Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation in San Diego
Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation uses the healing power of platelets and growth factors from your blood to stimulate stem cells to help you to grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and give your skin a healthy and youthful-looking appearance.
How Does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Work?
With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, a small amount of your own blood is drawn into a sterile tube. Using a special centrifuge machine, the blood is spun down to concentrate and separate out the stem cells, platelets, active proteins, and growth factors that are essential for tissue healing. This small amount of concentrated blood is referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
PRP is returned into the skin via injection or micro-needling, at which point it initiates a localized stem cell response. Over several weeks and months, the stem cell response stimulates collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts work to replace tissue that has been lost or damaged due to aging with healthy skin. You'll look refreshed and rejuvenated.
Is PRP Safe?
PRP has been used medically for years to accelerate the healing process for wounds, tendon damage, ligament damage, and joint damage; and to heal diabetic ulcers and help regrow bone and muscle.
