Platelets are cells that circulate in our blood and function to help heal wounds and regenerate damaged tissue.
Several studies have now shown that using a high concentration of platelets in skin cells help stimulate growth factors that regenerate damaged tissues and promote the formation of new cells and collagen.
Platelet-rich plasma has been used in surgical procedures and orthopedics, and in recent years has seen extensive use in medicine and cosmetic procedures to help regenerate damaged tissue and stimulate collagen production.
The platelet-rich plasma is a fabulous procedure that helps improve the appearance of skin without surgery. It can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
It is a natural process as no drugs or chemicals are used, and the risk of side effects after the procedure is minimal since the patient’s own blood is used.
Platelets work best when used in combination with microneedle collagen-induced therapy (Dermapen). The microneedles create micro channels in the superficial part of the skin and allow better penetration of the platelets into the dermis.
After the procedure, the texture of the skin changes with a noticeable improvement in brightness, tone, and softness to touch. It also helps to improve scars and acne. This procedure is done in the office, no prior preparation is required, and can take as little as an hour to an hour and a half.
At Orchidia Med Spa, Dr. Young and Dr . Cuberos draw the patient’s blood and the process of obtaining platelet rich plasma is made in front of the patient.The patient receives a topical anesthetic to avoid discomfort during the procedure.
Some redness and bruising may develop after treatment that can last 24 to 48 hours.Platelets take 4 to 6 weeks to generate new cells, with results visible within a few weeks. Results can last from 6 months to a year.
The number of treatments required depends on how much damage there is in the skin und how much you want to improve your overall skin health.
What are you waiting for!! Rejuvenate your skin with a natural process using your own blood, without surgery or the risk of side effects.
