Platelet Rich Plasma PRP” In Facial Rejuvenation
There is amazing versatility of our autologous PRP to show clinical benefits in a variety of indications. Facial rejuvenation is another area in which our highly concentrated growth factors have potential regenerative benefit.
About PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated solution of the patient’s platelets that may be applied to wounds or orthopedic sites to stimulate natural healing or as needed for clinical use requirements.
PRP is produced from a small sample of the patients’ blood using an advanced centrifuge that spins and separates blood components using precision separation technology (LED). Platelets are rich in growth factors that have regenerative capacity and stimulate healing. Platelets travel in blood and are generally the first to arrive at the site of injury. During the natural healing process, growth factors released from platelets help attract other repair cells, to allow normal healing to take place.
The PRP System harnesses the patient’s natural healing processes to providing growth factors, chemokines and cytokines known to promote angiogenesis and to regulate cell growth and formation of new tissue. Clinicians use PRP to harvest the platelets’ natural ability to promote hemostasis and to release cytokines into the wound bed with hopes of stimulating the rate of healing and improving tissue quality.
In a questionnaire results reported skin changes that included increased radiance (53.8%), followed by improved texture (50.0%), improved tone (34.6%) and reduction in fine lines (30.8%). Most patients reported these changes after three weeks of treatment.
The main reported benefits include skin changes such as improved radiance, texture, tone and reduction in fine lines.
The Dermapen is used for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scars, stretchmarks etc. Practitioners have also seen results with:
- Hyperpigmentation, melasma and alopecia:
- Skin tightening lifting and rejuvenation
- Improves acne scars and wound healing
- Improves wrinkles and fine lines
- Helps minimize pore sizes
- Improves stretch marks
- Treats and improves hair loss
The micro needling effects caused the release of growth factors and the stimulation of fibroblasts cells multiplication as well as collagen and elastin synthesis
The three phases we see with the micro needling from the Dermapen include release of growth factors under the skin, the stimulation of proliferation of the elastin and collagen fibers, the final phase is a restructuring and remodeling with skin tightening caused by collagen production.
