Platelet-Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation

Platelet-Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation

 

 

PRP Facial Rejuvenation works by draining a small amount of blood from the patient and then centrifuged to break down to its different components. The plasma part of the centrifuged blood that contains most of the regenerative and anti-inflammatory components (Cytokines, Growth Factors, etc.) is then injected into the skin and neck areas where required. This is a very personalized and individualized care since everyone gets their OWN blood centrifuged. Skin is preserved, collagen enhanced and regenerated while giving a better tone to the face.

Considering that there are no known side effects to PRP injections, with this procedure you are able to improve your appearance in a stress-free process. The regenerative process takes up to 3 months for collagen build-up/reshaping and the effect could be noticeable for up to 24 months in many cases. These are the good side effects of Facial PRP:

  • Enhances skin elasticity, tone and thickness

  • Stimulates stem cell differentiation and proliferation

  • Triggers angiogenesis (forms new blood vessels)

  • Creates a volumizing effect

  • Revitalizes your skin

  • Rejuvenates aging skin

  • Treats fine lines and wrinkles

  • Restores your youthful appearance

  • Promotes hair growth

Make sure you find a clinic that provides Regenerative Medicine services and not General Practitioners that have it as ancillary to their family practice.  Read more »

I found that too many of my untrained colleagues in the medical world claimed to have the answer to concussion and too many call themselves the “complete” concussion treatment or management centers. Unfortunately, very few can live up to that claim. Not my intention to criticize anyone’s approach to concussion, as I only intend to shed light on what could be a realistic approach and goal for the patients.
