What Is prp?
Prp (Plasma Rejuvenation) Therapy
Blood contains erythrocytes, lymphocytes, platelets and plasma. Platelets are cells responsible for clotting. They do this by adhering to each other and preventing haemorrhages. When blood clots, tissues around it will retract due to protein fibrin produced by platelet adherence. Micro-injuries produced by a needle will trigger a similar initial reaction, and thanks to the injection of active platelets, the contraction effect is significantly augmented. In isolating activated platelets suspended in liquid plasma (PRP), the physician is also able to extract mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors in genetically predetermined ratios. Injecting this PRP extract into skin, the platelets form a bioactive platform of fibrin clot, allowing the release of numerous active growth factors that promote tissue repair, new blood vessel formation and collagen synthesis.
Am I a Candidate?
Who is a candidate for this procedure?
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have early or moderate signs of facial aging. Typically those involve soft tissue loss in the midface with mild to moderate wrinkling of the skin elsewhere. Patients who are good candidates will sometimes have deep nasolabial fold areas which are improved as well. This technique is often used together with neck rejuvenation for complete results.
Frequently this can all be accomplished in the Clinic under local anesthesia. Also please keep in mind that the "stem cell facelift" restores lost volume of the midface and "lifts" the upper face rather than "pulling" the skin as in the traditional surgical facelift.
