Introducing PRP Facial Rejuvenation!
PRP with SkinPen
The latest advancement in non-invasive facial rejuvenation can be found in our own blood! Our bodies naturally produce platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that is rich with stem cells and growth factors that allow the body to heal and rejuvenate tissue. PRP stimulates the production of collagen and blood vessels, improving the texture and complexion of your skin that can be seen in as little as 4-6 weeks. The production of new collagen will increase volume and minimize fine lines for a more youthful appearance. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and injuries and is now being recognized for its amazing cosmetic rejuvenation benefits!
What to expect:
PRP is derived from a sample of your blood that is taken in the office. The sample is spun in a centrifuge and concentrated at levels 5 times greater than that found in whole blood. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure optimal comfort. The SkinPen mico-needling device is used to deliver thousands of micro sized “injuries” to the dermal layers of the skin. These channels jump start the body’s natural healing response and allow for optimal PRP absorption at the cellular level.
What you should know:
1. PRP is very safe and has been used clinically for over a decade. PRP is made from your own blood, so it’s insulated against the risk of disease transmission and inflammatory immune response.
2. Not all PRP methods are equal. The Center for Aesthetic Surgery uses Harvest Technologies to promote the optimal concentration of platelets. Harvest PRP contains elevated levels of all your naturally occurring growth factors; these growth factors are maintained in precisely the same ratios found circulating in your body. Many other products simply don’t deliver platelets and growth factors at high enough concentrations. Although synthetic products are available, these products typically contain only a single growth factor.
3. We recommend that the patient refrains from exercise and wearing make-up for the remainder of the day after receiving their treatment. Please do not wash your face for at least 4 hours after the treatment. Patients can resume the majority of their regular activities after receiving PRP with SkinPen. Minimal flaking and redness may occur within 72 hours, but will dissipate.
