PRP combined therapy is actually more effective than a single modality therapy. This great Co-application represents many advantages with a simple, cost-effective, safe method and better effect.

Wrinkle Removal – When injecting PRP into a nasolabial fold or hollow cheek, the growth factors that are contained in PRP regenerate collagen, which improve wrinkles and enhances skin elasticity.

Freckles and Blemishes – Various growth factors contained in PRP such as EGF stimulate cell growth and cell replication, which results in the removal of deeply rooted freckles and blemishes.

Pimple – Vitalized growth factors not only facilitate the active state of sebum, which causes pimples, leading to the reduction of pimple development, but generate collagen and elastic elastin fibers, which help healing acne scars.
Scars – Growth factors that heal wounds increases skin regeneration.

Platelet Rich Plasma Microneedling and Injections for face
This automated adjustable micro needling instrument vertically penetrates the outer layer of skin with a vibrating motion. The technique’s pinpoint delivery system stimulates and revitalizes collagen production by driving highly effective medical serums or your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) deep into the skin , minus the downtime associated with other collagen-increasing protocols. There is no heating or laser energy needed.

PRP Injections significantly improves Collagen production
PRP injections are a non-invasive, natural alternative treatment in anti aging, revolutionary anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation using your own blood. PRP commonly referred to as “ True Blood Therapy” involves the use of blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells.

This PRP is injected back into your skin and acts as stimulants to your own damaged skin cells, supporting collagen production which is stimulated over 2-3weeks to naturally reduce or eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles, and skin starts repairing itself and produces more collagen. This revolutionary treatment in facial aesthetic and anti aging is a natural alternative to botox and fillers, giving a healthier, smoother, glowing and more youthful appearance’’.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Acne Scars
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting new method using your own blood to correct pitted acne scars on the skin. The method of injecting your own blood into the face is new and is showing exciting results for patients looking to correct acne scars and rejuvenate their skin.

We use a system to spin the blood and separate the Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), which contains a plethora of beneficial growth factors that will help heal the skin and promote collagen and elastin regeneration. Blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and then put into the centrifuge, which removes white and red blood cells, leaving in only the PRFM. The centrifugation system converts your blood into “Liquid Gold,” a gel-like substance that contains only PRFM. Liquid Gold is called as such because it contains only pure platelets, which contains active growth factors. This platelet-rich blood is then injected into sites on the face with acne scars. The concentrated platelets release a host of beneficial growth factors that help to promote healing and stimulate regrowth of collagen and elastin. The platelets found in our blood do a host of beneficial things, such as stimulate the regrowth of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of young and healthy skin. When your own blood is injected back into your skin, the body naturally begins a healing process that helps rid of acne scars. We often recommend PRP as an add-on therapy to laser acne scar removal treatments, to deliver the best results possible to our acne scar patients.

PRP - FOR HAIR LOSS

Deborah Corrente offers Integrative Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Why does hair loss happen?

Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss. Hair loss can be genetic, hormonal or autoimmune. A variety of treatments have been used to combat alopecia, including medications with strong side effects, such as steroids. Other medications used to treat hair loss suppress the immune system and are even used in chemotherapy. These treatments have historically not only had serious side effects but the relapse rate is also high.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelet cells from a person’s own blood. PRP has been extensively studied and used in the treatment of wound healing. Medical research has shown that platelets carry with them important growth factors which induce and maintain hair growth and formation.*

ADD Microneedling:

Just as PRP and microneedling treatment are being used across the face and body to rejuvenate skin, boost collagen and stimulate healing, so is it being used on the scalp to stimulate new follicular hair growth and thicker, fuller hair for men and women. Rather than inject the PRP into the scalp with a syringe, our estheticians use microneedling, which is an almost painless technique, to apply the PRP. Microneedling produces thousands of tiny punctures in the scalp with a specific depth, through which the PRP can travel down to the hair follicles. There’s no downtime or special aftercare instructions.  PRP scalp treatments are usually initially done in a series of 3 monthly sessions, with touchups recommended yearly or more often if desired.

As part of our comprehensive, non-surgical hair regrowth and restoration therapy, patients are evaluated to see if they will benefit from this treatment and are advised on the scope of the treatment protocol.
When patients come in for their first treatment, their blood is drawn and the PRP is centrifuged to process out the PRP from the red blood cells. The scalp is numbed to minimize any discomfort.
The treatment process involves a series of PRP injections combined with the PRP solution being microneeded into the scalp. The area may be sensitive and red for 1-3 days.
Post-treatment, all patients are prescribed a Hair Fortifying Rx homecare solution to apply once or twice daily to the treatment area to help further stimulate hair growth and enhance results.
Most patients receive four initial treatments spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments every four to six months to retain results. While outcomes vary, most patients will start to see results after three months and will continue to see improvements over time.

Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelet cells taken from blood, these platelets have growth factors that help in the healing process of injuries. A Bioactive Cellular Treatment for Orthopedics with Platelet-derived Growth Factors.
PRP may improve tendon injuries as well as other chronic tendinosis. Specifically, it could be possible to treat an acute Achilles tendon tear non-operatively using a PRP injection. Non-surgical, ultrasound guided injection of PRP into the Achilles tendon within one month of injury, significantly improved a 90% Achilles tendon rupture in 6 weeks, leaving only a small focal tear. At 24 weeks, the tear was completely resolved.
