Platelet Rich Plasma - A GIFT from YOU to YOU!!

 

 The Stem Cells In Your Blood

Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the growth factors found in the blood (specifically the platelets), a physician can activate the unipotent stem cells already in the skin and tell those cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.

 

During the process  stem cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger skin. Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, and can be found in every part of the body.  For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue.  Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus taking the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher level!

Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma

From You To You

Within a matter of minutes, your practitioner can create autologous, which means from you to you, PRP and activate your stem cells for the introduction into problem areas.

Here's how:

 First: the practioner draws a similar amount of blood requiredfor a basic lab test. 

 Second: the practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.

 Third: The platelets are activated by using one of two methods that are natural to your body.  This activation of  platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma. The separation of your blood into its various components produces the serum that holds specific growth factors in place that call stem cells to the area and activates them to create new skin.

Activating 8 Growth Factors

Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA dermal fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face.  But, here's the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume,  PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.

  By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve: 

1. The skin color becomes a "younger" color because of new

    blood vessel formation. 

  2. New collagen formations in the dermis lifts the face back to a

    more youthful shape.

  3. Because the growth factors are working to build a new

    dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin)

    appears smoother.
