PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical rejuvenation treatment which harnesses growth factors that increase the proliferation of reparative cells.
Your own platelet-rich plasma is used to rejuvenate the appearance of facial tissue or to promote hair growth. The secret weapon is that platelets have growth factors which are instrumental in promoting collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration.
We first draw a small amount of blood which is centrifuged to separate out the platelets and plasma that will be injected into the problem areas using micro-needling. The combination of the growth hormone infusion, in tandem with the stimulation of the micro-needling, helps to generate cell turn over.
PRP naturally stimulates your stem cells and helps to generate collagen, resulting in a more youthful appearance. The plasma delivers nutrients to the skin’s cells, which help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other effects of aging.
PRP therapy is also used for hair loss and addresses male and female pattern baldness using enriched cells (PRP) from your own blood, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. Treatments should be spaced 2 months apart.
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Pen position used and the number of overlapping passes performed. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the special Skin Science products in the post treatment kit, which is included in your treatment, can aid the healing process.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
