What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)Facial Rejuvenation is an extremely safe, more natural option, because the procedure uses your body’s own stem cells, stimulating collagen production. It’s hydrating, provides nutrition and healing properties in the form of concentrated plasma, and helps to repair delicate tissue – such as the thinner skin under the eyes.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells, and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Published medical literature from Europe and the United States confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy. It has been used a medial adjunct therapy for over two decades for skin and wound healing. PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last twenty years with generally positive outcomes and success.
HOW DO YOU PERFORM THE PROCEDURE?
Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing at your physician’s office. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
The PRP is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. We use Emcyte PRP System. It is a closed sterile system and the platelets are concentrated to 8X the normal blood values. The system eliminates granulocytes which hurts tissue regeneration and wound healing. An anesthesia block is given to nerves of the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain.
A boost in collagen creates a more youthful appearance, and results can last for months to years after a PRP Facial Rejuvenation treatment. Typically, one to two treatments are necessary, depending on your specific skincare needs.
