Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) utilizes the growth factors in your own blood plasma to incite collagen creation and increase circulation. The PRP is detached from your blood and then injected in areas showing volume loss, translucency and sagging. In short, this treatment adds volume to your skin and stimulates cells to reproduce.

PRP Therapy is effective in the skin for overall rejuvenation and healing, and in the scalp to awaken inactive follicles and fuel hair growth. When discharged, growth factors inspire collagen creation and formation of fresh capillaries. The procedure is safe, speedy and no downtime….

PRP can be used to treat:

  • Epidermal thinning and volume loss in the face, neck and neckline
  • Fine facial lines and wrinkles
  • Circles, bags and discoloration in the eye region
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Diminish definition in nasolabial folds
  • Active acne and acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has a protracted history of being applied in dentistry, reconstructive surgery and orthopedic medicine. Today, it is also being used in other branches of medicine including dermatology, cosmetic facial rejuvenation and skin wound healing. Scientific findings have proven that PRP generates new collagen when infused into the skin and new studies reveal that PRP can ease sun skin damage as well as aging skin complications.

PRP is fundamentally a natural product constructed from your own body. Through a simple draw of blood, a little amount of blood is drawn from the individual into a sterilized tube. Using a unique centrifuge machine, the blood is spun down in order to take out and concentrate the stem cells, growth factors and platelets that are very essential for tissue healing. This minute amount of blood with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors is referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

PRP is best known for its magnificent act of skin rejuvenation. When PRP is injected into specific parts of the skin, its high platelet concentration functions as a matrix that arouses the growth of fresh collagen, regenerates skin tissue and hence leads to a naturally smooth and firm skin. As a result, PRP treatment gets rid of wrinkles and creates a smoother skin texture and tone.

There is a huge difference between PRP therapy and other skin injections of fillers. Most fillers including Juvederm and Restylane are composed of solid material which fills skin lines and folds. They often last for short period of time and require recurring treatments to seal the region yet again. On the other hand, PRP fuels collagen growth for total facial rejuvenation instead of individual wrinkle enrichment. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is recommended for faces that look drawn, to soften below eye puffiness, enhance the overall skin tone, texture and tightness and seal skin regions where fillers are not able to reach. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can be applied together with PRP given that the two forms of skin treatment actually serve different purposes. The fillers will fill specific wrinkles while PRP will enhance overall wrinkle enhancement.
