What is PRP?
Plasma Rich Protein (also called Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, or PRP) has been used as a form of facial rejuvenation treatment for the skin around the world since the 2000s, utilized by forward-thinking skin and vein treatment centers like Vein Care Medical Center.
PRP treatment can be equated to vein treatment in that the procedure is ideal for individuals who are looking for a more gradual (but still quite noticeable) improvement when it comes to skin texture, tone, and color — without resorting to surgery. PRP is nonsurgical, minimally invasive and is a revolutionary procedure that offers incredible skin rejuvenation by utilizing the body’s natural processes.
The platelets in human blood contain Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF) in numerous amounts. These specialized growth factors stimulate the proliferation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts, which are key contributors to collagen and keratin production. PDGF play a significant role in the formation of your blood vessels, fibroblast cellular division, and in collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis. Collagen production can aid in correcting visible effects of wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance.
PRP Injection therapy is similar to vein therapy treatments and is offered at Vein Care Medical Center as an alternative to surgical measures like facelifts. The procedure utilizes your own blood to create a platelet rich serum which stimulates your own collagen and elastin production, triggering and promoting the natural healing process.
How it works:
PRP injection therapy uses a small amount of the patient’s blood, placing it into a centrifuge, which separates red blood cells from platelets. What results is a serum with Platelet Rich Plasma, full of platelets and growth factors which trigger and increases the body’s very own wound healing responses, stimulating collagen production in the process.
There are many benefits to Plasma Rich Protein Treatments:
- PRP utilizes the body’s natural growth and rejuvenation processes
- Patient’s own blood is used to create plasma-rich serum, ensuring biocompatibility and eliminating chances for allergic reaction
- Collagen production will be increased naturally
- Can be used on any skin type, and has been proven effective in both male and female patients.
