Rejuvenation of the Skin

Platelet–Rich Plasma (PRP)

Biofacial Rejuvenation of the Skin with Your Own Growth Factors

 

A MINIMAL RISK, NO DOWN-TIME, LONGER LASTING ALTERNATIVE TO SKIN REJUVENATION

Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in growth factors. When this is injected into the skin, the skin is rejuvenated and new collagen growth is stimulated. The skin becomes younger and healthier.

Blood is drawn into a sterilized container. It is processed in a specialized centrifuge to take out red blood cells and condense the platelets. The platelet–rich plasma is then injected into the skin using a very fine needle after the skin is numbed with topical anaesthetic gel. Microneedling may be added to enhance the effect of PRP.

Aging changes in the skin, wrinkles, pigmentation changes, thinned skin, stretch marks and acne scars can be treated. Pure vitamins, peptides and nutrients may be added with treatment. Your skin can achieve a healthy glow within days. A series of 4 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart is recommemded.

What are the benefits of microneedling with PRP?

When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.

Is more than one PRP treatment recommended?

After the first treatment you will notice improvement in skin tone and texture almost immediately. It is recommended that you receive three PRP treatments performed four to six weeks apart to get the desired results. We also recommend a yearly follow-up treatment to maintain the youthfulness of your treated skin.

How long does the PRP procedure take?
Along with the microneedling treatment, the procedure typically takes 50-60 minutes to complete.

Can I have an allergic reactions to these treatments?
Since the extracted plasma is your own, or autologous—which means it contains substances that come directly from your own body—it is not possible for your body to have an adverse reaction.

How much downtime is required for a PRP procedure?
The downtime is minimal with only one to three days of mild redness, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. A post-treatment kit will help speed your recovery. You will be asked to stay out of the sun for 24-48 hours following the procedure and avoid washing the treated area until the next day. Some minor bruising and swelling might occur.

Why do we use PRP in combination with microneedling?
The results of PRP with microneedling are better than those achieved using needle injections. Microneedling is less painful and requires comparatively less down time. It also allows for more complete and even PRP penetration of the skin as opposed to injections, which is not evenly dispersed in the area being treated.

Who is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is a very safe and effective treatment for adults with all skin types who wish to improve their skin quality. The depth of the MicroPen can be adjusted to meet the client’s individual needs and objectives. Due to its low-risk profile, Microneedling with PRP is a good option for people who are not good candidates for lasers, such as those with darker skin types. MicroPen with PRP is also a very powerful tool for treating scars on the face and body.

When will I see results?
You’ll notice an immediate “glow” to your skin and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. The full results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment as collagen production continues.

Q&A

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
We obtain Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.


Historically, PRP has been primarily used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery to help speed recovery. Now cosmetic dermatology also uses it to help damaged, aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, youthful results.
