How does Epidermal Cell Suspension Work at Epiderma

Epidermal Cell Suspension in Jayanagar | Epiderma Clinic. Non-Cultured Epidermal Cell Suspension (NCECS) is a novel technique of cellular grafting for skin re-pigmentation. In this procedure, the melanocyte is separated and processed to form a suspension. The suspension is spread over the recipient skin area.  And with NSECS, large depigmented skin area can be treated with the donor-to-recipient expansion ratio of 5-10-fold. The grafted melanocyte spreads to neighbouring skin tissue and brings about re-pigmentation in 2-3 months.   

NCECS Procedure:
  • The epidermis from donor site is punched and processed as suspension containing melanocyte. 
  • The recipient skin is abraded and prepared for grafting. 
  • The suspension is grafted/spread over the abraded skin along with tissue-based glue which helps in haemostasis and adhesion of suspension. 
  • The platelet rich fibrin-based tissue glue is applied over the suspension spread.
  • Dressing is done.
  • Patient is asked to rest for few hours to avoid local manipulation. 
  • Medications is prescribed for few days.
  • Dressing is maintained for 7-8 days and then removed.
