PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as Plasma Rich in growth factors is the latest tendency in anti-aging. The treatment reverses all the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, hands and other parts of the body. The advantages of PRP over other common anti-aging treatments like Botox, it’s unique natural quality. The therapy uses the patients’ own blood making the treatment hypoallergenic.
PRP Rejuvenation often incorporates fillers with PRP – which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – to enhance facial shape and volume. It is a simple in-office nonsurgical procedure which uses a concentrated serum processed from your own blood in conjunction with a dermal filler to increase the effectiveness and longevity of those fillers…or alone to call in the natural collagen building process.
A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich plasma – often called “liquid gold” – that is then activated and injected into the skin – or applied topically in a surface regeneration action.
The serum is activated by the addition of simple calcium chloride. The activated plasma serum behaves the same way the body would respond if there were an actual injury – healing platelets rush in to create a rich fibrin mesh. This fibrin mesh, in turn, calls out to natural healing cells, releasing growth factors* and stimulating the process of fibroblast production (the cells that create collagen) to energize and heal.
