Platelet Rich Plasmapheresis (PRP) – using your own Stem Cells to stimulate youthful skin!
I am a FAN of PRP and I OBJECTIVELY evaluate my and others results. There is the PRP facelift which I do, where a tiny amount is injected with filler for optimizing filler results and prevention. I inject a lot more ideally for restoration and rejuvenation because more IS better, then filler later IF you need it and PRP is excellent for the entire body. Also – THE BEST TREATMENT FOR HAIR AND HANDS for anti-aging that I have seen! I do this a lot for faces, necks, eyelids, lips, hands for volumizing, lifting, tightening, abnormal pigment and redness resolution, decreasing pores and scarring, for hair restoration and regrowth and it is well known to make great inroads in restoring aspects of libido and sexual pleasure.
Important Information on PRP:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
Blood Derived Growth Factors
The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed. With a simple, quick and advantageous process, your we are able to derived a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.
- First I draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab.
- Then we place the blood into a centrifuge andspins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
- The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least 8 essential growth factors and signaling proteins. Platelet-rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood based biochemistry.
Because all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from you (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, before any treatment disclose all the medications you are taking (including herbs) with our office.
Growth Factor Production Known Effects
PRP is a viable and intact concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma.
Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)
Promotes angiogenesis which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
An important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature.
Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization for the intricate process of the skin repairing itself after injury,
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor CPDGF)
Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to the zone of injury. Promotes collagen growth and proteoglycan synthesis.
Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils, Mast cells
Activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues.
Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor
Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for t he growth of healthy tissue and bl ood cells.
Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
Keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferations directly enhance wound healing and the generation of new skin.
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
Plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation during the remodeling phase. Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.
