As we age, the body’s natural collagen supply depletes, sapping skin of its firmness, smoothness, elasticity and glow. This highly effective youth-boosting treatment helps increase your own collagen production to reduce the look of wrinkles, firm skin and enhance tone–instantly and over time.
This groundbreaking procedure can help reverse years of damage in just one session. Instantly, experience a brighter complexion and dramatically smoother, softer skin. As your own collagen supply rebuilds over time, the look of wrinkles are reduced, elasticity improves, and your skin is able to retain more natural moisture. Results typically last about 9-18 months, depending on individual patients.
The treatment of PRP is relatively simple and can be completed in just one session. We collect the PRP by drawing a small amount of your blood, putting it into an FDA cleared device, placing it in a centrifuge and spinning it until the platelets separate from the blood. The PRP is then injected into the areas of concern to smooth out wrinkles and begin the regeneration of the skin.
PRP is actually blood plasma containing a concentrated amount of platelets and other vital growth factors. The platelets are the most important part of this procedure, these are what contain growth factors and bioactive and signaling proteins. The bioactive, or healing proteins, are what begin to repair and regenerate tissue. This is especially effective in stimulating healing, as well as developing new blood vessels and acting as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. The signaling proteins actually call stem cells to the desired area to assist in the regeneration of your tissues.
The PRP is highly beneficial for increasing collagen formation, skin tightening, connective tissue regeneration, and skin thickness rejuvenation, and helps correct wrinkling or loss of firmness in the forehead, eye, chin, cheek, neck, chest or hand areas. PRP’s growth factors activate cells in the body to prepare for the healing and generation of new capillaries and collagen in the skin. In addition, the platelets initiate hemostasis (blood clotting) and balance the inflammatory response which is necessary during the healing process.
