Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet rich plasma therapy, PRP, is an exciting therapy that can rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful appearance. It has produced remarkable results for clients who wanted to look younger.
How PRP Works
Platelets prompt massive fibroblasts, which are cells found in the skin that act like soldiers in the battle against aging. Platelets release growth factors (bioactive proteins) that work to eliminate dead cells and tissue and increase cell regeneration.
Growth factors attract large white blood cells called macrophages that eat up cellular debris and produce stem cells for tissue repair. Clients who want to reverse sun damage and accelerated aging will benefit from the tissue regeneration that PRP gives.
An Alternative to Dermal Fillers
PRP is a formidable alternative to dermal fillers for clients who want to add volume in areas where sagging and deflation has occurred. A gel serum is created when the blood is centrifuged and the platelet-rich plasma is separated for injection into areas on the face and body where sagging has materialized.
PRP helps to boost collagen because it stimulates 3-5 times as many stem cells found in normal blood. It can plump cheeks, soften the hollows under the eyes and fill in the nasal labial folds.
PRP has become known as the “Vampire Lift”. It can be paired with hyaluronic acid filler and laser resurfacing or skin tightening procedures, for a complete and natural makeover.
Types of Treatments
The growth factor availability and functionality of the platelets is directly impacted by the technique used for isolating and concentrating platelets. It’s important to note that not all PRP is created equal.
Many so-called PRP systems, such as test tube systems and lab centrifuges, fail to achieve the level of platelet concentration and white blood cell structure required.
The SmartPrep System
The Harvest PRP with SmartPrep System consistently generates the optimal platelet concentration that helps to optimize the conditions needed for healing.
Using the PRP Pen, the clinician is able to micro needle the area in question, creating an even disbursement of plasma in the treatment zones. Microscopic punctures made by the pen create a funnel for receiving the plasma serum and a channel through which collagen can be formed for minimized pores and firming skin, thereby improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
PRP can also be used to treat acne scars and stretch marks and works to smooth wrinkled skin under the eyes or on the hands.
