PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
What is PRP? It consists of pure plasma-rich platelets with concentrated platelets and an optimal cellular content. Platelets are associated with several growth factors, which promote tissue reconstruction by stimulating the production of new collagen and blood vessels, resulting in smoother and healthier-looking skin.
Your own blood is used in the PRP treatment. After the blood is collected, the tube is placed in a centrifuge and spun to isolate the plasma-rich platelets. The undesirable red and white blood cells are then extracted out and stored in a separation gel. No foreign material is used during this treatment, which practically eliminate the occurrence of any adverse events.
PRP improves the following conditions: alopeciae, hair loss, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, photoaging, sunspots, sagging skin, large pores, hyperpigmentation, texture and complexion.
Micro-Needling or “collagen induction therapy” is a medical-aesthetic procedure that uses microneedles to perform controlled and precise microperforations on the skin creating microtraumas so as to trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Micro-Needling enables a more effective absorption of gels, creams and serums, thus reinforcing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
Micro-Needling treats the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improves skin texture, complexion and tone.
> Before obtaining a cosmetic treatment, it is important to schedule a consultation during which you can openly discuss your goals and expectations with a physician. The physician will evaluate your treatment options, the required amount of visits, as well as the risks and benefits associated with each procedure.
