SKIN CARE & REJUVENATION
Sun, skin disorders, aging and even heredity can all contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body. These include textural irregularities like wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentation changes like freckles, sunspots or visible blood vessels. In addition, skin may lose tone, feel less firm and lose the healthy glow that is evident in younger skin.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PRP is a procedure that uses your own blood to repair your cells. It has proven its effectiveness at addressing aesthetic problems. Since your own blood has amazing healing properties, this treatment has revolutionized the reversal of skin aging and damage.
How it works: A fraction of blood is drawn up from the individual patient into a syringe. This is a relatively small amount compared to blood donation. The blood is spun down in a special centrifuge (according to standard Harvest Techniques) to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Plasma. The platelet rich plasma is first separated then activated with a small amount of calcium to allow the release of growth factors from the platelets which in turn amplifies the healing process. PRP is then injected/microneedle or both into the area to be treated. Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting process. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the clot they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells to repair the damaged area. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As the collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area. When treating injured or sun and time damaged tissue they can induce a remodeling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state. The full procedure takes approximately 45 minutes - 1 hr. Generally 2-3 treatments are advised, however, more or less may be indicated for some individuals. Touch up treatment may be done once a year after the initial group of treatments to boost and maintain the results.
BENEFITS of PRP: Along with the benefit of using your own tissue therefore eliminating allergies there is the added intrigue of mobilizing your own stem cells for your benefit. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin as in: improving skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and elastin, and by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars. The most dramatic results so far have been the creepy skin problems in areas such as under the eyes, neck, and décolletage areas. It is not designed to replace cosmetic surgery for loose skin where procedures such as blepharoplasties etc would be more appropriate. Other benefits: minimal down time, safe with minimal risk, short recovery time, natural looking results, no general anesthesia is required.
PRP’S SAFETY has been established for over 20 years for its wound healing properties and it’s proven effectiveness has extended across multiple medical specialties including cardiovascular surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, dermatology (chronic wound healing), ophthalmology, cosmetic surgery, among others. PRP’s emergence into aesthetics and skin rejuvenation began in 2004 in Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America. All skin tones show that PRP is safe and effective because our own enriched plasma is used.
