PRP, Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as platelet or plasma therapy, Selphyl ® or Regen ® , is a fascinating way to rejuvenate your skin and appearance in the most natural way possible. The latest in regenerative anti aging medicine!
PRP is part of a new category in medicine, Regenerative Medicine. This is an emerging field that allows you to restore damaged tissue due to aging or disease.
First introduced in the the world of sports medicine to treat injuries, PRP or Platelet rich plasma is an innovative treatment using your own platelets, also referred to as stem cells or growth factors, to rejuvenate your skin.
It is used in various surgical specialties to improve the healing process and help prevent pot-op infections. Cosmetic uses include classic injection techniques, micro-needling or even topical application to rejuvenate the skin, repair damaged areas such as scar tissue or stretch marks, and even stimulate hair rejuvenation.
During the treatment, a small amount of your blood in taken from your arm similar to the procedure for a blood test. The tube is then spun in a centrifuge, which separates the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma, which are filled with regenerating properties. This “liquid gold” is then injected in the area of concern. These platelets stimulate growth factors to regenerate your own collagen, hyaluronic acid and even new vessel formation.
This is a great treatment for areas of thin, crêpey skin, like the lines around the mouth, the eyes, neck, décolleté and hands. For the thinning skin under your eyes, this is a treatment like no other.
PRP is an extremely natural procedure, and can be used safely in all age groups. The goal is to revitalize the skin and improve it’s integrity.
