PRP Skin Rejuvenation - Dr. Elan Singer Manhattan NYC
Platlet Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation (Vampire Facelift)
(Platlet Rich Plasma)PRP Facial Rejuvenation is a cutting edge treatment that uses the patients’ own blood to trigger regeneration within the skin. The blood is taken from the patient and then prepared using state of the art technology to create platelet rich plasma. Platelets contain a number of growth factors that stimulate the rejuvenation of the skin. The re-injection of the plasma stimulates the release of these growth factors which encourage new blood capillary formation and new collagen growth. PRP promotes new blood vessel formation, new collagen growth and helps build a new dermis so that the skin is plumped, refreshed, rejuvenated and appears visibly younger.
What do we think about PRP?
We love it and our patients are raving about their results. For the MODLX gold standard in PRP Skin Rejuvenation, PRP can be used in conjunction with the BTL Exilis Ultra and the Eclipse Micropen. The combination of these three therapies are the holy grail for skin rejuvenation at Modlx Face And Body.
How does PRP work?Blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. The platelets then form a platelet-rich plasma which can then be re-injected back into the patient. When PRP is injected into the skin, the platelets release a number of different growth factors which stimulate a number of different cells. One cell type that is stimulated during the process is the fibroblast cell, which is the cell type that creates collagen. Collagen is what gives skin a youthful appearance. As we age, collagen is produced less and less, causing wrinkles and fine lines in the skin, and treatments such as PRP therapy can counteract this. Additionally, another cell stimulated during the process is the pre-adipocyte cell, which is a cell type that can convert into a fat cell, which is especially important in the face to fill out lines and to contour the face. The overall result will leave your skin rejuvenated; lifting and brightening your complexion and knocking years off your appearance!
Is PRP Safe?
PRP Therapy is a 100 % natural procedure. As the PRP is made from the persons’ own blood, it does not create a foreign-body immunological reaction and therefore there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Research and clinical data show PRP obtained from the patient’s own blood is safe, with very minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications. Because the platelets are produced from your own blood, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission.
Patients can resume normal activity immediately and most patients report little discomfort during the procedure. The procedure may take no more than 20 mins to one hour and can be performed as an out-patient treatment.
