Using recombinant protease instead of animal origin trypsin to separate cells, cold and soft technique which yields higher cell yield and avoidance of foreign proteins like trypsin inhibitors, artificial growth factors and animal origin collagen sheets makes his procedure more effective and safe. He constantly innovates in his techniques to being relevant in achieving better results even in toughest vitiligo patches.
