First we perform non ablative Radio Frequency Therapy on the area(s) to be treated. RF utilizes heat that penetrates the outer layers of the skin to stimulate cellular growth, collagen and elastin on the dermal level. You will see some instant results however the maximum benefit will be achieved within 6 weeks.
We now draw approximately 20mL of your blood which is spun up and separated in a special process allowing us to harvest a significant amount of Buffy Coat, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PPP (Platelet Poor Plasma). We then apply a local topical anesthesia, BLT (Benzocaine, Lidocaine and Tetracaine) to the areas we will be treating. This will aid these areas in becoming numb within minutes to reduce any major discomfort.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy utilizes the growth factors in your own blood plasma to stimulate collagen production and increase circulation. The PRP is separated from your blood and then injected in areas showing volume loss, translucency and sagging. In short, this treatment adds volume to your skin and stimulates cells to reproduce. Your PRP harvest is injected using very small syringes. Normally we use insulin sized needles for the aesthetic treatments and inject small amounts throughout the entire area. This allows for an even stimulation of growth cells. We concentrate any extra PRP in the specific targets areas requiring more treatment.
The last phase brings about tremendous results; Micro Needling Therapy creates tiny channels in the skin allowing for better penetration of growth factors applied topically. The channels close naturally and the growth factors stimulate healing. The result is visibly tightened skin with improved texture, tone and a clear reduction in pore size, fine lines and wrinkles.
The combination of these 3 steps is unequaled in their ability to bring out significant change to treated areas.
If physicians use a product for an indication not in the approved labeling, they have to inform the patient, adhere to good medical practice and have the responsibility to be well informed about the product, to base its use on firm scientific rationale and on sound medical evidence and to maintain records of the product’s use and effects (source: www.fda.gov)
