PRP is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses your own plasma to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, allowing for the elimination of lines, folds, and wrinkles. Results from PRP therapy are natural looking and subtle. What’s more, PRP is minimally invasive, has no risk of allergic reaction, and can be used to treat nearly any area of the body without risks of side-effects.
PRP contains approximately 3 to 5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, it contains platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins that help in the rejuvenation of skin.
To achieve the best results we apply the PRP with a DERMAPEN: a fractioning micro needling device. The pen consists of 36 micro needles that pulse up & down as the it glides over the patient’s face. It punctures the skin and pushes the PRP substance into the “dermis” (the dense inner layer of skin beneath the “epidermis”).
About 2-4 vials of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm
A centrifuge is then used to separate plasma and platelets from the red blood cells.
We then extract the Platelet Rich Plasma and mix it with ozone to potentiate the effects.
The patient’s face is numbed with a topical medication cream to reduce pain from needling.
After the numbing medication is applied and left for about 30 min we begin the process of spreading the Platelet Rich Plasma onto the patient’s face. The Dermapen is used to push the PRP into the skin and glides freely and easily over the tissue.
We finish by applying a peptide-stem cell mask to accelerate the healing, reduce the swelling and improve the results.
