Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has long been used in medicine to treat a variety of soft tissue ailments, from ACL injuries to tendinitis. Today, PRP is also offered as a new approach to anti-aging on the face, hands and neck, as well as wrinkles, scarring from acne, and stretch marks.
PRP is created from your own body, using a small amount of blood to separate red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. This plasma contains a high concentration of platelets, which are cells in the blood that promote the healing of tissues and growth of new cells. PRP uses your body’s biology to trigger new cell production and collagen formation.
PRP is injected into targeted areas for collagen growth and tissue regeneration to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. The platelet rich plasma helps to soften wrinkles, as well as improve skin tone, texture and tightness.
At Cosmetique Aesthetics, we recommend using PRP therapy along with the MicroPen Treatment for best results. The Eclipse MicroPen performs micro-needling – also known as collagen induction therapy – for excellent results with wrinkle reduction, skin texture and tone, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scarring, and stretch marks.
