Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments – a bold new approach in cell regeneration:
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection treatments are minimally invasive skin cell rejuvenation therapies. Platelets are naturally high in growth factors that trigger collagen production as well as encourage cell regeneration. PRP Treatments use your own blood components to promote cell healing and rejuvenation. Growth factors help in tissue regeneration and aid in stem cell activation.
PRP Injections promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.
How do PRP Injection Treatments work?
We remove a small amount (just one or two tablespoons) of your blood and separate the platelets into platelet-rich plasma. We use a Centrifuge (a rapidly rotating container that uses centrifugal force to separate fluids). After being centrifuged, the activated platelets are injected into the abnormal tissue, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells.
What Are the Benefits of PRP?
A safe and effective way to look and feel younger in as little as one treatment:
- Natural healing.
- Your body provides everything that’s needed for its own healing.
- PRP injections leave behind no scars.
- Compared to the cost of an open or minimally invasive surgery, PRP treatments are an affordable alternative.
- Quick recovery.
Recovery From PRP Treatments:
The entire process takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. The majority of the time involves drawing and processing the blood for the injection.
PRP Injection Options:
Useful to improve healing after surgery for some injuries.
PRP facial therapies such as ours are often known by names such as Regen, Vampire Facelift, Vampire Facial, O-Shot, P-Shot, and Selphyl. We are excited to promote that Urban Radiance uses the most advanced PRP system on the market, the PRP Genius Concentration System. The concentration of platelets within the separated plasma make a huge difference in the results one can expect from their treatment.
Because platelets are very fragile and are easily destroyed it is important to use a high-end system to withdraw and separate the platelets from the blood. The system that we use here at Urban Radiance yields a higher concentration of undamaged platelets that is more consistent and more efficient than any other device on the market. Our system delivers higher percentages of viable platelets and growth factors for us to use which makes our treatments high end and extremely effective.
Does PRP Really Work
Yes, most studies evaluating PRP Facial injections for rejuvenation and other cosmetic procedures have reported positive results, according to a critical review in the May issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
