Taking a vial of your own blood and running it through a process of centrifuging and filtering to extract the platelet-rich serum, the process results in the Biofil gel.
This is then injected under your skin, using a cannula to volumise, lift and rejuvenate your face, neck or hands. Producing growth factors and collagen, it comes minus the risk of any allergic reactions, since we’re using your own biological product to perform the procedure.
Containing a cocktail of growth factors which promote healing and stimulate your body to produce its own collagen, the results of treatment are much more durable than they would be with collagen fillers. The reason for this is simple: while an artificial collagen filler diminishes over time, Biofil encourages your own collagen production.
Gradually absorbing back into your body, Biofil’s effects accumulate in such a way that we believe they may become permanent. Since the treatment is still new, we can’t be absolutely sure of this, but research and trials suggest that after three to five procedures, a permanent result can be achieved.
You must be fit and healthy and over the age of 18 to be eligible for this treatment. You must also have realistic expectations regarding the result.
Please note: people who suffer from poor wound healing ability, or who have a tendency to abnormal scar formation, are not suitable for Biofil.
Since the patient’s own blood is used, a normal blood sample must first be taken. No sedation is required, and you will be able to drive and function normally following the treatment. Topical numbing can be used to help the area prior to injecting. Side effects include slight swelling, mild reddening and possible bruising. Work may be resumed immediately after the treatment and make-up can be applied a few hours following the procedure
