PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Facial Rejuvenation
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors. Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in facial rejuvenation around the world. The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone and color with minimal or no downtime. This revolutionary natural procedure offers incredible skin rejuvenation. Platelets in your blood contain numerous Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF). These growth factors stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen and keratin. PDGF have a significant role in blood vessel formation, the cellular division of fibroblasts (the most common cells in connective tissue), and in synthesizing the extracellular matrix and collagen. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles.
To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient’s arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets form the rest of the blood components. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 600%. Using the patient’s own blood, specially prepared platelets are taken and re-injected into the affected area. These platelets release special growth factors that lead to tissue healing. By using the concentrated platelets, we increase the growth factors up to eight times which promotes temporary relief and stops inflammation. PRP injections actually heal the area over a period of time.
