Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Tap into your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Within a matter of minutes, we can create autologous (which means from you to you) PRP and activate your stem cells for the procedure.
Kim Kardashian famously got the PRP treatment done in 2013.
- First, we draw an amount of blood similar to that of a basic lab test.
- Second, we place the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate, separating the platelets from other blood components.
- Third, the platelets are activated by using natural methods. This activation of platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma.
The Stem Cells In Your Blood
Scientists know that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing burns or cuts. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the blood’s growth factors such as platelets, a physician can activate the stem cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.
Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, can be found in every part of the body. For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus, PRP takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a scientific level.
Activating 8 Growth Factors
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to hyaluronic acid fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. Not only does the PRP cause an increase in volume to improve that “caved in” droopy appearance, but it contains at least 8 natural growth factors that will continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
By activating these growth factors, all three parts of the aging process improve:
- The skin color becomes a “younger” color because of new blood vessel
- New collagen formations lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the outer most layers of your skin appear smoother.
PRP Facial reduce the appearance:
- Acne Scars
- Fine Lines
- Sun Damage
- Striae (stretch marks)
- Dull Skin Texture
- platelet-derived growth factor
- transforming growth factor beta
- fibroblast growth factor
- vascular endothelial growth factor
- epidermal growth factor
- Interleukin 8
- keratinocyte growth factor
- connective tissue growth factor
