regeneration with prp (platelet rich plasma)

Want to turn back the clock with your own golden healing serum? Consider the powers of PRP (platelet-rich plasma). PRP is extremely versatile – it fills wrinkles, improves skin texture and hydration, reduces stretch marks and scars, restores vaginal health, improves sexual response, and dramatically increases hair density and quality.  PRP has been used for for many years to treat a range of health issues, from arthritis and tendonitis to bladder dysfunction. How can one treatment be so magically effective?

Blood has two main components: red blood cells and plasma. Plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. We harvest PRP by concentrating your platelets – it’s your own personal “golden serum.” When injected or topically applied to a wound, PRP releases those growth factors to attract stem cells, nutrients and new blood supply to the precise area it was placed. In aesthetics, we infuse it or inject it into the layers of the skin which induces collagen fibers, elastin production, and enhanced blood and nutrient flow. The result of this natural healing process is new youthful, healthy skin cells.

 

Why is PRP so important?  

Aged cells simply don’t function the way youthful cells function. Compared to youthful skin cells, aging cells have:

  • Less cell turnover and division = dull skin tone, roughness, age spots
  • 30% less moisture = dry, dehydrated, tired 
  • Decreased collagen and elastin = sagging, wrinkles
  • Weak cell membranes = nutrient loss, loss of structure

 


CSLC PRP Service Offerings Include:

 

PRP MICRONEEDLING ("VAMPIRE FACIAL") 

Utilizing microneedling, PRP is infused into the superficial dermis, improving texture with acne scars, fine lines, or an aging neck. Downtime is minimal and pink, dry skin generally resolves in 1-2 days.

 

PRP LIFT

When placed precisely by one of our experienced injectors, PRP is effective as an “all-natural filler.” It can also be combined with other dermal fillers (i.e. Restylane or Juvederm) or Sculptra for specific lines and targeted lift in the cheeks, under eyes, and jawline. The PRP lift is an excellent age-reversing treatment for clients looking for improved structure, youthful volume, and lift with the addition of progressive PRP benefits.

 

PRP LASER BOOST 

PRP is injected and topically applied on the same day as your ResurFX or FX treatment. This is proven to decrease healing time, enhance results, and prolong improvement following laser and other energy treatments.

 

THE OH! SHOT FOR WOMEN 

Thin skin doesn’t age well, whether it’s your eyelids or your vagina. The Oh! Shot, used alone or in conjunction with ThermiVa, heightens orgasmic response, boosts lubrication, stimulates firmer vaginal skin, and reduces stress incontinence. After PRP is harvested, topical numbing is applied and microfine needles are used to place the PRP just in the areas that matter most. This long-lasting treatment may be repeated every 6-12 months. Sexual function is enhanced and may be resumed immediately.

 

PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION

Anyone with thinning hair from aging, stress, or genes is a candidate for PRP treatment. PRP naturally increases hair count, hair thickness, and prolongs the growth phase of the hair cycle. Discomfort is minimal during and after the procedure; most clients receive injections with an injected nerve block.

Best results are seen after a series of 3 treatments performed 4-6 weeks apart. See and feel results after 2-3 treatments with an average of 33% increase in hair density and thickness after 6 months. One annual treatment is recommended to maintain improvement.

 

PRP FOR BREAST REJUVENATION

This treatment is for women who are happy with their breast size but would like to rejuvenate the skin on and around the breasts for more youthful tone, restored fullness, and subtle lift. Some patients report regained sensitivity in areas where it’s diminished as well.

 

PRP FOR STRETCH MARKS AND SCARS

Although nothing eliminates scars or stretch marks completely, the regenerative effects of PRP combined with lasers and microneedling provides the best results of any known treatment.

FAQ

 

HOW IS PRP HARVESTED? 

The PRP is isolated from a sample of your own blood at our office. The blood is placed in a centrifuge which spins and separates red blood cells from (and concentrates platelets into) the plasma. The plasma, now rich in platelets, is then injected using microfine needles or infused with microneedling.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

PRP treatments may be performed individually to maintain, preserve, or prevent. A series of 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart provides the most corrective and rejuvenate results. Annual "touch-up” treatments are ideal for maintaining.  

 

HOW SAFE IS PRP?

PRP is extremely safe. Since PRP is your own natural plasma, there is very little risk of any adverse event. Minor bruising, soreness and swelling is expected.

 

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

Hydrate well on the day of your treatment for an easy blood draw. Results will be best if you avoid anti-inflammatories (aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen) for 1-2 weeks after your treatment. Tylenol is recommended for any discomfort.   

If you have microneedling or lasers, follow the specific aftercare provided to you. Some minor bruising, soreness, and swelling is expected after PRP injections.

CSLC corrective lasers, injections, and radiofrequency treatments are extremely effective at improving the appearance and functioning of aging cells and stimulate a natural healing response. However, PRP dramatically elevates the regenerative response of your cells after these treatments, which prolongs and enhances the results. Annual maintenance treatments available.
