The Healing Power of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is known as the “Healing Power” within our blood. There are numerous clinical studies proving that PRP may induce the synthesis of Collagen and other matrix components which help cells repair and rebuild tissue, rejuvenating the skin. Essentially, PRP is your own body’s spun gold.

Your body’s natural growth factors have the power to repair torn tendons and ligaments, so just imagine the wonders it does for facial rejuvenation. Micro-needling PRP is one of the best holistic techniques for skin rejuvenation administered by a licensed; certified medical esthetician. PRP is trans-dermally delivered to a treated skin area through micro-needling with a Collagen Induction Therapy Pen, or CIT Pen, which creates effects that are proven to be safer than other invasive anti-aging treatments. As a natural treatment for anti-aging, PRP is comparable to a facelift without the anesthesia, downtime, or pain.

My process at Herbal Skin Solutions starts by drawing our patients’ blood into sterile tubes that are then spun at high speeds in a laboratory centrifuge. This process divides the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma, giving it a higher than normal amount of platelets, or PRP. The treated area is then cleansed and exfoliated. Because your Stratum Corneum (top layer of skin) contains up to 25 layers of dead skin, exfoliation of these dead skin cells is vital for the PRP to properly penetrate the skin. High frequency, also known as Ozone Therapy, is administered over the treated area to ensure that any microbial or bacterial properties are no longer present on the skin’s surface. Herbal Skin Solutions Professional Strength Vitamin C, E, Hyaluronic and Ferulic Acid (all ingredients included in one bottle) is massaged into the skin. This anti-oxidant solution creates a healthy environment for the PRP to thrive.  Then, we start the Micro-needling by gliding the CIT Pen across the treated area of the skin. This naturally stimulates the reticular layer, opening up the channels of the skin for the PRP to fully absorb into the skin. Your PRP is then placed on the treated area, micro-needled a second time, and layered with more PRP for full absorption.

Platelet Rich Plasma is an ideal substance on its own, but combined with the proper protocol of CIT Pen treatment it works wonders to fully rejuvenate the skin. PRP stimulates new cell growth and supports the body in healing. I encourage the PRP Collagen Induction Therapy Treatment for my patients that are in good health and express a desire for a more youthful appearance of their skin.
