PRP Add On
Add to any Laser or Microneedling Treatment in the future to enhance results.
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that stimulates neovascularization and neocollagenesis to fill these microscopic wounds. In clinical trials, Microneedling in combination with PRP has been shown to increase results, particularly in the reduction of scars caused by acne in comparison to Microneedling alone. PRP can also be added to any laser treatment to further enhance results and promote timelier healing.
In recent years, doctors have learned that the body has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a form of regnerative medicine that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue.
Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It is composed largely of water and proteins, and it provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate through the body. Platelets, also called thrombocytes, are blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions.
Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process.
PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your targeted body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.
