Microneedling and PRP
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It’s a specialized technique that utilizes the body’s regenerative ability to aid in rejuvenation and healing. It’s widely used in other fields of medicine including wound care, skin care, sports medicine, hair regeneration, plastic surgery, and ophthalmology.
In the aesthetic world, it’s used for generating new collagen naturally through autologous transplant. There are multiple ways to deliver the PRP, including microneedling (“Vampire Facial®) and or subdermal. It’s often combined with other techniques to maximize regeneration.
Here at the em clinic, we only utilize medical grade PRP initially developed for medical therapeutics by Regen Lab.
The most advance mesotherapy gun on the planet. Painless and sterile technique with amazing results rolled into one. The application of the U225 guns is endless from hair restoration to scar reduction and of course face rejuvenation.
Intradermal with PRP: Most commonly known as the “Vampire Facial”, microneedling with PRP has distinctive advantages over regular mesotherapy. PRP contains growth factors, such as FGF, PDGF, TGF-ß, EGF, VEGF, IGF, and many factors essential for cell survival including nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, growth factors (such as IGF and HGF), and proteins.
Additionally, platelets also stimulate fibroblasts and endothelial cells to induce new extracellular matrix deposition and neo-vascularisation respectively. The result is new tissue generation through the body’s own healing process.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections rely on a technique both simple and safe, using the regenerative and healing properties of platelets. They have the ability to locally release growth factors, small molecules that act as messengers to initiate the process of skin regeneration.
Injections of PRP into the dermis, support, accelerate and increase the tissue regeneration process. PRP stimulates the synthesis of the different components of the extra cellular matrix (including glycosaminoglycans, collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin). PRP induces stem cell division and differentiation, and stimulates neoangionesis
A natural alternative to derma fillers and extension of the use of PRP. PRP is activated to accelerate collagen production and is placed in various planes similar to fillers to improve loss depth that have occur over the years. It also helps give the face a more health glow because of the natural nutrients found in the blood for cells.
