What is PRP?
PRP has been utilized in several fields of medicine for its ability to help generate new tissues and aid in the healing process. As part of aesthetic treatments, PRP can help address visible signs of aging and skin imperfections at a cellular level. It is created in a multi-step process:
- A small sample of blood is taken from the patient
- The sample is spun through a sterile centrifuge process, separating the sample into its individual components
- During this process, the liquid portion of the blood, or plasma, is infused with more platelets than normal, resulting in PRP. While generally responsible for clotting the blood, platelets also contain several growth factors.
- The platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the rest of the blood sample and used during treatment for biocompatible results
How is PRP Used at Skin Spa Medical?
If you’re interested in having this treatment, you have many options to choose from at Skin Spa Medical. Depending on your preferences and aesthetic goals, we have four different treatment options available to you.
One of the least invasive methods of skin rejuvenation, Collagen Induction Therapy is an effective standalone treatment but can have optimal results when paired with PRP. As the skin is exfoliated and opened up during the Collagen Induction Therapy process, the platelet-rich plasma is applied and absorbed underneath the surface. This treatment can be used on the face, hands, neck, decollete, and for body scarring and stretch marks.
PRP and Collagen Induction Therapy Plus Injection
This treatment is similar to the regular Collagen Induction Therapy with PRP treatment, except an additional tube of platelet-rich plasma is also injected into the face, providing optimal results for skin tightening, scar reduction, and improving skin brightness and luster. This combination treatment can also be used effectively on the body for stretch marks and general scarring.
PRP for Facial Wrinkling
Platelet-rich plasma can also be injected into sensitive areas of the face such as the nasolabial lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and in other facial areas where wrinkling or potential wrinkling is present. The hands and other areas of the body can also be treated.
In addition to reducing scarring and treating visible signs of aging, thinning areas on the scalp have also been shown to react successfully when treated with the PRP and Collagen Induction Therapy plus injection combination. This can help revive hair follicles and promote the growth of your natural hair.
