Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation
PRP has been used in facial rejuvenation skin treatments around the world since 2006. The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone and color with minimal or no recovery time. This revolutionary natural procedure offers incredible skin rejuvenation. Platelets in your blood contain numerous Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF). These growth factors stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes, which produce collagen and keratin. PDGF have a significant role in blood vessel formation, the cellular division of fibroblasts, and in synthesizing collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance.
This procedure is not similar to a surgical face lift. This procedure helps restore and enhance areas which require volume. Improvements of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within 4-6 weeks and improvement continues for 6 months as more collagen and keratin is laid under the skin, The results typically last 18 months to 2 years. Procedure takes approximately 60 minutes. Some patients may require two or three treatments, 12 weeks apart. Areas of treatment include forehead, cheeks, area around eyes and nose, smile and lip lines, neck, jawline, hands and acne scarring.
