PRP Therapy is a form of regenerative medicine utilizing your own blood; blood contains components called platelets and platelets contain growth factors. Growth factors activate and stimulate cellular regeneration in the body.
PRP Therapy is effective in the skin for overall rejuvenation and healing and in the scalp to awaken dormant follicles and stimulate hair growth. When released, growth factors encourage collagen production and formation of new capillaries.
The treatment is simple and can be completed within an hour. A minimal amount of blood is taken from the patient and then placed in a centrifuge for separation. The Platelet Rich Plasma is separated and transferred to a syringe. PRP is golden in color, viscous and easily injected without pain or downtime.
Using your own tissue (Autologous) virtually eliminates the potential problems with allergies or rejection. Utilize your own stem cells for regenerative therapy. Clinical Trials and empirical data have shown that platelets can increase the production of collagen and Elastin.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy utilizes the growth factors in your own blood plasma to stimulate collagen production and increase circulation. The PRP is separated from your blood and then injected in areas showing volume loss, translucency and sagging. In short, this treatment adds volume to your skin and stimulates cells to reproduce.
Micro Needling Therapy creates tiny channels in the skin, allowing for better penetration of growth factors applied to the surface of your skin. The channels close naturally and the growth factors stimulate healing. The result is visibly tightened skin, improved texture, tone and a clear reduction in pore size, fine lines and wrinkles.
Aging is an inevitable part of life. However, they don’t mean that the outwardly visible effects of aging need to be left alone once they start to occur. Issues like wrinkles, lines, and stretch marks can begin to develop on your skin even from a relatively early age. Thankfully, a therapy known as micro needling can provide a natural and simple fix to much of these issues.
Micro Needling therapy is a type of treatment oftentimes used in combination with Platelet Rich Plasma PRP to rejuvenate your skin. This regenerative therapy can also be used in combination with PRP to stimulate natural hair growth in areas that previously suffered from hair loss. This therapy utilizes a number of tiny needles to create small channels or injuries within the skin to assist the growth factors that have been applied to the skin through Platelet Rich Plasma PRP therapy. This concentration of platelets is absolutely essential towards wound healing.
When micro needling is applied to the skin surface, the repair process of the skin is kicked into gear. Once this occurs, both elastic and collagen are naturally produced in the skin. These proteins assist with the reduction of stretch marks, lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and a lot more. The tiny channels created by micro needles within the skin surface provide a boost to the effects of PRP therapy, as the plasma is more readily absorbed into the skin. This allows the PRP to reach the deeper portions of skin that would typically be out of reach.
For the creation of Platelet Rich Plasma, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient and then separated with the help of a centrifuge. The separated plasma is then placed into a syringe and injected into the skin. The channels created by micro needling will close naturally once the plasma is injected into the area. Not only does the skin become tightened due to this therapy, the skin texture and tone is also improved. Visible results from this procedure take a mere 2-4 weeks to occur on average.
Because of its role as an anti-aging treatment, micro needling in combination with PRP regenerative therapy can be used effectively for many skin problems. As a natural method to anti-aging, there are a myriad of skin problems that can be reduced in visibility or eliminated altogether with the combination of micro needling therapy and PRP. Any volume loss within the neck or face can be reduced, as can circles or bags that exist under the eyes. Fine wrinkles and lines on the body can be tightened up to the point where they are no longer visible.
Any acne scars that you have, as well as acne in general, may be able to be cleared up. Stretch marks are also commonly treated with this therapy. The results of such a treatment will typically last upwards of a year before beginning to dissipate. When combined with PRP therapy, micro needling has also been proven to work as a treatment for hair loss. As is the case when injected into skin surrounding wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin problems, micro needling facilitates natural hair growth.
This therapy can either create new hair in a bald spot or create thicker hair in spots where thinning was evident. When utilizing this therapy, hair transplants are known to grow thicker than they otherwise would have. When the platelets from the PRP therapy are introduced into the skin, damaged hair follicles are repaired due to the natural healing mechanism found with this therapy in combination with micro needling. A study has also found that micro needling and PRP are able to waken hair follicles that have been dormant over time due to the introduction of growth factors. The changes in hair growth are most evident in the 3-4 months following the initial treatment.
There are wide arrays of benefits patients receive when going through with micro needling therapy. All of these benefits also apply when this therapy is used in combination with PRP. For instance, there are practically no possible contraindications with other medications or procedures when employing this therapy, which means that there's hardly anything to worry about. There's also very little risk with the procedure.
Side effects like redness, tightness of the skin, and swelling may occur for up to a few days once it's been administered, but these side effects are harmless and usually dissipate in under 24 hours. Healing is both targeted and accelerated, so you won't need to spend much time tending to the procedure area. The results themselves are generally rapid and last for quite some time. These results are entirely natural, so you should feel no hesitance in requesting the procedure.
PRP is used in combination with Micro Needling Therapy to stimulate hair growth naturally.
There are many benefits of using PRP treatment to promote healing for hair growth for both men and women. Highly concentrated growth factors in the form of platelets have been shown to generate new hair growth, thicken thinned out hair, and make hair transplants grow thicker and healthier. If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, it amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism.
After noting enhanced hair growth of transplanted hair after use of PRP, investigators conducted a small study of PRP effect on dormant non-transplanted hair follicles. The study hypothesized that platelet growth factors can “wake up” dormant hair follicles and begin the production of new hair. PRP was applied after scalp skin was slightly injured to induce platelets to release growth factors at the injury site. Enhanced hair growth and hair diameter was noted over the next 4 months.
