A Fountain of Youth in Your Blood

April 10, 2018 7:27 pm Published by

You can heal your skin, even if you see marked damage or premature aging. If you want to put your best face forward without toxic chemicals, tap the fountain of youth that resides in your very own blood supply.

Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (A-PRP) is one of the safest, most effective and long-lasting technologies used in regenerating, remodeling and rejuvenating skin. Autologous means “obtained from the same individual”. The plasma used in the procedure to treat YOUR skin is extracted from a small sample of blood from YOUR body.

The activated growth factors in your platelets thicken, beautify and strengthen your skin by correcting defects, improving texture, enhancing contouring, and restoring lost volume. Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma injections diminish wrinkles, sun spots, stretch marks, and scars.

Even from the first application, your skin receives a nutritive influx that protects it and heals some layers. However, depending on the contouring and youthful look you intend to achieve, the regeneration may not appear to be as dramatic with only one application.

To help achieve the results you want, a series of an additional two or three skin regenerative injection procedures are scheduled within approximately 3 weeks of each other, to reinforce the regeneration that has started. New tissues will continue growing steadily and gradually for approximately 3 months. From there, the growth stabilizes and usually lasts 18 to 20 months, depending on skin care factors including: nutrients (diet, supplements, topical), facial expressions, general health, sun protection, etc.

In our office, Dr. Chica uses a potent skin analyzer to help her better identify the areas of skin damage and the type of damage before she helps a patient choose the best course of treatment, which could include A-PRP injections, electrical stimulation and/or injections of nutraceuticals.
