A small amount of blood (similar to what is required for a basic lab test) is drawn from the patient's arm. The blood is placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at a fast speed for five minutes to separate the liquid plasma from other blood components. The PRP is then applied to the treated skin, either topically or by injection. Major benefits include improved skin texture and tone, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, regrowth and thickening of lost or thinning hair, and improvement of scar treatments and stretch mark treatments.*
PRP Procedures: Use Your Blood to Revitalize Your Body
How does it work?
PRP with Micro-needling: also known as a PRP/Blood Facial or Collagen Induction Therapy. At MD Esthetics, we use the SkinStylis® pen - which is the ONLY micro-needle device that can be sterilized. It is programmable to puncture the skin thousands of times per minute using extremely fine needles, in a highly controlled fashion. Each puncture creates a microchannel that triggers the body to produce collagen and elastin. By applying PRP during and after the micro-needling, bio-cellular products are introduced into and retained by the treated skin, producing the desired benefits.
PRP Injections: a stand-alone treatment or used in conjunction with micro-needling. This procedure stimulates new collagen and enhances the growth of new healthy skin. It is also an effective treatment for stretch marks and loose, crepey skin. It takes several months for the full results to be seen, but immediate, short term benefits can be noticed as soon as injections are given. Growth factors start working immediately, and the injected platelets are activated and release additional growth factors that accelerate the desired effects.
PRP with Injectable Fillers: Also known as a PRP Facelift, combines the volume replacement of injectable fillers with the skin-enhancing qualities of PRP. Dr. Pedro will directly inject the PRP with the filler, where the full benefit of the PRP is delivered directly to the area where it produces the maximal benefits.* The combination of PRP with filler addresses most of the major issues contributing to premature or undesirable signs of aging skin. Very effective for the reduction of wrinkles, and for improving appearance around the eyes and mouth.
For micro-needling with PRP, most patients require at least 3 treatments (1 month apart) to achieve their desired results, given cells turn over every 30 days. After that, we recommend at least one session every 6 months to maintain texture and tone.
Ideal for treatment of acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, fine lines & wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, crepey skin, sun damaged skin, large pores, and uneven skin texture
