PRP Rejuvenation in San Mateo

Over the years, the speedy recovery of wounded tissue in sports has been aided by PRP. How it works is actually quite simple. Your platelets are used to stimulate your body to produce growth hormones and enhance new tissues. Your platelets can be introduced either by injection or topically. This procedure would give rise to new collagen, which aids tighter and flawless skin with a clearer complexion.

About PRP Rejuvenation
What is PRP?

The acronym PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma. This cosmetic procedure often involves the use of fillers to improve facial volume and shape. It is a simple and fast procedure which involves the use of a concentrated liquid made from your own blood, mixed with dermal filler to boost the effectiveness and durability of the fillers or alone to enhance natural growth process of the collagen.

How does PRP Rejuvenation work?

A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. In order to separate the plasma and red blood cells, the blood is worked in a centrifuge. This process converts the platelet into PRP, which is often referred to as “liquid gold” which is then applied topically or injected into the skin, beginning the process of new tissue growth.

The action of the plasma serum can be likened to that of the body when there is a real injury – with the recovering platelets striving to produce a rich fibrin mesh. The results trigger the natural healing cells, making available growth factor and enhancing the process of fibroblast (the collagen creating cells) production to heal and strengthen.

You may have wondered about PRP Rejuvenation. Here's what you need or how it works.

Improved complexion, younger and healthier looking skin, reduction in scars and wrinkles, as well as a thicker dermis.

There is certified clinical evidence that PRP Rejuvenation works effectively for hair loss treatment although it is in an emerging phase.

The most recent advancement is the direct application of growth factor instead of using PRP to produce the growth factor. The effectiveness of the direct application of growth factor was proven in a study published in The Latest Hair Regeneration Therapy Using Proteins Secreted by Adipose Derived Stem Cells – The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery (Volume 29. No 4, 2012). The study showed an obvious regrowth of hair after four months with monthly application of Growth Factor.

There should be swelling for about 24-48 hours after the procedure.

Depending on the area you are looking to treat, you should expect a younger and wrinkle free looking skin within 2-4 weeks. While hair regrowth results should be noticeable within 4-6 weeks as hair grows one centimeter per month.

The common areas or parts for the procedure include the scalp, chest, neck and hands.

Fee ranges from small area $500, $1,000 entire face, $1,500 Face/neck

Usually once every 2-4 months. Once you reached desired result, maintenance 1-2 times per year.

Collagen and elastin production are cumulative so with each treatment you will notice continuous improvement of skin tone, color and elasticity.  Because it is your innate natural collagen, result can last up to several years with support from good daily regimen.
