PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or Stem Cell Face lifts also known elsewhere as “Vampire” Facials involve an all natural procedure that improves the quality of your skin and helps achieve similar goals that are acquired through non-organic procedures such as botox, derma fillers, and surgery. The procedure involves extracting platelets from the patient’s blood and inserting the PRP into the face using micro-needling. The PRP process consists of inducing stem cells and growth factors which increases collagen production. The treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles, heals acne scarring, corrects uneven skin tone, diminishes indentations and sun spots, and improves overall skin health.There is little to no risk with the treatment because it is your own body’s natural material!
PRP safety has been established for over 20 years for its wound healing properties and it's proven effectiveness has extended across multiple medical specialties including cardiovascular surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, podiatry, ENT, neurosurgery, dental and maxillofacial surgery, urology, dermatology (chronic wound healing), and ophthalmology, cosmetic surgery. PRP's emergence into aesthetics, hair and skin rejuvenation began in 2004 in Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America in countries such as The United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Argentina to name a few.
Areas typically treated for aesthetic purposes and skin rejuvenation include: Crinkling skin around the eyes, cheeks and mid- face, neck, jaw-line, chest and décolletage, back of hands and arms, lips, and to stimulate hair growth on scalp. Almost all skin tones show that PRP is safe and effective because your own enriched plasma is used.
BENEFITS OF PRP
Along with the benefit of using your own tissue therefore eliminating allergies, there is the added intrigue of mobilizing your own stem cells for your benefit. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin including: improving skin texture, thickness, fine lines and wrinkles, increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and elastin, by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars, and by increasing hair growth at the follicle (on scalp). Other benefits include: minimal down time, safe, short recovery time, natural looking results; no general anesthesia is required.
We can also use own stem cells using LIPOGEMS® method which is a live, concentrated adipose tissue transfer that has a preserved cell and tissue microarchitecture which contains the structural components and microvasculature including pericytes, adipocytes, stem cells, and other cells that are essential to help facilitate a healing environment. A variety of studies over many decades have been conducted exploring the healing and reparative potential of fat and its ability to aid in the support, reconstruction, and repair of injured or damaged tissue. Research has shown that regardless of a patient’s age, their fat maintains certain reparative properties unlike other tissues such as bone marrow, which may lose healing capacity with age. Adipose tissue is accessible or abundant in most patients, requires only a minimally-invasive procedure to harvest, and is obtained from an autologous (own body) source, limiting the risk of rejection or infection.
