PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Facelift Rejuvenation
Fort Lauderdale PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Facelift Specialist, Bart K. Gershenbaum, D.O., offers the revolutionary new Platelet Rich Plasma Facelift for facial skin rejuvenation.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the next generation approach appealing to clients seeking a natural method to anti-aging. This is regeneration with your own cells and more specifically, autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an aesthetic practice, which is a safe and tolerable procedure. Platelet Rich Plasma is 100% biocompatible and safe. It poses absolutely no infectious risk to the patient because it is made from the patient’s own plasma.
PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy, a type of regenerative medicine with the patient’s own blood, uses components called platelets in the blood to rejuvenate the skin. Based on an innate wound-healing ability, the therapy is performed by injecting components collected from the blood. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. The growth factors, when released, induce the production of collagen and generation of new capillaries to rejuvenate the skin.
Platelets play an important role in wound healing. They provide initial hemostasis and release mediators to help modulate the inflammatory response and many of the cellular functions involved in wound healing. Contained in the alpha granules of platelets are multiple growth factors. Growth factors are proteins that impart particular biochemical messages to specific target cells through precise membrane receptors. Growth factors possess paracrine related properties which are stimulatory for mitogenic activities, cellular differentiation, protein transcription, chemotaxis, angiogenesis, and collagenase activities.
The entire process and injection time is simple and takes approximately 1 hour in total. Prior to treatment a blood sample of 10 – 20 ml is extracted from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 8 minutes. When centrifugation is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted and injected into the skin by an injection technique under topical local anesthesia. The forehead, peri-orbital region, cheeks, chins and dorsum of the hands, are the targets of aging and wrinkles, for rejuvenation. Platelets will gradually increase the amount of collagen produced which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin. PRP facial rejuvenation can be a one off treatment, but further microinjections can be re-performed at 4 weekly intervals for lines and wrinkles if the client desires.
Results are visible at 3 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone. Further plasma treatment is also popular and safe. The amount of treatments will depend upon the health and age of your skin. Normally it is advised to have 2 – 3 treatments 4 weeks apart. However your clinician will determine your treatment protocol according to your skin condition. In most patients the results last up to 18months. Repeat treatments will maintain the results as well.
