Aesthetix is proud to be a leader in cosmetic rejuvenation utilizing the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP). Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated serum that is rich growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, and vascular endothelial growth factor. These growth factors regulate and induce a number of remodeling and rejuvenating pathways wherever they are directed.
The secret behind our practice’s high standard of reproducible results relies entirely on our skill level and familiarity with the procedure as well as our FDA approved platelet concentrating system. The Progen Platelet concentration system allows for safe, sterile and easy collection and titration of your own plasma. The system is scientifically validated with 510(k) clearance, providing confidence in the quality of platelets available to use for various applications such as natural facial volumization, scalp rejuvenation, wound care and in complement to aesthetic skin remodeling techniques. We add a second spin to harvest the “super plasma” or 5x to be injected under the skin. We use the first spin topically after microneedling, radiofrequency or laser resurfacing procedures.
Patients notice decreased healing time and improved skin resiliency almost immediately compared to patients who undergo treatments without PRP. Within 1 month, patients can expect improvement of fine lines, skin texture, and hydration as well as subtle skin tightening. This procedure is a vital part of our acne scarring and remodeling practice as well as our anti-aging therapies.
Platelet Rich Plasma is also applied to facial rejuvenation and revolumization as an injectable. Isolating a higher sterile concentration of ultra-pure growth factor (super plasma or 5x PRP), our injectors target key areas of facial anatomy to provide a natural lift, tightening and balancing of facial harmony and youthfulness. The benefits of this treatment extend from the invaluable fat compartments of the face, which dissipate and flatten as we age, through to the upper layers of the skin in the areas treated. This is referred to as a PRP facelift, with incredibly natural and gradual results which can take anywhere from one to six months to fully take shape. Many patients share that they feel as if the clock is gradually turning backward before their eyes as the following months ensue.
Finally, our last and favorite application of PRP is scalp rejuvenation. Using our Progen collection and concentration system, we utilize your own platelet rich plasma to halt and reverse the process of miniaturization of hair follicles seen in male and female pattern hair loss. As these conditions can be devastating to many individuals, the results are equally astounding and exciting. Hair loss is typically reversed and improvement is observed within the first 1-2 months; however, a series of treatments are necessary to produce a significantly restorative outcome. Scalp targeted PRP therapy is a quick and virtually painless procedure which will increase the diameter of hairs as well as their density of growth. It is an innovative and all natural approach which we frequently use alone or as an adjunct to treatment regimens.
