Skin rejuvenation using Biotherapy PRP

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelets are the regenerative power house cells contained in our blood, that stimulate wound healing and tissue regeneration. Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When platelets are activated in the body they release healing proteins called growth factors.

Growth factors create
an accumulative result, which assists the body to repair itself by regenerating new tissue, improving blood supply and wound healing, all of which are important factors in regenerative therapies.

Important growth factors:

  • Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) – promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation;
  • Transforming growth-factor-beta (TGF-b) – promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) – promotes blood vessel formation;
  • Epidermal growth factor (EGF) – promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
  • Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) – promotes growth of specialised cells and blood vessel formation; and,
  • Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) – a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body

How does PRP rejuvenate the skin and tissue?

PRP contains high levels of platelets and when injected into skin tissue, growth factors are released, which are vital to tissue healing and repair. Tissue that is aged and damaged usually has poor texture, wrinkles, sagging and an uneven tone. PRP treatments are often given names for example we offer the Angel™ lift and there are other names such as the Vampire Face lift.

These treatments are often used in conjunction with treatments such as Dermal Fillers to directly address the texture and health of collagen tissue.
Skin texture will improve as new tissue cells grow and visible results are seen 3-6 weeks after treatment and continue for up to 6 months.

As individuals, we are unique so results will depend upon your overall health status, age, dietary variations, whether you smoke and other health factors including your unique skin type. Your clinician will discuss this with you in detail to assist in enhancing your results.

What is PRP used for

PRP is then injected into the areas that require tissue regeneration and rejuvenation.

The PRP created is used for collagen synthesis

  • facial rejuvenation
  • crinkling skin on the neck
  • décolletage and chests
  • crinkling around the eyes
  • acne scars
  • backs of hands and arms
  • post pregnancy skin stretching and stretch marks
  • in conjunction with surgery
  • scar revision
  • PRP and Fat Grafting

What does the process involve?

A simple 3 step procedure

  1. A small sample of your own blood is taken
  2. It is then processed in a highly specialised, state of the art system, specially designed to extract the PRP in a safe, clinical manner.
  3. This PRP is then injected into the areas that require tissue remodelling and rejuvenation.

Is PRP Biotherapy Therapy safe to use?

PRP is your own unique [autologous] blood and so you are using your own natural resources to repair and improve your skin tissue. It is using the incredible healing abilities the body has to heal and create new tissue.

The PRP is processed under exacting clinical standards, which all clinicians must adhere to when working with blood products.

The treatment of skin using PRP is often referred to as Vampire or Dracula Face lift we call it the Angel™ Face lift.
