Under this procedure we utilize Micro Needling to “stamp” the skin creating tiny channels along the surface. Then PRP is applied topically to the skin. This can allow the full penetration of PRP deep down into the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin.*
Topically applying PRP can enable it to get into more planes in the skin.* Comparably, injections may isolate PRP only to the injected area.* Thus, micro needling may allow PRP to get into the skin more evenly. As a result, the total face is affected.*
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, can act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow* This may regenerate tissue. Thus, it can act naturally to smooth and tighten the skin.* In this way, PRP can soften wrinkles. In addition, it could create smoother skin texture and tone.*
Scientific studies dating back 30 years have documented that PRP can grow new collagen when injected into the skin.* Further, newer studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and aging skin issues.*
