WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA?

Your blood is made up of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a platelet concentrated

component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors.

WHAT ARE PLATELETS?

Platelets are tiny cells that circulate within our body and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels. Platelets are made in your bone marrow along with your white and red blood cells.

WHAT IS PLASMA?

Plasma is the largest component of your blood, making up about 55 percent of its overall content. The primary purpose of plasma is to transport nutrients, hormones,

and proteins to the parts of the body that need it.

HOW IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) PREPARED?

PRP is produced when a small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile, disposable container and then, spun to separate the platelets from your blood sample, resulting in a platelet-rich plasma.

IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) SAFE?

PRP is safe because it comes from your own blood, therefore there is minimal risk for allergic or immune reaction. PRP preparation must be conducted by a trained medical professional.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING

SKIN PEN WITH OR WITHOUT PRP

SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
