anti-inflammatory factors of the treatment. First, blood is safely extracted from the patient and incubated at a raised temperature before being centrifuged until its constituent parts are separated.

The resulting serum that is derived from the blood contains strong anti-inflammatory factors such as Interleukin (IRAP) 1 and 2, which can then be safely injected back into the body to target areas of inflammation, bringing both visible and pain relief benefits.

About

Autologous injections refer to medical or cosmetic treatments where a patient's own biological materials, typically obtained from their own body, are used for therapeutic or aesthetic purposes.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The first step in autologous injections is to collect the biological material from the patient's body. This can be done through various methods depending on the type of material being used. For example, if it's blood for PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient's arm. If it's fat for fat grafting or lipofilling, a small amount of fat is typically harvested from an area with excess fat using a liposuction technique.

After the biological material is collected, it may need to be processed to isolate or concentrate the desired components. Once the biological material is processed, it can be injected back into the patient's body at the site of treatment. The material is carefully injected using a fine needle or cannula, depending on the treatment area and the type of material being used.
