Maximize the effect of your Skin Pen II Treatment by adding Platelet Rich Plasma
(PRP) derived from your own blood. PRP enhances the healing environment of
your skin by introducing growth factors that help to ramp up healing. Growth
factors cause your cells to increase the pace of healing and repair by working
harder and faster.
PRP is essentially an increased concentration of autologous platelets suspended
in a small amount of plasma after centrifugation.
As a patient, your blood is collected and centrifuged at varying speeds until it
separates into 3 layers: platelet poor plasma (PPP), PRP, and red blood cells.
The whole process takes approximately 12 minutes and produces a platelet
concentration of 3 to 5 times that of native plasma. The PRP is extracted and
then injected into strategic areas of you face as a filler. The growth factors in the
PRP go to work, causing the healing and regeneration of collagen which improves
the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The advantage of using PRP
derived from your own blood is that rather than just adding volume the way
synthetic fillers do, their induction into the skin actually stimulates the cells in the
different layers of your skin to regenerate to their former vigor. Another
advantage is that there is no risk of cross reactivity, immune reaction or disease
transmission with the use of PRP.
