platelet rich plasma (PRP)
Rejuvenate your aging skin.
You can embrace the aging process gracefully and still have a healthy and youthful-looking appearance. To do this, you don’t have to look further than your own body for a natural fountain of youth. Inside of you is the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of your body. Stem cells do this for you every day of your life. Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation is a leading-edge procedure that harnesses the healing power of platelets and growth factors from your blood to stimulate a stem cell response. These stem cells help you to grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging.
Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of Cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual. While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, it does take time to work. If you are looking for an immediate effect, Cosmetic PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for quick volume correction.
Safe and Simple
Because the PRP is extracted from your own blood, there is no risk of disease transmission, allergic or immune reaction. As with all cosmetic procedures, however, there are certain health conditions, such as autoimmune and blood disorders, that may limit its use. As part of an integrated approach to skincare that addresses both internal and external factors, PRP is a safe, effective and natural way of harnessing the healing power of your own blood to help reverse the signs of aging.
Prior to treatment we provide a free interactive consultation to discuss your cosmetic needs and concerns. We will give you options on the best combination of treatments and St. James Medical Grade Skin Care Products to achieve your desired result. Platelet Rich Plasma with a fractional laser treatment is an excellent combination treatment for skin rejuvenation.
A simple blood collection is done and processed immediately in a special centrifuge. This concentrates and separates the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. After applying a topical anesthetic to the area being treated, the PRP is reapplied to the skin using a micro-needling device.
After-care will include a combination of St James Skin Care products and follow-ups to insure you receive the best possible results.
