MC/X – BODY ACTIVE SUBSTANCES
Blood therapies are an important component of effective anti-aging concepts because the body’s own healing substances are optimally adapted to the needs of the skin and can thus improve the skin structure directly, extremely well-tolerated, and very effectively. The hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the middle layer of the skin in the Mesolift, can be additionally enriched with the body’s own active ingredients, using a concentrate of leukocytes and growth factors.
MC/x is a protein mixture developed by Molecular Cosmetics, which is extracted from the patient’s own blood. Due to its endogenous active ingredients, it is optimally adapted to the individual needs of the skin and is particularly well tolerated. By means of microinjection, the protein mixture is released into the skin where it can develop its full effect.
In order to obtain MC/x, the patient first has to give off a small amount of blood, which is then processed in a complex biochemical procedure following a serological test. During this process, the white blood cells, so-called monocytes, and other cells are stimulated to produce valuable growth factors, anti-inflammatory proteins, and regenerative substances. The growth factors (TGF beta, IGF) obtained are responsible for increased collagen formation in the skin cells and anti-interleukins protect our skin from chronic inflammation, which is a major factor in skin aging. In addition, metalloproteinases, which are responsible for naturally programmed cell death, are blocked.
