Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an extract of your own blood that contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing. It has been used in medicine for many years to accelerate wound healing, repair tendon, ligament, and joint damage, and help regrow muscle and bone. When PRP is used as a topical application with microneedling, it initiates a localized stem cell response. Microneedling is a technique used to deliver micro-injuries to the skin using tiny needles delivered by a high-speed automated tip. It allows PRP to penetrate the skin. Over the weeks and months following treatment, this stem cell response recruits collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts replace tissue that has been damaged or lost through the aging process with healthy glowing skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.
How is PRP isolated?
A small amount of blood will be drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube. It is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of blood products. Red and white blood cells are divided into platelets and the plasma. This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet-rich plasma or PRP. While the PRP is being prepared, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment.
Advantages of Cosmetic PRP
Potential benefits of PRP in cosmetic medicine and the anti-aging process include: reducing fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, rosacea, and total skin rejuvenation for tone and texture. Within a few weeks of treatment, improvement in overall tone and texture can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow at 3-6 weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles can be seen in the next 3-6 months. While PRP can have some lasting effects, it can be combined with other skin care treatments to achieve your overall goals. It is best to combine PRP treatments with a good skin care regimen at home, and proper diet and lifestyle choices. The PRP facial is an exciting natural and innovative tool in anti-aging and cosmetic medicine. Harness your own healing power with your own blood.
