PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma
A-PRP (Autlogous Platelet-Rich Plasma) and ATS (Autologous Thrombin Serum) together permit the injection of a powerful matrix gel at targeted treatment areas. Whether treating wrinkles, folds, scars or poor skin texture, platelets slowly release growth factors over a period of time,
Important to understand is that A-PRP is not administered to fill the wrinkles but to stimulates the fibroblasts which will produce new collagens, and all the components of the extra cellular matrix (elastin,fibronectin, GAGs, HA, glycoproteins, vitronectin etc…) responsible of the skin regeneration.
Localizes facial areas that PRP can treat:
- nasolabial folds
- dark circles
- poor laxity cheeks & jawline
- peri-orbital areas (mouth area)
- crow’s-feet area,
- fine wrinkles in upper lips zone (smoker wrinkles),
- nose & forehead wrinkles,
- neck (venus circle)
- decollete (crease-marks on chest).
- back of the hands
- Stretch Marks
- Acne Scars
- Hair Restoration
Autologous Platelet Rich plasma (A-PRP®) is a natural therapy that exploits the regenerative potential contained in our platelets, in order to induce tissue repair and new tissue generation.
A-PRP induces regeneration of hair.
PRP is a natural therapy that exploits the potential contained in our platelet, including that of the hair bulb environment… increasing blood supply and enhancing hair follicle cell proliferation, resulting in stronger, nicer hairs.
In stimulating the hair bulb environment, A-PRP provokes a natural process that results in strenghtened hairs. Its natural and “autologous*” quality excludes side effects.
Is PRP right for you?
Two major alopecia types affects the population and in most cases, one will see improvements:
Androgenic Alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss due to hormonal imbalances, lack of nutrients or diseases. Treatment is challenging and previous therapies demonstrated low-effectiveness or side effects.
Alopecia Areata, a rare autoim-immune disease causing spot baldness.
What will my PRP treatment look like?
Performing A-PRP requires just a few mililiter of blood. The sample is centrifuged to concentrate the patient’s platelets in a little amount of plasma. This is then injected through a thin needle in the skin of the scalp that is virtually painless and with no downtime.
