What is the PRP Treatment?
RejuvaYou has added Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to our line of treatments to help you “turn back the clock.” We are excited about taking anti-aging to the next level with PRP!!!
PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry,and reconstructive surgery for issues such as ligament and joint damage, wound healing, tendon repair and now… Skin Rejuvenation!!!
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a component of your own blood that contains high levels of platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing. When PRP when injected into specific areas of the skin, it acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. This process helps to address issues such as loose skin, sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, volume loss and even thinning hair.
How Is It Done?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Through RejuvaYou’s process we end up with platelets that have a high concentration of growth factors.
RejuvaYou’s process yields the highest supra-physiologic concentrations of platelet counts and up to 8 biologically active growth factors, such as: PDGF, TGF, EGF, CSF, KGF & VEGF.
The PRP is activated with a natural solution and re-injected into the face, neck, hands, or body parts. This achieves a regenerative effect by stimulating collagen, elastin production and the formation of new blood vessels. The growth factors that the platelets naturally release kickstart a wound healing cascade that gradually increase collagen which can increase the thickness and overall health of the skin.
Over a few weeks, the platelets will stimulate the growth factors to increase collagen production. Collagen rejuvenation can take from 6 weeks on depending on the starting condition of your skin and your lifestyle habits. Results are visible by 8 weeks and progressively improve gradually over the coming months with improvement in skin texture, tone and elasticity. PRP used in conjunction with RejuvaYou’s array of treatments will only help produce better results.
Because the PRP is processed from your own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment. PRP is absolutely safe, as it is just utilizing your own body’s growth factor to heal a problematic condition.
What are the Benefits of PRP?
As you age, the body naturally slows its production of collagen and the collagen that is present begins to break down. PRP can help to slow or reverse the signs of aging by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
