“Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments for Anti-Aging”
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is collected by drawing the patient’s blood; followed by using a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood cells. The process for collecting PRP cells takes about one hour. Blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries, which has now been found to be a great tool for Anti-Aging, Overall Sexual Health & Hair-Growth. As part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing, cell regeneration, and rejuvenation . Eclipse PRP® is one of the autologous systems we use that allows Dr. Slater to prepare platelet-rich plasma at the patient point of care. The platelet-rich plasma is optimally concentrated with minimal amounts of contaminating red and white blood cells. This system has been safely used in hundreds of thousands of procedures worldwide. We also work with the True PRP system and Dr. Slater can explain the difference and also price points at your consultation
Platelets release important growth factors that stimulate healing, which helps the body produce collagen as well as improves circulation. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors, can be 5 to 10 times greater than usual. PRP has at least 8 identifiable growth factors and is referred to as the magic healing power of our own blood.
HOW DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA WORK WHEN IT COMES TO ANTI-AGING?
Laboratory studies show that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP speeds up the healing process and serves as an overall Anti-Aging tool. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is known to increase collagen production, tighten skin, reduce pore size, improve the texture of skin, plump skin, heal scars and heal injuries in the area of treatment. The increased blood flow and circulation also has been shown to aid in hair growth and increased sexual function in men and women. Platelet Rich Plasma has been featured on “The Doctors”, as it relates to sexual dysfunction treatments such as the O-Shot for women and P-Shot for men.
PRP CAN BE INTRODUCED IN A FEW WAYS:
It can be carefully injected into the area of need, or it can be micro-needled into the area depending specific protocols, and Doctor Slater’s recommendation.
