Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a revolutionary approach to anti-aging, implementing information known to scientists for years, more precisely that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut.
Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the growth factors found in the blood (specifically the platelets), we can now activate the unipotent stem cells already existent in the skin to tell those cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.
We give our patients what they are looking for. A natural alternative to synthetic fillers without the concern for allergic reactions or unwanted side effects. According to several studies, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) must contain platelet counts of at least 4 – 6 times baseline in order to be therapeutic. PRP is rich in platelet growth factors as well as a fibrin matrix – the essentials for inducing collagen production and skin rejuvenation.
Platelet Poor Plasma is also a rich source of fibrin matrix which has been used for extra injection sites including the hands and upper arms, or as a mask post laser resurfacing. Within a matter of minutes, your healthcare practitioner can create autologous, which means from you to you, PRP and activate your stem cells.
During the process of the Vampire FaceLift® , Vampire Breast Lift, the O-shot, the Priapus Shot Procedures, stem cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger skin. Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, and can be found in every part of the body are activated. For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue, unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin, etc.
The Platelet Rich Plasma procedures take the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher, safe and cost-effective level, without pain, unwanted side effects or downtime.
