The Power of Platelet Rich Plasma

The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. Platelet Rich Plasma is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.

How does Platelet Rich Plasma work?

A plasma treatment begins with a simple blood draw and can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with platelets, is collected in syringes and injected back into your body.

Growth factors are released and stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in a variety of areas. It’s like turning back the clock and what was old and damaged is made new again. Plasma procedures utilize your own blood so your body will readily accept the treatment without reaction or rejection. Platelet Rich Plasma procedures are minimally invasive and typically patients experience very little discomfort with no downtime.

The POWER of Platelet Rich PLASMA

“Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is rapidly becoming one of the most useful, natural techniques in aesthetic medicine.”

Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate the stem cells to grow new tissue.

The PRP Facial is among the first set of procedures to harness this technology in the field of aesthetics, utilizing the growth factors found in the blood – specifically the platelets – to activate the unipotent stem cells that stimulate new collagen growth and create new, younger-looking skin.

Advantages of using Platelet Rich Plasma

Since plasma is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, rejection or
skin sensitivity. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic concerns including:

  • Wrinkled or sagging skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Hair regrowth
  • Frown lines, crow’s feet
  • Scarring
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sexual wellness
  • Pain relief

Research suggests as the study of this technology continues, plasma therapies may eventually be able to treat a host of medical conditions as the benefits continue to grow.

Platelet Rich Plastma Facial

The Platelet Rich Plasma Facial, sometimes referred to as the Vampire Facial, is a simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Plasma derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling device. This technology creates micro punctures in the skin thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells. The plasma is used to simulate and rejuvenate stem cells that exist in the face.
