What is PRP and how does it rejuvenate skin?

PRP is an advanced treatment technology that utilizes ingredients present in an individual’s blood in order to regenerate their skin and revitalize collagen, leading to healthy, young looking skin.

Scientific studies have proven that PRP generates new collagen when infused into the skin and the most recent studies reveal that PRP can ease sun damage as well as aging skin problems.

PRP is basically a natural product produced from your own body. Through a simple blood draw, a little amount of blood is drawn from an individual into a sterile tube. Using a unique centrifuge machine, the blood is spun down in order to take out and concentrate the stem cells, growth factors and platelets that are very important for tissue healing. This little amount of blood with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors is referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

PRP is best known for its wonderful act of skin rejuvenation. When PRP is injected into particular parts of the skin, its high platelet concentration functions as a matrix that stimulates the growth of new collagen, revitalizes skin tissue and hence leads to a naturally smooth and firm skin. As a result, PRP treatment gets rid of wrinkles and creates a smoother skin feel and tone.

To learn more about PRP and to see a special demonstration, attend the Open House | Fall Edition on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 6 - 8 PM at the Renew Medical Aesthetics & Laser Center. For more information and directions please see the Open House Invitation.
