Regenerative Epithelial Suspension (RES) For Altered Skin Pigmentation Problems And Scars

RES is used for the treatment of the loss and altered skin pigmentation problems, restoration of scars, acne scars and burn scars…

The surface of the treated skin area has to be removed by CO2 laser or dermabrasion. The autologous skin cells are prepared by the split skin technique and epithelial cells are processed by RES; The separated epithelial cells are then put on the prepared treated area.

Regenerative Epithelial Suspension effective healing and the formation of good quality skin requires the presence and products of keratinocytes, fibroblasts and melanocytes. These cells are highly interactive and communicate with each other via secreted factors, their receptors and via cell/cell contracts to regulate the function and phenotype of the skin. Regenerative Epithelial Suspension contains viable population of all the skin cell phenotypes that have been shown to be essential for normal regeneration and pigmentation of the skin.resize-11
